On the first night, guests braved the rain for the rides at Thorpe Park, before enjoying an evening of food, cocktails and networking. The following day the audience travelled to Mercedes-Benz World where they listened to tips from other event industry professionals, including Nathalie Maddocks, senior buyer, events at Jaguar Land Rover, Dawn Severn, events manager at AXA Insurance and Rachel Hobson, head of events for BAE Systems Applied Intelligence.
