EventBuyersLiveHealth and safety best practice, event management planning, event production solutions and Government policy are just some of the topics to feature in the educational programme at Event Buyers Live, announced today.

Insight Events, in partnership with Stand Out magazine, has revealed the seminar content for the upcoming event, which takes place from January 30-31, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza, Marlow.

Nick de Bois, Conservative MP for Enfield North, and chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Events, will present a session entitled – What has the Government Done for You? This is the event industry’s opportunity to talk frankly with Nick about business initiatives, Government policy and how Government can help the UK events industry.

In an interactive session dubbed – A problem shared is a problem halved – delegates will be able to join industry peers in an open roundtable discussion where events professionals are encouraged to come along armed with event-related problems so that they can be shared and a solution identified. Dean Parker, production manager at Wilde Ones, Nick Morgan, chief executive officer of Big Cat Group, and Caroline Clift, editor of Stand Out magazine, will facilitate the closed roundtable discussions, which aim to encourage the sharing of best practice and event experiences.

And, Matt Stone, safety advisor at AD Health and Safety, Mike Richmond, director of The Event Safety Shop, and Steve Kearney, principal safety consultant at Gallowglass Health and Safety, will all take part in a panel discussion that will debate the revised Purple Guide and changes in health and safety legislation, drawing on health and safety best practice.

David Wilson, director of Insight Events, commented: “We know from speaking to event organisers and agencies that education is extremely important. That is why we have put together a considered seminar programme where organisers are encouraged to share their event experiences and express opinions.

“It is vital that organisers attending Event Buyers Live find the event rewarding, so the education and workshops will give them practical information that they will find useful, and that can be put into practice when they return to their office.”

He continued: “We are delighted that Nick de Bois MP, Big Cat, Wilde Ones, AD Health and Safety, The Event Safety Shop and Gallowglass Health and Safety have agreed to share their knowledge of the events industry and they welcome an honest debate with their peers.

“This announcement is just one of many to follow in the coming weeks. Event Buyers Live has more exciting news to share so watch this space as we will be announcing more speakers, and event details.”
