Conventa’s baby: Crossover conference in August

At every Conventa, days are intense, full of new faces, meetings, new friends, new business opportunities. During the years of Conventa’s development we realized that it is really hard to create a quality educational programme that would bring a real value to you, our participants. We’ve been trying for a while and we had to admit – there is no real time for it. This is how we got the idea – why wouldn’t our lovely community meet twice a year?

Event managers: 1st day of Crossover is for you

First day of Conventa Crossover is all about live experiences and events. Here are some of the event management treats and highlights in Conventa Crossover programme:

  • Anne Roelandt, Luc Petit CREATION is designing tailor-made shows and events all over the world. She will tell us how to bring together professionals, artists and non-professionals in order to create a harmonious event,
  • Kevin Jackson was voted as the most influential person in UK event industry.
