This involved recruiting senior industry keynote speakers for the morning conference, and companies to present from the Share Fair booths in the late morning and afternoon. Flyers were designed and distributed and delegates registered (over 200 for each event). Having secured a suitable venue, all related arrangements, catering, accommodation, etc were made with the hotel. A sub-contractor was appointed to design the layout of the booths, erect them and provide audio visual equipment for the event. Feedback forms were designed and distributed, and a feedback report submitted.
