Venuemasters has moved its Academic Venue Showcase (AVS) from May to October, saying the new date would be more convenient for attendees and exhibitors.

The showcase, which has run for more than 20 years, will now be held on Wednesday 11 October at Emirates Stadium in London.

"The events and exhibition calendar is busy from around February to June. Therefore, following last year’s show we asked visitors and exhibitors for feedback on changing the month to October, and their feedback was very positive," said marketing manager Natalie Williamson.

"Venuemasters is evolving to meet tomorrow’s events industry needs, and we’ll be announcing exciting new services soon. If you’re an event organiser, agency or PA, we can’t wait to meet you at AVS on the 11th October at the Emirates."

The Academic Venue Showcase is a one-day exhibition of meeting and conference facilities at academic institutes. Free to attend, the exhibition showcases value-for-money venues across the UK, as well as exclusive money-saving offers, networking opportunities, and high-profile keynote speakers.
