Digital Excellence 2018 Survey - The number crunching begins!
We've closed off the Digital Excellence 2018 Survey and we're pleased to advise that over 300 membership organisations and associations have participated. This means our results will once again be statistically significant.
This year our digital focused research has been delivered by Official Research Supporter, Research by Design, and supported by 16 Official Champions comprising leading sector suppliers.
Whilst we crunch the numbers we just wanted to say thank you to all participants and we look forward to launching the results at Digital Excellence 2018 on 31st October. Delegates will each receive a copy of the survey summary report and we will deliver the results to you via an interactive expert panel and delegate polling session.  
You can access the current Digital Excellence 2017/18 Summary report here... 
We're taking our conference to the next level...

We're pleased to announce that our 16th annual national conference, Membership Excellence 2019 (#MEMX2019), will take place on Thursday 2nd May at the Novotel West London.

The new venue is conveniently located a short walk from Hammersmith, Barons Court and Earls Court tube stations and is only 20 minutes from Central London and Heathrow airport.

Why move? Because we have outgrown our current home (Park Plaza London Victoria) that has seen our annual conference grow from 200 delegates to 500. It is now time to step things up.
What will change? The programme will be completely reconfigured, exciting new features will be added, our membership focused Expo will expand by 20% and we expect to welcome up to 25%+ more delegates based on a huge increase in venue capacity.

Associate Director of Engagement, Kerrie Fuller and Network Chair, Richard Gott will be working hard to deliver what they hope will be the biggest and best 'go to' educational membership focused conference to be held in London to date.
