EMA to partner with Annual Exchange 2018 ‘unconference’

A new unconference, Annual Exchange 2018 (#ANNEX18), for UK event professionals has announced the Event Marketers Association (EMA) will be the event’s official association partner.  

The event is due to take place at The Vox Conference Centre, NEC, on 19 July 2018.

Organisers claim the unconference concept is the first of its kind for UK event professionals with attendees driving the content on the day. Also collaborating on the event are EventHuddle and The Future in 15 Show, as well as the industry mentoring programme Elevate.

#ANNEX18 event director Helen Moon commented: “The alliance with EMA as our official association partner really drives home the essence of the Annual Exchange. EMA’s belief that ‘collective knowledge and experiences will always be greater than one’ combined with their commitment to education, knowledge sharing, best practice, mentoring and networking, goes hand in hand with the key objectives and deliverables of our exciting inaugural event and we are honoured to welcome and be partnering with their executive committee and members.”

EMA chairman Richard Waddington added: “The Annual Exchange concept is innovative and evolutional – inviting Eventprofs from around the country to come together to discuss issues and subjects that are important to them, giving the attendee the power to drive the discussion, shape the content from the offset thus maximise the value to you as the attendee.  We’re excited to be part of this exciting new event.”
