Highlights

The 2023 conference was held at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre on Friday 17 November.  We welcomed over 260 event professionals to participate in a programme full of information, tips and actions in readiness for what's to come in the events industry and beyond. The theme was ‘fit for the future.’

We also held our icebreaker event the night before the conference.  120 of our conference delegates joined us at the Old Queen Street Cafe to catch up and network with colleagues whilst enjoying a Full Circle cocktail (or mocktail!), all kindly sponsored by Full Circle Events and Exhibitions.

Thank you to our sponsors and partners for their support and to our members for attending.

2019 Conference highlights

We welcomed over 200 professionals and executives to the AEV Conference at Manchester Central on Thursday 4th July.

The theme 'New Horizons' invited delegates to consider the 15 years leading up to the event, and to look forward to the next 15 years, and all the ways the world and the industry will have changed in that time.

After the conference, delegates readied themselves for the AEV's 15th Anniversary Party at Dirty Martini, Manchester's premier city-centre cocktail bar. Props and costumes created an elegant 1920's theme, and party sponsors Freeman, provided "Freemantini" cocktails created especially for the occasion. 

 

Thank you to our host venue, sponsors Ungerboeck Software and our event partners.
