Hi!


(Belinda Booker) #860

Hi @Shubhojit_Roy What brings you to EventTribe? Are you planning an event at the moment?


(Ross Emerick) #861

Hello to all of you Event Tribers (Is that a thing??)

Complete newbie here so just wanted to say hello to you all. I was sucked into the exhibition industry just over 5 years ago after spending a fair amount of time in the fragrance industry through the medium of helping “things”, rather than people smell nice! Now fully immersed in worldwide exhibitions as a designer and builder - an industry that once you are there, it’s very hard to leave - A good job we all love it I suppose.

Looking forward to making my way through Event Tribe, learning some new tricks and hopefully offering some knowledge of my own!


(Belinda Booker) #862

Welcome Ross. You are now officially an EventTriber! If you’ve worked on any especially innovative stand designs, we’d love to see them on this thread:

P.S. what sort of things did you make smell good? I’m intrigued to know!


(Ross Emerick) #863

Thanks Belinda! I’ll add some bits to the exhibition stands thread later on!

Haha, It was quite varied really. I put fragrance into bath robes and towels, skin care into hosiery, We made shops such as Penhaligans and Selfridges smell beautiful, worked in the far East making Hello Kitty licensed products smell like candy and printed paper smell like pooh! It was that varied! The company I worked for were purchased by Unilever when we developed the Comfort microcapsules, you know the one with the advert where the cartoon family keep rubbing their clothes to smell them :slight_smile: . I am still trying to get fragance onto an exhibition stand though!


(Belinda Booker) #864

Ahh I love the smell in the Massimo Dutti shops! My dog used to smell amazing when I first got her (former owner obviously perfumed her) but now she just smells like… well, dog!


(Ross Emerick) #865

Haha. Funnily enough, we used to create the smell of “wet dog” for a a few print campaigns, I used to go home smelling like I had been spending the day at Battersea Dogs home!


(Belinda Booker) #866

Brilliant!

Glad to be here sharing knowledge with you all. Thanks for the acceptance.


(Matt) #869

Hi may name is Matt and I’m hoping to run a small music festival with a twist in the Midlands. I also run a special effects business for the media industry, film, TV, music videos etc.


(Belinda Booker) #870

Sounds great, Matt. How far have you got with your plans? Are you launching this year?


(Matt) #871

Probably the festival would be in 2020! I think 2019 might be too soon and I want to get it right. I’ve run ‘events’ but not a full blown festival with all the site issues.

I have a site with president so I’m going to let them do those toilet, parking, etc site issues as they have the experience. Yes it will cut down on profit but getting it right is more important than huge profits! I’m an expert in my field and I can project/program manage it as I have PM qualification and experience. I have almost got my outline business plan together. I have a meeting with the site this week which will firm up a few details I need.

The ‘twist’ is all in hand, I have the skills and the team to make this something different and special! … Well I hope haha!


(Belinda Booker) #872

How exciting. Shall look forward to hearing more details. We’ve got quite a few members who organise festivals so if you have any challenges along the way, or want ideas or recommendations etc. do start a thread and I’m sure they’ll be happy to help.

(Yasmeen A) #875

Hi all. I am the program coordinator for a childrens’ program in Virginia. I am currently planning a few free or low cost events. I am struggling with:

  1. finding a registration site that will allow me to limit the # of attendees
    And maybe
    ask registrants questions
    create waitlist
    accept payment automatically

  2. finding ways to ensure registrants actually show up

TIA!
