This friday sees the first ever Conference for Conference Professionals, brought together by the team that staged the inaugural Conference Awards last July (3r Events).
Rory Ross Russell and Claire Walmsley are well connected in the events industry and the speaker line-up reads like a who’s who among corporate conference management companies.
Having been involved with ABPCOfor the last couple of years it surprises me that there isn’t greater greater synergy between the two organisations. The fact that both exist is testament to the state of health of the events industry and who knows, they may start working together to raise the profile still higher.
I’ll be taking photos throughout the day and will inevitably pick up on what’s being said – it’s hard not to. Pictures will be on line by Friday evening. My thoughts on the event will follow.
