ESSA signs Silverstone as new venue partner

The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has revealed Silverstone will be its venue partner for the coming year.

The iconic racing track, the home of the British Grand Prix, will be hosting the ESSA AGM on 26 April and will include updates from the Stand Builders Forum.

Silverstone will also play host to the association’s annual forum the ESSA G50+Conference on 21 November.

“We are delighted to have Silverstone as our venue partner, this relationship allows ESSA to have a home for its key annual events the AGM and the G50+Conference,” said ESSA Director Chris Skeith. “Members feedback requested a central location with a ‘twist’, so using some of Silverstone’s unique facilities and offerings we have been able to introduce some additional elements to each event which will help us deliver the best events yet in 2013.”

The circuit’s MD Richard Phillips said exhibitions and events are an integral growth area for the venue.

“As part of our long term strategic plan, Silverstone is committed to raising its profile within the exhibitions community and the relationship with ESSA will help us engage with the industry and showcase the Wing to potential future customers,” he said. “The commercial opportunities for exhibitors are endless due to the flexible space we can offer and the opportunity of combining a visit to the exhibition while enjoying a family day out at a race meeting.”
