Event First Steps

At Event First Steps, our focus is always on the next generation of event professionals entering the industry – and the one objective that underpins all our content is to help bring people in and up. By doing this, we create opportunities and strengthen the knowledge and talent of the industry as a whole. The key areas that we work for change within are:

Routes to industry
Better harmony between academia and industry will allow for graduates with more understanding and skills, and an industry with a stronger entry-level workforce.

Visibility of the entire industry
A bigger understanding of the many job options available will allow an events career to be taken more ‘seriously’ – and widen the talent pool.

Diversity of industry
From the top down, our sector is represented by a small group so wildly different from the vibrant workforce that they are lobbying for.

Get Involved

The event industry’s reliance on data to help it plan for the future, increase its resilience, manage risk and justify investment decisions, is growing year on year.

The engagement and access that The Power of Events (UK) has across all 7 sectors of the industry, enables data gathering and in-depth research projects to be delivered confidently and consistently. This will be primarily facilitated through the new insight app to be launched on 28th Sep 2023.

By bringing the industry and university partners together, research projects will be designed to deliver real benefits to the industry in terms of trend analysis, insights and performance improvements.
