It was time for our annual visit to a golf course last week and that could only mean it was “In the Rough”, the event industry golf day organised by ESSA. This year it was held at the spectacular Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales on the 17 July. Despite the recent hot weather the course looked perfect from the balcony of the clubhouse.
It's hot, it's sunny and it's summer, must be time for Sticky Wicket 2018. We were off to Regent's Park for Sticky Wicket 2018, the event industry cricket competition in partnership with the Lord's Taverners. The after competition party was held at Lord's Cricket Ground and we were all treated to a huge screen on which we could watch the England World Cup Game.
We headed off on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of an unusual UK summer to attend the 2nd day of Confex Future Focus. There were over 70 exhibitors in attendance ranging from universities, hotels, venues, recruitment companies, event companies and catering so a broad spectrum well represented.
