All change at SITS, farewell Laura

It’s all change for SITS.

The Service Desk and IT Support Show (SITS), is the UK’s largest ITSM event, and arguably the largest ITSM related event in Europe.

SITS 2015 includes a few changes:

  1. Earl’s court faces redevelopment, so the show moves one mile up the road to Olympia
  2. SITS 15 moves from it’s regular slot in late April to 3rd-4th June 2015
  3. Laura Venables, long time event manager for the show is moving on.

The SDI Conference, usually in June, shifts to April. See

Farewell Laura

In the umpteen years I’ve been attending SITS, Laura has been synonymous with the show and the ITSM industry as a whole. Good luck Laura with your new adventures!

“Laura has been a great curator of the industry through the show and very positive and popular host.” Barclay Rae, Barclay Rae Consulting

“Laura…. Thank-you for reminding me how old I am ;-)….I think we met way back when I was at FrontRange, then Numara who was bought by BMC…..How time flies. I has been a delight working with you. All my very best for the future.” Andy White, EasyVista

“I was continually amazed at the quality of the Service Desk Show, which I know was directly correlated to Laura’s efforts. It is sad to see her go, but appreciate we sometimes need to flip our perspective to experience a completely new adventure. Hope you enjoy every minute of it Laura, and sent us postcard!” Courtney Wheeler, TOPdesk UK
