ATCM Summer School and Awards 2018

27th June: Annual Review, Summer School, Workshops and the Town and City Management Industry Awards Dinner

28th June: Study Tours


Great events can be transformative for towns. They have become a key tool for bringing energy and animation to urban life, engaging the local community and attracting visitors and investors. For 2018 Summer School, ATCM is delighted to announce that we will be visiting the North East City of Hull, the home of the 2017 City of Culture for an events spectacular.


Events have played a key part in Hull's success as the City of Culture, illuminating the city’s history and sparking the imagination of its people.


ATCM Summer School will give delegates the inside track on what it takes to deliver a great event. Plenaries, workshops and study tours will explore different aspects of event production.
