“The People Development Summit continues to be an important component of Impact's marketing strategy. Summit events do a great job of bringing the right people to the table and we have made some great friends and formed positive professional relationships with some brilliant people as a result.”
“This is an excellent event that I would highly recommend to any potential supplier to the target market. A superbly designed and organised two days with high quality delegates with budget responsibility. An incredibly cost and time efficient way of reaching my target market!”
“Although a regular supplier at other similar events, this was my first experience of the People Development Summit. I was hugely impressed throughout. From the delegate/supplier selection process, the pre-event support, the on-site organisation through to incredibly focussed meetings with real decision makers, the Summit Events team showed that they really understood what suppliers wanted from the event and they delivered exactly that.”
We deliver on promise! We offer your business a guaranteed number of one to one meetings with a qualified and engaged audience of UK L&D buyers. Around 80% of the suppliers attend on an annual basis, a testament to the event’s success in generating ROI.
Business focus. Attendance at the Summit is by invitation only to a limited audience of around 80 L&D directors and 50 suppliers. We promote the event to the buyers as a time and cost effective way of vetting service providers and networking with their colleagues. The seminar programme is secondary to, but complements, the 1:1 meetings.
Shared experience. All participants stay in the same hotel for 2½ days. In addition to the one to one meetings, you will have time and opportunity to meet most of the other L&D Directors - unlike shorter, UK-based events, there is no rush! The location and hotel are always first class. Networking in such an environment leads to meaningful and memorable introductions.
Meet the right people. You will receive detailed profiles of attendees from which to pre-select your best prospects. Via our secure online portal, participants can also send private messages highlighting specific services and requirements. Personalised schedules are sent to all attendees to approve in advance of the event.
