Barbican Business Events to work alongside Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the 2016 CIPD Lear

The Barbican is heading to the 2016 CIPD Learning and Development Show next month alongside the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

The show, which runs between 11-12th of May at Olympia, London, will see the Business Events team join the Guildhall School of Music and Drama’s stand to showcase the Barbican’s offering including ‘The Art of Development’ – a selection of training, team building and development packages alongside venue hire opportunities at the centre.

“The Barbican is a magical place whether you’re attending a business event or whether it’s part of the world famous arts and culture offering we have here,” comments Oliver Hargreaves, Deputy Head of Sales at the Barbican. “The CIPD Learning and Development show gives us the opportunity to showcase the Barbican as a whole and the amazing impact when both the business events team works so closely with the cultural side of the venue. This is something that we are constantly looking to achieve because we understand the level of excellence we can achieve when we work together. The Barbican is an outstanding place for learning and education events and I cannot think of a better event to reach that market. If you’re attending the show and would like to learn more about utilising the Barbican then please do get in touch or pop by our stand.”

The CIPD Learning and Development Show brings together thousands of HR and L&D professionals under one roof whilst providing free to attend workshops, networking and educations sessions. More than 150 exhibitors, including the Barbican, will attend the event that promises to be a unique platform in which to launch products and services.
