ABOUT THE AEO CENTENARY PARTY AND AWARDS

This year marks 100 years of AEO's service to the events industry! We think that's cause for celebration and there's no one we'd rather celebrate with than... YOU!

The AEO Centenary Party (& Awards), hosted by the NEC Group at the Vox on the 10th of December, will welcome event professionals from across the industry, promising 20s themed fun, networking, a celebrity host and awards.

A RICH HISTORY

Over the years, the mission of AEO has transitioned and developed, to align with current issues.

A century on and the original collaborative ambitions are not too dissimilar from the AEO’s current objectives, albeit on a much wider and ambitious scale. It is run by its members for the benefit of its members through an elected council, specialist working groups and a fulltime secretariat.

Our working groups have seen a transformation, offering more diversity than ever. We’ve gained recognition from government bodies like never before. Collaboration across our great industry is something we and every one of you should be proud of.

Founded in 1921, registered with Companies House in June 1982 and headquartered now in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, the AEO comprises 87 national and international members.
