In the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic in 2020, The Event Freelancer Summit was conceived.  The events industry had been decimated, and there were  thousands of freelancers out there who were looking for support, advice and information.

Steve Squires & Ajay Parekh of Connektd - Your Freelance Community, decided that an online summit would be an ideal way of leveraging their contacts and experience to bring those freelancers what they were looking for. 

The event took place on 22nd July 2020, with speakers including Simon Hughes, Chair of BVEP; Martin Hughes, Editorial Director at Mash Media; Adrian Bell, CEO of Action Impact and Michael Whyrley-Birch, CEO of TRO.  It was attended by 800 people from around the world, and was received as one of the best virtual events that many of the participants had attended

The Event Freelancer Summit is in the shortlist for an award at the Digital Event Awards on 18th March 2021, in the category of "Best Audience Engagement Model"

"Not just saying this, but this is the best content I have had on any webinar. If I had known this was coming, I could have saved hours on pointless webinars!"

Miriam Sigler, Ways & Means


I've always said that bringing people together in the same space at the same time is one of the most effective ways to create real behaviour change and experiences that we never forget.  Great job and thanks for inviting me!

Simon Hughes, Chair, BVEP


To provide opportunities for people to be educated, network and engage is on the top of everyone's agenda and the Event Freelancer Summit did just that and we feel very honoured to have been involved
