The day will also see an opening by Jo Austin, Director of Sales, Lime Venue Portfolio, who will reflect on the development of the unique and unusual sector over the last 10 years, and what the business is expecting from the industry in the future. Jason Allan Scott, entrepreneur, author and founder of ‘The Guest List’ podcast, will guide attendees through the conference as MC and interview Holly Tucker on her take on ‘Beyond’ and the future of creative business.

The conference concludes Lime Venue Portfolio’s 10th Anniversary celebrations and follows a series of charity initiatives, celebrations and events the brand has been sharing with its customers.
