Best Event attended?
A great business event for me is one at which I meet clients, whilst at the same time learn and encounter challenging and disruptive thinking. With all of this in mind, the best events for me are the annual events organised by the Leading Centres of Europe where international association congress decision makers meet with some of Europe’s top conference venues. These are highly targeted events where extraordinary business partnerships are formed which always result in great events taking place at the SECC.
