Features of the show

Impact Stage

A showcase of the latest, best-in-class solutions, as chosen by your peers. Hear about the exciting work suppliers are doing across sustainability, D&I, marketing, experiences and more.

Main Stage

In the landscape of inflation, lack of resource, geopolitics, supply chain issues, and more, the joy of curating experiences is being squeezed out of event planners. Re-ignite your passion for experiences through inspiration and debate, as leaders tackle key challenges.

Workplace Revolution 

Join speakers from the main stage to further dissect topics and make meaningful connections with your peers through shared experiences and problem solving.


Burnout is the new epidemic. Whilst stress isn't a new topic for event planners, we're now working with a backdrop of new challenges. Take time out from your busy diary to ReFuel through a programme of mindfulness and self-care.
