In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Venues + Events Live had reached the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 London and Manchester exhibitions and replace the September events with a digital offering.
A new exciting virtual event will run across two days on 23rd + 24th September 2020, providing learning and networking opportunities for the thousands of event buyers across the UK.
Challenges are greater than ever
Highlighting her decision to support Venues + Events Live Digital, Liz Taylor, Managing Director at Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC) commented:
“2020 has been a year we will never forget. The challenges greater than ever. The call for event planners to show resilience and unity, the loudest I have heard in my 35 year career. For me, the past 6 months have been a time of reflection and opportunity. A chance to invest time and energy in new projects, as my event business is in hiatus. But keeping a cup half full approach; very hard.
“The key is realising the power within yourself. Discovering the strength, creativity and understanding that, for many, you are the essence of your company brand. I am delighted to be supporting Venues and Events Live this year, where will explain why now is the time to harness your inner strength and convert it to opportunity.”
Engaging content to inspire
With leading industry experts confirmed to discuss critical industry updates, visitors will get the opportunity to engage with the community through live Q&As, polling, and speed networking.
The virtual platform will also allow visitors to interact with the UK’s best venues and event suppliers who will be offering product demonstrations and one-to-one consultations live from their digital booths.
Zoe Jobson, Portfolio Director at Venues + Events Live proclaimed "We’re delighted to be able to facilitate a platform to bring together the events community this September. We understand it has been a difficult and uncertain time for many therefore it was vital that we offer an opportunity for learning and discussion.”
Venues + Events Live will return to London + Manchester next year and the 2021 events will now celebrate the delayed 15th anniversary.
