AEV welcomes Ungerboeck and Blitz support for 2019 conference

The Association of Event Venues (AEV) has announced that Ungerboeck will be the headline sponsor for its conference on July 4, 2019, at Manchester Central, and that Blitz, a GES company, will be joining as conference partner, providing the production, set and staging for the whole event.

Rachel Parker, AEV director (pictured right), welcomed the news. She commented: "I'm immensely grateful to Ungerboeck for its continued support as headline sponsor of the AEV Conference, and to Blitz for its support as conference partner. The growth in stature and size of the AEV conference has demonstrated a clear need for a relevant, engaging venue forum with vision. It is thanks to the industry, and Ungerboeck and Blitz in particular, that the AEV can meet this demand."

Manish Chandak, CEO of Ungerboeck Software (pictured left), explained why the company had returned as headline sponsor: "The content and focus of the 2018 conference provided an excellent platform to discuss the event industry landscape of tomorrow with many of the people who will be shaping it, and we were very keen to build on the experience by returning as headline sponsors for the third year."

Carol Gibbs, director of venues at Blitz, a GES company, said: "We have a superb production plan for this year's AEV conference and are delighted to be able to support this essential forum for the sector. The 2019 theme ‘New Horizons’ complements our pioneering spirit here at Blitz perfectly – not least as we are celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year."
