The spotlight presentations originated from the International Operations working group, as a way of sharing the vast wealth of experience and knowledge there is within its members who have organised events around the world.  Each presentation is based on a different country/ region and from the perspective of that organiser and their event/s. 

The objective is to provide an insight into the challenges, intricacies, local culture, and suggestions of what to consider when organising events within that specific location.  We hope they are useful and informative!

If you would be happy to share insight into a region that you work in or would like to be put in touch with any of the organisers who have experience in any of the locations mentioned, please contact
