We are excited to announce that Revel has officially been selected to produce the 3rd annual ISLEXPO taking place at the Villa Marina in Douglas, Isle of Man on 16 May 2018. We have produced the event each year since it’s inception – and it feels great to get started on lucky number three!
For those unfamiliar with the magnificence that is ISLEXPO, please allow us to boast – just a little.
ISLEXPO is the Isle of Man’s largest (and most unique) business conference and networking event. It is free to attend and expertly curated to leave delegates full to the brim with new ideas, expert strategies and valuable connections. Part conference part festival, it is a fully-immersive event for entrepreneurs, corporate professionals, industry leaders, students and everyone in between.
We have worked hand-in-hand with the Isle of Man Government’s Department for Enterprise (the event hosts) over the past two years to build a well-loved brand and produce a highly anticipated annual business event that connects, inspires and entertains all at once. We invite the best and most inspirational keynote speakers from local and global business to attract a wide-variety of delegates from all different backgrounds. Ample time for real connection within this diverse audience is a big part of the ISLEXPO magic.
In years past, the ISLEXPO programme has included a stellar line-up including former Head of Google UK Dan Cobley, TV adventurer Simon Reeve and techie entrepreneur extraordinaire Emma Sinclair MBE. In 2016, Britain’s most successful Olympian Sir Chris Hoy MBE hosted a glittery gala dinner and in 2017, legendary artist Roger Dean brought the late programme to life in the Garden Hub Tipis. Live music, the best in local food and drink and even a laser show are all part of the ISLEXPO legacy.
The conference theme for ISLEXPO 2018 is ‘LOCATE’, an exciting (and logical) progression from previous years themes focused on ‘START’ and ‘GROWTH’. Keynotes, workshops, panel discussions, fireside chats and a wealth of artisan hospitality will all centre around location, why it’s important and what makes the Isle of Man a perfect place for people and businesses to call home.
Delegates can expect the same informal, festival vibe with a number of exciting twists. Tuesday evening in the Garden Hub Tipis will be a night to remember as the pre-show Founders’ Feast provides an electric start to the event. VIP drinks will transform into the hippest pop-up pub this side of Shoreditch serving up artisan beverages from local food and drink legends. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, so watch this space.
Every year ISLEXPO has experienced growing numbers, increased engagement and (most importantly) provided a unique, thought-provoking event experience for all in attendance. Our aim is to continue these trends and see to it that ISLEXPO 2018 is the most inspirational (and fabulous) year yet.
