What is the Agency Challenge about?
The Agency Challenge is part of the Northstar Meetings Group Challenge Event Series for agency, corporate and association event buyers. Running for 8 years the challenge event format is proven to create an environment where imagination inspires business and builds partnerships between buyers and event industry suppliers.

The Agency Challenge is a modern business forum that brings together event management agencies with venues, destinations and specialist suppliers.

It is an opportunity for agencies to be inspired by a tantalising array of presentations in an energetic, informative and memorable way. It is the not-to-be missed agency event of the year.
