Supplier participation

Interested in attending?

Running for the last 9 years, the Agency Challenge is part of Northstar Meetings Group’s Challenge Event Series for agency and corporate event buyers. It is a modern business forum that brings venues, destinations and event suppliers together with event management agencies in a fun, interactive and informative way, using gamification.

The Agency Challenge is taking place on 19-20 July 2022.

What’s included?
• You will be allocated to a team where you can network with your peers and agency event planners and compete for the £1000 team cash prize!
• You can undertake a dynamic 10-minute presentation directly and live to our audience of UK based event agency planners looking to place national and international event business
• You can design three quiz questions to ensure your USPs are remembered – these will be asked to buyers at the end of your presentation and count towards the final team scores
• You can undertake team challenges to build relationships with the agency buyers
• You can host up to 15 1-2-1 appointment sessions with agency buyers who have chosen you for a more detailed meeting
