MEI’s flagship Major Events Summit has been re-imagined as a virtual event. This is during the week of 6th-12th July

AGF are very happy to be supporters of the event which brings together the heavyweights and shapers of the major international sporting and events industry. This is an important time for cross industry collaboration.

The event will deliver insightful, opportunity related content from major event CEO’sCOO’s, Operations Directors, Procurement Staff and other Rights Holders. They will share best practice and provide suppliers with an understanding of future business development opportunities.

Whilst the events industry is being hugely impacted by COVID19, we know that the live events eco-system will bounce back bigger and stronger than ever before. This Summit will present you with insight into future supplier/consultant opportunities at festival, sporting and cultural events in 2021 and beyond.

For the 2020 Summit, we will be providing you with as many of the benefits of our past face-to-face events as we can, where their unique characteristics have resulted in wide-spread acclaim. Live-streamed briefings and pre-recorded additional content will be available after the main 2 live-streamed content days (7th-8th July).

Past Summits have seen people travel from almost every part of the globe to form new relationshipsshare best practice and opportunities, all designed to inform future plans. The core purpose of the Major Events Summit is to help sports organisations and rights holders achieve their goals and objectives.

Don’t miss the opportunity to…

  • Grow your network – Meet (through virtual introduction) key event decision-makers: understand how they operate, tender, procure and when they are going to do so. We can guarantee wide representation across the events industry.
  • Flexibility – Choose the best time to suit your personal agenda to access the content. Presentations will be live-streamed, but also available for an extra 4 days after the stream. Whether you’re busy on the day or you live in a different time zone, you’ll have the ability to “catch-up”. In addition to the Live-streamed content, there will be a library of pre-recorded content from event organisers who could not appear live.
  • Time & Cost efficiency – With no flight and hotel costs, never has there been a more effective alternative way to help you achieve your objectives.
