Which Events are EventProfs most excited for in 2018?

2018 is jam-packed with exciting industry events. We asked eventprofs which events they're most looking forward to this year so you can prioritise your busy calendar and perhaps discover something new.

Looking forward to speaking at @IntlConfex and can't wait for @EventLAB_HQ - four new events and lots of great discussion coming up!

Our pride and joy at Hire Space. EventLAB 2017 brought together events industry thought leaders for two days of discussions, talks and networking.

Where do I start! @IntlConfex, @EventLAB_HQ 2018 (of course), @eventwell18, and not forgetting @ewlclubuk and, as well as various #ewlpopup events we’ll be holding throughout the year... lots going on #eventprofs

In the UK stress accounts for 45% of lost work days, and over 1.3 million people have suffered from workplace stress. As a result, it’s more important than ever that event professionals take active steps towards their wellbeing. Eventwell this September aims to educate and advocate for the well-being of event professionals.

Feel like it’s only right that I mention @CITmagazine’s Corporate Forum, Agency Forum and Association Forum... plus the brand new C&IT360 in Portugal!

C&IT Forums

The C&IT Agency, Corporate and Association forums bring together senior event profs for 3 days of discussion and networking.

Definitely looking forward to @squaremealvande - always a favourite of ours @BoulevardEvents.

I also can’t wait to see the final edit of our wellbeing discussion back at the beginning of December @HireSpace HQ 🙌🏻

Citizen Event

This networking club for events professionals hosts events at the end of every month. There are not speakers, panels or presentations, just coffee, tea and event professionals who want to share ideas.

So many! @BNCEventShow has to be one of our favourite industry events. We also love @CitizenEvent, @eventtechlive and @ewlclublondon.

Bi-annual networking exhibitions for top event planners to meet UK and international event suppliers in the heart of the City of London. Taking place in February and July.

Event Tech Live

Taking place in November this is the only events show dedicated entirely to event technology. This is a great place to discover new innovations in the industry.

I’m looking forward to @The_HBAA Annual Dinner on 12 Jan, @IntlConfex in March, @themiceblog’s live events and of course @FutureIn15 Show events
