Back by popular demand is The Pitch Factor, a take away from leading brands on the do's and don'ts behind pitches and what ticks all the boxes for a winning partnership. Other sessions will include how to deliver events to millennial audiences, a look at the value of event technology and an exploration of how Brexit will affect the sector. The full agenda can be viewed here.

Last year, delegates heard from top brands and leading agencies including cievents, Banks Sadler, Barclays, L'Oreal and many more. This year’s line up promises to be as exciting as last year’s, with speakers on hand to discuss the key challenges and issues facing the events industry, and to share their expertise on how they tackled them in their own way.

The three-day event includes an afternoon activity on the first day, followed by two days of content, pre-arranged one-to-one meetings and networking opportunities, with a grand gala dinner on the second night.

The event is open to senior event organisers from agencies with significant purchasing responsibility. Find out more information and register for the event.
