Symposium secures BILD contract

Symposium Events has won the contract to produce the British Institute for Learning and Development’s (BILD) annual conference and launch its new brand later this year. The conference will be held at the Royal Society of Medicine, London, on 16 May. Between 70 and 80 delegates are expected to attend. Conference provider Symposium Events won the contract on the strength of its previous work, said BILD director David Wolfson. “We were impressed with the way Symposium organised its Learning Technologies Summit in October 2006. We found the event to be well produced and intellectually coherent and so were keen to receive Symposium’s proposal for our own event.” BILD recently changed its name, from the British Learning Association, and Symposium Events will be tasked with launching the new brand alongside the conference. “This contract win is part of our strategy of growing our client business and capitalises on the skills, we have developed in the HR and related sectors over recent years,” said Symposium Events director Paul Gray.
