Why are we holding this event?

The IPM is a body that is built for the industry, by the industry. Your feedback on the need to network without significant financial pressure has led us to create an event that is affordable for you and brings you the essential ingredients you need: insights, knowledge the and chance to meet.

Who should attend? 

Anyone in your organisation who is interested in knowledge gathering and networking; planners, account handlers, business development as well as the heads of businesses.

Is there any preparation needed? 

The morning session is a knowledge feed and the session in the afternoon is for you to make the most of having other IPM Members in the same place. We recommend that you use the afternoon to hold any meetings with other attendees, get together for that long overdue introduction or simply take the chance to meet like minded industry people like you.

We can help you connect with others who are attending should both parties want to meet.

Is there a theme for the event? 

We'll be concentrating on thought leadership around effectiveness, innovation in the industry, adaptation in the time of Brexit, critical issues such as GDPR.​

Who is coming?
