Shining the spotlight on Network under the star’s key-note speakers

09 Jun 2016

With less than a month to go, Network under the stars are shining the spotlight on the event’s two keynote speakers—managing director at Zibrant, Fay Sharpe and founder and editor of Women in Leadership at Guardian, Harriett Minter.

Speaker Spotlight: Fay Sharpe

With more than 25 years’ experience in events, and as the creator of mentoring initiative, Fast Forward 15, very few are better placed to motivate young female industry professionals than Zibrant founder, Fay Sharpe.

Perfecting the press stunt

Last year, iconic English rock band, The Stone Roses, sent fans into a tizzy by announcing a small come-back tour. Rather than send out a standard press release to share the details—fans were told to keep an eye out for posters around their city; if the posters turned up, so too would The Stone Roses. Whilst their reunion tour would have garnered a good amount of coverage anyway, this stunt excelled it to a whole new level.

Olympia London is pleased to announce that their Conference Centre has been awarded Best Venue under 8000m2 at the recent Exhibition News Awards.

Commercial Director at Olympia London, Anna Golden said, “We found that there was a perception within the industry that Olympia London was a venue better suited to larger events and, as a result, it was decided that 2015 was the year to shine the spotlight on the purpose-built Conference Centre. To see the hard work of the team be recognised in this way is very special and truly well-deserved.”

The future of exhibitions

Annie Byrne, Editor of Exhibition News gives her thoughts on what’s next for events…

"Whether it’s understanding the newest piece of technology or creating more engaging and immersive experiences for our visitors – as an industry, we are constantly evolving.

What is interesting and will be something we will see a lot more of this year, is how we are actually developing ourselves.
