Numerous keynote speakers from the industry have been confirmed for the inaugural one day conference and three day networking event, hosted at Emirates Stadium, 15 May 2015.

Keynote speeches, panel discussions and workshops will be led by some of the most successful event professionals in the industry including Colja Dams, CEO at Vok Dams, the man that closed Miami airport to launch the Lamborghini Aventador in 2013; Michelle Bryan-Low, Head of Customer Marketing at Google EMEA, creating major events in the UK, Europe and Middle East and King Dahl, MGM Resorts Executive Director of Event Design, responsible for designing hundreds of shows and events across the MGM Las Vegas portfolio of 12 venues including the MGM Grand, Bellagio and Delano Resorts.

The theme for the conference “Creativity Accelerates Business Growth” links the speed of modern business life to efficiently harnessing creative processes and producing innovative events and profits. Confirmed topics to be discussed include Kevin Jackson’s “Creativity: Why it makes you money” and, King Dahl’s “X to the 5th Power” - a design-focused collaborative session where King discusses the event design process.

James Morgan, Affiliate Chair at ISES EMEA, commented: “How do you use your creativity to produce great events and grow your business? It’s a question frequently asked and is fundamental to producing successful events. ISES Accelerate is the conference that will provide solutions to this question, bringing in ideas and expertise from award-winning speakers from around the world.”

ISES Accelerate consists of a full day conference on the 15th May, with three days of structured networking, including an opening party on 14th May and optional Essential London Venues tour on 16th May. Guests attending the conference will also be invited for a behind the scenes tour of Emirates stadium including the players change rooms and more.

We look forward to welcoming friends and colleagues from the UK and further afield to ISES Accelerate.”

Former European Business Speaker of the Year and keynote speaker at ISES Accelerate, Craig Goldblatt, will be talking on the topic of authenticity:

“Authenticity in business is a complex topic. Event organisers now have to be authentic to be successful; they need to have a firm understanding of their purpose and how to deliver that purpose. At ISES Accelerate, I will be delving into this idea, offering advice to understand an event’s core meaning and how to achieve end goals.”
