Billed as a community for creatives within the events sector, the initiative will be chaired by ISES member and Live Union creative strategy director Jez Paxman.

The forum will help creatives share ideas, network, promote creativity and attract creative graduates to the event sector.

The first session will canvas input from senior creatives to further define the role of how a ‘creative forum’ can best play for event creatives and the benefits it can bring to the industry.

Jane Hague, ISES UK president, said: "ISES represents the creative events professional and we’re always on the lookout for new avenues and ideas to educate, represent and bring the industry closer together. We’re delighted to be working with Jez and our membership to launch this valuable initiative."

Paxman added: "The UK event sector is world famous for its creativity, yet the creatives at its heart have no dedicated forum through which to meet, share inspiration or promote their discipline. It’s great that ISES are providing an opportunity for us to change this. The forum will be for a broad church of designers, writers, strategists and creative directors."
