The Event and Visual Communication Association (EVCOM) has launched a new initiative focusing on business development skills for the industry.

The one-day event will take place on 9 September at CentrEd, ExCeL London and will feature a range of practical training sessions designed to give attendees simple professional development tools.

The day will focus on four key topics:

  • Procurement – This session will focus on what procurement departments are looking for and how to understand their priorities.
  • The proposal process – This session will cover writing proposals from initial contact to winning proposal.
  • Presentation techniques – This session will help attendees gain confidence and skills in pitching
  • Contracts and brand protection – This session will deal with contracts, copyright and the law.

Rob Bentley, senior development underwriter for sponsors Hiscox Event Insurance said: “Hiscox Event Assured is delighted to support the EVCOM Academy Day. We are looking forward to being involved in an event which will form an essential part of the personal development of those working in the events and visual communication industries.”
