Events: live ● online

We have a range of well-established corporate events and branded business and public sector events that range from two-day national industry specific summits to more intimate round table discussions. Due to Covid-19 bmf Business Services moved these events online and was the first company to use a dedicated conference platform to give speakers and delegates a better experience.
Throughout the year bmf Business Services produces a range of branded events, the content of which is directly related to our range of publications. Whilst online events enable this content to be delivered to delegates in an interactive manner, live events offer the opportunity to network. We also have a limited number of corporate exhibition spaces at each event.
