The Latest Event Industry Insights

In 2016, temporary structures and buildings found use in an incredible variety of events across the UK. At the legendary Glastonbury music festival, temporary buildings were used for everything from dressing rooms and ticket offices to first aid and lost & found tents. It could be argued that without the use of quality temporary structures, it would have been a much greater task to pull off the event.

We see this trend repeating itself across everything from film festivals and air shows to horticulture event and fairs. There is now a huge range of events that rely on temporary structures. But what has caused this shift towards the use of non-permanent buildings?

As a professional event manager, it’s your job to make sure that events go smoothly from start to finish. That includes doing things like marketing a new event, gathering information about the attendees of the event and managing all the activities, speakers and other forms of entertainment during the event.

One thing that every event manager needs to know is – how do you create a name badge that helps people connect with one another? This sounds like a relatively simple task, but there’s actually quite a bit that goes into making an effective event badge. We’ll go over some general tips explaining what goes into a good quality badge, and how to create one that’s going to perform well in a variety of event situations.

Personal data is becoming more and more accessible today as businesses begin digitizing everything. It’s easy to place orders, sign up for events, join online groups and register for just about anything via the internet. As more information gets stored online, and digitally in general, it becomes increasingly important to figure out ways to protect that information and to prevent people from gaining unauthorized access to it. That’s precisely why the Personal Data Protection Act was founded. This set of rules and regulations affects nearly every business in operation today, including event organizers. As an event organizer, you have to be aware of the latest information management tools and the standards in place designed to keep your data protected and out of the hands of those that shouldn’t have it.

So, you are planning an event and there are a lot of thoughts going through your head. This is completely normal. The Why, the How, the Where and the When, it all builds up. This can easily be a stressful time. Maybe it’s an office party that your boss has decided you are responsible for – that’s definitely a lot of pressure. Or maybe it’s your wedding – debatably the most important event of your life. Whatever the occasion, this article is here to help you, guide you and hopefully destress you.

There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but catering plays a crucial role in any event – and complimentary food and refreshments will no doubt be welcomed by attendees. Event catering not only encourages attendees to make an appearance, but it also provides the perfect opportunity to show off the generosity and professionalism of your brand – which can have a significant impact when it comes to connecting with potential clients on the day.
