Advocate Louis Nel and Mandy Elliott, owner of events management company MMSI, have announced the launch of a brand new events industry conference that aims to address the numerous and serious risks involved in events management from the perspective of the events manager.

The Eventually™ Conference will address a host of important topics, such as risk identification, management and the CPA, greening your event, fraud, the pitfalls of audiovisual services, and social media trends, to name a few. Industry stalwart, Helen Brewer is just one of the key note speakers, an expert in her own right.

“With such an incredible collective wealth of knowledgeable together at one conference, we would be amiss not to provide for networking at every opportunity,” says Elliott.

“Louis and I are both strong advocates for networking. Through sharing our hard-earned advice and experience we allow for bigger, better functions at even higher standards, and ultimately that serves the entire industry.”

In keeping with this mantra, Eventually™ also offers industry-related services the opportunity to exhibit to this influential audience via branding opportunities and/or exhibition stands.

The Eventually™ conference is aimed at top-level events industry players, events industry-related business owners and senior corporate event planners.

The first Eventually™ conference will be held on 14 and 15 September at BON Hotel Riviera on Vaal luxury hotel resort accommodation on the Vaal River, located 45 minutes from Johannesburg.

Registration is now open.
