Around 100 managing directors and chief executives from the industry’s leading companies are expected to attend the event at the Midlands-based venue.
They will meet in interactive sessions to discuss a wide range of issues including disaster planning, changes in the venue landscape, the international marketplace, and ISOs and standards, as well as having a look at future trends and associated risks.
ESSA director Chris Skeith said: "This is our flagship event and has been created to educate and inform our members, from large organisations to SMEs.
"It helps our members to operate more efficiently today and gives them information that will help them plan for the future. It also provides important time to forge and foster relationships. And above all, it does it in style with entertainment thrown in."
The event was last held at the Ricoh Arena in 2009 and is coming back for 2012.
Toyota Material Handling will return as the headline sponsor for the event, with a keynote presentation providing a practical insight into ‘The Toyota Way’.
Laurie Dalrymple, venue director at the Ricoh Arena added: "This will be a day of hearing from experts within the sector on a whole host of relevant topics."
"We also wanted to inject something a little different and decided to make use of the casino for the evening meal."
