London 2012 event group appoints UBM conferences

Agency named for Events 2012 & Beyond meeting

UBM Conferences has been appointed by the Events 2012 Development Group to manage what is being billed as "the first official conference for the UK events industry on the subject of the 2012 Olympic Games".

Events 2012 & Beyond will be the first in a series of conferences designed to help the event industry understand the Olympic and Paralympic opportunities leading up to the London games in 2012.

Organised in conjunction with Visit London and Visit Britain, it takes place on Tuesday 24 February 2009 at Earls Court Conference Centre.

It is timed to coincide with the Confex show, which kicks off on the same day, also at Earls Court.

Some 150 pre-registrations for the event have been received. David Sharpe, head of the Events 2012 Development Group said: "It is especially encouraging to see the level of registrations we have achieved at such an early stage".

Discounted delegate rates are available for members of the 2012 UK Event Industry Fair Pricing & Practice Charter.
