The day kicked off with a talk on the various merits of having celebrity chefs attached to an event.
Later in the day, guests were treated to further panel discussions on procuring staff for events taking place in 2012, dealing with strikes and how to chose the right presenter for events.
In between, corporates and agencies liaised with exhibitors in bespoke, one-to-one meetings.
By Word of Mouth provided catering, which at lunch included tuna and particularly popular lobster and crayfish pots.
Europa provided furniture for the event, Crystal Interactive supplied voting equipment for the talks, and Wise Productions supplied the lighting, sound and the impressive stage on which Young Guns showcased acts including beatboxer Testament and collective Soul Symphony.
Party for the Podium brought along Olympic rowers Zac Purchase and Steve Rowbotham, giving guests the opportunity to have their picture taken with the Beijing 2008 gold and bronze medalists.
