Day two of the Agency Forum began with a talk by Rich Wilson, CMO of Relative Insight, followed by a panel discussion on event safety with Chrstina Gilbert of Small Planet Group, Dave Greaves from Make Happen and Ben Hoeksma from BCD Meetings & Events. 

There was also an event tech panel on disruptive technologies with Alexander Bright, MD, Audience; James Maclay, MD, AOK Events; and  Rob Brazier, director, Rapier Group.

This was followed by a talk from Elliott Grant, director of incentives at Top Banana, on incorporating CSR into incentive programmes.

To finish off the day’s content sessions, Ellie-May Pennington and Abigail Humayun from Rapport gave tips for delivering an award winning event.

The highlight of day two was a gala dinner at the beautiful One Marylebone. Welcome drinks were served upstairs before guests headed into the chapel area for a three course dinner with generous amounts of wine. Four gold-sequinned performers took to the stage to belt out classic hits, as delegates danced the night away.
