VenueConnect 2020

Navigating Change Together

Because our industry always comes together, let's do it again at VenueConnect. IAVM IS its members, so plan now to join us as we celebrate your resilience and steadfastness in pushing through one of the most difficult times we have ever experienced in our industry. It's time to Navigate Change Together! Join us at VC20, the only industry conference that provides targeted education, and brings attendees together to create valuable professional connections, explore new and innovative ideas in the venue management industry, tour venues across all sectors, and learn from leaders in the field.

5/21/2020: With everyone's health and safety as our top priority, we will be transitioning VenueConnect 2020 to a virtual format. Known for providing quality networking and education, IAVM's virtual conference will continue to provide our industry the most timely and relevant education sessions, discussion groups, networking opportunities, and more. This year, it will be from the comfort and safety of your home or office.

The VC20 planning committee and staff are already working hard to generate up-to-date sessions. We plan to focus strongly on navigating the current changes in our industry with topics relating to reopening guidelines and/or considerations, what we have learned thus far in dealing with COVID-19, and more.


Registration will be open again in the near future.
