Association Event Forum

This is an event within International Confex

Now a well-established date in the diary, the Association Event Forum (AEF) will again take place on day one of International Confex, 26th February 2019.

Inhouse Association Event Planners demonstrated their resilience and tenacity at the event in 2018 where, despite the most challenging of weather conditions, attendance at the event showed 100% yoy growth, a reassuring sign for the organisers that they are hitting the mark with compelling content.

Free to attend, the AEF takes place in a dedicated theatre at International Confex and delivers a variety of must-attend sessions, curated specifically for inhouse Association Event Planners and PCOs.

The event is produced in partnership with the Association of Association Executives and Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO)

Delegates are able to dip in and out of the one-day seminar programme according to their specific areas of interest and informal peer to peer networking and knowledge sharing is a crucial part of the day.

“The AEF has continued to grow in popularity year on year and we were thrilled to see such an enormous growth in attendance last year. Association Event Planners are an incredibly important group of visitors to International Confex and we are proud to have created a forum which warrants inhouse planners and PCOs taking time out of their demanding schedules to learn and share knowledge. The feedback from our delegates in 2018 was fantastic and we look forward to developing the event further for 2019” comments Liz Agostini, Event Director.

Last year’s programme featured a strong line up of speakers including Heather Lishman, ABPCO Association Director, as the theatre moderator, Mike Hewitt, Managing Director, Adaugeo Media; Kate Sargent, Deputy MD, Bioscientifica; Leah Carter, Global Head of Events, Association of MBAs; and Rebecca Harper, Membership & Events Officer, British Parking Association.  This year's includes; Rob Eveleigh from Brightelm, Nicole Leida from the NCRI and John Martinez from Shocklogic.
