Conferences & Exhibitions

We organise a number of key international events ranging from conferences and exhibitions that attract 2,000 delegates through to focused workshops for just 10 participants.

To ensure our events deliver on every level, we work closely with association partners, industry figureheads and supporting industry suppliers to stage meetings that provide our participants with the very best forums to exchange ideas and experiences, as well as conduct business. Supported by careful onsite management, our conferences are renowned for bringing unique approaches to sessions, as well as delivering input from speakers outside of the industries in which we are working to bring fresh perspectives to the table.

In addition, we believe viewing demonstrations of the latest products and services is a key requirement to understanding the latest developments for any sector. Exhibitions play a substantial role in all of our events and we always set extended periods of time aside at our events to ensure delegates have the necessary time to take in all that is on show.
