Training 4 Resilience – providing you with affordable, agile and flexible training solutions to prepare for, and manage, emergencies and crises

Training is critical for ensuring that individuals and teams are able to carry out their roles effectively and efficiently. We design and deliver a range of different training courses and sessions to support both individuals and teams with core skills (such as situational awareness and decision making, leadership and effective communications) as well as bespoke role-based courses such as log keeping and steward training.

We also provide incident management exercises for teams. These are simulations of an emergency situation and they enable participants to validate their emergency plans and arrangements, as well as building confidence and developing competence. Exercises vary from simple discussion-based exercises, through to control room exercises and live exercises where all aspects of an emergency are practiced in real time. Key to the success of a Training 4 Resilience exercise is the attention to bespoke details that make it relevant for your event (rather than just a generic discussion)

It is our huge privilege to work with a range of different events and teams including premiership football and rugby clubs, iconic music festivals and international sporting events; as well as small community events and organisations that mean so much to us all in our day to day lives.

NOEA is a supportive, welcoming and inclusive association that looks after all of its members both small, and large, from all aspects of the events industry.

We are proud to be members of NOEA and truly value the knowledge and friendship that the Association brings to us all.

It’s why we’re delighted to be supporting the NOEA Awards this year.

More than four million people in Great Britain play People’s Postcode Lottery. Millions of pounds in prizes are won every month, and millions of pounds are raised for charity too.

Over £1 billion has been raised for thousands of charities and local good causes since 2005.

The popular Postcode Lottery format sees a team of ambassadors knocking on doors and ringing bells to deliver good news and cheques to winners. This requires continuous planning by the lottery’s in-house events team, which helps bring surprise and excitement to neighbours in streets and postcodes right across Great Britain.

They also organise special events throughout the year, including monthly celebrations for the lottery’s biggest winners, unique team events, and an annual Charity Gala – previous guests have included George and Amal Clooney and Sir David Attenborough.


Fairgrounds can add colour, animation, and a vitality to any event and give your customers added value of experience. They can add to safety by offering delayed closing thus offering a staggered final exit if this is needed. So welcome to ADIPS (Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme) We’re here to ensure that each and every fairground and amusement park ride or device is certified as safe for use.

Fairgrounds and amusement parks are relatively safe when compared with other leisure activities and, in fact, represent some of the safest leisure activities of all. Each year inspections are carried out by an independent ride inspection body, whose capability to perform competent and independent inspection is assessed and monitored on an ongoing basis under the ADIPS scheme.

Imagine there was no standard for the inspection of fairground rides? Organisations working to different standards, performing different inspections and tests with no oversight of the work and control of the certification issued. What confidence would you have in the Scheme, would you know that rides were being operated and maintained properly, or even safe?

The result is the Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme (ADIPS) the national scheme for inspection and certification of fairground rides and amusement devices. ADIPS inspection is carried out by registered inspection bodies (IB’s) whose capability to perform competent and independent inspection is assessed and monitored on an ongoing basis. ADIPS certification is known as a Declaration of Operational Compliance (DOC). Look out for this; it’s your guarantee that a device has been certified as safe to operate by an independent and competent IB.

You don’t need to request or view a physical DOC! as an Event organiser all you need to ask for is the ADIPS ID number and then check it on our website : https://adips.co.uk/

ADIPS is managed and administered by the Amusement Device Safety Council (ADSC) which is made up of representatives from all major industry trade associations. It is operated by ADIPS Ltd.; a not-for-profit company. Any trading surplus generated by ADIPS Ltd. is reinvested into ADIPS to improve its services, or the industry to improve health and safety standards. ADIPS is the only scheme endorsed by the Health and safety Executive (HSE).

EVENTIT connects, inspires and educates events professionals from across the UK and beyond.

We offer a comprehensive range of events throughout the year which, combined with the EVENTSBASE online media platforms, provides event professionals with the opportunity for information, ideas, education and networking.

Following on from the success of our flagship annual tradeshow EVENTIT, 2023 will see the return of the E Awards which celebrates the outstanding achievements of both Scottish companies and suppliers and organisations who have delivered exceptional events within Scotland. Entries open early December. For more information, visit www.eventit.org.uk.
