ACC Liverpool is looking forward to welcoming C&IT as it hosts its first ever Northern Forum at the venue.

The event, which takes place from 25 – 26 April, is a dedicated industry forum for corporate and agency planners based outside of London and southern England.

The two-day event will include a programme packed with practical insight and a wide range of sessions being presented by leaders at the forefront of change in the industry.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for attendees to meet and network, including one to one sessions.

Senior event professionals will discuss challenges and issues facing the events industry through a series of panel discussions and case studies.  The line-up of speakers includes Becki Cross, managing director at Events Northern; Ben Phillips, client development director at Jack Morton Worldwide; Donna Fitzgerald, customer solutions director at Capita Travel & Events; Michael Lever, head of events at Manchester Pride; Holly Gaffney, local events manager at Lloyds Bank and Sonia Hickey, head of commercial event programming at The Guardian.

Sessions include Going from event planner to event strategist; Reinventing the way we network; Personalisation versus privacy - The dos and don’ts of data; and breathing fresh life into recurring events.  

The Forum aims to bring together senior event organisers and luxury venues and destinations who have a keen interest in working with people outside London and the South East and West and who want to connect with experts specialising in their areas of interest.
