Why you should attend Cvent CONNECT Europe 2019

Learn about trends and gather event, travel and hospitality tech tips, discover Baroness Karren Brady's ingredients for success and network with industry peers

Choosing which industry events to go to is never an easy task for event planners juggling busy diaries. But unless you want to find yourself experiencing some serious #FOMO this October, there is one event you can’t afford to miss – Cvent CONNECT Europe 2019.

Cvent CONNECT Europe is the only place to get more than 70 education and thought leader sessions, industry trends, learn practical event, travel and hospitality technology tips and have a chance to network with your industry peers.

More than 1,000 meetings, event and hospitality professionals are set to attend the event on 14–16 October at the InterContinental London – The O2. Since the inaugural European event in 2017, the conference has nearly tripled in size, highlighting the value that Cvent CONNECT delivers to the industry, offering attendees the unique opportunity to experience the power of live events, network, and learn the latest advancements in the meetings, events, and hospitality industries.

Conference highlights
This year, attendees will be able to gain valuable insights on how to foster their entrepreneurial spirit and deliver more impactful, world-class events from our brilliant keynote speaker Baroness Karren Brady CBE.

Not only is she the current CEO of West Ham United FC, but she was made a life peer by the Prime Minister in 2014, elevated to the House of Lords as Baroness Brady of Knightsbridge, and was also awarded a CBE from the Queen for her work in promoting Women in Business. Known for her resilience and focus, Baroness Brady will take to the main stage to describe how to combat fear of failure to get what you want and deserve, and share her top six ingredients for success and how they can be implemented.

In addition to Baroness Brady’s keynote, sessions will include: "The State of MICE Business", which looks at what 2020 holds for the meetings and events industry in Europe, examining the key forces affecting the larger environment in which hotels and venues work to grow their events business. "The Power of Storytelling – the Savoy Hotel" will showcase how the Savoy Hotel has utilised content-rich storytelling across a fully integrated marketing campaign to drive prospects, customer engagement and MICE business results.

A session entitled "What Event Organisers Want" will exclusively reveal the findings of Cvent’s survey of hundreds of event organisers throughout Europe about their budgets, priorities, preferences, concerns and requirements when choosing an event venue, while "The Future of Event Technology" will see Cvent experts discuss all the tech trends taking the meetings and events industry by storm and what’s next in the fast-moving world of event tech.
