ACE focuses on providing a platform for creating opportunities, meeting valuable contacts and sharing knowledge. In early 2016 we introduced our Network & Learn series that offers both Members and Non-members the chance to network with other event professionals, exchange views and discuss challenges as well as joining a development session.


Our next Network & Learn Session

GDPR – Have you got it right so far?

22nd March 2018 (Bristol- Venue TBC)

As we leave March 2018 the GDPR deadline will be just two months away. This session, delivered by Capital Law, will focus on the practicalities and challenges of implementing GDPR and will offer you an informative review point to ensure you are on the right track.    The interactive session will help you answer a number of questions:

  • Have you interpreted the legislation and requirements correctly?
  • Is what you have implemented so far correct and is it enough?
  • What lessons have been learnt so far and are there any legislation updates?
  • How do you manage third party data, buy-in databases and personal data collected at trade shows?

There will be a Q&A session which will allow you to ask GDPR questions relevant to your company as well as give you the opportunity to network with others who are managing GDPR within the event sector and of course have a coffee on ACE!
