Following astoundingly positive visitor feedback, Event Buyers Live 2023 (#EBL23) will return to Carden Park Hotel and Spa, the luxury country estate in Cheshire, from November 13-15. But that’s not all, the 2023 edition of Event Buyers Live will be the event’s ninth outing. Guests can expect first-rate meetings, top-class content, and unrivalled networking.

EBL, which facilitates pre-arranged meetings between respected organisers and event suppliers, will welcome only 100 of the live event industry’s most admired organisers. Accompanying the 100 will be just 45 valued event suppliers and venues for networking and pre-qualified face-to- face meetings.

But why is Event Buyers Live returning to Carden Park? Neil Fagg, the co-founder of Event Buyers Live, explained: “The feedback from last year’s attendees was overwhelmingly positive. Our guests loved the venue, the grounds, and the staff, so when your guests tell you that they loved the location, venue choice is a really simple decision to make.”

The Event Buyers Live team prides itself on listening to what the EBL community has to say. Fagg continued: “We have digested all the visitor feedback and it has provided the team with valuable insight into some of the small changes we can implement to make the event even better.

“Our VIP guests wanted to go back to the Carden Park estate. Also, they wanted the event to take place slightly earlier in the year, so we’ve moved our dates to allow for those important contractor negotiations to begin sooner.”

Event Buyers Live 2022 took place at the end of November. Moving the industry event to mid-November provides a window of opportunity for those conversations that start at EBL 2023 to be closed before the Christmas break.

RELAXED ENVIRONMENT

Carden Park Hotel – an independent hotel – has an award-winning spa and is located within 1,000 acres of Cheshire countryside, with a mile-long drive leading through the Nicklaus golf course, just one of the two championship golf courses onsite. The estate’s vast grounds provided the perfect setting for two Event Buyers Live Net-Walks, which enabled guests to meet new people whilst walking and getting some fresh air.

Sarah-May Clarke, operations director of Pub in the Park, attended last year. She said of the event: “Event Buyers Live is a fantastic event and a great way to meet and network with your peers in the industry. There is a great mixture of suppliers
and organisers, and it creates a relaxed environment for everyone to get to know one another better. The organisers create
a variety of activities to suit all interests like Net-Walks, workshops, and roundtables along with arranging valuable one-on-one supplier meetings. I would recommend any organiser or supplier thinking of attending to give it a try as I valued all the things I learned in my two days there and came away with lots of new contacts.”

Joe Barnett, managing director of We Out Here, described EBL as a great opportunity to be inspired through talks, industry networking, and new contractor options, and Ian Fielder, operations director of Green Man Festival, said that EBL is the most useful event he attends, and relishes the opportunity to sit down with suppliers, and discuss projects in detail.

Amy Foster, project manager at Tatton Park and for new shows at the Royal Horticultural Society, said: “Event Buyers Live is a truly fantastic event for event organisers and suppliers alike. Meaningful meetings with suppliers are surrounded by interesting talks and roundtable discussions as well as some fantastic dinners that allow networking with fellow organisers and suppliers in a relaxed setting.”

BIGGER AND BETTER

Carden Park Hotel and Spa is the perfect location for Event Buyers Live 2023 and features a host of facilities that will be exclusive to guests and will enable the EBL team to deliver once again something very exciting and special.

Fagg concluded: “We’re always happy to listen to the sector we serve so we’re more than happy to build on last year’s event and deliver an even bigger and better Event Buyers Live 2023.

“Event Buyers Live 2023 will be the place to focus, plan, and look forwards to 2024 in an environment that is not only relaxed but conducive to business. If you need event suppliers for 2024 and beyond, EBL23
is the place to do business and secure respected event contractors.”
