In August 2016, C&IT
once again gave senior event organisers from agencies the exclusive opportunity
to get the freshest industry insights from world-renowned brands, build
lucrative business relationships with top event industry suppliers and
experience real thrill at exciting venues around Greenwich.
What was discussed?
Representatives from companies such as L'Oreal, ITV
Protocol, Banks Sadler, DRP Group and Ashfield Meetings and Events debated clients' pitch expectations, event
security, talent retention and protecting IP.
Sessions included: 'The Power of
Brand You', on how to develop personal branding and 'The Pitch
Factor: What Makes A Winner?', which featured a panel of client planners,
plus an event tech showcase.
Delegates were also able to choose to
attend two of three interactive workshops on Event Security and Crisis
Management, Talent Management: Recruiting And Retaining The Best,
and Protecting IP While Protecting Your Relationship.
Meanwhile, in ‘Size Matters...Or
Does It?’ a small and large agency debated the role of small agencies
in an increasingly competitive era of consolidation and ever-increasing
expectations from clients.
Details for the 2017 Agency Forum will be available soon!
