What fellow Event Professionals say about The Special Event:
"Attending The Special Event show armed me with the knowledge and the partners to execute my local events in a much more positive way. My clients love all of the new and innovative ideas that I bring back from each show. I'm grateful that my colleague introduced me to a place where I can actually shop for new products and services!"
"I have been going to the special event conference for 18 years and always come back to work inspired by our industry. Each year I may be inspired in different ways. Some years it is with the sessions, other years the trade show floor with new vendors. Each host city puts their spin on the opening parties and gala party. I meet lots of great people and have a greater appreciation for this industry."
"This is a show that anyone in the event industry should attend. If you want to be inspired, gather new and interesting information and most of all grow as an event provider, this is "must see" experience."
