AEO Conference 2022 returns to Brighton UK

Hilton Brighton

The Association of Event Organisers (AEO) has announced the return of the AEO Conference, taking place from 8-9 September at Hilton Brighton Metropole, England UK.

The event attracts around 250 senior industry professionals from the UK and abroad, including organisers, venues and suppliers.

The conference will explore topics such as talent shortages, the cost of living crisis impacting businesses and the futureproofing of business models. Other topics to feature on the programme include building communities and work culture.

The conference will be chaired by Caitlin Read, director of Arc. This year’s theme is centred around ‘thinking differently’.

Chris Skeith OBE, chief executive of the AEO said: “It’s amazing to be heading back to Brighton after the challenging years we’ve faced as an industry. A relaxed setting by the sea, to come together, share ideas and have some fun. We’ve worked closely with the event working group and conference chair, to ensure that this programme will deliver unmissable content, well worth the journey. We look forward to welcoming you to the Hilton Brighton Metropole in September.”

The headline sponsor of this year is GES.

Jason Stead, executive vice president of GES EMEA says: “The conference is a great opportunity for the industry to come together, to share ideas and discuss how we can collectively grow as a sector. The theme this year is an important one, and we are very much looking forward to being a part of that conversation.”
