AEV Conference details announced!

AEV Conference details announced!

We are proud to announce that our 2018 conference will be held on Thursday 28 June at ExCeL London.

Our Conference remains the first and only event dedicated to venues and we have focused our third conference on the theme of "Tomorrow's World" which will explore the profound changes heading our way, what the venue of the future will look like and how venue professionals can embrace the changing consumer space and how it fits with Generation X and the Millennial. Discover the journey of building one of the technologically advanced stadiums in the world and explore how we all can work together to reduce our plastic footprint. 

This year, we're delighted to welcome Keith Coats as our keynote speaker. Keith's global reputation as a presenter, facilitator and author is only exceeded by his expertise in helping professionals from The Scouts to IBM in leading their organisations in preparing, embracing and successfully managing future change.

This will also be the second year we have held an icebreaker event on the night before the conference. It has proved to be a very popular feature that's created a slightly different networking experience, with an emphasis of being together informally. This year, our icebreaker event is at the DC 'Dawn of the Superheroes' exhibition at The O2, and we hope it will inspire you, as venue superheroes into even greater achievements in the future!!

All information regarding the conference including booking and the icebreaker can be found at The conference is open to all (catch the early bird rate until 25th May) and special rates apply for members of the AEV, AEO, ESSA and NAA.

We invite you to attend so we can explore the future shape of the venue industry together.

Any questions please contact Alden or Dani.

We hope to see you there!
