HotSWLEP Annual Conference - Event organisation 


To provide event management services for the LEP’s Annual Conference and AGM, for 350 attendees from the public and private sectors, government officials and key stakeholders. The conference is an opportunity for the LEP to illustrate their efforts in increasing productivity in the area, raising their profile and providing a platform for companies to network. 


With a dedicated project team, we worked closely with the LEP team on all aspects of the event. From technical support, to printed materials, catering needs to delegate badges, this was a large-scale event that required constant communication and sense checks to ensure its smooth running.

We dedicated 6 members of staff on the day in order to manage the catering, presentations, speeches, technology  and photography. Astley Media also provided social media support for the event, ensuring guests engaged online as well as in person.

We were excited to use an innovative live voting system to gather thoughts from attendees.



The day was a great success, receiving excellent feedback from both guests and the client management team. With many aspects to juggle, we were proud to achieve a hassle-free day for the LEP. 


The live voting system engaged the audience really well, and overall the event was enjoyed by all, and provided a platform for networking as well as showcasing the organisation’s achievements.


Laura was a super project manager for our large event - she was professional, flexible, organised, personable and quickly understood the needs of our event.  The staff at Astley Media were superb on the day and together we all worked well as one larger team.  Thank you again!
