The BCA Annual Conference and Exhibition Showcase at Senate House, London on 17 May 2012 has been hailed an outstanding success by organisers, exhibitors and delegates.
Sponsored by essensys, the new 1 day format was well received by all that attended and added to the occasion with a good pace between networking, exhibition zone and an excellent line-up of speakers covering many key issues and topics affecting the sector.
The keynote address was delivered by The Rt Hon the Lord Young of Graffham, adviser to the Prime Minister for enterprise. He gave a superb introduction to the event, discussing the future and how we and the government can encourage business growth and entrepreneurship.
Presenters and delegates spoke appreciatively of the opportunity to share their ideas with BCA members and debate issues with a great range of businesses including Brokers, Operators, Serviced Office, Workspace and trade suppliers to the industry.
The event was a success with Social Media too, with 100’s of tweets using the hashtag #bcaconf2012 which really helped to tell the story of the day.
We asked many of our delegates, presenters and exhibitors just why they are a BCA member?
David Kinnaird from Avanta Managed Offices, who gave a superb presentation on the day with Chief Executive Alan Pepper told us why membership with the BCA is important to Avanta:
The event finished with a celebratory dinner with after Dinner Speaker Alexis Conran, star of ‘The Real Hustle’. A big thank you to everbody that attended this year, your contribution is vital to the success of the sector, and we appreciate your continued support.
