Well what a week it’s been, definitely one where events have been at the forefront of the public’s collective mind.

Most importantly, our editor attended the National Television Awards (NTAs) on Wednesday night, witnessing first-hand to the hard work that goes into producing and broadcasting this live event. Good news came from The 02, the event venue, shortly after as it announced that it will be hosting the ninth edition of the awards in 2018 as well.

Other news from the event venue sector is emerging too, as The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre has announced its rebrand to the Scottish Event Campus. Due to the high volume of live entertainment events, the venue team feels the rebrand will represent it better. They also sent us a nifty little mug (pictured above) to let us know.

Lastly, it’s always nice to know the event industry is making waves at home and abroad. Medio 10, the event agency, announced that the Best of British, a deluxe event showcasing British consumables including food, drink, fashion, design and culture will take place in the SEC Shanghai in October.

Have a lovely weekend #eventprofs
