Does the fast paced event industry limit your creativity?
01 May 2013
Do you ever have ideas in the shower, or when chatting in the pub with friends? Has an idea come to you as you're just drifting off to sleep, and you leap out of bed to write it down somewhere before it's gone forever?

07 Feb 2013
As the banking industry lurches from one miss selling scandal to another, the event industry dusts itself off after what could be called a challenging period. However, with some positives London 2012 really did show that the events industry is a business and not some kind of hobby that can be directed from a spare bedroom.

The challenges of working within attractions
20 Jan 2013
Unique venues whilst offering unusual spaces also have unique challenges, unlike hotels that are tailor-made for events and hospitality.Venues like Madame Tussauds that welcome up to 10,000 guests a day may struggle to find the balance between daytime business and out of hour’s event business. Clients are often surprised to hear our daytime doors close at 5.30pm and that we will be ready to admit their event guests from 7pm, surely not?
