Royal Parks Foundation development and events manager Sally Barney and Limelight Sports project manager James Hogben will join Great North Run boss David Newton in talking delegates through the challenges of producing some of the UK's biggest mass participation sports events.

The event, which takes in all the sights of London, won the title of Best Outdoor Event at this year’s Event Awards.

Barney and Hogben complete the line up of speakers for The Guide Live, which already includes Olympic Park Legacy Company director of events and programming Clive Little, NFL marketing director Mark Killingley and Kommando Group founding director Mark Evans.

The Guide Live offers event venues and suppliers the opportunity to hold one-to-one meetings with buyers from event agencies and corporate brands.

Delegates and suppliers at the event will enjoy hospitality from caterer Moving Venue, lighting and design by White Light, furniture from Thorns, and branded chocolate treats from It’s All About The Wrapper.

Previous versions of the Guide Live, including the Guide Live Out of London, have seen delegates from brands including Lloyds, Santander, O2 and ITV.

To listen to this session you will need to become a delegate. To qualify as a delegate you need to be a buyer for an event agency or for a brand in control of a budget of more than £250,000 a year to spend on events. To apply for a delegate place click here.
