Event Insurance

Much has been made of the importance of public liability insurance in relation to events in recent years. A wave of litigation and expensive settlements means that H&S and insurance are two very hot topics for anyone putting on an event nowadays and there are stringent laws and guidelines covering both.

The important thing for event holders is to distinguish between what is essential and regulated by law in terms of liability insurance and events, what is good, safe practice and what is simply inaccurate hysteria, often fuelled by an indignant media!

The hard fact is that litigation and personal accident claims are a fact of modern life. Very recent parliamentary action is starting to curtail the personal accident claims and ‘ambulance chaser’ industry, but events organisers still need to be covered and protected.

You will find that many customers like to see that PL insurance is in place when events are being promoted. It offers extra peace of mind, so the bonuses go beyond simple adherence to law and it will be one thing off your list too.

Corporate Events

Its very frustrating when you have travelled to a location, only to be told by reception staff that they haven’t heard of the event you are supposed to be attending and there are no signs anywhere to tell you where to go – as this is when people just want to turn around and go home.

Setting Up A Business

If an unforeseen accident happens at your event, who pays?As we all become increasingly aware of our legal rights, and with access to legal services become more widely available, more and more individuals and companies will resort to legal action to address any losses incurred either to property or as a result of personal injury.

Branded Live Events

This is built around the customer’s experience (at the Live Event) of interacting with the Brand in a seemingly natural environment, which is why drinks, phone network and social networking brands do so much with live music in particular. Such brands are looking for new and different ways with which to interact with new potential – and particularly young – customers and there is no better way than with Branded Live Entertainment.

The function of live events management involves much planning and attention to detail, so is suitable for people who thrive on this kind of pressure.

How To Do Business

With the increase in use of laptops, smart phones etc, -these web-based tools for planning events can only make event planning easier – not just for the organisation planning the event but for attendees too, and anything which makes it easier for attendees and delegates to book and confirm attendance at an event can only be a good thing.

Business

Sub-letting can give you some welcome extra income, as you rent areas of your office your business is not using – you’re heating and lighting them, after all, so they may as well have people in them. If you want full control this is the way to go, as well as being cheap per square foot – as long as you take into consideration you’ll be doing all the admin and paying all the bills.
