In these uncertain times our thoughts go to our staff, colleagues, customers, suppliers, competitors and friends. None of us have experienced anything like this before in our lifetimes. It feels surreal but it is so real and impacting on every single person in the world. If you watched a movie about this last year you would have never thought this possible. But here we are in a crisis out of our hands wondering what will happen next and when will it end. We have made a commitment to our staff that we will not lay anyone off – we will exit this period of uncertainty ready to hit the ground running and do what we can to help get the events industry back on its feet.

At the moment we see no light at the end of the tunnel but we will get there; patience, resilience and support of each other is required. Easy to write down but hard to enact. We, like most businesses in the events industry had a great start to the year and with the prospect of some large and exciting projects ahead but since the outbreak we have seen revenue grind to a halt.

Every business needs to act in the best way they think, we immediately began cutting back on expenditure, opening up dialogue with suppliers about existing contracts to see where we can work together in cost savings where possible but we are all in the same boat.

We as a business are devoting this time to clear development and operational backlogs so when we get through this we will be stronger, leaner and keener. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any suggestions or requests.

We have already seen some businesses having to lay off staff and we need to be realistic as some businesses will not make it through this bleak period which is so sad. Our thoughts are with you all, stay safe and see you on the other side.
