Introducing… The Inspire Stage

RecFest 2022, The Zones

Hear the inspirational, apply the practical…

Drum roll please! It’s time for our final Insight Zone stage announcement and last is certainly not least… we are proud to present the Inspire Stage at #RecFest2022! The Inspire Stage’s aim is to invigorate & motivate you with thought-provoking stories and groundbreaking ideas that you can incorporate into everyday workflow.

As RecFest makes the transition from late afternoon into the evening, the Inspire Stage is the place to be. Watch as it transforms into a party paradise for the industry’s most legendary afterparty featuring live music, thrilling entertainment and the definitive Oasis tribute band, NOASIS!
