Forum Events & Media Group, the leading organiser of face-to-face meetings-based events, has launched its digital LIVE brand in the events industry.
The concept of LIVE is to deliver on point content, powering industry intervention through expert panellists and audience interaction.
The event also provides a platform for industry suppliers to present their products and services via Champion Solution sessions relating to discussion points.
Having reacted swiftly to changing circumstances, Forum – like many other event businesses – has expanded its digital offering to their community, learning and developing their skillsets to adapt to this new digital events world.
“There are many free webinars and expert content available across many industries and Forum has not invented anything new. However, by allowing industry suppliers to pitch their solutions to audiences, our suppliers and buyers are one step closer to re-connecting,” said Sarah Beall, MD at Forum Events and Media Group
The first Event Organisers LIVE took place on Thursday September 24th and was attended by event professionals across agencies, exhibition companies and corporate businesses. Martin Fullard, Editorial Director at Mash Media, hosted a day full of content and thought-provoking discussion on event technology, mental health, retaining industry talent and motivating staff and event visitors.
The discussions were facilitated thanks to a line-up of industry experts and thought-leaders, including:
- PREPARING FOR THE CHALLENGES AHEAD AS THE EVENT INDUSTRY RETURNS TO BUSINESS
