AEV

Enable networking

What  we do

In the events industry, we recognise the power of face-to-face contact

We and our members value the power of face-to-face media. We organise an increasing number of opportunities to engage with other venue professionals and, through our sister associations, members of the organising community and a wide range of suppliers that support and service the industry.

These opportunities range from smaller more focussed events, such as our working groups, through to our annual conference which provides the ultimate forum for the development of both relationships and business opportunities.
