Many event planners are very keen to ensure that the outcomes of an event, go far beyond the timeframe of an event itself and are paying more and more attention to the long-term positive impact that an event has on the host area culturally, economically and physically. This broadly speaking is the concept of event legacy. In this session, we’ll focus on what event legacy means and how to create one.

This session is open to all association professionals. Join the discussion and share your views. 

For your best engagement, the event is held in an online video meeting style

Location, location, location – How this can affect an event’s legacy
Charlene Matthewman, Harris Associates

Choosing a location is the most important aspect of any event, especially when it comes to hosting international guests that mostly just want to visit London, or so you think!  Charlene will talk about thinking beyond your events programme and looking to make a lasting impression on your delegates and the host city that you choose to run your event from.  Charlene has been running The Society for Radiological Protection’s events for over seven years and is looking forward to SRP hosting the International Radiation Protection Association European Congress in 2026.


Leveraging Event Legacy to impact your members' industry
Laura Watt British Association of Cosmetic Nurses

Associations have a responsibility to represent their members effectively, respond to their needs and champion their best practice. Events offered by association are the perfect place to engage this. By planning a goal orientated event legacy plan for your event, not only can you offer networking and professional development, but you also have the opportunity to really apply meaningful change to your industry.

This presentation will cover examples of successful event legacy from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurse’s largest event, the Autumn Aesthetic Conference and other events the BACN hosts. This will outline why every association should ensure they employ event legacy to deliver long lasting meaning to their events.
