One-to-one meetings

If you have some specific questions and challenges that you’d like some expert advice on why not grab a one-to-one meeting with two of our sponsors Media Maker or Page Tiger


MEDIAmaker is a team of events specialists. They know events inside out, from getting the strategic message clearly heard through the event, to the tech and simple ways to help make the event run smoothly, their team can help.

So if you’re struggling with the challenge of engaging your people so they really get the message, or need some advice to help your events go with a swing and some fresh ideas Alison, Simon and Nick are on hand for an informal chat and share their expertise with you.
