Event organisers from a wide range of high-profile companies have signed up to this year’s Blitz Connection, the annual showcase from industry leading AV and event production company Blitz, a GES company.

Attendees from companies including Barclays, Facebook, Samsung, RIBA and Morgan Stanley are set to join the event, which takes place on 7th May at The Brewery in London.

The agenda has been designed to give event organisers and marketers the chance to see the latest developments from Blitz and take part in educational and inspirational sessions with top speakers. Blitz has already announced journalist and presenter Helen Fospero will be moderating the day, and fashion industry icon Caryn Franklin MBE will give the keynote speech.

The full agenda for the day has now been confirmed and the following events are set to be included on the bill:

  • Adam Parry, editor of Event Industry News and co-founder of Event Tech Live will moderate a panel talk about interactive technology and how it is transforming events. The panel is made up John Steele, technical director for Blitz, Richard Padun, director for Arcstream and Mike Piddock, CEO of Glisser.
  • Caryn Franklin MBE will be on hand to moderate a panel titled ‘Creative Connections: Telling Your Brand Story’ and speakers include Mark Watson, creative director, Blitz, and Rosie Ham, course director from the Event Academy.
  • Veteran event producer, speaker and author Will Glendinning will be distilling 20 years of experience delivering some of the world’s most high-profile events into an unmissable session that will inspire and inform in equal measure.
