thank you for joining us

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the inaugural The Business of Events Conference.

The rationale behind establishing The Business of Events was to provide event leaders and professionals with inspirational insights to drive growth in their organisations.  Our speaker programme was focused on showcasing the strategic underpinnings necessary to creating tomorrow’s events, rather than providing specific training in the technical fundamentals.

We are pleased to report that our new two day conference succeeded in this objective. We have received extensive feedback from your fellow delegates that they came away with essential insights and new inspirations which could be employed directly into their event strategies.  We are looking forward to now establishing this event as an important industry focal point in the future.

We encourage you to stay connected on our social media pages as we continue to share event highlight articles and photography.

We’ll be back in 2020 and to be the first to hear the dates of the next event, sign-up to our free e-newsletter.
