Valor Hospitality and the Holiday Inn Peterborough are kindly hosting AIEA members which includes dinner and complimentary overnight accommodation. There are various opportunities for suppliers to be involved in the event and full details are available on request.

This event is a combination of education and fun and is designed to offer Agents an opportunity to be updated from a range of suppliers, and enable suppliers to have a little fun at the expense of agents for a change!  Suppliers can vote for Agents in a number of carefully crafted categories – but they can only vote for member agencies.

Please note that during the day normal business attire is required but as we are in Peterborough, Fancy Dress is required for the evening and the theme is P for Peterborough so think Pirates, Policeman, Priests, Pimps, Princesses, Panda’s, Post Boxes, Pigeons – anything that starts with the letter P (we have left out a couple of suggestions deliberately!).

For Information, Bookings & Voting Information Please Contact Any AIEA Member

New Years Honors.

Suppliers are invited to join the AIEA in a new initiative which is combination of education and fun, which climaxes with the AIEA New Year’s Honours Awards Ceremony on Friday 19 January 2018 at the Holiday Inn Peterborough West.

With over 30 independent member agencies to date, and increasing weekly, join us for a two-hour speed dating style expo and workshop and then celebrate in the evening with dinner, the awards and live entertainment.

Even if you can’t make the event you can still cast your votes for agencies in any of the following categories, but please remember you can only vote for member agencies. This is your chance to poke a little fun at agents in an irreverent way and get your own back for once! We like to think we have a sense of humour so go for it!
