The UK’s leading booking agents are booked

The UK’s leading venues and booking agents will come together in Harrogate this August for the mia next Connect Agent Day.

Connect Agent events provide a popular platform for a wide range of industry professionals to network with agents and give both parties the chance to gain useful insights within an informal setting.

The next event will be held on Thursday, 22 August at The Majestic in Harrogate where venues will be able to quiz agents in a 30 in 30 quickfire Q&A, before both venues and agents get to share their views on a range of issues affecting the industry in the ‘Think In Talk In’ session.

Following lunch, attendees will take part in dynamic team building activities before embarking on further networking at the ‘Happy Hour’ drinks reception.

The Connect Agent events have grown in popularity since launching in 2015 and provide highly sought-after and lucrative networking opportunities within the UK’s business meetings and events industry. Last year, the concept was awarded Silver in the Best Membership Initiative category at the Association Excellence Awards.

Agents already confirmed to attend the Harrogate event include Hotel & Travel Solutions, Hospitality Guaranteed, Venues and Events International, Inntel and Successful Events among others.

Jane Longhurst, chief executive of the mia, said: “We launched our ‘Connect’ events last year to enhance the mia’s informative and inspiring programme. We are pleased to bring our latest event to Harrogate and are expecting another sell-out day as we recognise this level of access to agents is invaluable.”

The next Connect Agent event runs from 10am to 4pm at The Majestic, Harrogate. Tickets are £200+ VAT for mia members and £300+ VAT for non-members. To find out more and book tickets visit
