Returning for its second year, the conference, which was organised by Robinson College, included a host of seminars and workshops designed to explore key concerns for event professionals, including maximising ROI, finessing content and ensuring sustainability.

Keynote speakers included PutneyRed’s Linda Moir and Victoria Darragh, EA from Hays PLC, who highlighted how event attendees could gain maximum ROI from their experience. Her talk also included a range of personal bugbears in events and she was keen to point out that event managers are often underappreciated in the work they do, with pay scales failing to match the heavy workload.

In response to feedback from delegates at the 2014 event, a conscious effort was made to provide more networking opportunities for visitors to meet and connect. The event concluded with a debate on the topic of ‘Degree versus Experience’, where it was agreed that the industry needed to look beyond this contrived conflict and see the value within both platforms.

The day rounded off with a gala dinner hosted by Robinson College, followed by a raffle and live auction where the 65 assembled guests managed to raise over £2,500 for charity. Post-event entertainment was provided by Off Limits, who put together fun and games to round off the evening.

Last year's inaugural Clic+ event saw Robinson College Cambridge win 'Best Use of a Small Budget' at the C&IT Awards 2015.
