Win tickets to the party of 2018

The events industry is being invited to attend what is being dubbed as the networking party of the year, an opportunity for only 350 event professionals to come together.

With the support of the Association of Festival Organisers (AFO), the National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA), The Showman’s Show and Stand Out magazine, Event Buyers Live has announced the creation of an industrywide networking party that will see the voices of the live events industry come together and gather under one roof.

Taking place on February 21 at The Belfry Hotel and Resort, West Midlands, the pre-season party will take place in the evening following day one of Event Buyers Live, the buyer meets supplier event, and feature “stand out” entertainment, street food and a number of surprises.

The party is the perfect excuse to bring industry together, an opportunity for live events professionals to network with a host of organisers, agencies, industry associations and suppliers. The party is a ticketed event with Event Buyers Live guests attending free of charge and AFO and NOEA members receiving a 10 per cent discount.

However, this month, Event Buyers Live is offering one lucky Stand Out reader the chance to win five tickets to the industry networking party of 2018. The lucky winner and their guests will be able to network with a number of live events professionals, including representatives from European Championships Management, IMG, Broadwick Live, London Marathon Events, LoudSound, Goodwood, RPM, Music Plus Sport and Silverstone Circuits

“Event Buyers Live 2018 will be the event’s fifth outing,” commented Neil Fagg, event director of Event Buyers Live. “For the last four years, at the end of day one, guests have enjoyed formal gala dinners yet the wider events industry has requested that we bring the entire sector together in a fun and informal environment with great opportunities to network. Therefore, we are opening our doors, working with a number of supporters and associations, and inviting all live events professionals to come together and celebrate our great sector on the evening of February 21.”

Industry professionals who would like further information about the party should call 01795 509113, email or visit – tickets, priced £45, go on sale December 1 and only 150 tickets are available.
