The organiser of the VIP networking event, Event Buyers Live, has opened the event to a further five delegate spaces due to high demand.

Following the event registration’s official closure on November 30, 2016, requests have been pouring in to the event team to open more places for delegates.

The speaker line-up is the event’s strongest yet, with world-class events professionals including Maggie Crowe OBE, event director of The Brits, and Debs Armstrong, managing director of Strong and Co, joining the best business and performance brains such as Mark Wright, winner of The Apprentice 2014, and Dave Alred, performance coach, who nurtured Jonny Wilkinson into rugby’s most feared kicker. A full speaker line up is now available online.

Neil Fagg, event manager at Event Buyers Live, said: “We’re very excited to be able to offer these five extra spaces to potential delegates. We are being recognised as the industry event to be at, and this is reflected in the high demand we have experienced this year. With many ‘surprises’ planned, it’s going to be a truly ‘stand out’ event this year.

“Our speakers are one of the greatest assets of the event, with a real mix of content for 2017. If you would like to attend the event, I suggest you grab one of the last remaining spaces to avoid disappointment. Please note: supplier positions are now sold out.”

Event Buyers Live is a hosted buyer event for live event organisers and suppliers, which sees both parties sit down for 25-minute pre-planned meetings; as well as seminars and roundtable discussions. Taking place from February 8-9, 2017, at the Hilton Heathrow Hotel, the event welcomes event professionals from across the country, including international delegates from Italy and Romania too. For qualifying organisers, this event is free, and includes an overnight stay.
