EEF Venues’ Broadway House meetings and conference venue in Westminster, is to host an #EventPlannersTalk live event on 25 July.
Organised by event industry blogger, Irina Trofimovskaya, founder of The MICE Blog, the evening will have as its theme: ‘The perfect pitch – what clients are looking for’.
The forum is open to event planners, agencies and bookers, or anyone within the industry seeking insight into the pitching process. Organisers say it will explore costings, pitfalls and preparation to briefings, communication, creativity and challenges.
The event will be moderated by Caleb Parker, HBAA technology and innovation chair.
Speakers will include Deborah Kelly, business development manager – UK, London & Partners; Gareth Dimelow, founder and creative strategist, LIFTD, and Mike Walker, MD of MGN Events.
“Getting your pitch right is a hot topic in the events industry and one that is certainly worth further discussion,” says Walker. “I am looking forward to covering issues such as how much time to spend on a pitch, how the pitch process works and how to make your pitch perfect.”
Trofimovskaya adds: “The pitching process can be long, challenging and costly, not only for the client but also for the agency. Some agencies can afford it, but smaller agencies sometimes need to ‘pitch to play’ to establish a relationship.
“We are hoping to explore all aspects of the process, and share insight and knowledge while networking in the lovely surroundings of Broadway House.”
