What better way to explore the world of events than through an event? From breakfast briefings to an annual awards ceremony, find out how you can get involved.

Connect Breakfast Briefings

Free to PPA members, Connect breakfast briefings are opportunities to learn about a very specific topic that’s relevant to the event industry. These briefings offer up speakers who have been in your shoes, to share their knowledge and experience in a case study format. With 9am starts and never lasting longer than 1.5 hours, our briefings are designed to be punchy, specific, and not keep you away from the office for too long.

Connect Labs

Ever wanted to hear about new technology on the market that improves event efficiency? Or perhaps you want to better understand how to utilize Linked In to create communities? Connect Labs tackle the technical and practical aspects of running an event. To submit your own idea for a Connect Lab topic, please contact us here.

Networking Roundtables

These half-day events are for the senior strategists who are responsible for implementing the business models of the future, where events form a significant part.

Connect Conference

Events professionals come together to learn how to overcome the challenges that will drive their events forward and make them more profitable, innovative and enjoyable. Dedicated to a full day, this is the best chance to meet your peers and get some great new ideas! For an overview of the 2015 event click here.

Connect Awards

This is our way of recognising and rewarding the individuals and teams that work so hard to make events happen. Whether it’s the challenge of selling a sponsorship package, the long hours slaving away on the logistics or the barriers you come up against when trying to develop your event brand, we want to pat you on the back.
