Hi all! I’m an Event Manager with an events company/ DMC specialising in special, personal and creative events in the Warwickshire area. I’m so, so lucky to work somewhere that I can be 100% myself at all times.
Our events may be for corporate clients, cgaritbavle organisations or individuals who want to create a memorable experience for others. We don’t do boring, that’s for sure, even when planning a conference. I never want to catch someone yawning at one of my events.
Hi Elly, great to meet you! What are you working on right now? Can you add anything to this thread with your knowledge of Warwickshire?
Hi! I am the PR/Events Coordinator for Pillow Talk, one of Australia’s largest homewares businesses. We have 58 stores across the East Coast of Australia and I specialise in in-store events, whether they be closed-door VIP nights, store openings or product-specific promotions. All my events are designed to give our customers a really wonderful experience with our brand.
I personally have a passion for homewares and love travelling around to our stores to meet our customers and surprising and delighting them!
Hi Taryn, sounds like you have a great role. Really pleased to have someone with experience of in-store events on board What sorts of events attract the most customers and how do you promote the events?
We’ve had some great success with in-store styling events recently where we engage an influencer or magazine stylist to do a demonstration. We always put on some food and champagne which makes for a lovely vibe! We’ve done these as both closed-door or open events and both formats have been very successful. We primarily email out our invitation to our email database and secondary to that will ask the influencer/stylist to promote the event as well as utilizing our social channels or engaging the shopping centre to promote the event as well.

You make a really good point there about getting the other event stakeholders on board to promote the event. This can really amplify reach. One more question, how successful do you find these events in actually driving more sales?
Welcome Fahmi! What type of events do you organise?
I’m delighted to welcome this week’s new members. Don’t be shy, come and say hello!

We usually have fantastic sales on the night! Usually whatever the host is talking about sells really well so we find that we can certainly cover our costs + more and then of course there are all the other non-monetary benefits as well!
That’s really interesting. I think I might write an article about organising in-store events. Thanks for the inspiration
Hello, Hola, Bonjour,
On behalf of my team, I look forward to engaging with Eventprofs on this platform.

I work for an insurance company in Reading and organise all of their events so it’s mainly corporate events that I organise. I’m currently working on a few events including some lunches, conferences and drinks.
I have a list of venues for a particular event and wondered if anyone had any ideas for how to present them that isn’t on a boring old Word document!
