The Association of Event Venues (AEV) has announced that it will be holding its 2019 conference at Manchester Central on the 4th July, followed by the associations 15th birthday party at a nearby venue.
AEV Chair Dan Thurlow (pictured) also revealed the focus of the conference, saying: “We are delighted to announce the theme of the 2019 AEV conference; ‘New Horizons’. We will be looking at innovation and how we can learn from other industries.”
Thurlow continued: “As venues, we strive to offer the best possible experience for all event stakeholders and, of course, our own teams. In order to continue doing so, we should not be afraid to look outside of our own sector to see relevant examples of expertise. We’ll be hearing the views and ideas from some excellent keynote speakers and will announce the full programme closer to the conference.
“As 2019 will also be the AEV’s 15th Birthday, the board will be marking the occasion with a celebratory birthday party in the evening after the conference.”
Full details of the conference, party and registration process will be communicated to member venues in the new year.
