The third Association of Event Venues (AEV) conference on 28 June has been designed to offer event venue teams a "strong programme of content" and a forum for discussion.

This year the focus is on the practical and real-world solutions that will be facing venues in the future and the effect caused by the changes in the consumer space.

Chair of the AEV board Jeremy Rees said: "…this marks a response to the feedback and learning from our previous conferences as we move between city and regional venues.

"Informed by the feedback from the last conference we’ve chosen the theme of ‘Tomorrow’s World’, and we’re aiming to give our delegates a practical look into the future of events, and how they are likely to be shaped by changes in the industry, marketing, technology and other factors."

A conference icebreaker, held the evening before, will be hosted by The O2. 

The AEV will release further details of the conference programme, conference speakers and the ice-breaker event as they are confirmed.
