Hi @Marie-Claire so nice to see someone in my side of the world.

I’m an Event Planner from Australia also with just over 10yrs experience in the industry, I currently work for the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre.

LOVED reading that you founded WomenInEventTech what an incredible initiative. I don’t have any kind of expertise in technology but recently started volunteering in an event related capacity for the VIC ICT for Women mentoring program supporting women in technology.

Never heard of event tribe until randomly stumbling across it online this afternoon, very pleased to e-meet some like minded industry peers.

I look forward to learning and meeting new people like yourself.

Regards
Jasmine

Welcome Shweta, you might be interested to see some research we did with 1,200 event creators in the US and Canada about their needs and challenges:

Hi Jasmine, great to have someone on board from such a major venue. I look forward to hearing your perspective on our topics :grinning:

@jasminee thank you!! lovely to ‘meet’ you too. Are you coming to the GAMES conference in Melbourne at the end of the month? I’m speaking on event tech there and am hoping to have a little womenineventtech pop up meetup while we’re there.

Hopefully we can meet up in the real world!

Good afternoon from England! I’m a magician based in the US and UK but working worldwide. I’ve been a preferred supplier to many venues and celebrities performing at private and corporate events for almost 20 years now. I’m an Associate member of The Inner Magic Circle (with silver star) in London; a member of The Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood and resident Curator of Magic for Ned’s Club, the new private members club at The Ned in London. I’m really interested in working with event professionals to better showcase magic as an art form and elevate it from the staid, tired and predictable that it can often be. I’ve written articles about how magic is to blame for being stuck in 1992 and what we can do to maximise ROI and innovate with magic at events. Connect with me on social @originsofwonder - it’ll be great to hopefully meet some of you in time.

Hey Jez, welcome, great to have you with us. When can people see you in action at The Ned? Do you have a regular slot?

That’s brilliant!
What type of conferences do you hold,and where do you hold them ?

We work with a few NFP charities they all do events very differently, would be interesting to hear your thoughts and views on events.

Hi Jos
The majority of our events are either in Cambridge or London, with the odd one dotted around the UK. The events vary hugely from normal conferences, c400 people to smaller events such as a workshop at Raspberry Pi. All our events are technology related, so might cover AI, IoT, Radio/Health tech etc etc. Here is an example of some of our events https://www.cambridgewireless.co.uk/events/
Many thanks :slight_smile:

Hello everyone!

My name is Stella Drakakis and I’m going to admit to you all that I am just a beginner into the Meeting and Events Industry.
It feels strange that I’m now registered in a community where there are so many wonderful successful people posting on the go!

I am planning on starting up my own Events Management company, I was hoping I could get a few pointers from any one here?

I know it takes a lot of work and dedication, but what company doesn’t, right?

Feels great to be here and look forward to your relplies…

Thank you

Hi Stella, congrats on entering the events industry! What elements of setting up your new business do you need help and advice with?

Hey everyone!

Also, Nick, thank you for being such a great leader and making the “EventTribe” so intrapersonal!

My name is Jaelynn, I am a professional model from Indiana but I work mostly out of Chicago and LA area. I am in the beginning steps of creating a festival and magazine who’s vision is to shine light on ALL forms of artistry, culture, inner beauty, and unity. Also:

  1. We will provide sources for outreach and exposure to organizations that are saving lives. (I.E. for sex trafficking, animal cruelty, prison fellowship, homelessness, the hungry etc)
  2. Increase popularity in artists spreading light through their work and decrease the trend of music/other art that promotes negatives such as violence/drugs/love of money/sex/objectification/etc.
  3. Influence a healthy living style that is not only healthy on a personal, but a global level(eco-conscious).
  4. Encourage and influence people to be open about their pasts/present and make positive decisions for their own and others futures.
  5. Create a fun and positive environment with our annual festival, that is not only poppin’, but safe.

I am currently a one-woman show. I joined to make connections and learn from those more experienced in this field.

Currently my biggest concern is making sure that I am doing everything legally and cheap, also trying to create a solid crew that has the same heart for what my organization will bring. Of course I want everyone to have a good income, but that is secondary to what this is all about.

If anyone has tips/sources/lessons for licensing/establishing EVERYTHING then please, don’t hold back.

XOXO

Wow Jaelynn, what an amazing vision! You might be wise to try and get some festival experience. Take a look at this article to see how volunteering can give the contacts and know-how to set up your own event:
