A Ray of Hope for Event and Promo Staffing Agencies


The news we have been waiting for is here. Events are finally beginning to happen again across the UK. It’s slow, it’s steady but things are beginning to move forward – the storm is beginning to break!

Following our Covid-19 Event and Promo Staffing Impact Report published in July, we can now release the first in a series of tracker reports, the first of which demonstrates a small shift towards recovery. It’s not huge, but it is hopeful.

Report statsDespite the lackluster approach from the UK government, it’s heartening to see that the event industry is not sitting idly by, waiting for help to arrive. Instead, it’s taking matters into its own hands, demonstrating remarkable adaptability and determination. In a time when the challenges are immense, event professionals are rising to the occasion, innovating, and finding creative solutions to keep their industry afloat. From virtual events and hybrid conferences to stringent safety protocols at in-person gatherings, the event industry is rewriting the playbook on how we convene and celebrate. This resilience in the face of adversity is a testament to the passion and dedication of those who make events happen, and it sets the stage for a brighter future.

As we emerge from the shadow of the pandemic, the shifting landscape of the event industry presents both challenges and opportunities. It’s a pivotal moment to refocus and regroup, to reconsider the fundamental principles that underpin successful events. Confidence is essential in this transition phase. Event organisers and professionals must have faith in their ability to adapt, evolve, and deliver exceptional experiences, even in the face of uncertainty. The past year has shown that the event industry is not just about gatherings; it’s about human connection, shared experiences, and the magic that happens when people come together. With this renewed sense of purpose and the resilience gained from navigating the pandemic, the event industry is well-positioned to embrace a new way of working, one that is more inclusive, sustainable, and ready to face whatever challenges lie ahead.
