Calling all trail blazer event planners working within an agency, we'll be delivering a bespoke experience just for you. This is an event not to be missed. We're taking you on an experience to the cultural city of Glasgow like no other and this promises to be C&IT's biggest event to date. 

Why you should be there...

  • Why spend countless hours out of your busy schedule to travel to vendors and suppliers when you can meet and make new potential business relationships in one central hub. Our forums offer you the opportunity to meet only the top suppliers from their country and allows you to do the research to benchmark current suppliers, develop new offerings and attract and retain your clients through fresh new event opportunities only possible by the connections you make at the forum. 

  • Benchmark against like-minded professionals, hear what others are developing and give yourself a platform to build your company’s brand image in front of the whole MICE audience as well as your own. 

  • With our 30+ years of experience and our uniquely joined-up global audience, our Forum content will help you make the best decisions for yourself, your clients and your business. 

 …C&IT Festival of Forums is for you.
