Carnival

Welcome to another week #eventprofs and this coming Friday is the AIEA AGM and Summer Carnival at the Daventry Court Hotel and Spa and – we are super excited about the event as it should be a great event with lots fun and education in equal balance.

We’re kicking off the day with a training session for members about response action plans and crisis communications (which we are leading here at Cloud 9) and this will be followed by the second AIEA AGM. A great chance for members to catch up and help shape the future of the organisation. After the networking lunch, its time to get ready for the Carnival and we have some great suppliers attending and a range of activities to look forward to from Hook a Duck to Hoopla, Darts to a Dance Off and a fabulous selection of great stalls, games and attractions.

There will also be an AIEA Bake Off Area where eight suppliers are bringing their show stoppers for agents to judge, and our headline partners Accor/Mercure have some special surprises in store with their dance competition, reflecting their Music Fest theme for the year.

Each agent will be given a passport during the day, so they can register their scores throughout the day ready for the prize giving and they are encouraged to visit as many suppliers as possible throughout the afternoon. There are a range of fun and whacky races all sponsored by our fabulous suppliers, including egg and spoon, three legged and inflatable, and the sports day ends with a giant tug of war between agents and suppliers.

The evening will kick off with a drinks reception and a BBQ and there will also be a prize giving recognising the success stories on the day, and we will be inviting suppliers up to make the presentations. The evening will end with a disco and carnival party with lots of networking so show off your dance moves!

You can follow the action on social media using #AIEACarnival18 so look our for lots a great pictures and we hope it will be sunshine and no soggy bottoms!

Have a great week everyone!
