Art of recruitment, attendee psychology, strategy streamlining and sponsorship pitch rule the knowledge sessions

#ANNEX18, The Annual Exchange – the first open space and (un)conference for UK event professionals – is a participant oriented event where the attendees decide on the agenda, discussion topics and workshops.

The informal and flexible program of #ANNEX18 has allowed attendees to suggest topics of their own interest over the last 6 months, and ultimately choose sessions they wish to attend accordingly on the day of the event itself.

We are delighted to announce that the knowledge sessions as chosen by this year’s attendees are almost in place with only two sessions slots available now for requests.
