Event Management

Get inspired for your event with our bespoke event management 

- Would you like to hold an event?

You might be a college or a public body, wanting to hold an important conference. Or an awarding organisation or training provider, looking to target a further education audience. Or you might want to share some new findings and get maximum exposure.

- Do you lack expertise and resources?

Running an event is full of challenges – from attracting the right audience, to making the whole thing run smoothly and staying within budget. Now more than ever, you need to make every penny count.

Yet a well-designed, well-run event can give you a higher profile, a reputation as an expert, and stronger links with the FE sector. In other words, a healthy return on investment.

That’s where AoC Create comes in.
