What is the Corporate Challenge about?
The Corporate Challenge is part of the Northstar Meetings Group Challenge Event Series for agency, corporate and association event buyers. Running for 8 years the challenge event format is proven to create an environment where imagination inspires business and builds partnerships between buyers and event industry suppliers.

The Corporate Challenge is a modern business forum that brings together corporate meeting planners with venues, destinations and specialist suppliers to develop long-lasting relationships. It is a unique blend of creative team building and effective networking based on engagement through gamification. It is an opportunity for corporates to be inspired by a tantalising array of presentations in an energetic, informative and memorable way. It is the not-to-be missed corporate event of the year.

Suppliers meeting the corporate buyers at the Corporate Challenge in September 2019 at The Lenbury in London. Including the most important 1-2-1 sessions, the famous BBQ dinner, taking part in the team activities and enjoying the gala dinner on the final evening where the team videos are shown. It really is an event to be enjoyed whilst making worthwhile connections within the industry.
