Downie: awards set to be "better than ever"

Trade association Eventia has unveiled its latest round of educational and networking opportunities, with subjects covered including CSR, health and safety, and developing the skills of new and recent entrants to the events industry.

The first project sees Eventia continue its partnership with Visit London with a day-long sustainability seminar at 15 Hatfields, London.  Topics include de-mystifying BS8901 and issues around implementing the standard for the 2012 Olympics.

Meanwhile, Events in Action, Eventia's one-day training workshop for people wishing to gain a better understanding of the world of events, takes place on 28 October, at London's Riverbank Park Plaza hotel. Delegates will be taken through all stages of event planning, from development, implementation and evaluation. Speakers include agency leaders. Elsewhere, the health and safety seminar happens on 28 November at The Royal College of Physicians and a sales training workshop is due to take place at the Barbican Centre, London, on 24 November.

Away from education, Eventia is also looking ahead to its UK Awards, taking place at London's Troxy venue on 21 November. "This years awards will be better than ever we have a diverse mix of judges to recognise the excellence within the industry for International events that just keeps getting better year on year," said executive director Izania Downie.
