What's Floating Around

What’s Floating Around? 3 April 2017


Welcome to another week and it’s another busy one as we are all off to Leeds for the Conference & Hospitality Show at the First Direct Arena, which although is not on until tomorrow, starts with a hosted buyer event this evening. So the team will all be checking out The Radisson Blu Hotel.

This is great for us as its an excuse to get all of our Ambassadors together so we are congregating Leeds later today, having some training and then we are off to join the other hosted buyers at a party at Malmaison. Yes, it’s true, it’s tough being an #eventprof!

We’ve so many projects on the go at the moment its a little hard to keep up, so this week’s blog is a little short and sweet but we did want to share with you, some fascinating reading.

Are you ahead or behind the curve when it comes to adopting event technology? What talent are eventprofs looking to hire in 2017? How much do others spend on hiring venues, event promotion or content? What trends are other organisers paying the most attention to this year?

These are just some of the questions answered in this year’s 3rd annual Pulse Report which is produced by Eventbrite, which reveals all the key event industry statistics, benchmarks, opportunities, challenges and trends you need to know.

 Based on a survey of 800 event organisers – of all shapes and sizes from across the UK – they’ve taken the pulse of the industry, and made the full 44 page report available. It really is worth a read if you have the time and it looks at everything from what effect we think Brexit will have on the industry, to the average spend on events in the UK.

Have a great week and we look forward to catching up with you soon.
