For Gray Dawes Events, this year has been all about re-visiting our processes and thinking about how we can do things better across our events, and this includes improving our sustainability offering.
As organisations continue to strive to operate in as green a way as possible, sustainability has become a key priority on the event industry’s agenda.
Here are our top tips to ensure your corporate event is a sustainable one.
With so much change going on in the world, it’s understandable if you are not sure whether to plan an online event or a face-to-face get together. By hosting a Hybrid Event you can get the best of both worlds.
A Hybrid Event or meeting is pretty much like a normal tradeshow, conference, seminar, workshop or other meeting that combines a “live” in-person event with a “virtual” online component.
Whether it’s a meeting for 10, or a conference for 1,000, our experienced team are here to help you from start to finish.
Our dedicated Venue Find team has extensive first-hand knowledge of properties throughout the UK (and beyond) and can suggest anything from ‘functional’ to ‘funky’ – tailored to your audience.
Our Project Management team is here to ensure all the finer details are considered and covered, so you can focus on your customers, colleagues, or the content of your event.
Incentive & Prize Fulfilment
We understand how a targeted and thoughtful incentive programme can motivate your sales team, delight your customers, and ultimately grow your business.
We’ve worked with clients from a wide range of industries helping them to launch new products, retain high-value customers, reward top-performing staff and increase sales.
Working collaboratively with our clients, we use our worldwide contacts to create innovative itineraries, stay at unusual hotels and create unique travel experiences – all within the given budget.
Knowing all the hottest global locations is one thing, having the tools to get you there is another. Gray Dawes Events can do both with our group travel event services.
We’re IATA and ABTA bonded and have our own in-house flight booking system to secure the lowest cost, most flexible airfares.
Our long standing relationships with all major hotel groups allow us to offer the best rates on accommodation and meeting space. We also arrange Eurostar and train travel, plus coach hire within the UK.
Delegate management is a key part of our event services. Using the latest tech, we take full control, setting up bespoke web portals with multi-page event info and flexible, comprehensive online registration.
Attendees receive simple, user-friendly and tailored registration journeys, attendee participation before the event (e.g. polling audiences for preferred entertainment) plus real-time reporting and analysis.
We don’t just make the entire process of delegate management a breeze, we make it something you can utilise to fine tune and improve your events.
