The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has announced that the ESSA Conference 2019 will be held at Arena MK, Milton Keynes, on Thursday, November 28, from 8.30 am until 4.30pm. The conference will feature Tim Reid, the co-writer of the TV series Car Share, and performance psychologist, Jamil Qureshi, as keynote speakers.
The conference headline sponsor has been confirmed as beMatrix, while Aztec, Briggs Equipment UK, Europa International, The Barista, JFR Training Limited, InEvexco, Perton Signs, Jungheinrich, and Mash Media, will be supporting the conference as event partners.
Andrew Harrison, ESSA director, expanded on the announcement, saying: “This year’s conference builds on the feedback and experience of previous years, so there will be an equal divide between learning from external industry influence and markets, and more event industry-focused sessions. We’ve also increased the number of break-out sessions from the main conference, giving delegates more opportunities for targeted professional learning.”
The conference will be followed by the ESSA Chairman’s ball and awards night, also at Arena MK. Tickets for the conference are also worth a 20% discount on tickets to the Chairman’s Ball & Awards Night, where the five ESSA awards for 2019 will be presented, after the drinks reception, entertainment and 3-course gala dinner.
