How to get events CPD accredited?
(Belinda Booker) #1048

Hi Rachel - great question! I’m going to start a thread for you to see if you can get some answers.

(Gordon Lyster) #1049

Hi Nick and everyone else on EventTribe,

A quick note to introduce myself, I am Gordon Lyster a professional event photographer, based near Cambridge but working all over the UK and Europe, I am currently working mostly on conferences and dinners and am looking forward to a 2 day conference/dinner event in Paris next week.

One challenge I have is hotel accommodation. Specifically finding myself sensibly priced hotel accommodation, that is close to the very posh hotels and event venues that I get to shoot in. Often at quite short notice! So far Expedia seems to be the way forward, but any good recommendations for better booking sites would be most welcome.

Do you organise events in Health & Wellness with greater focus on Holistic Plant Medicine…

(Emma O'connor) #1053

Hi I’m Emma… Founder and Managing Director of Happiness Now, A social enterprise supporting children and young people’s mental health.
I held my first event last week (workshop), and am looking at the idea of a wellbeing festival as part of our annual calender.
I came here for some practical information and inspiration.

(Belinda Booker) #1054

Hi Emma, congrats on hosting your first event! Did it go well? Did you learn anything from it? I know we have other members organising wellbeing type events so do start a thread if you’re looking for advice on that front.

Hello everyone! I just joined the community. I work for an Event Venue in Downsview Park, Toronto. I’m here to understand the requirements and challenges of the Event Planners and Organizers, while they are looking for a venue and what are generally the deciding factors in shortlisting.
