The AEV Conference is the first and only event dedicated to venues.
Thought provoking and inspiring
The AEV conference is a thought-provoking and inspiring day for anyone involved in venues.
Launched in response to member requests, the first event attracted over 150 attendees and created a unique opportunity for venue teams to learn from expert speakers and panellists discussing relevant issues.
The content is created through consultation with members and delivered by a dedicated working group. The AEV Conference is designed to give venue teams a programme of content and a forum for discussion centred on the practicalities of delivering truly world class events.
In addition to compelling content, the AEV Conference provides excellent opportunities for getting together with peers from around the world to network and exchange ideas. The conference is open to all including AEO and ESSA members.
