#EventProfs Summer Party: How to build an event community. Lessons learned from #eventprofs

On Thursday 28 August, London Event Professionals Network invites you to attend our special summer party at the Google Campus, Shoreditch. We will be enjoying summer drinks and networking, while discussing best practices of building event communities with a panel of event experts.

As event organisers we are more often talking about creating and nurturing communities around our events. What are the benefits of creating and sustaining a community? How do you measure your efforts and ROI? How do the communities evolve and change over time? How can technologies help you build a community and maintain the buzz throughout your event production cycle?

Let’s enjoy summer drinks together as a community of event professionals!



6:00 - Networking and drinks

7:00 - Panel discussion with experts and Q&A; about "How to build an event community. Lessons learned from #eventprofs" 

8:00 - Tech City style networking (beer, wine and pizza)!
