Top Tips for Returning to Live Events

Start with outdoor events

We are seeing a huge rise in outdoor event enquiries both from corporate and private clients. Even smaller groups for networking drinks are requesting private areas in bars with balconies or outdoor spaces. Our top tip would be to plan, plan, plan and get things pencilled in ASAP. We know all the best venues with outdoor spaces, so give us a call and let us help you with venue finding. It’s a case of fastest finger first at the moment, so let our team of experts assist and advise you, finding you some amazing spaces and hidden gems.

In the Know

It is important to keep up to date with the latest government guidelines. At Event Den we have several systems in place to ensure all those guidelines are followed. We use the latest technology for sterilization of larger spaces, we also supply sanitization stations and PPE. We ensure your event runs smoothly and stays on track. The guidelines are constantly evolving as the government runs a series of pilot events to test the water including the FA Cup Final and the 2021 Brit Awards. You can ensure Event Den always have the latest information at hand.

Change your Focus

As we re-enter a world of live events the focus has changed. The pandemic has realigned our values. People and the planet have never been more important. Sustainability and kindness are key. Make sure in any event you are planning that you are adding value to your guests’ experience. This can be achieved in a number of ways, through thoughtful gifts and kind words. As part of a return to conferences we are planning meditative breakout sessions, super juice break bars and we are installing charity bins to encourage delegates to donate. Be conscious of sustainability at every stage of your journey through the event.

Find the right suppliers

Sadly, a fall out of COVID has meant a lot of venues, event companies and suppliers have tragically gone out of business. Contracts have never been more important. Don’t take chances and make sure you know who you are dealing with. We have had our ear to the ground over the last twelve months and know what is happening therefore can alleviate any risk from you. We have a trusted list of suppliers that we know can be relied upon to do the job and we will guide you through any contracts and payment plans.

Hybrid Events

Hybrid events are here to stay in some form, they offer a great way of interacting in the run up to the event and limit the need for face-to-face time without totally eliminating it. They offer a form of convenience that people have grown accustomed to, and which offers unlimited networking opportunities in the right hands.

Have fun

In a world where we have waited so long to see our friends and colleagues, we deserve to have fun so let us help you make that happen safely.
