News and Views


We are likely to see a trend for corporate events to be smaller but more frequent.   The reason being so they can customise their events to a specific group rather than holding one event for a wide variety of groups.  This feedback has been sourced from a number of PCOs and Event Management companies over the past few months. 
In addition, we will see a trend of more events arising out of communities which are often built around a problem.  
Currently, we are seeing clients valuing the conference design, which means customisation is key to every event, as the value to delegates is their legacy and the reason why they may attend again.  In other words, the focus for events is not so much on function, but on emotion and life changing.  
Another noticeable trend this year is the emphasis on food and beverage, particularly its quality AND presentation, as well as extended time to allow for more networking within the programme.
