The Future of the Events Industry

How do we see the events industry developing since the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic?

Since March 2020, the way we have experienced events across the world has shifted dramatically after all in-person interactions were banned. It forced the industry into adopting new event planning techniques to keep audiences engaged. The pandemic highlighted the resilience of event workers and being able to think proactively to keep the industry alive, ready for the return of live shows and the anticipated heightened demand for them.

We predict that the future of events will become more of a hybrid mix as virtual events demonstrated the convenience of accessing entertainment from the comfort of your own home. Offering both live and virtual tickets, gives audience members the option of still participating in the event even if they still feel cautious about risking their health, whilst still offering a full-scale show to those who feel more confident in mixing with the public.

We also would love to see increased awareness of accessibility and inclusivity amongst event planners. The last two years has taught us all to approach situations with more consideration and this should be reflected in the events industry to ensure that everyone can be catered for and receive and equal experience. Whether this is for the visually impaired on a Zoom event or a wheelchair user at a large-scale outdoor show, every attendee’s needs should be met and exceeded.

It is also important for events to further improve their sustainability so that shows can continue without negatively impacting our environment. Even making the smallest adjustments, such as compostable plates and cutlery to tracking participant’s travel methods, can end up making a huge difference. All of the events we work on here at NR Events will have their sustainability measured to ensure a greener industry for the future.

Secret Garden Party was our next venture this summer - leading the evictions team at the well-loved festival which took a five year hiatus before returning with a bang πŸ’₯

Loved having a great team that helped to deliver a safe and comfortable festival #TeamSGP 🀍

First time working at a festival and no idea what to bring/wear/do? We've got you covered with our top tips:

1. Always bring your own loo roll. ALWAYS
2. Pack lots of comfy clothes for your shifts. No one wants to feel uncomfortable when things get busy. That sparkly two-piece can wait for the evening πŸ’ƒ
3. EXPLORE! Even if you're by yourself, a festival always has so much you can see and do at any time of day or night.
4. Make friends. Chances are you'll see them again at another festival πŸŽͺ
5. Invest in quality camping gear if you can. The initial blow to the bank account will be worth it in the long run!

This summer, we took on Site Management at the Royal Crescent in Bath which hosted @michaelbuble for two nights to a sold out crowd. @aeg_presents took various global artists on a tour of the UK to the most picturesque settings we have to offer. 🌳

14,000 people filled the park along with many more locals lining the perimeter of the site to listen in to the incredible show! Credit to Ewa Korda for this breath-taking view of what NR Events managed to deliver alongside Senbla, LarMac Live, and Site & Stage. πŸ”¨

After the excitement of the Lionesses winning the Women's Euros last night, it's only right we share how we've been a part of some events championing the next generation of female footballers! 🦁

Across May and June, we helped the team at 1851 Trust to deliver their STEM Football Festival events to schools around the country to help promote #ChangeTheGame and the perception around women's football. ⚽

As an all-female team here at NR Events, we understand how important it is to encourage other young women to chase a career in the industry they love even though it may seem to be dominated by men! It was great to bring fun-filled activities to the next generation of people in STEM. 🦾
