Event Summary

Our second Connect Agents Day of 2018 will take place on Thursday 16th August 2018 in Etihad Stadium, Manchester.

The Connect Agents Day enables you to network with the people that matter to you, including the Directors and booking staff from leading booking agents.

As a guest at this event, we can assure you great networking opportunities, in a fun and interactive day. To start the day we are hosting a quick fire question round, called '30 in 30'. Then to follow we will have our ‘Think-In - Talk-In’ session. These sessions will allow small groups of venues and agents to discuss and debate key topics and questions in the industry before agents rotate, allowing maximum learning and networking.

This will be followed by a networking lunch where Agents will be seated on every table, and rotate between each course enabling you plenty of time for questions and discussions.

After lunch you will take part in a team activity. Each team will be led by an Agent and will work together to complete the challenge. The variation of team building activites will allow each group to get competitive and have some fun in the perfect setting.

The day will end with a drinks reception, round up of our 'Think-In - Talk-In' session and awards for the winners of the team building activity.


Who Should Attend

 This event is aimed at those who want to network with leading booking agents, including venues and suppliers, in a day full of discussion, networking and team building.
