Academic Venue Showcase

The Academic Venue Showcase | 11 October 2017 | Emirates Stadium, London twitter logo

It’s Showtime for your events!

It usually takes time to find exciting new event venues. But at the Academic Venue Showcase, event planners can meet around 40 fantastic venues across the UK, all in one day. And with a great learning programme and free registration, AVS 2017 is one unmissable day.

The Academic Venue Showcase is organised by Venuemasters, the UK’s specialists in connecting event planners with academic venues. For over 30 years, Venuemasters has helped planners to discover historic and cutting-edge meeting and conference spaces at British universities and institutes. Academic venues are home to a huge range of facilities, which are ideal for training events, product launches, exhibitions, team building sessions and many more requirements.

AVS offers incredible value, where weeks of venue research, professional development and networking time are packed into a single day.

Event planners, PAs and agencies who attend will find:
Time to discover – One day at AVS sets you up with brilliant venues, new skills and valuable contacts you can use for the rest of the year! Meeting many venues under one roof allows you to discuss your needs with experts, and to compare facilities and prices.

Time to learn – Get ready for the most practical and fun AVS education programme yet. Punchy, 20-minute sessions teach valuable skills, covering the latest events innovations and technology solutions. Attendees will also learn new ideas for making events more purposeful, and keeping audiences engaged.
