The ESSA G50+ Conference, 22 November 2012 at the Ricoh Arena, reaches its fifth anniversary with the announcement that, for the second year in succession, Toyota Materials Handling will be the headline sponsor for the event.
The association's strategic members' forum and conference has delivered a mixture of content that has informed, advised and educated those in attendance over a wide range of subjects requested by the members themselves.
The event welcomes all ESSA members, and registration has begun. ESSA expects to open the doors to around a hundred people from across its membership, including managing directors and chief executives.
David Freeman of Mayridge will be introducing the presentation from Toyota Material Handling that will open the day with a practical introduction to the Toyota Way – be prepared to get involved – and then will hand on to David Wootton, MD of CME and ESSA board member who will put preparing for disaster into context.
Other sessions throughout the day will discuss the latest sales techniques to an ever changing customer base, how events business can succeed internationally, and dispel the myths surround ISOs, standards and managing risk in a sparky panel discussion. The closing session on the parallels between poker and business will put everyone in the mood for networking sessions, a three course dinner and the option of access to the casino!
ESSA director Chris Skeith said: "This is our flagship event, and we are delighted to welcome Toyota Material Handling back, and to return to the Ricoh arena. The key focus of the ESSA G50+ Conference is always community, education and standards with the event having a proven track record over the last 5 years of delivering on all three to each attendee and arming them with information, inspiration and new friends from within the ESSA community."
