What makes an award winning show?

The Association of Event Organisers share the secrets of champions...

Understand your audience
Understanding what makes your audience tick is vital to the success of your event. Your flagship customers should know what excites and interests the end user, that’s why they’re a successful business who can afford to invest in event after event. The important thing for you is that they choose your event over a competitor one or, even worse, take themselves off to hold their own “customer event.”

Craft coffee
Gone are the days where a cup of coffee was solely used as a jolt of energy to get you through the day. Coffee is now commonly viewed as an experience, where people can learn about what’s in their cup, engaging consumers in the story of their drink. It’s about relationships, with coffee farmers, roasters and baristas all involved in the process. Make sure you buy new season harvests, ensuring that the coffee really is as fresh as possible.
