Project Planning

For several months now, since lockdown was announced, it has become clear that the events sector, as we know it, will be sufficiently changed in the coming years.

With all our face to face events postponed, it became apparent that our focus, and that of our clients, would turn to the online environment.

We have successfully delivered a series of smaller events like The Business Journey for up to 50 people at a time.

However, we recognise the limitations the current platform would pose should we need to scale an event to ‘Conference’ sized proportions and have been actively working with venues, production partners and existing clients to understand better how we can design, develop and manage events to meet everyone’s expectations.

Four projects are already in the early stages of planning as we enter the 'New Normal'. Watch this space for further developments to be announced.
