Welcome to another week and for many of us, this is the last working week of the year and a chance to take stock, get organised, and get ready for a well earned rest over the Christmas Period. Here at Cloud 9 Towers, as a small business we are never really off work as such, but it is always a little quieter than usual, so helps us tidy up a few things and more importantly plan well ahead for our 2019 event schedule and beyond. An eventprofs work is never done!

If you are planning some major events in 2019, please remember that we have a free venue finding service, which operates locally, nationally and internationally and we also offer a full and effective event management service for corporate events. Picking the right dates is the starting point for most events, and to make sure you are not clashing with any already scheduled world events is usually a good idea, as well as anything in the vicinity of your event that might mean traffic or travel issues – and increased hotel prices. So some key dates for your diary for 2019 both in the UK and further afield to note, just in case!
