Lime Venue Portfolio (LVP) is celebrating an entire decade of success by hosting a celebratory conference looking at the future of the event industry and the world of business.

The Lime Venue Portfolio brand was officially launched in 2008. Over the past decade, the business has made a significant contribution to the establishment of the unique and unusual venue market and has established itself as a firm fixture in the UK events industry. To say ‘cheers to 10 years’ Lime Venue Portfolio will be holding a celebratory conference on Friday 19th October, at Edgbaston Stadium that is focussed on the future of the event industry.

With a stellar speaker line up, this invitation-only conference promises to be a highly informative and stimulating day. The conference will see like-minded attendees come together to hear some of the leading non-industry and event industry speakers describe and debate what ‘beyond’ means to them. The conference will also feature thought provoking discussion panels and the chance to wind-down and network with nibbles at the end of the day.

Holly Tucker, co-founder of, has been announced as the conference Key Note speaker. Holly Tucker has many strings to her bow - mother, MBE, founder of Holly & Co, UK Ambassador to Small Creative Businesses, Chief Inspirator and co-founder of But Holly simply sees herself as an imagineer – someone who believes in the impossible and the power of creativity. Holly will be at the LVP Beyond event discussing what beyond means to her.

Jason Allen Scott, a successful serial entrepreneur, professional Keynote Speaker, bestselling Author and award-winning event professional, will be the conference host and compere for the day.

There will be several panel discussions throughout the day, including ‘what does the delegate of the future want from their conference’ featuring the likes of Elena Clowes, from Unicorn Events and Amber Maher from Eight PR.

Lex Butler from experience brand, Wolf and White, will be speaking on the future of event experiences followed by a panel discussion on the future of the experience economy with Caleb Parker, CEO and Co-Founder of Bold, Chef Andrew Walker from Compass Group and Ru Barksfield from BigBearX. Ru and his team at BigBearX are a group of experiential guru's & digital social integration experts who understand the fundamentals behind tech that drives engagement.

With over 42% of all event feedback been about the food, and Lime Venue Portfolio being part of global caterer Compass Group, we couldn’t neglect this important topic. So, our very own Chef Andrew Walker will be taking on the subject of the importance of food to event experiences.
