Event organisers from a range of high-profile companies, including Barclays, Facebook, Samsung, RIBA and Morgan Stanley, have signed up to this year’s Blitz Connection, the annual showcase from AV and event production company Blitz, a GES company.
The showcase takes place on 7 May at The Brewery in the City of London.
The agenda has been designed to give organisers and marketers the chance to see the latest developments from Blitz and to take part in educational and inspirational sessions.
Presenter Helen Fospero will be moderating the day, and fashion industry icon Caryn Franklin, MBE, will give the keynote speech.
The agenda will include a panel talk about interactive technology and how it is transforming events and another on the theme of ‘Telling Your Brand Story’.
Veteran event producer, speaker and author Will Glendinning also deliver a session and, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Blitz, there will be drinks and canapes at the end of the event.
Blitz has also announced the promotion of Jason Sorabji to the newly created role of Group Production Director. As part of the senior management team, he will report directly into Blitz MD, Mike Phillipson.
Jason has been with Blitz for over three years and was previously Group Account Director at ExCeL London, where Blitz is the official in-house AV supplier.
New hire Paul Stuart will take over Jason’s position at ExCeL London. He joins from White Light where he oversaw the AV technical delivery for customers such as The Science Museum & Wembley Stadium.
