Stands snapped up for Academic Venue Showcase
Within an hour of going on sale, 50% of the stands for the 2019 Academic Venue Showcase have been reserved, with the majority of the stands on offer expected to be sold out by the end of the year.
The 2019 showcase, hosted by Academic Venue Solutions (AVS) will be returning to the ILEC Conference Centre, London, on Tuesday 19 March, marking a change of venue and date for the ever popular exhibition. The showcase is being moved from the autumn to early spring, bringing the event in line with the conference and exhibition season.
These changes mark a shift in direction for AVS, as the consortium continues to welcome new members, expands its learning and development academy and promote the excellent benefits to event professionals of using academic venues.
Natalie Williamson, General Manager at Academic Venue Solutions, said: “The Academic Venue Showcase has been running for over twenty years, and exhibitors have once again shown that it’s a key event in their marketing calendar. Feedback from exhibitors and attendees, and our desire to raise our profile in 2019 and beyond, prompted us to go a for a date and venue change - the decision has been welcomed by members.”
Around forty exhibitors will be on hand including UK colleges, universities and professional establishments, plus a VIP meeting hub and event insights seminar programme.
Steve Crawford, Chair of the Board of Directors, commented: “This year has been all about change for the good for AVS - including our new strategy, our learning and development academy, many new members and now the showcase. We’re looking forward to 2019.”
Exhibitor pre-built packages are available for members and non-member venues which include: production of 3x printed graphic panels, branded counter, all set-up and break down, plus pre-event promotion. For further information please contact the AVS team on 0114 2453423.
