This edition of ‘HGA Top Picks’ come from Becky, one of the Events Producers that works in our Events Team…
I truly believe as an Event Producer, I have one of the best jobs out there and the varied work with great clients keeps it interesting – from charity gala dinners to staff conferences, each client wants something different and to have that WOW moment.
Ideas are everything and being ahead of the game is so important to win clients and keep our current clients coming back for more. We all know the pressure of this competitive industry, so it is important to stay relevant which means being aware of industry trends, staying in touch with the latest technology and looking for innovative ways to engage with attendees, to name a few.
My top picks are a mix of event industry news websites and sites to find inspiration. Using a combination of these websites inspires creative ideas, which consider the industry trends, hot topics and the bigger picture of environment and sustainability.
Conference and Incentive Travel is an event industry news website. I use C&IT to stay on top of industry trends and see what the rest of the event world are getting up to! C&IT gives great insight into hot topics such as the impact of events on the environment, which helps to inspire how we can make our events more sustainable from shared ideas.
I love pinterest! It literally has inspiration from anything you can imagine, and we use it a lot to inspire our concepts and also share images with clients to build a picture of our suggested styling and theming for an event. I have an account full of different theme ideas collated over the years.
Dezeen is an influential online design magazine which publishes articles on design, architecture and interiors projects. Much of event design is inspired by interior design trends, and Dezeen is a great website which showcases industry trends in public spaces such as restaurant, exhibition and office design. Taking ideas from interior design allows us to create those immersive and interesting spaces which have a permanent look and feel.
