The Association of Event Venues (AEV) has announced that the full-service brand experience company, Freeman and event software company Ungerboeck Software have agreed to be headline sponsors for its 2018 Conference, to be held at ExCeL London on 28 June.
Chris Preston (pictured), Freeman EMEA’s managing director, explained why the company chose to return as a headline sponsor, saying: “The conference’s theme Tomorrow’s World is highly meaningful to us as an industry and Freeman as a partner to the industry.
“Freeman is proud to support the AEV Conference and this theme as we are particularly invested in the future of the brand experience category and driving and demonstrating value through memorable and measurable experiences for visitors, exhibitors, venues, organisers and other partners alike. ”
Ungerboeck CEO, Manish Chandak, added: “As a technology provider, we support the conference’s theme of ‘Tomorrow’s World.’ Technology plays an important role in events today and that will only increase for events of the future and the future of events.”
This is the third AEV annual conference, it was born from the AEV’s working groups, and aims to consolidate the expertise and wisdom of its members on a diverse range of subjects. The conference will give event venue teams a programme of content and a forum for discussion based around this year’s title ‘Tomorrow’s World’, and centred on the practicalities of delivering truly world-class events.
AEV director, Rachel Parker, commented on the announcement: “We are delighted that both Freeman and Ungerboeck Software have chosen to be headline sponsors for a second year. Their continued support and commitment to the AEV is very welcome and will ensure that we can continue to deliver exciting and informative content.”
