The Accelerator Labs

Innovative, collaborative workshops that deliver new and winning formulas for your event marketing. Join a fresh marketing movement and an elite tribe of event professionals who are daring to do things differently.

It's event marketing training, but not as you know it...

Discover a dramatically different way to learn and develop new strategies.

We’ve been delivering in-house event marketing training for some time and kept getting asked for publicly available courses. We knew we’d got something unique to add to what’s already available, with a truly cutting edge view on event marketing delivered in an honest, practical, no nonsense way. 

The workshops are designed to reflect the new face of event marketing. Attendees will be joining a fresh marketing movement, an elite tribe of event professionals who are doing things in a different, more effective way, breaking with tradition and reaping the rewards. We call them "Accelerator Labs." You can hold your place for 2017 dates or we can even work with you and your team to organise the ideal place and time.
