• Bring Your Event Vision To Life

    Partner with Accel Events

What we do

The Accel-event Incubator specializes in growing conferences and tradeshows for any market, on any topic.

Why we do it

You have a great idea for an event and excellent connections but you lack infrastructure, support and the experience to bring the concept to reality. In addition, you want to avoid making avoidable yet potentially costly missteps that can turn your great idea into a financial loss.

How we do it

We partner with individuals, teams and organizations (“founders”) to bring events from concept to reality. Successful applicants to the incubator will receive funding, practical support, mentorship and an event infrastructure that will enable the event to launch, succeed and thrive.

Your Idea. Your Network. Your Event

Do you have an event idea? Are you excited about working on the cutting edge of change?
Are you a disruptor? Do you have a rich network?

Accel Events can help you be the star of your very own conference or event.

Practical Support Includes...

  • Concept Evaluation & Market Mapping
  • Data Build, CRM & Audience Development
  • Sponsorship Strategy, Proposals & Management
  • Venue Selection & Contract Negotiation
  • Ticketing, Payments, Taxation & Accounting
  • Speaker Management
  • Design, Marketing Automation & Web Development
  • Marketing Partnerships & Social Media Management


Successful applicants to the incubator gain access to a network of mentors, advisors and event insiders who provide a wealth of experience designed to give your event the greatest possible chance of success. Regular private events give founders the opportunity to network with – and learn from – each other.


Founders come from a variety of backgrounds and are able to make a variety of contributions to the event.

The incubator shortens the time from concept to launch to execution, and provides the guidance, expertise, and resources that founders need to grow and succeed.

Ideal for event professionals, groups, association managers, entrepreneurs and fanatics!
