Adam Quigley

Head of Events - Ministry Venues

Lucinda Baldwin

Orange Events ltd - Director & Owner

Andy Lenthall

Production Services Association - GM

Hosted at the Confex International Trade Show at Excel London. With no official trade body the events industry has no set of standards for organisers to be able to compare and assess best practice. In an increasingly global market and an exploding expansion of our industry, is it time to get together and create some standards to enable easier comparison between venues, suppliers and events and guidelines for delivery to reduce admin and wastage across the board?


Are we keeping up with our guest's rapidly changing requirements?

Alana Buckley

Commercial Director at KERB Food

Hosted at the Confex International Trade Show at Excel London. With a move towards more dry events and entirely vegan menus, event requirements are changing rapidly. From translation services or personalised tech experiences alongside the live environment, our attendees expect the same level of personalisation at events as on the high street. Meanwhile awards teams are still sending out forms to ask about dietary requirements in advance. Is our industry in need of a major overhaul in our approach to delivery or are we ahead of the game when it comes to driving innovation?
