JUNE 2017 – SCHOOL’S OUT at DSTRKT London

Thursday 29th June 17
18.30 – 21.30
It’s almost the end of another ILEA year and as we look forward to the next ILEA UK term, we are also looking forward to the new members we might welcome into our community! Our June event is our AGM and will act as an ‘open evening’ for anyone who has been considering joining the ILEA family for a while – with a chance to talk to our team and membership sign ups on the night benefiting from a discount on fees.
Given that term is almost over for current president Alistair Turner, we will be playing on the ‘School’s Out’ theme as we reflect on what we have achieved as a community over the past year and where we want to get to in 2017/18.
Camden Dining, the team behind iconic London venues such as Gilgamesh and Shaka Zulu, have recently launched a new dining experience within DSTRKT London – Yoshiaki – and we are delighted to be working with them at this unique venue for our June event.
We hope you can join us for an evening of networking and to discover one of London’s most talked about social hotspots. Book your place now!

Well Being for #EventProfs

imagesTuesday 18th April
18.30 – 21.30

April marks the beginning of a new financial year, a time where we review what’s going on inside our businesses and plan for the coming year. At ILEA UK we also think this could be the perfect month to review our own well-being and focus on how we can manage it moving forward. We all know this industry has a very delicate work life balance and sometimes this is the last thing on the minds of #EventProfs.

We will be talking with Hannah Luffman (Unicorn Events Ltd) and Mark Maher (Boulevard Events) about the ways in which we can maintain a state of well-being at the fantastic Park Village Studio. Patrick Moore Jones will also be joining us from #MyMojoMatters to take us through a well-being activity.

Of course, an ILEA event wouldn’t be complete without catering that’s on theme… so we’re delighted that our very own members, Boulevard Events, have taken up this challenge and will be delighting us with a selection of their food creations that fit the bill. To compliment this, Exquisite Cocktails are developing some healthy mocktails for the evening too.

More information to be released soon, but for now mark your diaries and book your place now!

March 2017 – Sustainability

barbican-centreMonday 27th March
6.30 – 9.30pm

So far this year, we at ILEA UK have explored storytelling, creativity, immersion, and held engaging forums with our audiences. This month we will focus on the thought processes that go on behind the scenes of our industry, specifically our responsibility regarding sustainability. How high on your priority list is it?

Hosted by the fantastic Barbican Centre, we will provide an insightful presentation from Selina Donald (The Bulb) and Sam Wilson (Eco Events), and a networking session on the topic of sustainability. We hope the evening will leave you with a revived sense of how we can all be implementing more sustainability friendly tactics in our businesses and events.

To deep dive further into the learnings following Selina’s presentations, we will split guests into mixed groups (venues, suppliers, planners, etc..) and partner them with the ‘Sustainability Pros’ to generate ideas and a focus on sustainability that you can take away from the evening back to the rest of your team. Viva Live Music will be on site with some of their fantastic talent, Searcy’s will provide their outstanding catering for the evening, and the team from Present Communications will be on hand to capture it all! Get your tickets now!

Tuesday 31st January
6.30 – 9.30pm

We’re delighted to be able to kick off the New Year in collaboration with Late Night London. Join us on Tuesday 31st from 6.30pm at Sway Bar!

The glamorous venue conveniently located between Holborn and Covent Garden will play host to our first networking event of 2017 – a great way to start the year and refocus on how we can work (individually and together) to continually evolve and improve our sector.

So far, we’ve looked at the main factors that can create inspiration at events, but how about the people and the industries that are leading the world of experience forward … we are excited to be at Sway Bar and, in true ILEA fashion, we will be steering away from the common January themes of predicting event trends. Instead we’ll be asking three of the most influential minds in our industry what they think events SHOULD look like as the sector stands right here, right now.

We will be showcasing Sway’s Cocktail Room and offering you access to an esteemed panel – the top most influential people as voted for in Event Magazine’s #Event100. Jonathan Emmins (founder of Amplify), Michael Wyrley-Birch (COO of TRO EMEA), with our chairman for the evening Simon Burton (MD and Owner of Exposure Communications).

Music trio, The Wanderers will be playing their fun, spontaneous, soulful and completely acoustic interpretations of soul classics from the golden era of Atlantic, Stax and Motown – courtesy of Stormont London.

Happy hour drinks and nibbles will be provided courtesy of Sway Bar and Late Night London, and the whole evening will be captured by Leo Wilkinson Photography.

Sign up for your place here and hold the date in your diaries! We look forward to seeing you at Sway Bar later this month!
