At PNE we ignite positive and impactful change, by fostering continuous innovation, and directly uplifting the sectors we serve through our dynamic event experiences.
Anticipating a dynamic year, our 2024 will include 37 events, international expansion, and new markets. We are excited to introduce our new events in Citizen Experience, Human Resources, Digital Housing, Selling to the Public Sector, Cyber Security, Supply Chain and Private Schools. It's promising to be a year of strategic expansion, innovation, and continued success.
We proudly celebrated our most successful year to date, marking a pinnacle of achievement and growth. We made our international debut with our first HPN Miami event, surpassing expectations and solidifying our standing in the industry. Our reach expanded, creating a diverse and engaged community.
We reached new heights - our events became vibrant hubs of knowledge exchange and networking. We solidified our position as leaders in the hosted events industry, hosting 13 meticulously executed events. While 380 distinguished speakers enriched our events with unparalleled expertise, 278 sponsors continued to put their trust in us to provide unparalleled event experiences.
PNE embraced change, unveiling the distinctive and now recognisable PNE branding that symbolises not only a visual identity, but the spirit and forward-thinking ethos that defines PNE today. We continued to thrive successfully organising six dynamic events and featured insights from 159 distinguished speakers, further enriching our events with a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
Faced with the challenges posed by the global pandemic, we demonstrated resilience and adaptability. Despite the obstacles, we successfully hosted 3 events, transitioning seamlessly to an online platform. Secured support from an impressive 98 sponsors, showcasing the enduring trust and partnership with our stakeholders. 2118 delegates joined us, highlighting a fantastic achievement in an uncertain time.
As our journey progressed, our team underwent significant growth, doubling in size! Delivering five successful events, showcasing our commitment to excellence. Not only did our team grow but our community also flourished. We welcomed a record-breaking 457 delegates, fostering a vibrant and diverse network united by our shared vision.
PNE embarked on its journey from a genuine kitchen table start-up. By April of the same year, we outgrew the kitchen table and expanded. Our inaugural event in June marked the commencement of our impactful journey with 3 events, 31 sponsors, 57 speakers and 215 delegates.
Central to creating world-class events is having a world class team. As a rapidly growing company we’re always on the lookout for high quality people.
