The commission to produce Aston Accelerator includes delivering the staging and managing the headline speakers for the careers advice conference. Around 2,700 undergraduate students are expected to attend.
Director of Blackberry Productions Steve Elliott said "It adds to what is already a busy roster of work for us in 2017 and enables us to develop our production service for more clients in higher education who require high-quality events that match their ambitions."
Aston Accelerator will include speakers from retail, politics, industry and media who will share careers advice with students ahead of a week of related events.
Aston University’s executive director of marketing and communications David Farrow said: "This is the first time that Aston University has worked with an independent production agency to deliver an event of this scale and we are delighted to have commissioned Blackberry, who offered an unbeatable depth of expertise and experience."
