A-livex, a one-day exhibition for event organisers which will use hotel rooms as stands, is taking place this week, 20 May, at the Royal Lancaster London.
The event will be extra special as it will be the first non-pilot event to take place since restrictions in England were lifted on 17 May. The innovative format will see exhibitors occupy hotel bedrooms, where visitors will be enjoy safe, pre-booked meetings.
As part of Step 3, event indoors for up to 1,000 people, or 50% of the venue’s capacity, whichever is lower, will be allowed to take.
Some 50 exhibitors representing all corners of the exhibitions, conference and events industry will be on hand for pre-booked meetings and to help get organisers fighting fit with all they need to run their events in 2021.
So far, exhibition organisers from the likes of Informa Markets, Reed Exhibitions, Easyfairs, Clarion and CloserStill are among the 200 already registered attendees. They will be joined by organisers from some of the UK’s leading brand, experiential and event booking agencies including MCI, Cheerful TwentyFirst, Inntel, and DRPG.
There are still spaces left and no barriers to entry. Sign up here below.
Come and support your industry
Mash Media’s managing director, Julian Agostini, who will be chairing the content sessions, said he was excited for the return of live events. “The roll-out of the vaccine across the UK has been one of the great success stories and inspired the nation into a renewed sense of optimism,” he said.
“It has been a long, hard road, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be running a real life, in-person event. We won’t be dwelling on the past but looking forward. We’ve always spoken about ‘pressing the reset button’ without really knowing what that means: well, this time that’s what we are doing.
“Not only are we entering a new era in which we are more cohesive as an industry, but this event format, in which the hotel rooms will act as exhibitor stands, will serve as an example to inspire people to think outside the box.
“I’d love to see as many of you there as possible. We have 300 spaces, and most are taken. This is your industry, so come and support it.”
