The Showman’s Show is the UK and Europe’s most comprehensive exhibition for the outdoor and special event industry, held at Newbury Showground on 19-20 October. This year, organisers have announced that it will host a dedicated stream of workshops and panel discussions, held as intimate and informal ‘campfire-style sessions.’ To create the right atmosphere the sessions will be held under canvas in the main ring, with The Tipi Company’s supplier Big Chief Tipis providing the structure and benches.
Panel discussions will feature experts discussing relevant industry topics such as sustainable initiatives and the effect Brexit will have on the event industry, while allowing plenty of time for questions and interaction from the audience. Each session will provide a unique opportunity for event organisers and suppliers to learn from their peers and contribute to the discussion.
Inspirational, practical and educational workshops will encourage visitors to participate and explore a range of topics currently affecting the industry including legislation, technology, marketing and ticketing. The workshops will provide an interactive forum for the audience to discuss evolving strategies and tactics and assist them in meeting the challenges that event organisers and suppliers face on a daily basis.
Show director, Jeremy Lance, comments, “The Showman’s Show has long been the place to source practical and functional industry staples, while also discovering new products and innovations. It is also recognised as an excellent networking platform. Having a dedicated area that brings all of that together in an informal and relaxed setting will only be of benefit to our visitors. We are keen to ensure that the sessions are in keeping with the rest of the show, while delivering something a little different to the event industry.” http://www.showmans-directory.co.uk/about-the-show
