AVNTUS is a collective of event professionals with experience across a variety of industries: publishing, technology, education, innovation, marketing, luxury retail, aviation, corporate governance law and politics. We specialise in curating first-class conference content, creating outstanding guest experiences, commercialising event offerings and solving logistical headaches. Seeking a competitive market edge for your event portfolio? In need of an urgent pair of hands to steer the ship? Struggling to make your events as commercially sound as they should be? Need help building the right team to run the show? avntus is here to help. We work with companies to ensure that events run on time and on budget, and that delegate confidence and loyalty keeps on growing.
CONTENT IS KING
In corporate conferencing, reputations live or die by the dynamism of speakers and the quality of what they have to say. We research and refine ideas, often working with in-house show producers, to craft the right blend of innovation, expertise and groundbreaking ideas, to ensure your conference remains head and shoulders above the competition.
SALES LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT
Events are often significantly undersold; not due to a poor product or lack of sales talent, but because sales teams can’t fully understand or communicate the unique selling points for sponsors. We run workshops to empower sales people with the tools they need to make customers realise the strength of the opportunities on offer.
EVENT STRATEGY EXPERTS
Most events hit a creative lull every two to three years, which can be damaging in a competitive market. Working alone or with your existing team, we can refresh event portfolio, by developing new ideas and meeting customers’ ever-changing needs. We will look at the existing offering and discreetly interview target delegates and sponsors to find out what changes need to be made. Through our network of specialists, we can also implement those changes for you, from branding and location to event themes and raising an event’s public profile.
HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Sometimes it helps to have a fresh pair of eyes on a project to tell you what you need to know. We won’t always tell you what you want to hear, but we will advise you frankly on the direction of an event or portfolio. The best starting point is the avntus AUDIT – a three year market analysis and financial projection of where you are headed. We will be able to make a list of recommendations to empower you to make the changes you need to ensure long term success.
PLUGGING THE GAP
There is never a good time for an event director to leave his or her post to take up a new position. If you have three events coming up in the time it will take to replace them, avntus can help to steer the ship. We will focus on meeting your company’s promises and protecting its reputation. We can also advise on the best type of candidate and role your team needs to continue to drive and grow your events activity.
