Our News section caters for all different types of news from within our industry, therefore we have four categories – Event Industry News – Mercian Events News – Conference News and Hire News. From time to time we will add news items as and when we consider them to be informative, interesting or just funny. For those of you involved in live events either full time or maybe just a couple of times a year you will know only too well that unforeseen things can happen to the best of us, we hope to capture some of those happenings plus a good deal more – is that not what Live Events are all about!!
The Events Industry News
The internet provides a lot of international news, views and opinions which although they are about the events industry on the other side of the world they are also, at times, very relevant to what is happening over here and make very interesting reading, which we like to share with you.
Read the interesting articles below which our events team have written.
Mercian Events News
Working in such a dynamic and fast moving industry we like to share our thoughts and experiences, many of which just happen as a matter of course during an event. These experiences can be good, bad, funny, scary or unmentionable, the common factor is we can all learn from them. Check out our tips to help you with your next event.
We will not mention the occasion when a venue puts the client into a different room on the day of the event and we find out when we arrive on site that the new room is 300mm less in height and nearly 2m less in width than the room of which the conference set had been designed for – always make sure that, as part of your tool kit, you have a good hacksaw, chisels, a hammer, glue and plenty of wood screws and nails as you may well need them at 01.30 in the morning.
We have spent the summer months preparing for a busy Autumn and Winter. We have conferences booked in for all parts of the UK during the next few months. If any of these events are particularly interesting or different, we will include them under Conference News. So far this Autumn we have carried out a number of events in Edinburgh, Southampton, Thetford, Oulton Park, York and soon at Longleat. At the same time, we have been very active in our own back yard with events all over the West Midland region.
