The Bellweather report yesterday suggested that event budgets are continuing to grow. Is this something everyone on here is experiencing on their events?

Hate to say it but - NO :frowning:

In regards to budgets, being in the event industry for 15 years, I have seen a drastic decrease in event budget with clients now scrutinising event spend more than ever. ROI seems to be playing more of a pivotal role and more and more clients are now starting to run their own internal events, webinars, breakfast mornings etc
I see it as a kick up the backside for a lot of event companies to start raising the standard of their events and deliver real value for the client and if we do so and events match the criteria of the client then with any luck event budgets will start to rise again!!

Sorry to hear that!

Yes… It’s certainly tough out there but doable with determination & graft.
