Diaries out, pens at the ready; you know what to do.
App Growth Summit (February 7)
Marina del Rey Marriott, LA
What better excuse to jet over to the Golden State than to get immersed in the world of apps? It’s the dream for us geeks! This is the first event of its kind in LA. You’ll find dozens of sessions, workshops, presentations and expert-led panels from the pros at Facebook, NBC Universal and 20th Century Fox, to name a few.
MPI Changing the Game (February 9-12)
The Hague, The Netherlands
The European Meetings & Events Conference lands in the Hague for a 4 day game changing immersion. There’s plenty of time to get out and enjoy the surroundings with organised runs, yoga classes and museum tours. There are also interactive sessions to explore the four main themes: meeting perspectives, leadership, design thinking and risk management. If you’re looking for a fresh look on the industry then this is definitely an event you’ll want to check out.
Digital Culture Techs: Valentines 2019 (February 14)
8pm til late.
No Valentine this year? No worries. 2 rooms full of pumping tunes, feat. lots of cool digital treats throughout the night. A fun celebration of digital culture awaits!
BNC Event Show (February 20)
The Brewery, 52 Chiswell Street
One of our favourite networking events. The BNC Event Show features an awesome educational line up of seminars, great networking opportunities and some brilliant catering, gifts and prizes (hello, perks!). It’s always a busy day, so head in with high energy and get ready for a really productive few hours.
Event Buyers Live (February 20-21)
Returing to Heythrop Park, Event Buyers Live offers great opportunities for one-to-one meetings between #EventProfs and suppliers. Keynote speakers include Iain Duncan Smith MP and the Roundtable Discussion panels feature #EventProf topics from increasing footfall, to sustainability (and everything in-between). There are only 100 tickets available, meaning there’s usually an active waiting list.
#EventPlannersTalk (Feb 21)
The Twitter based event where you can join in the fun from the comfort of your home. Grab your laptop and head online to chat with other event professionals about the hottest topics in the industry. Simply follow the hashtag to keep up with the latest comments. This chat will be all about pitching, so if you’d like some tips, get involved!
Citizen Event (February 22)
On the last Friday morning of every month, #EventProfs have an opportunity to head to London’s West End for a relaxed start to the week.
