De-Stress After Your Event with a Spa Day on Us

(Nick Lawson) #1

Originally published at:

Life as an event organiser is hectic at the best of times, let alone the event day itself. Running around at 100mph with a million things on your mind can get a little draining to say the least. When the last attendee has left and all is packed up, there’s nothing more you want to do than just relax and de-stress.

That’s why we’re offering you and a friend the chance to win a free spa day (worth £200) to ensure you properly unwind and get the break you deserve after your next event!

All you need to do is tell us, in 17 words, what’s the single most important thing you’ve learnt as an event organiser in 2017.

(If you don’t already have an account you can create one in 20 seconds)

In addition to the Spa Day for two (which is redeemable at a number of nationwide locations) we’ll also be offering two £25 Amazon Vouchers for the runners up. The competition will close at midnight on 18 August.

My main lesson learned is not to trust the booking numbers when the event is free! Always assume there’ll be a good proportion of dropout!
That way it’ll save me a lot more headaches down the line!

The single most important thing I have learnt as an event organiser in 2017 is:

Always cater for everyone - even though not everyone who has registered for the event will show up.
