More speakers confirmed for our Academic Venue Solutions Showcase 2020 Meet Up

More speakers have been confirmed for our Meet Up networking event at Academic Venue Solutions Showcase 2020 on Thursday 26th March.

Join us at Senate House to network with over 30 of the UK’s best academic venues to host your meetings, conferences, events and unique occasions. For every type of event, #itsacademic.

The latest confirmed speakers & talk topics are:

  • Danny Bent, Little Red Shorts – ‘The happiness of being you’
  • Heather Lishman, the Association Director of ABPCO – ‘What sustainability means for the events industry
  • Dr Rob Davidson, Managing Director, MICE Knowledge – ‘Harness the 5 senses to make events more productive and engaging’
  • Verity Wilke and Alison Curryer, IMC Prosolutions – ‘Creating a social buzz’

Academic Venues Solutions is an association for Academic Venues throughout the UK, which has 52 member venues. One thing that makes academic venues so different to the competition, is the diversity of the types of venues, all in one location. Universities are often spread across huge rural campus’ or city centres and might have their original 19th century teaching building, located right next to a newly built lecture complex with breakout and refreshment spaces.

This is the only networking event dedicated to Academic Venues, so it is a great opportunity to network with exhibitors, alongside bespoke workshops about industry trends, delegate wellbeing and conferencing in the future, and includes refreshments and lunch.

Why should you attend?

Academic Venue Solutions is working in partnership with PA Life/Forum Events to bring you this FREE event to attend and delegates can expect to ‘Refresh their Senses’ with the exceptional spaces that academic venues have to offer, during vacation and for some throughout the year. It offers a great opportunity to network with a range of venues all under one roof to update your knowledge on academic venues and which ones best suit the needs of your organisation.

Academic Venue Solutions offers a FREE advisory venue finding service for conference and event planners looking to host their events in an academic venue. 

Thursday 26th March 2020
