Refresh ’19

When the industry needed a hero conference…

Firstly, a big thank you to our vendors, sponsors and our key partners. Without you the event simply would not be possible.

Despite the challenging year, we stuck to our plans, grew membership, helped many members and vendors see double digit growth and introduced new services such as Harmonise.

Packed weekend

Hosted at Slaley Hall Hotel in Northumberland, our Refresh Conference has a packed schedule, offering the right balance of business, networking and fun!

Funday Friday

Our weekend kicks off on Friday morning with our annual golf event, followed by a selection of team outdoor activities. We then put on our costumes for the super hero theme party, dinner and entertainment.

The main event

On Saturday, we move down into the main event – starting with the Nemo AGM and breakout training sessions for Nemo members hosted by key partners.

A superhero team up

For our superhero event, we have not one but two keynote speakers. Geoff Ramm and Nigel Risner both previously impressed, so what better way to improve than this superhero team up!

Heroes and villains

From there we go into the 2019 Expo and the event finishes on Saturday night with our Gala Dinner, where we will reveal the heroes and villains of the past year.

Is it a bird, is it a plane?

Another highlight this year is after dinner speaker Eddie The Eagle, famous for becoming the first competitor since 1928 to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping and also his world record for jumping over six buses.

I don’t think you can put a price on it. You get to share ideas, challenges and how to overcome them. You won’t get that at the end of a phone call. A really good event
