The organiser of Event Buyers Live is calling on live events professionals to register for the “must-attend” industry event, following the brand new announcement that registration is now open.

Event Buyers Live is set to return in 2018, bringing event organisers and suppliers together in a structured business and networking environment at the prestigious Belfry Hotel and Resort, West Midlands, on February 21-22, 2018.

Building on the success of the 2017 event, which facilitated pre-arranged face-to-face meetings between organisers and suppliers, Event Buyers Live 2018 promises to be a “must attend” for live events professionals that are looking to procure event services and discover new solutions for upcoming projects.

Neil Fagg, event director of Event Buyers Live, explained: “Our analysis and feedback from this year’s event was overwhelming and proves the events industry is still on the rise. Given that our organisers were managing monumental budgets, it demonstrates the sheer scale of our sector and the incredible business opportunities at Event Buyers Live.”

He continued: “The event has a new location for 2018, the striking Belfry Hotel and Resort, which allows us to build on previous successful events and deliver a professional environment where organisers can get down to business.

“We know that many live events professionals have organised a number of successful events and festivals this year and are now looking to the future. We, therefore, encourage those event organisers to sign up to the event.”

Fagg enthused: “Event Buyers Live is the industry event that every savvy must attend in 2018. We now welcome event organisers, agencies and in-house events teams to register for the event and secure their spot. It’s free for event buyers to attend so organisers should visit now.”

Based on current levels of interest and the number of enquiries from those wishing to attend, the event team anticipates filling the event well in advance. Event Buyers Live is building a strong reputation for solid business networking, an insightful education programme and the sharing of best practice. Hence, event organisers interested in attending should act fast if they wish to secure a place at the event, as only 100 organisers will be granted a position.

Craig Mathie, managing director of Bournemouth 7s, said of the event: “I absolutely love EBL and having been for the past four years, it has been great to see the excellently-managed and delivered event change and grow with the ever- moving industry. For me, it is without doubt the best forum to meet suppliers and discuss live events and I very much value its place in my diary.”
