Our industry must work together, now more than ever, to bounce back stronger and deliver more exciting, creative and enticing ventures.VAC 2020 VIRTUAL is an excellent opportunity to learn, share and promote the innovative strategies that are being developed within our industry to inspire the public to visit again safely, yet enthusiastically.

Bringing the Industry Together to Rebuild

Organised by the industry for the industry, VAC 2020 VIRTUAL provides an exclusive opportunity to share insight, data and cutting-edge technology at a time when our businesses need it most.

Returning for its 17th year, The Annual National Conference of Visitor Attractions is the leading networking event for visitor attractions. Going virtual for the first time in October 2020 over two days, we are excited to invite international attendees, sponsors and exhibitors, delivering a wider industry perspective on how best to recover from the effects of COVID-19.

Who is it for?

The expertise and creative ideas shared throughout VAC 2020 VIRTUAL will be relevant to all organisations offering visitor attractions – large and small. From parks and gardens, historical or heritage centres, theme parks, museums and galleries, zoos or science and discovery centres, sharing best industry practice at VAC 2020 VIRTUAL will create wide-ranging benefits.

How does it work?

Hosted on a virtually rich online platform, the cutting-edge technology of VAC 2020 VIRTUAL mimics the dynamics of a physical conference. Attendees can easily navigate their way around to engage with industry leaders, listen to virtual speeches and access exhibitors’ videos and presentations on the latest advances within the field.

The programme will be held over two days; however, the content will remain available on-demand for up to one month post-event.
