UV Expo 2022, a multi-city hybrid conference and exhibition for event organisers, will take place on 12 January 2022.
Curated by Unique Venues of Great Britain, and supported by partners including World Span, Clear Agency and Selling Savvy, the event will be held simultaneously in Birmingham, Leeds, London and Manchester, as well as online.
Based on three fundamental principles: innovate, explore and collaborate, the event will feature industry specialists, who will share their stories on success; a hybrid exhibition for venues and suppliers; followed by a session around building relationships amongst planners and venues.
Professor Damien Hughes, from The High-Performance Podcast, has been announced as the host for the first session around innovation, leading guests through a Q&A and highlighting their journey to success.
In the explore session, the exhibition will allow guests to engage with venues and event suppliers from across the UK, with an opportunity to network and connect.
The day will conclude with the collaboration session, with interactive breakouts and a panel that will discuss how to build lucrative and authentic relationships between venues and event agents.
The team behind the event aims to operate UV Expo 2022 on a not-for-profit-basis and donate to UKHarvest, the food waste charity.
Headline sponsors confirmed are World Span Events and Experiences, with session partners listed as Manchester Central, Clear Agency and Selling Savvy.
