  • When is it?

    16 - 19 January at ExCeL. We are also planning a Birmingham based one in the Summer of 2023

  • Would it be cheaper for me to be a member of The Ops Nest when booking the course?

    Yes! an annual membership for The Ops Nest is £440 and you would get 50% off the price so a total cost of £1,240 instead of £1,600... its a no-brainer!

  • Can I pay via invoice/bank transfer?

    Yes! Just send us a message - [email protected]

  • Does the price include VAT


What people are saying...

“I put my Senior Ops Exec forward for the course as part of her progression plan to become an Ops Manager. As much as I’d like to think I can teach her everything she needs to know, you can’t deny the value of being taught by the best in the industry!”

Head of Customer Success and Operations, Quartz Events

Catherine Beck

“It was great to see the team’s passion and enthusiasm during and following attendance. I genuinely believe anyone in the industry - be it organiser, venue or contractor - would reap the rewards by attending and gain a true understanding of the day-to-day challenges presented within the events industry. ”

Head of Event Management, ExCeL London

Jamie Harvie

“Rachael had been part of the team for just shy of 3 months before attending the Ops Foundation and completely new to Events and Exhibitions. Her confidence and knowledge since completing the course has increased 10-fold and I would encourage all of you to get on board and invest in your teams”
