July 2010 Revolution’s Event Management Service more popular than ever…
With marketing departments under increasing pressure it seems that the ‘outsourced’ events option is more attractive than ever to both commercial and public sector organisations alike. A number of new and existing clients have now appointed us to organise their entire events programme including dealing with external contractors, internal stand staff and the event organisers directly – all for a fixed monthly fee. The payback for clients is clear. More time to focus on the key strategic aspects of their business, safe in the knowledge that the events programme is being expertly managed for the maximum return-on-investment.
We are delighted to announce a change of venue for the forthcoming Green IT Expo event on 9th November. Having been held at The Barbican Centre for the last two years, we have decided to re locate to the QE11, a more formal conference centre, which we feel better reflects this maturing event.
Green IT Expo will now offer a single days’ rich seminar programme, with strategic presentations from thought leaders, practical advice and the latest innovations from industry experts such as Forrester, Frost & Sullivan, Carbon Trust, the British Computer Society, Microsoft and VMware.
The 12th ISSE conference will be hosted by the Federal Ministry of the Interior in Berlin in October, a very apt city for this year's conference as on the 1st November 2010 German ID cards will be issued in the ID-1 format. This has led to the information security and identity management topics being highly debated not only on a German level, but pan European, and ISSE will provide a neutral environment for all ongoing discussions surrounding the industry as a whole.
The UK’s most comprehensive business forum for eProcurement, eSourcing and Supply Chain Technologies returns to Central London in September to a new venue, Novotel, St Pancras! Find out more at www.eworld-purchashing.com
Revolution’s newest event launched successfully in June, when hundreds of IT decision-makers visited the NEC Pavilion during the qualifying stage of the 2010 World Cup. The innovative IT Decisions event is designed as an antidote to the proliferation of small single-focus events, providing a one-stop-shop for senior strategists to catch up with all the latest trends and new developments within a single time-effective day. To much excitement, the England vs Slovenia match was shown on our big screen on the afternoon of Day One –before England crashed out in the very next round!
The 18th annual AIIM Roadshow had great feedback this year from both exhibitors and delegates:
‘The preparation, support and delivery of the whole event ran smoothly due to a strong organisation team. This allowed us to get the best possible outcome in terms of launching our new scanner and lead generation. There was a good spread of attendees across the four shows, both from the trade and end users. Being our first AIIM we were unsure of the outcome, but we can positively say that it was a worthwhile venture and we’ll be looking at booking again for next year!’ Genus IT
'Both our sales and marketing teams were delighted with the quality of the delegates attending this year’s AIIM Roadshow. The format of the event combined with the multiple locations have made for a very engaging and worthwhile event. Revolution Events have been very successful in getting the right people to the Roadshow – well done and many thanks!' Hewlett-Packard
A successful E-Identity Management Conference 2010, London
In 2010 we received an over-whelming delegate attendance from a true pan European background at this unique EEMA / OASIS event. The conference took place in London and comprised thought-provoking keynotes, panel discussion, roundtable sessions and focused workshops on the key challenges and strategies for effectively managing Government, employee, citizen and private identities.
IT Decisions 2010 is an exciting new forum for busy IT executives, designed as an antidote to the myriad of single-focus niche events that currently clog up the IT calendar.
By changing its themes each year and focusing on the practicalities of making successful investment decisions, this single time-effective event offers fresh insights into the major IT trends for the next 1-2 years, delivering practical advice and real-life examples of the most important emerging technologies.
