Join The Club

What Do We Do?

We are first and foremost a members' club, a professional association, for conference and event managers.

For over two decades now we have been helping our members improve their event processes and outcomes by helping them source great suppliers and engage with and learn from likeminded eventprofs. Through a series of popular online and face to face networking events they share information, tips, guidance, recommendations and experiences.

The BNC provides a complimentary recommendation sharing service for corporate event planners

We have been helping corporate event planners connect since 1997 and throughout the years we’ve built up a strong and loyal membership base helping them source successful suppliers.

Our aim is to create a long-lasting and valued eventprof (buyer) community and to provide opportunities for buyers and suppliers to build strong relationships.

We bring together a strong, well-resourced and educated community of event professionals both online and face-to-face at our trademark fun and friendly events.


Online: Have an issue about your forthcoming event that you need help with? Looking for a recommendation for a particular supplier? Want to do some benchmarking with industry peers? Looking for career advice or training ideas? Just send your query through and your question will go anonymously to over 1000 event professionals just like you. You will get a set of responses delivered to you -  and they are fantastic responses from people who have tried and tested experience to pass on from their own events.

Face to face: We run a series of engaging networking breakfasts, exciting BNC Shows, informative Forums, charity days plus fun parties and evening dos. Each event is unique but the common thread is networking – bringing people together.

Bespoke: Interested in a certain supplier but want a friendly introduction first? Ask us! Want to organise a roundtable discussion with other event managers on a certain topic? We can do that for you! It’s all part of the service.

Other services: Being a member of The BNC entitles you to so much more! Gain access to our Library of event management documents; use our recruitment service; advertise unwanted/cancelled rooms; raise the profile of charities close to your heart; get involved in important industry initiatives  – and more!

How are we different? You only get quality when you join The BNC. Quality conversations with quality professionals at quality events with quality outcomes. Our networking platforms are neither supplier heavy nor supplier focused. They are about you, for you, and with your needs in mind.
