Foreword by the President Richard Limb CFIOSH, FRSH, MCIEH, DMS NOEA President 2013 proved again to be a very busy year for outdoor events. With the Olympics out of the way there seemed to have been an even greater demand on our 8me and services, which of course is good. Despite this many of you have given your 8me freely to help dra' the new Purple Guide which will be released later this year. A tremendous achievement which we should be very proud of. NOEA has con8nued to grow steadily over the last year as have member queries and their involvement in regional workshops etc. The Conven8on and Awards dinner was again well a9ended, members sharing ideas, networking and having fun. The recent member survey highlighted 70 percent of the membership belonged to NOEA for the pres8ge and honour of being part of an organisa8on which championed the needs and wants of those at the coal face of the world of outdoor events. We are currently leading on a campaign regarding Chinese Lanterns and are mee8ng the Government so help formulate Strategy. Over the next year we plan to expand our support for students studying Event Management and possibly to have a Student representa8ve on council. I have personally toured a number of Universi8es running free workshops and spreading the word on NOEA. 2014 is looking good with more events being planned and yet another busy year for us all. The Council is very strong, commi9ed and amazingly enthusias8c and are well set to enhance and facilitate the success and influence that we have. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support, commitment, passion and indeed love for what we do in the world of outdoor events. Outdoor events are, a way of life – a voca8on, a great reason to get out of bed in the morning, work stupid hours, get cold, wet, hungry, eat rubbish food because the rewards are fantas8c in every respect and we end up with a smile on our face. Many thanks to the Council for their support, input, guidance and friendship. A special thanks to Susan, our Chief Execu8ve Officer who con8nues to work 8relessly, to keep us all on the right track. Thank you for your support, I remain very proud and indeed honoured to be your president.

The President, Vice Presidents and all NOEA Council Members would like to thank Jan Booth and Alan Pope, who are no longer on the Council, for all their hard work for the Associa3on during their term of office. Since the elec3ons, when Chris Hall was nominated to Council he has had to unfortunately stand down therefore the Council have co-opted two NOEA members.




MESSAGES from The Vice Presidents

I am genuinely honoured to be taking on the role of Vice President of NOEA. I have been involved with NOEA for 13 years and over this 8me have become increasingly involved in the work it is doing. I have learned so much over the years not only form the conferences and conven8ons but from the members themselves. There is so much knowledge and experience within our membership and everyone is always so willing to share it that you can gain so much just through networking. I joined the council in 2009 and have enjoyed ge:ng involved with the business of the associa8on and seeing it go from strength to strength. As a council member I am currently represen8ng the organisa8on on the ongoing rewrite of the Purple Guide, working with the Police as they review their polices on charging trying to ensure that the events industry gets a voice in this process and working with the industry on developing new guidance on Safety Advisory Groups. It is a pleasure to be pu:ng work back into the organisa8on that has helped me so much.

I am passionate about the role that NOEA plays and know that we need to listen to the needs of our members. We have the results of the recent survey and I look forward to working with the council to look at how we implement what has been suggested. I am always happy to talk to members if there is anything they want to raise or ask that can help us represent them to the best of our ability. I look forward to ge:ng to know more people as we move through 2014. Andy Grove, Vice President

As usual, the copy deadline for the Year Book is several weeks before we go to print and as I write, I am just back from Scotland and the best a9ended AGM and conference I’ve ever been to. Thanks to Tom Clements, Police Scotland and of course Susan (now CEO not General Secretary) and Tara for organising that.


I’m delighted to welcome Chris Hall onto Council and to have Andy Grove as fellow vice – he and I have done a lot of work together on police charging of which more elsewhere.


My Firm’s involvement in Event Licensing con8nues to expand. Some8mes it’s a bit weird – one client who organises what can best be described as legal raves wanted his licence varied so that he could change the usual weekend of the event because it clashed with the Tour de France. I confess to having been puzzled by this un8l he explained that his fencing contractor and his security company had both won contracts for the Tour and couldn’t be in two places at once. Another wanted to know what permissions she needed as a wedding organiser to arrange for a pipe band to accompany the happy couple on a 250 yard march from the Registry Office to the hotel where the recep8on was – in the middle of Westminster. Some8mes it’s a bit hairy – another client wanted to increase the capacity of his event by 50%, much to the chagrin of local councillors – 6 of them objected claiming that the noise could be heard (and was a nuisance) a couple of miles away. Faced with a Licensing Commi9ee of Councillors who all knew the objectors and knowing that a successful applica8on would generate a likely addi8onal profit to the client of about £500,000, that caused a sleepless night or two but we got there in the end, not least because “partnership working” with both the police and EHO led to them suppor8ng the applica8on. As for the next 12 months, it looks like the usual lack of joined up thinking with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport wan8ng to de-regulate more and more and the Home Office wan8ng increased enforcement and 8ghter regula8on over alcohol sales in par8cular. As I write, a case involving sex shops (where else but in Soho?) has thrown something of a spanner in the works of the Government’s plans to allow Licensing Authori8es to set their own fees. Space does not allow for any explana8on as to why that is but fees haven’t gone up since the Licensing Act came into force over 8 years ago. The clock is 8cking on that one but even as we appear to be coming out of recession, the financial squeeze on public bodies con8nues and the inevitable result is that it’s all going to cost a lot more in future. With that happy thought in mind, it’s 8me to sign off and start the Christmas shopping list. I would wish you the compliments of the season but as I said, this won’t have gone to press by 2013’s Yule so it will have to be Happy Christmas for 2014 instead, by which 8me we’ll have had another AGM and, who knows, someone other than me might be wri8ng this slot as a new NOEA Vice-President. Toodle pip.


Philip Day, Vice President


Once again a busy year for NOEA. Culmina8ng in the AGM at Tulliallan Police College . I am sorry that Tom Clements The Sco:sh Chairman of NOEA could not a9end as he has worked 8relessly to organise our conference day which followed the AGM with excep8onal speakers. February saw NOEA at the Event Produc8on Show in Olympia with new owners Mash Media who have taken over the show and we look forward to another successful show in 2014. Again we will have a NOEA village with discounted rates for members and we will be holding advice clinics and seminars. We also exhibited at Live and Confex in March at Excell

The Conven8on and the Annual Awards dinner was held at the Meriden Manor Hotel, Birmingham in March and had increased a9endance with income up 11%. I was not sure how the team cocktail making would be viewed but everyone threw themselves enthusias8cally into the compe88on . Not sure that drinking whole bo9les of spirits was part of the process but I suppose all had to be sampled in the interests of perfec8ng each cocktail – there were a few sore heads the next morning! Conven8on is moving to just outside London in 2014 and we are working on a whole new concept for the Awards dinner.

Showman’s Show in October this year worked very well with the larger stand so members could drop in for a coffee, glass of wine and chat with Council members and this appeared to work well. We were involved with moving the Purple Guide forward and the dra' guide was available over the summer for comment. We look forward to the final version being online early part of 2014.

We will be working with more students on our future events as our pledge to get the next genera8on involved in our industry. At the AGM we had students from Robert Gordon University helping and students from Silverstone Technological College are already working on plans for the conven8on. Their crea8vity has already been excellent although covering the car park in snow did make the hotel raise an eyebrow!

Thought I would men8on a few of the other projects we are working on • The EAS Events Accredita8on Scheme – ELECTROTECHNICAL ASSESSMENT SPECIFICATION This Specifica8on is intended for use by Cer8fica8on

• • • • •

and Registra8on Bodies undertaking the Assessment of Enterprises carrying out Electrical installa8on work at events BVEP – Business Visitors and Events Partnership – new document about events and income produced by events for Government. All Party Parliamentary Group for Events, Inquiry into the Interna8onal Compe88veness of the UK Events Industry Britain for Events campaign Work with HSE on various Health and Safety issues and projects Licencing and Policing costs for events

I am grateful for all the support from Richard the President, the two Vice Presidents and of course the rest of the council. I would also like to thank Jan for all her hard work on Council during her 8me as Vice President.

Also thanks to all those members who have wri9en ar8cles for me some8mes at short no8ce,volunteered to do talks or rather have been roped in and acquiesced. I am very grateful. If anyone else would like to volunteer or get involved please let me know.

But s8ll so much to do, so many people to meet and things to organise and I think that despite the economy and the pressures all our members are facing I feel that there is so much more we can do as an associa8on .We have a huge wealth of experience and enthusiasm in the membership and we do not shout loudly enough about all the work and projects undertaken by the Associa8on. we just need to let more people know about us and come and join this really excellent associa8on.

Neil Marcus,

New Co-opted Council Member

I was fla9ered by the invite to become more involved with NOEA and as a co-opted member I hope to draw on 35 years experience of being involved in the event industry and 27 years of working in educa8on at degree level in Event Management to develop real benifical links between these two areas to ehance the industry and the educa8onal development of those entering the industry. And now having a foot in the door I intend to work on this challenge. I look forward to hearing the views of others and working with all par8es to develop ideas and plans to make this happen.





The annual conven3on is the opportunity to hear the latest news from industry professionals, with topics including social media, new legisla3on, licencing laws, events and educa3on and of course the expert panel. You can view our conven3on programme here www.noea.org.uk/annual-conven3on2.asp?subId=29

The Awards dinner will celebrate the best in the outdoor events industry and the winners of the shortlist will be announced during this ceremony. This year we are changing things slightly, so forget the suit and posh frock, it's 8me to dig out your wellies and high Vis and rock the fes8val look. The Awards dinner will be bringing the outdoors inside and for one night only crea8ng a fes8val of our own. There are a number of booking op8ons and sponsorship packages available for you online, so take a look and if you need any further support please let us know. We hope you can make it and look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a great event.

TRADE SHOWS 2014 will see NOEA at The Showman’s Show in October and The Event Produc8on Show in February, London.

Special rates for members to exhibit at the Event Produc8on Show have been arranged please contact Susan if you would like more details. LOCAL AUTHORITY GROUP The General Council now has two local authority members, one of whom is Andy Grove, Chairman of the Local Authority Event Organisers Group (LAEOG).

Local Authori8es will be an integral part of the Annual Conven8on and Regional Conferences, now and in the future – truly great networking opportuni8es.

The Event Industry Forum (EIF)

The Events Industry Forum (EIF) provides an informal mee3ng point for trade bodies and similar organisa3ons in the events industry to meet – usually twice a year – to share informa3on and discuss issues of common interest. Currently 26 organisa3ons support the EIF.

NOEA YEARBOOK 2014 issues rela8ng to the Olympics and has been involved in encouraging the development of more formalised training for the events sector.

Most recently the Forum has been involved in the development of a new Purple Guide for the industry, ini8ally in persuading the HSE to update the original version and more recently in taking over the project from them.

The new guide, which has been available in dra' form for comment by the industry and enforcement authori8es over the summer season of 2013, will be formally published as a web-based document in 2014 a'er which it will be regularly reviewed and updated by specialist working groups drawn from across the events industry. The new guide, which follows a similar structure to the original, aims to provide event organisers with an overview to regula8ons and good prac8ce across the many different sectors of the industry, from risk management to medical provision. Ini8ally 24 chapters have been published in dra' form with others con8nuing to be developed. The new guide, which can be found at www.thepurpleguide.co.uk, is intended to be a con8nuing and evolving document with the website designed to provide a portal through which access can be found to all the informa8on needed to run an event.

While the Purple Guide itself provides outline guidance, links will enable those using it to dig deeper to access informa8on on regula8ons and other more detailed guidance that will help them to run a safe and successful event.

Although the Forum is likely to formalise the publica8on of the guide through a trading en8ty when it is finally published, all those involved are absolutely commi9ed to maintaining the informality of the ‘organisa8on’. Further informa8on about the Forum – and the organisa8ons suppor8ng it – can be found on its website at www.eventsindustryforum.co.uk Jim Winship Jane Tomlinson’s For All Events

Through its secretariat, the Forum also provides a means for dissemina8ng informa8on between trade bodies thus enabling them to work together be9er where there are issues of shared interest. The Forum has no formal structure or membership, funding being provided to cover costs by voluntary contribu8ons by the suppor8ng organisa8ons.


Although the EIF is an informal body, it does occasionally take on projects on behalf of the industry. In recent years it provide a liaison point with Government on


The Local Authority Perspec3ve Andy Grove Vice President

Each year when I consider the posi8on that local authori8es are in, the 8mes seem to be hard and the future seems to be uncertain and 2014 looks no different. Despite the first signs of economic recovery being reported in the news, it may be some 8me before this filters into local government. There is discussion and debate about the value of culture and events and with it not being a statutory requirement it makes it an easy target to squeeze or cut altogether. In authori8es where it does survive it is highly likely that considera8on will be given as to who is best placed to deliver it and outsourcing is certainly a possibility, if not a probability. This is not necessarily bad news and could be beneficial but local authority funding for arts and culture and events is likely to reduce further in forthcoming years.

Safety Advisory Groups seem to be a lively topic for discussion with an inconsistent approach being a common and fair cri8cism levelled at us. This is hardly a surprise with every authority being different in the way it is staffed and resourced but with each one having its own legal liability for what is going on. I know for certain that many local authority events managers try and discuss the issues and strive for greater consistency but reaching agreement even amongst ourselves is difficult enough. Add in the views of colleagues from licensing, environmental health and highways which also vary from area to area and then add the Police, Fire and Ambulance Services in those areas then the complexity of the situa8on becomes clear. The chances of a Safety Advisory Group being able to pool the resources of all the relevant people and find that there is experience and competence for all areas that affect events is not that likely. That said I remain commi9ed to work with the industry to do whatever we can to try and find a solu8on that can at least be used to try and make things be9er.

I look forward to seeing a published Purple Guide in 2014. It has been a very long and windy road fraught with difficul8es so it is a huge relief that at the 8me of wri8ng there is a dra' guide out for consulta8on. The role of the local authority in an enforcement capacity crops up frequently and the guide deals with whether or not it is the HSE or the local authority that has

enforcement powers in certain areas. Once again the consistency aspect arises here as not all authori8es have people with any capacity to carry out inspec8ons and even if they do the ques8on may need to be asked about their knowledge and competence in the specific areas that they may be required enforce. Challenges lay ahead and they always will but that is what makes life fun! I am therefore excited about entering into another year of great events and hopefully seeing another summer period where some of us once again see the sunshine!


A UK newspaper headline but guess what, not aliens but sky lanterns dri$ing in the sky. We really need to stop these being sold and used at events. The recent fire at Smethwick, West Midlands earlier this summer prompted the NFU to ask again that these lanterns are banned. NOEA agrees. The sight of these lanterns in the sky is very beau8ful as they gently float away commemora8ng a birthday, a loved one’s passing, a finale at the end of an event but stop do you really know the consequences of se:ng one or more of these lanterns into the sky? Did anyone check the wind direc8on and surroundings? That doesn’t mean sending a burning one off and then realising that pre9y li9le thatched co9age up the road looked like it was going to receive a direct hit.

The damage caused to livestock is frightening even the so called eco friendly ones using bamboo instead of wire. No one could fail to be shocked when reading of one cow that ate the wire was in constant agony with no known reason, gave birth to her calf early and died in agony. A post-mortem revealed the wire from a sky lantern in her gut. Animals can also be startled by the unusual light, run into fences resul8ng in injuries and some8mes may have to be put down. Glastonbury have banned lanterns at their fes8val, the rest of the industry now needs to be responsible and do the same.

So suppliers , organisers, security firms, councils , health and safety advisors, need to get behind the campaign with NOEA and refuse to have lanterns at any event they organise or are involved with. Perhaps if lanterns were classed as li9er anyone releasing them could be fined as much as £2,500, but ul8mately lanterns should be banned as they are a danger to buildings, animals, marine life and you!




Michael Hirst The Business Visits and Events Partnership has been in existence for over thirteen years and brings together twenty leading trade and professional organisa8ons, government agencies and other significant influencers in the business visits and events sector.

The sector is quite diverse in its ac8vi8es and comprises conferences, mee8ngs, exhibi8ons, trade-fairs, incen8ve travel, corporate hospitality as well as other business, spor8ng, cultural and fes8val events. At conserva8ve es8mates this sector employs over 500,000 people and is worth over £40bn annually.

The Partnership’s mission is to garner cohesive opinion of these stakeholders and to collec8vely influence and develop the policies, prac8ces and strategies that support and generate growth in the sector. It also seeks to raise sector awareness through clear communica8ons of the social and economic benefits of the business visits and events sector. In order to achieve the objec8ves, the Partnership provides informed and representa8ve points of view for the sector; promotes the benefits of business and other events at all levels of Government; encourages the sharing of best prac8ce and disseminates robust research on the industry. The Partnership is an ac8ve supporter of the Britain for Events campaign and other ini8a8ves that promote the sector and supports the development of sector quality, skills and qualifica8ons

The Business Visits and Events sector is a significant and growing sector for the UK economy. It is a significant generator of economic growth, jobs, and both direct and indirect taxa8on. It is recognised for its world class reputa8on in crea8vity and its highly skilled workforce and contributes posi8vely to the cultural development of the country. It is a major source of export income and contributor to the UK’s balance of payments.

NOEA YEARBOOK 2014 programme which will ensure minister across all Government Departments become an integral part of the bid process for major events to Britain. This will involve signing bid le9ers, welcoming visi8ng delega8ons and a9ending event ceremonies.

Other areas of lobbying involve the provision of subven8on support to des8na8ons to enable them to compete with overseas loca8ons, reduc8ons in VAT on venue hire and conference services and allowances for export promo8on.

Raising the sector’s profile is cri8cal if policy makers are to be influenced about the important contribu8on the Events’ sector makes to the economy and community well-being. Here the Partnership’s charter is to provide a cohesive voice for the events industry, promote the benefits of business visits and events to local and na8onal government, influence policy and strategies that support and drive the sector, and use key influencers to provide a compelling industry message to the wider world. Bilateral mee8ngs with Ministers from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, where live events sit in terms of government policy, are also high on the agenda, alongside growing engagement with UK Trade and Investment and the Department for Business, Innova8on and Skills. In addi8on, ge:ng on the local agenda is increasingly important. At least eight per cent of the total workforce of any cons8tuency in the UK is employed in the events sector. The success of the London 2012 Olympic Games and how its legacy can benefit the live events industry longterm hasn’t escaped BVEP’s no8ce either. People got the message that a big spor8ng occasion is as much about brand and business communica8on as it is about sport. This was a fact that resonated in the right places. Events drive local economies, visitor numbers and shape the profile of many des8na8ons. It is good that the sector is now being recognised for its contribu8on and that its representa8ve organisa8ons are working together to ensure the industry can reach its full poten8al.

Currently the Partnership is working on a number of ini8a8ves which will have benefit for all parts of the industry.

Working with the Minister for Tourism, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and VisitEngland, it is hoped to sign off shortly on a Ministerial Bid Support

The Establishment of an APPG of MP’s for the Events Industry

In 2010, a number of the Associa8ons that belong to the Event Industry Forum expressed a desire to form an All Party Poli8cal Group of MP’s to represent the UK event industry in Parliament. A'er much informal discussion, and not a li9le research, feelers were put out by some EIF members and Michael Hirst of BVEP in an a9empt at iden8fying a possible Chairman or Chairwomen of the proposed APPG. It was deemed essen8al that any Chairperson should have experience in the events industry if at all possible, which somewhat narrowed the field of prospec8ve Chairpersons. Towards the end of 2010 at a recep8on organised by Visit Britain and held at the Houses of Parliament, Nick de Bois, MP for Ealing North, indicated that he was prepared to stand as Chairman of an APPG. This was deemed an ideal solu8on since before entering Parliament, Nick had run his own successful Event Organisa8on, and was therefore judged to be an en8rely suitable candidate.

To gain official approval within Westminster the make-up of the membership of an APPG needs to include MP’s and Lords drawn from all of the main par8es in the House of Commons and from the House of Lords. Therefore shortly a'er the recep8on at the House of Commons, Nick de Bois arranged for a circular to be sent to all of the members of the both Houses asking for any members of either House with an interest in the UK Events industry to come forward and join the APPG. This resulted in a list of more than 23 MP’s who indicated their willingness to join. To gain suitable representa8on at Parliament, individuals or organisa8ons need a ‘Champion’ to promote their ideas within Westminster and an APPG does exactly that. In addi8on, the members of an APPG are able to exert influence on Ministers and ask suitable per8nent ques8ons in the House.

In 2012, the year in which there have been more major public events than in any other year, including Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee, the UK-wide Torch Relay, the subsequent London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics and the myriad other associated public events arranged to coincide with the above happenings, the influence of the APPG for Events has been par8cularly important. So what does the future hold for the APPG for Events? It is quite possible that there will be closer co-opera8on with the APPG’s for Football, Rugby and other groups that already exist and that represent par8cular bits if what is usually just known as the ‘Events Industry’, in order to enhance the influence our industry has in Parliament, for there is undoubted strength in numbers! The Event Industry Forum is shortly to conduct an online survey in order to collect as much informa8on about the organisa8on of the major events in 2012 and their rela8ve success or failure. The answers given by the par8cipants of that survey will provide the members of the APPG for Events with as much informa8on as possible on how well 2012’s large events actually performed.

The feel good factor created by the success of the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics is important for the people of Britain, but the event industry itself needs to know what stumbling blocks there were during the build-up to the Games, what could or should have been improved and what we need to do as an industry to make things even be9er the next 8me we organise a very large event. The members of the APPG for Events can help promote our industry and help us achieve our goals by raising the profile of our industry at Westminster. Phil Mist

The Genesis Ini3a3ve

NOEA joined this organization in 2006 which has the support of more than 150 trade associations and similar bodies representing Micro, Small and Medium sized Enterprises known generally as SME’s but recently amended to MSME’s. Details of the Genesis Initiative appear on their website (www.genesis-initiatve.org) and the aims and the role of the organisation is defined by this statement which appears on the site. “Small business is the backbone of the British economy and when it does well the whole country does well. The role of Genesis is to act as an umbrella organisation, working on your behalf to optimise potential growth in the SME sector by fostering a "can do" culture. We aim to participate fully in achieving the economic and structural reforms that will enable business to flourish. New jobs, new ideas and new wealth will be created if small businesses are thriving. Our role is to help sustain this business environment. We work closely with opinion formers within the UK and Europe in pressing for change where change is necessary. By galvanising the SME community we can ensure that the voice of the sector will be heard loud and clear.”

Regular breakfast meetings at held at the House of Commons and House of Lords at which various Ministers of State, their opposition counterparts and other MPs, Lords and senior civil servants have given presentations on topical matters. There is an opportunity to put forward some questions and already some useful information and contacts have been made. By joining such lobby groups, NOEA and other event associations are beginning to receive recognition in parliamentary circles.

A NOEA Council Member attends Breakfast Meetings, Senate Meetings, other parliamentary all party group meetings, governmental department meetings and Genesis Bank of England Meetings. We have presented a positive and forward thinking input into such gatherings which has resulted in positive advantages for our members but what is more important is that some decision makers have been influenced in such a way that some planned disadvantages to our members have been revised resulting in a better outcome.

Event Industry News

As I write our entry for the 2014 yearbook we can, for the first 8me, have genuine empathy with event organisers. 2013 saw us launch the Event Technology Awards and host an accompanying gala dinner. Whilst this is small fry compared to a major outdoor event, it certainly gave us a taste of the many issues faced by an event organiser and just how tough their job is. When it comes to understanding the market we serve, experiences like this are invaluable. We are now in a posi8on to combine our exper8se with our experience, using the feedback we have gathered since launching EIN to enhance and improve the service we offer. What we are now seeing in our industry is a similar a:tude among suppliers. As the demands of event organisers become more fervent, suppliers need to use past experiences as a means to enhance their services and, if necessary, develop new ones.

In an industry that is evolving and developing as quickly as this one, Event Industry News is planning some major developments in 2014 in order to meet the growing demands of our audience, including a major restructure of the website and improvements to our cross-pla7orm access via mobile devices. The increasing reliance on digital accessibility, combined with the expecta8on for informa8on to be instantaneous, means that all businesses are reassessing the way in which they communicate their messages. In light of this, EIN has recently launched its first digital supplement ‘The Virtual Fes8val’. This virtual magazine will, for the first 8me, provide suppliers with a truly interac8ve way to display their messages, with videos and animated content a key component of the supplement. Our media partnership with the NOEA is another area that we look to develop in the coming year. The spotlight ar8cles on different member companies have been very well received, giving a range of suppliers an excellent opportunity to promote their work and amplify their EIN Technology Awards


NOEA YEARBOOK 2014 brand via our online channels. Having been the ones driving this par8cular feature, we would like to see more NOEA members being proac8ve with their communica8ons and taking advantage of our media partnership. Members looking to feature in one of our monthly spotlights should feel free to approach us, and we would also love to hear about the events that members are working on.

2014 is an extremely important year for our colleagues in Scotland. As Glasgow prepares to host the Commonwealth Games, the industry has yet another major spor8ng event to bring focus and drive to its efforts. We have no doubt that NOEA Scotland will have a major role in suppor8ng those members involved in the games. With so much good feeling emana8ng from the London Olympics in 2012, if Glasgow 2014 can generate even a frac8on of that, then the UK events industry will again be thrust in to a posi8ve spotlight. We look forward to hearing from you in 2014 via [email protected]

On the 26th of November 2013 a group of 9 students and 1 lecturer from Robert Gordon University travelled to the Sco:sh Police College, Tulliallan near Edinburgh for the Na8onal Outdoor Events Associa8on AGM and Na8onal Conference. Around 100 delegates arrived and enjoyed talks from a variety of different and interes8ng speakers.

Deputy Chief Constable, Steve Allen began the conference by welcoming all to the conference and also to the Police College. Following him we heard from the Chief Communica8ons Officer of the Organising Commi9ee for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Gordon Arthur. He led the talk by giving us an insight into what to expect from the Commonwealth Games and the build up to the games, including showing us when the Queens Baton Relay began and when it will pass through each town in the UK. Gordon Arthur gave us many facts and figures rela8ng to the Games, showing us the extent of the costs and the number of people they are expec8ng through the door in the opening weekend of the Commonwealth which is 350,000. Following this was a very engaging and passionate talk from Geoff Ellis, the CEO of DF Concerts and Events. He is responsible for the organisa8on of Scotland’s biggest fes8val; T in the Park. He began by talking to us about the difficul8es they face when finding a headlining act for T as there is a scarcity of talent in the music industry nowadays and due to this the prices for great musical ar8sts are rising. He led on to discuss a more serious topic on the subject of legal highs and the problems facing the fes8val with the increased use and naivety of fes8val goers when being offered a legal high. It was concluded that working with the police the industry will campaign to get the term “legal high” changed as it gives an impression to the public that drugs can be safe. It was very clear throughout Geoff Ellis’s talk that he was very passionate about his job and understood clearly what his target audience wanted and expected from their 8me at T in the Park. Before the break for lunch we heard Andy Bates, Chief Superintendent of the Strathclyde Police-force. He spoke to us about the police impact at events, their du8es and reasons for a9ending, for example they had 300 police officers patrolling the T in the Park grounds in 24 hours.

He explained that it is important for the police to protect human rights and that some8mes police ac8on can cause more problems than it may solve. It was an informa8ve and interes8ng talk which showed Mr Bates’ enthusiasm and passion for his job.

Throughout the rest of the a'ernoon we heard from Alex Hill and the impact weather has on events, he began his talk with a lot of enthusiasm and a clear knowledge of what he was talking about. His sharp and wi9y comments amused the audience whilst he discussed the importance of preparing for all weather condi8ons and “minimizing risk.” The final talks of the a'ernoon were heard from John Gilligan; Managing Director of Tennent Caledonian Breweries in which he spoke about the importance of sponsorship and events and the main keys for success in business. Marion Gamel introduced us to the rising importance of social media and paperless 8ckets in events as well the Events Director of EventScotland, Stuart Turner, described how to deliver the Na8onal Events Strategy for Scotland and that the three main priori8es in the event industry is to “sustain, grow and develop.” The last talk came from Tom O’Brien which was led with an inspiring video showing a variety of events which had taken place in Edinburgh. He gave a short and interac8ve speech about the challenges (and how to overcome them) which face Edinburgh due to the amount of events which take place across the city each year. Overall it was a great day full of very important and relatable informa8on which we can take forward in our studies of event management over the years. Alasdair Lemon, a first year at Robert Gordon said “It was incredibly mo8va8ng to become more involved in organisa8ons to develop myself as an event student.”

Wireless Microphone Informa3on

Although there have been many ar8cles and discussions in the audio industry trade magazines and websites, it appears there is s8ll a lack of understanding amongst many of the Programme Making and Special Events (PMSE) users out there in the UK. This includes schools, churches and small produc8on companies. It was announced back in 2009 that the exis8ng UHF TV band channel 69 (854.900 - 861.750 MHz) used by most Radio Microphone and In-Ear Monitor (IEM) systems was going to form part of the digital dividend release of the 800MHz band frequency space following the closure of the analogue television service in 2012. This channel along with other channels from 61-69 have been reserved for other uses as from 1st January 2013. This frequency space has been auc8oned off mainly to the mobile phone networks for 4G high speed data services and it is now illegal to operate other equipment in these bands. Apart from anything else, once the 4G networks start transmi:ng in this spectrum, the interference generated would render radio mic systems unusable anyhow. To operate legally, your wireless mics or IEM systems must either use the new shared frequency range in channel 38 (606-614 MHz) and you must hold a PMSE A'er Dark Fireworks – Yellow Bus Events Ltd


Shared Frequency licence, or you can use up to 5 systems (in perfect condi8ons) in the de-regulated spectrum of channel 70 (863-865 MHz) without a license. We do not recommend the use of Channel 70 for professional applica8ons as this is prone to interference from other systems, including baby monitors! If you are a sta8c venue using more than 1 or 2 systems, it is strongly recommended and desirable to obtain a site specific licence for an interleaved frequency channel (Ch 21-30 & 41-60). What this means is that you can use a frequency that is not being used by Digital Terrestrial Television services in your area as long as you obtain a license to do so. This has the advantage that you will not be using shared radio mic channels and therefore less prone to interference from other systems, including incoming tours. It would also be illegal for anyone else to operate on the same frequencies in your area without a license, which they would not be granted if you got there first! The ability to change to Ch 38 shared or other interleave channels is dependent on the tuning ability of your exis8ng radio mic or IEM systems. A system designed for channel 69 use is very unlikely to be able to re-tune to channel 38, although it could most likely operate in channel 70 (with the limita8ons stated above). The tuning range of the system is normally stated on the receiver (or transmi9er in the case of IEM systems), or can usually be worked out from the tuning menu.

SRD Group can provide you with free guidance and assistance to ensure that you remain legal and enjoy trouble free opera8on of your wireless systems. In some cases it may be necessary to replace exis8ng equipment, for which we can provide a compe88ve quote and help with the necessary licensing arrangements. Stuart Roberts

Events, CDM & Consulta3on

By the 8me this year book is published, the HSE should be about to publish the consulta8ve document for the revised CDM regula8ons which will probably introduce whole new terminologies into the Events Industry for the design and management of events. This will probably concern a few people but is not actually that frightening. A well managed event will not need to make too many changes for the new regula8ons.

The HSE have re-iterated that the ac8vi8es of building temporary structures & stages, mechanical and electrical fit out and site prepara8on have all been enforceable under CDM regula8ons in the past. It is simply that they have not done so un8l now as the HSE prefers to recognise the ac8vi8es that are undertaken and apply regula8ons to those rather than looking at a par8cular industry. However, the proposed extension conflicts with the enforcement regula8ons which may cause some conflict with Local authori8es.

The HSE has had a lot of problems trying to incorporate event management systems into the frame work of CDM. "Producer equals client equals controlling mind" works for some events but does not work well for other events or for exhibi8ons. CDM is about who is in charge and who has the authority, therefore clear lines of authority need to be shown in organisa8on charts. CDM is about crea8ng structures to promote health and safety and therefore needs to include enforcement / escala8on. Event safety plan and CDM plan are close enough as concepts to be inter-changeable. Project prepara8on manager is to replace CDM coordinator.

The CDM ACOP is to be withdrawn and will not be replaced. In the opinion of the author that will cause problems. Instead targeted Guidance notes, applicable to the entertainment industry par8cularly for venues and clients, will be made available. Contractors are not seen to be so much of an issue (as they usually work to the requisite standards anyway) but suitable checks for competency and training will be required.

No8fica8on will be similar to that exis8ng for Construc8on sites. If more than one contractor, one of them must be the principal contractor which will effec8vely be the organiser or the produc8on manger. Competence requirements no longer to be defined (the management regula8ons will s8ll apply) and induc8on training will not be required if suitable levels of competency and training can be shown. Further clarifica8on will be required in regards to how the event becomes no8fiable. The bo9om line is that we will need to see the fine print and defini8ons when the CD is released in a month or two’s 8me and then as an industry we will need to make a co-ordinated response. NOEA will of course be at the heart of this but we would ask you all to be ready to give as quick feedback as the consulta8on period may be quite short. Have a good year.

It was suggested that the event industry is actually very good at planning, so that should not be an issue for us, where we are weaker is in design, organisa8on and set responsibili8es. Apparently we are only seen as high risk with regards to work at height. It is noted that more accidents happen on small to medium sized sites rather than more organised larger sites. The venue becomes a contractor where they are providing services. The HSE is of the opinion that a lot of event accidents are due to fa8gue (which is fair comment).

Problems are likely to occur in figuring out who is the client and who are the designers. It is going to be difficult to fit dynamic design into the structure of the CDM regula8ons and it could also be difficult to allocate responsibili8es.





NOEA YEARBOOK 2014 Campaign Objec3ves

Britain for Events is the UK event industry’s most inclusive selfpromo8onal campaign. The ini8a8ve is tasked with represen8ng the full spectrum of the events industry including; conference, exhibi8ons and business events; fes8vals, live, outdoor, spor8ng and cultural events; and incen8ve travel, training and corporate travel events.

It is an externally facing ini8a8ve targeted towards businesses, consumers and government to encourage the growth and development of the UK events industry. This year the campaign’s objec8ves remain to build on the inroads made last year and con8nue to make the UK a compe88ve interna8onal industry; to be the official ‘flag waver’ for the industry and to underline its value to business, government and the wider event going public.

To increase the interna8onal compe88veness of the UK events industry, Britain for Events aims… • To be a voice of the UK events industry • To promote the value and volume of the UK events industry • To promote the value of face to face communica8on • To nego8ate more favourable opera8ng environments of businesses within the mee8ngs and events industry

Ac3ons and Ac3vity during Current Year

The campaign has received even greater backing, once again from Prime Minister David Cameron, but also from Hugh Robertson former Minister for Sport, Tourism and the Olympic Legacy, and Lord Sebas8an Coe former Chair of the London Organising Commi9ee for the Olympic Games.

NOEA YEARBOOK 2014 Britain for Events has acted as secretariat for the first ever All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) inquiry into the compe88veness of the UK events industry, the findings of which will be announced in the autumn 2013.

Britain for Events and Interna8onal Confex were asked to assist in the inquiry by ac8ng as its secretariat on behalf of the industry, a vital role in making it happen at all. The campaign has been instrumental in providing background informa8on and reference for the inquiry, briefing MP’s, and providing administra8on support and assistance to the inquiry Chair Nick de Bois MP.

Britain for Events and Interna8onal Confex will also provide a briefing event for the Inquiry where its findings will be presented to the industry. This will form a major part of our annual ‘launch’ event and a chance to shine a light on our industry. Direct responsibili8es and ‘Ac8on Plan’ from the inquiry will form much of the ac8vity from Britain for Events for both 2013 and 2014. Looking forward it will be the role of Britain for Events to put pressure on recommenda8ons taken from the inquiry, to be implemented.

Equally, through our own rela8onship with IMEX we are taking the ‘Declara8on of Support’ ini8a8ve forward and into the UK market to encourage senior government ministers to sign up and support the industry. The ‘Declara8on of Support’ highlights the characteris8cs of the sector as a major driver of growth and development in the world economy where it creates jobs, increases trade, a9racts inward investment, spreads knowledge, enhances innova8on and regenera8on, nurtures community cohesion and enriches the visitor economy whilst shaping des8na8ons. Turning away from the governmental agenda, Britain for Events has recently formed produc8ve partnerships with UK Sport, UK Music and the Fes8val Organisers Associa8on to give further representa8on to this side of the events industry. These rela8onships will be instrumental in represen8ng the ‘live’ sector of the events industry and joining closer rela8onships between live and business events. Britain for Events joined forces with the Interna8onal Special Events Society (ISES) to host the E20 (May 13), which saw 20 major des8na8ons and venues discuss the growing role of crea8vity in the export of UK events and will be taking the ac8on points forward to promote the UK’s crea8vity in business.


One of the aspects the industry asked the campaign to look at was its role in suppor8ng the next genera8on of event organisers. This year we have therefore launched


B4E Genera8ons, part of the campaign’s commitment to educate students in understanding the wider industry they are entering into. Already this has led to representa8ves from the campaign speaking at Her7ord and Queen Margaret University’s and future engagements with Bournemouth and Westminster Universi8es. Alex Stronghill

Police Charging at Events

Sorry to harp on about this for the second year in succession but every event organiser I talk to these days seems to have issues over police charging. As a quick reminder, in England and Wales (Scotland and Northern Ireland are different), the posi8on is governed by sec8on 25 of the Police Act 1996 which asserts: “The Chief Officer of police of a police force may provide, at the request of any person, special police services at any premises or in any locality in the police area for which the force is maintained, subject to the payment to the local policing body of charges on such scales as may be determined by that body”.

This apparently simple paragraph is in fact a legal minefield but not quite for the reasons many people suppose. They tend to moan about “full cost recovery” but what they mean is that the police demand payment for all policing costs associated with an event. In fact, if one is talking about “special police services” (“SPS”) it is well established that the police are en8tled to charge for their services at a full cost recovery rate. How one works out that rate is the subject of a publica8on by the Associa8on of Chief Police Officers (“ACPO”) called “ACPO & the Associa8on of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCCs) Guidelines on Charging for Police Services” and the hourly or daily rates charged will vary from force to force. The Guidelines also makes it clear that certain types of events should be charged at a lesser rate (or even nothing). This is all fair and good but unfortunately it completely misses the point. The Police are ONLY en8tled to charge for SPS and NOT for core policing. It is also the case that they are only en8tled to charge if someone has requested SPS and the police have acceded to that request. It follows that the police are NOT currently en8tled to automa8cally charge for all policing costs associated with an event. In some cases (e.g. demonstra8ons and counter demonstra8ons) it is a prac8cal impossibility for the Bill to send their bill to anyone at all.

Ma9ers are further complicated by a number of cases – for example one rela8ng to Leeds Football Club held that the police were only en8tled to charge for policemen deployed within the “event footprint” and not on public

land that was not owned or under the control of the football club. Of course if you ask the police to (for example) provide traffic management as an SPS, they are perfectly en8tled to send you a bill for that, even though the service they are providing is a service provided outside the event footprint. Part of the problem is that different police officers (some8mes even officers from the same force) have very different views about the en8re concept of policing events. Some are working hard to move towards events that are “police free” – others seem to want to swamp every event, including those that are intended to be family friendly, with public order trained officers (the boys and girls in riot gear). The standard “tac8c” in such circumstances is to “advise” the event organisers that if they don’t agree to pay for whatever level of policing the police think is appropriate, they’ll object to the licence and stop the event from going ahead. The point here is that some events don’t need a licence at all but even if they do, the police may well be hard pushed to jus8fy either objec8ng to a licence applica8on or seeking a review of an exis8ng licence. Nevertheless, the implied threat o'en works, much to the cost and detriment of the event organisers and, dare one say it, the event goers – policing costs are inevitably passed on in 8cket prices etc.

The industry is beginning to get wise to all of this and in the last year, several events have succeeded in reducing policing costs by introducing more detailed security, stewarding and traffic management plans and some8mes by just standing firm and saying “No.” However, my firm view is that nego8a8on is the best way to proceed, difficult though that may be on occasions, depending on the individual police officer concerned. There is however another threat on the horizon. Some sec8ons of the police, apparently supported by the Home Office, are looking to change the law to overcome the specific issue that arose in the Leeds United case (which cost the police about £1M a year!). Whilst it is clear that football is the intended target, there is a real danger that any change in the law allowing the police to recover all of their costs will impact on the events industry.

A consulta8on is expected around Easter with a dra' Bill later in the year. NOEA will be monitoring the situa8on closely and if necessary, making comment and lobbying to try and ensure that the event industry as a whole doesn’t suffer because of the mindless behaviour or a minority of football hooligans.

Raising awareness of the professional role of event manager and suppor8ng individuals to achieve professional recogni8on, con8nue their professional development and benefit from its body of knowledge. The Ins8tute of Event Management has been established to provide an opportunity for individuals who already work or wish to work in the Events Sector to gain professional recogni8on, and to enhance their profile, skills and knowledge.

The aim is for the Ins8tute to provide a route to professional development, accredita8on of courses and a body of knowledge. It will seek to champion professional recogni8on and raise awareness of the role of event professionals.

The Ins8tute will support employers in providing real-8me informa8on and resources together with appropriate con8nuing professional development programmes to meet their needs. The Ins8tute will also provide a forum for the provision of fresh ideas and informa8on together with opportuni8es for debate and discussion. The Ins8tute has been cons8tuted as a “not for profit” company limited by guarantee. It has been working

throughout 2013 with People 1st to review the Na8onal Occupa8onal Standards (NOS) in order to develop a number of NOS that can be subsequently pulled together into a framework of qualifica8ons to which all trainers and providers can work. Na8onal Occupa8onal Standards (NOS) are not qualifica8ons of themselves, they describe what an individual needs to do, know, and understand in order to carry out a par8cular job or func8on. The key purpose of an event manager is to: “create and deliver opportuni8es for people to par8cipate in an event to meet audience and stakeholder needs to achieve, economic, professional, environmental or social objec8ves.” The Key Roles under which each of the NOS sit have been iden8fied as to: A. Manage commercial aspects of an event B. Manage the design and crea8vity of an event C. Manage the marke8ng and sales of an event D. Manage the opera8ons of an event E. Evaluate an event F. Manage informa8on G. Manage resources

Na8onal Occupa8onal Standards are a free resource for employers to create their own training programmes. The Ins8tute will be launched early in 2014. Susan Spibey
