Disruptors take to the stage for Accelerate Conference

King Dahl at ISES Accelerate
This year’s award winning Accelerate conference - powered by the International Special Events Society – is delivering a collective of innovators in their fields.  The 3 day conference from 12th to 14th May includes an Opening Party and the inaugural Creative Disruptors Awards at the Ministry of Sound, a day long educational and networking conference at Emirates Stadium and a venue tour of some of central London’s most iconic venues.

The theme for the conference “Disruption Fuels Creativity” links with the way in which new ways of thinking, new processes and technology are disrupting the event planning, delivery and presentation processes.  Jodi Collen, international President of the International Society will be in London to welcome attendees. The stellar line up of entertainment at the Ministry of Sound and the speakers from Australia, Europe, the UK and USA, will provide attendees with an experience to remember.  

Friday’s education conference will be opened by Professor Joe Goldblatt EdD, FRSA from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. He was the founding President of the International Special Events Society 28 years ago. Nicole Yershon, Director of Digital Innovation from the global advertising group Ogilvy and Mather will be highlighting the latest digital technologies that are disrupting live and digital marketing. Blogger supremo and event technology expert Julius Solaris from Event Manager Blog will be running his internationally popular ‘Ask Julius’ session, where attendees can ask about anything they want to know about event technology.  

ISES UK President Kevin Jackson along with Deborah Armstrong - ShangriLa, Glastonbury and Summerland - and Sanj Surati of digital marketing agency Holition will be giving their take on technological disruption in the event space. More keynotes and activities that tie in with the conference theme including audience interactivity and some amazing new technology demos are also promised. The conference is open to members and non-members of ISES.  

James Morgan, Chair of ISES EMEA stated ‘after last year’s success with attendees joining us from as far away as the Balkans, India, Nigeria, Turkey and the UAE and USA, we have attracted some great speakers and content that is going to deliver a ground-breaking conference experience. Last year’s sponsors the Emirates Stadium, Cvent, Church House, Glisser, and the IMEX Group are supporting us again this year, alongside a whole host of new sponsors including the Ministry of Sound. This is testament to the success of last year’s conference’.
