The Association of Event Venues (AEV) is to run its first ever conference, aimed at personnel working within members’ venues.
Full conference programme details have yet to be released, but the event is set to take place at the Business Design Centre, London on 2 June 2016.
The AEV has said the conference agenda will cover many areas of venue management and bring in external speakers to share knowledge of customer experience and best practice.
A working group has been set up to manage the event, including AEV chair Graham Stephenson of the BDC, Kathryn James of the NEC, Jeremy Rees of Excel London, Alison Griffin of The International Centre, Telford, Dan Thurlow of the SECC and AEV director Rachel Parker.
Stephenson said: “Having a venue specific conference has been something we have discussed for quite some time, so I am delighted that we are now able to announce our first conference in June.
“There are plenty of ideas surrounding the content and format for the day and we will be announcing full details in the coming weeks but it will be focused on providing venue teams with insight, information and an opportunity to share information with one another.”
