What's Floating Around

What’s Floating Around Cloud 9? 9 October 2017


Welcome to another week and if you are a regular reader, you will recall that last week we mentioned the UK Awards Conference which is taking place on 7 November at the Cavendish Conference Centre in London – well this last week we attended the launch of the CHS Awards at the Independent Venue Showcase in Birmingham. Once again, we are helping Emma and the team structure the awards with judging so the invitations to agents have been issued and to date we have a pretty good jury in place! If you are an agent and want to take part in the judging, then please let either Janet or Paula know and we’ll get you on the list.

The AIEA is also launching some new awards which are basically designed to give suppliers an opportunity to vote for agents with some rather irreverent categories such as the Willy Wonka Award for the best reaction to chocolate or treats – so you get the picture – not that serious at all. Taking place on 19 January in Peterborough, I am not sure whether we will warrant any votes here at Cloud 9 Towers,but you never know!  I don’t think there is a category for the best venue finders but we will live in hope.

Away from Awards we are delighted to welcome a new member of the team to Cloud 9. Susan is from Milton Keynes and she makes broken look beautiful especially when it comes to events! With a background in all things marketing from working at U.S. based agencies to publishers across Europe and beyond – she has a tonne of experience.

It has been said: “Susan is a talented individual capable of bringing many good things to any project.” Family is her passion, second only to creating the best possible life for them. Running a supper club in her spare time, as well as being a health and fitness fan – there’s never a dull moment. Travelling for events has played a big part in career, but it’s not all work when the meetings are over and the champagne starts popping.

Finally this week, we are super excited to be a part of the World Superdrone Racing Championships which are taking place in Nottingham next March. 32 International Teams are taking part and this week long event will culminate at the Motorpoint Arena on Sunday 11 March.

Have a great week and don’t forget to let us know about judging!
