The team behind the Future High Street Summit has a developed a new one-day conference, enabling town teams, BIDs, councils and town centre managers to create, organise and hold events in their local areas.

The Community Engagement through Town Centre Events conference offers an opportunity for place-makers to learn from expert advice, share ideas for events and meet solution providers.

The conference will be held in the Nottingham Conference Centre on November 11th, 2015.

The outline agenda for the day has already been produced, addressing an array of town centre event topics across eight sessions, including event management, Christmas and other seasonal events, specialty markets, art and culture, supporting businesses, campaign events and social responsibility events.

“Feedback from Future High Street Summit delegates earlier this year proved that town centre stakeholders find case studies and implementable ideas most useful for their professional objectives,” commented Clare Rayner, founder of the new conference.

“With this in mind, we have created an exclusive conference, entirely dedicated to sharing ideas for town centre events and helping delegates to engage their local communities with fantastic activities.

“While this year’s Summit had lots of varying content across two days, the Community Engagement through Events conference is going to focus solely on those activities that help to bring a town together.

“Attendees will enjoy a whole day of case studies, practical advice and proven solutions that will allow them to leverage events within their areas.”

Registration for the Community Engagement through Events conference is now open, and early bookers can get the discounted ticket price of £129 on a first come, first served basis by entering promotional code BIRD on registration.
