Taking place on 12 June, the event is designed to help events professionals learn, network and share ideas. The one-day event moves to Olympia London with a refreshed design and focus for its second year, which follows a successful debut at etc.venues 155 Bishopsgate in 2014.
Conference content will combine keynote addresses from senior events industry figures with punchy, bite-sized, practical sessions. Held across the venue’s one-level facility, delegates will be able to experience several industry disciplines in one space and can network with leading suppliers in the Exhibition Zone.
“Olympia London Conference Centre offers a really diverse space that can be easily moulded to our vision for the event, so we’re really excited,” commented Caroline Cronin, Business Media Manager at PPA. “The venue provides a modern setting and a professional team that will enable us to mature the show at the industry’s rapid pace, with events now a huge staple of most publishers’ businesses.”
Anna Golden, Commercial Director at Olympia London, said: “We’re very pleased to welcome the PPA Connect to our Conference Centre. Several excellent events from the publishing sector have launched here and grown successfully with us at Olympia London. We hope the venue will provide inspiration for what can be done either to grow or launch a show, as well as provide a stimulating day of learning and discovery.”
PPA is working closely with Levy Restaurants, Olympia London’s catering company, to create a unique and memorable experience for delegates on the day. The space itself will also be transformed to reflect the day’s purpose, to show how to deliver a truly innovative event experience.
