A must see event for any venue team member

Our fifth annual AEV conference promises to be every bit as good as the past four.  Designed to give event venue teams a programme of content and a forum for discussion in addition to an opportunity to network, mingle and socialise with old and new contacts.

The event attracts over 200 senior industry professionals from around the world.

The conference will be of particular interest to those who are already engaging with the AEV working groups, a key resource for member venues. This conference is for everyone involved in venues, but especially: Event Planners, Catering Managers, Security Managers, Sales & Marketing Managers, Health & Safety Operations, IT / Technology Managers, Sustainability, Technical, and HR. In fact virtually everyone working in a venue team will be able to find inspiration at the conference.

The conference is open to all; venues, organisers and suppliers and special member rates apply (including AEV, AEO, ESSA).
