Companies and organisations all over the world rely on meetings and events to power their growth.

CONNECT17 is a two day event for anyone involved in the planning, organising or running of meetings and events.

Whether you are a CEO, a marketer, a PA or an event industry professional, CONNECT17 has something for you.

This is a place for professionals to experience everything they need to find success – the ideas, the connections and the practical skills. It is both inspiring and hands on learning. The events industry is an ever changing environment with a constant need to be ahead of the curve. 

With a variety of speakers, workshops, experiences and education, it is the only event that truly reflects the creative and strategic job that event managers do.

Packed with incredible new activations, innovative new vendors, inspiring talks, and so much more, this once-a-year experience is the perfect opportunity to connect, collaborate, and create lasting relationships.

It is the only event of the year that will give your organisation a 360 degree view of how to drive sales and engage with customers through the creation of event experiences. Experience all that the event industry has to offer your next event, learn from industry experts and network with the whole industry under one roof.

CONNECT17 is a unique experience where those involved in the organisation of events can discover, learn, celebrate and shape the future of the event industry together. If organising events is what you do, this is an unmissable event to help you plan and enhance your next 12 months of event activity.
