The event is crafted to address the specific needs of UK and international association meeting and event planners, PCOs and AMCs and has grown year on year since it was launched in 2013. This year the conference attracted 98 association professionals – an increase of 49% on the previous year.
The move to Church House Conference Centre, located in the heart of Westminster, coincides with the new dates and relocation of The Meetings Show, which will be held at Olympia Grand from 14-16 June, 2016.
The Association Meetings Conference is held on the eve of The Meetings Show with content created by Linda Pereira, Conference Chair and Executive Director, CPL Events.
Steve Knight, Event Director of The Meetings Show, comments: “The Association Meetings Conference provides association professionals with targeted educational content which is relevant to their roles as well as offering a valuable networking opportunity. The QEII Centre, our previous venue, has been a great partner and supporter and we would like to thank them for being part of its success. Church House Conference Centre provides us with an equally impressive setting right in the heart of Westminster; it has extensive experience of the Association market and perfectly balances a historic setting with high end modern facilities and we look forward to working alongside them as we seek to attract even more association professionals to attend the event.”
Robin Parker, General Manager of Church House Conference Centre, comments: “We have exhibited at the show to great success, watching it grow from strength to strength. We know and understand the Association market and look forward to working with the organisers of the conference to deliver an event to a global audience of industry leaders.”
