Description

Come join us on the 11th July at the launch of our new free Event Connect series which builds on our successful annual MMU Connect conference to provide businesses with space and time to hear the latest insights and network with industry experts and practitioners to improve your events and hospitality businesses.

At the launch of the Event Connect series as well as enjoying drinks and canapes, you will hear tips and insights on how to manage and win business in the events industry in an increasingly turbulent environment from keynote and director of the Conference and Hospitality Show Emma Cartmell and panellists including Fay Sharpe of Zibrant, Elizabeth Conboy, Sales Manager to one Manchester's leading venues, Manchester Central and Holly Brett, event specialist from C2 events. For those of you interested in technology, an increasingly significant part of the events industry, you can expect fantastic insights on tech trends from Nick Tinker, Business Development Manager for Crowd Compass. You will also get to see and find out more about two technologies emerging in the industry from 3Words and iBookedin.com (Please note that the programme is subject to change).
