NOEA & GL events to Host Outdoor Events Leadership Forum

The National Outdoor Events Association and GL events will host the industry’s first leadership forum at the Event Production Show, as part of UK Events Week, next month. The forum will bring senior leadership figures within the world of outdoor events together to address the long-term future of the industry.

The event forms part of the partnership between NOEA and GL events, the first of its Futures Supporters. The objectives of the event are to help steer the conversations within the NOEA membership, and to understand what future trends will impact the outdoor events industry.

The event will be a closed session with no more than twenty ‘leaders’ within the industry from event organisers, to production companies, and across the supply chain. Discussion will address areas such as the future of ticketing, event technology, macro-economic factors, the physical make up of outdoor events of the future, and the ongoing concern from NOEA members on the industry’s commercialisation.

“One of the objectives of NOEA this year is to understand the industry that we are entering in 2017 and beyond, and to share findings with our members,” comments Andy Grove, Interim President of NOEA. “We’re working with GL events, as our first Futures Supporter, to bring some of the key people in this industry together, and to scope out the areas we need to investigate to get an insight into what the future brings for outdoor events.”

“This is the first event of its kind in the outdoor events market,” comments Scott Jameson, Managing Director, GL events. “Other sectors of the industry are looking towards the kind of events they will be having as far as 20 or 30 years from now. It’s therefore important to us, as a Futures Supporter of NOEA, that we help the industry look to the future and more importantly prepare for it.”

The Outdoor Events Industry Leadership Forum will take place as part of UK Events Week at the Event Production Show, 1stMarch 17. Findings from the session will be shared with NOEA members for comment, as well as with the wider outdoor events industry.
