Chris will cover these points AND answer your questions over a full buffet breakfast:

- How to use events for acquisition - what kinds of planning do you need in place to attempt conversion of ticket-buyers into potential "regular" annual supporters of your charity?

- Transitioning – Event attendees won’t necessarily want to continue attending a particular event after a number of years. How do you deal with that?

- Steps and ideas for reviving a tired or financially flat event.

- Using changing technology to assist with fundraising.
