In February, we will be looking at the need to know steps to plan and executing in-person events everyone will be talking about. You know, those events that if you miss it,  you will be told by others how good it was and you instantly regret not making it. 

With in-person events being so popular in Madrid, it is important to make yours stand out amongst the rest.

At this connect, CMX Connect Host Valentina Ruffoni will share with you her knowledge and experiences of over 11 years organising events with her most recent experience with Eat Out MadridEat In Madrid, The Afterwork English Club & CMX Connect Madrid. From the initial idea, potential venues, promotion to get RSVP's, securing partners & sponsors and reaching that moment where you step back and see your hard work in all its glory.
