Best New Conference up to 400 delegates
CAMPDEN WEALTH – SAUDI ARABIAN FAMILY ENTERPRISE CONFERENCE (SAFE) 2020
Recognising the sweeping transformative changes taking place in KSA in lieu of Vision 2030 and lack of global participation in the local market, Campden Wealth set out to launch our first event to take place in KSA; The Saudi Arabian Family Enterprise Initiative (“SAFE 2020”). Bringing together the most prominent families and wealth holders in the heart of the biggest economy in the Middle East, this endeavour would:
• Cement Campden as the leading player in the region.
• Engage more of the Saudi wealth community.
• Better address the key macro issues in KSA which have a ripple effect throughout the region and indeed globally.
Campden Wealth worked with leading government divisions, corporations and organisations to ensure complete immersion and attendee experience.
Alongside industry leading content, attendees had access to the PGA Saudi International Golf Open and a tour to Al Ula, the world heritage site not yet open to tourists.
The event overachieved on every facet:
• Number of attendees: +27% over target
• Sponsorship: +39.5% over target
• Costs: +135% under budget
• Profit: +70% over target
• 96% approval rating from attendees
COGMENTUM EVENTS – FUTURENET WORLD
FutureNet World is an exciting new telecoms industry event that was launched in London, 25-26 March 2019. The key to success was to create an event with a clear point of difference to the many other events in a congested market. We spotted that there were a number of trends and factors that were colliding to create a perfect storm, and the industry had reached a tipping point which FutureNet World tackled head on. Centred on the theme ‘Network Automation and AI’, we created the industry’s first event focused exclusively on this important topic. With the support of a highly engaged advisory board of industry influencers, and the endorsement and support of key industry organisations, FutureNet World attracted a global audience of senior executives from the CIO and the CTO office of major telcos. Bellwether sponsors included Huawei, Ciena, Nokia, HPE, Netcracker and B-Yond and feedback can be summarised by the words of one of our partners: “FutureNet World is a very relevant event because it is different from the majority of events in this industry, it was a pleasure to participate in your event. I must say it was a fresh breeze in the crowded space of telecom events.”
DENNIS PUBLISHING – MONEY WEEK WEALTH SUMMIT
The launch of the first Money Week Wealth Summit by the Dennis Marketing & Events Team not only brought together the magazine’s core audience, but also exceeded all targets.
Event attendance was 41% above target.
Profit for the event was 93% up on the budgeted figure
Feedback from sponsors and guests were so positive that we are expanding to 2 events in 2020 and broadening the topic ranges, with one exploring the very technical side to investing and another more general event

EG – FUTURE FEMALE LEADERS
A lack of visible women in real estate is not breaking news and the industry is acutely aware of its
need to re-balance, to seek a wider, more diverse range of views and opinions, and to hear different voices. Which is why EG launched its Future Female Leaders programme, an industry-wide collaboration to address this need.
These 12 women readily admitted that at their first training session they were terrified standing up in front of each other to talk about themselves for two minutes. Then they stood up in front of hundreds of people in a packed auditorium and delivered 10-minute speeches with no notes. No cards with prompts on. No PowerPoint presentation with presenter notes on.
They stood up, just them with bright lights shining in their faces, and delivered 12 of the most powerful, funny, educational, important and heartfelt speeches to a massive crowd. And they all nailed it. It was a truly exceptional event.
Through the unique programme, future female leaders from across the built environment have learnt new skills in communication and presentation, helping them become engaging, powerful speakers.
GOVERNMENT EVENTS – COMBATTING GANGS, VIOLENCE AND WEAPON CRIME
Government Events is one of the UK’s fastest growing events companies, specialising in delivering information-driven public sector conferences and events at the forefront of Government policy. Their aim is to help attendees fulfil career goals in the public sector, through CPD.
The Combating Gangs, Violence and Weapon Crime Conference originated as the team identified from current affairs, news articles and government policy that gang and weapon crime is an increasingly prevalent and complex issue for the public sector to address.
This event smashed all targets exceeding the delegate target number of 60 by over 300%. Feedback for our on the day customer service at the conference, received 100% Excellent and Good responses.
Since the initial conference in December 2018, it has developed into a country-wide series.
GOVNET COMMUNICATIONS – GOVTECH 2019
The GovTech Conference, which took place on the 2nd October 2019, was among the first in its field to prepare the public sector for the next wave of emerging technology. Creating a space to define a new generation of government technology, GovTech brought together tech trailblazers and government officials to bridge the gap between policy and future-tech. We asked how the government can transform the relationship between citizen and state through harnessing 6 core technologies; 5G; AI; IoT and Big Data; Blockchain; Geospatial and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
The event provided a space that encouraged collaboration across the public and private sector. It showcased in-depth case studies from both local and central government that demonstrated the use of tech like AI and RPA, as well as organisational culture shift. It displayed a new generation of government technology and will continue to do so with the wider uptake of emerging tech across the public sector.
RISK.NET – RISK LIVE
Risk Live was designed as a pioneering festival of ideas, bringing together revolutionary thinkers from across the entire capital markets ecosystem. The event was developed very closely with Risk.net’s editorial and marketing services teams and has since become a leading product of the Risk Events portfolio. Speakers were genuine pioneers in their field, and shared exclusive research with our audience in addition to cutting edge insight from the editorial desk’s suggested topics, the global advisory board of leading experts were instrumental in researching and developing the agenda. To create a ‘festival of risk’ rather than another ‘old-school conference’ and make the event experience fun, dynamic and engaging, we introduced moved topics between stages and content zones, so throughout the day delegates were moving between rooms and always had the choice of at least three different sessions to join. For a launch event, the team set a very ambitious sponsorship revenue target which was exceeded by more than 33%. A runaway success.
