CEDA reports the number of confirmed delegates attending the 2015 Conference Business Day has jumped nearly 20% from 2014, and the number of those who will attend the Thursday and Friday dinners is up by more than 10%.
Conference organiser McCullough Moore has booked extra rooms at the conference venue the Crowne Plaza, Heythrop Park, for the 24 and 25 April to cope with the additional demand.
Commenting on the upsurge in delegates and those who want to be involved in the 2015 CEDA Conference, Adam Mason, director general, said: “We are delighted with how bookings stand and with 2 weeks still to go I would urge anyone who is yet to register to do so sooner rather than later so that we can guarantee a room.
“The 2 day programme is packed full of networking opportunities, business meetings, seminars and speakers and will of course culminate in the Gala Dinner and Grand Prix Awards, the entries for which have been outstanding. We have members, partners, consultants, media and representatives from end-user associations all attending. It is a true pan-industry event.”
The conference line-up includes a panel of industry thought leaders; Peter Martin (Peach Reports), Nathalie Gibbs (Black Sheep design agency), Paul Goodale (Epicurean Holdings), Allister Richards (Gather & Gather) and keynote speakers; Geoff Ramm, Tim FitzHigham FRSA FRGS and BBC News’ Click Show presenter LJ Rich.
CEDA has also added an additional attraction for members on Thursday 23 April with a BIM workshop that will start at 9.30am.
