  • Prepping for the Return of Events

    We know it’s hard to comprehend life going back to normal and networking at events seems like a distant memory but eventually things will things will be back up and running, maybe slightly different to what we’re used to, and we’re here to help you get prepared and plan effectively for your future events.

    Keep going!

    We totally understand that life has essentially been put on pause and we are still uncertain when large gatherings will be happening again, but it is important to remember to stay on top of your planning!

    Make the most of the time you have and get in touch with key customers, suppliers, stakeholders and designers to let them know your ideas and plans and get the ball rolling if you can.

    The way we planned events before will have to change as we will now have many more factors to consider to ensure the safety of your delegates and others.

    Location, Location, Location.

    Where you hold your conference is so important and plays a huge part in the success of your event but with some venues being closed at the moment, this may be challenging. However, there are other options to consider…

    Could you hold an outdoor event instead? We know that some have started to hold outdoor events such as outdoor cinema nights and drive in festivals. Would this work?

    Think about your location wisely and have contingency plans if the direction of lifting lockdown doesn’t go how you expected. Consider technology when looking at the location, would it be an option to also live stream the event as some may not be able to attend? Think of new and exciting ways to engage with your audience in a way that they certainly won’t forget.

    Even if you decide to hold a virtual conference with online seminars and meetings, you can still make this a great experience for everyone by sending out personalised packages with some branded goodies before or after the event so your delegates still feel very much involved.

    Key Speakers and Topics

    Plan your topics, reach out to your potential guest speakers, and decide what you may want to cover. This is the perfect opportunity to get in touch, reach out and secure the right people for your event.

    Promotional Products

    Now more than ever, it’s important to consider factors that you may have never considered before. Consider branded masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and other PPE that will help to keep you and your delegates safe.

    What measures will you be putting in place to make people feel safe? Will you provide any PPE? Where will you get this? Will there need to be any added security to help manage crowds?

    Now it is your time to talk to people and discuss what measures and safety precautions are needed.

  • Keep Your Delegates Safe

    As of the 1st of October 2020, events have been given the go-ahead to resume, providing that the infection rates remain at current levels. Following the announcement, best practice procedures are being put in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff. With the great news of the events being given the go-ahead, strict rules implemented will mean that the way events run will differ.

    The guidance given ensured by the measures below, will allow the safe return for both events and conferences;

    • Attendees will need to pre-book and pre-register to attend events
    • Contactless registration systems will be introduced at venues to reduce waiting times and limit contact between organisers and guests
    • Paper handouts and gifts will no longer be offered during the event
    • Entrance to event or conference spaces will be staggered to reduce queuing and overall capacity will be limited to ensure social distancing can be maintained
    • Events will be planned around one way systems for visitors
    • Spaces between exhibition booths will be increased and aisles widened to achieve social distancing requirements
    • All venues will also have enhanced cleaning procedures, with hand washing and sanitising facilities at frequent intervals.

    Here at Nexus Collections, we can arrange to send personalised packages directly to your delegates before the event date ensuring your customers are fully prepared before they arrive at the venue, helping to reduce queuing and waiting time.  We can also supply a range of customised banners and personalised floor markers to encourage your delegates and staff to keep social distancing in mind at all times.

    Generate sponsorship for your conference by offering logo branding on our new PPE range. Our products include reusable facemasks, antibacterial hand sanitisers, antibacterial soap and thermal scanners.  We also offer customised safety t-shirts for delegates and staff which can be personalised and/or branded with the UK Social Distance slogan to help keep them safe during the event.

    If you need any assistance or require further information on our range of products then please get in touch +44 (0) 3330200515 or email SALES@NEXUSCOLLECTIONS.COM.

  • The New Norm

    As restrictions are beginning to be lifted and things are slowly starting to get back to some sort of normal, it has us wondering, will our new altered lives become the new norm?

    There is an eager desire to get some type of normality back in our lives but are there things that we want to keep from our new way of living? And what do we want to get back from our old ways if we can?

    We can all agree lockdown has been extremely testing and challenging at times, whether that be personally, in business, or both. Self-reflection has never been so paramount and maybe you’ve realised you’re more of an introverted person than expected. Maybe you’ve realised that you actually work better isolated alone with no one to distract you? Have your habits changed? Sleeping routine? Exercise routine (especially after baking all those banana breads)?

    Even when it comes to socialising, have you been lucky enough to be in lockdown with family or friends? If so, have you liked it? Reality is, we’ve probably spent more time socialising (at a distance or on zoom) with the people we love, more than usual, because we have had the time to do so. Is this something that you’ve enjoyed? The one thing we’re all guilty of is ‘not having enough time’ – but these past few months have certainly eliminated that problem.

    Here at Nexus, we have had to change the way we work like all of us. We’ve all got used to the team calls via Zoom and are still going strong with hosting weekly catchup quizzes and drinks to still give us that ‘Friday Feeling’. We have also recently started meeting up for a walk once a week for a chance to see each other in person instead of through a computer or phone screen!

    One thing we will take out of this is how important its been to have each other as support, and we will continue to ensure that we still maintain these things going forward.

    Which leads us to the question, what is your new norm? What things will you be taking forward with you and what will you revert back to?

  • Running Remote Events

    Recent events have changed the way we work, think and ultimately live. Remote life has become the new norm, and everyone has had to learn to adapt to different changes in both their everyday lives and their working profession.

    Now that we all have had a few weeks to adapt and get our heads around this strange time, we should think positively and look at the opportunities. As time goes on and more rules are being lax, it’s a great time to plan and consider how we can maximise our time still at home.

    With social distancing measures still likely to remain a high priority for some time, we’re unsure when the attendance rates of physical gathering will start to pick up. On that, remote events may become the new way of business and it’s important to make sure you’re fully equipped to host the best virtual event possible.

    Connect with people

    Now is the perfect opportunity to reach out to people across the globe, never has it been easier to connect with all different time zones from the comfort of your own home. See this an opportunity to reach out to those who you might not regularly keep in contact with.

    Working with clients and customers across the world is extremely challenging, having to tackle culture barriers and time zones. The opportunity to stay in contact is perfect as the one thing most people have during this period, which they tend to lack is time. Remote events can bring a diverse pool of attendees, improving networking and collaboration that happens during the event.

    The quote “time is of the essence” is real – but now more than ever, people are willing to connect, learn and talk to each other. Don’t under-estimate the power of technology and real-time, it is still possible to have that personal interaction over video conferencing.

    A perfect time to attract the best speakers is now, no travel is involved, intense planning or commitment – just a couple of hours of prep and attendance for the event is needed. This makes it a lot easier for very busy people to say “yes”.

    Key planning tips

    Any event, big or small requires planning to make it as effective and efficient as possible, and that rule applies both for a physical event and remote.

    The key to a remote event is to keep people active and engaged. A key skill most people have is multi-tasking and it is very easy to get distracted when in the comfort of your own home. A recent study shows that the average adult only has an attention span of 8 seconds, making the content and engagement of the event crucial.

    Ways to keep your audience’s attention before, during and even after the event

    Before event;

    Send delegate packs before the event, this gives your attendees insight on the agenda, pre-reading and other key notes/instructions to prep if needed for the event. Try and stand out from the crowd and think about the impact sending some branded merchandise can be to help keep your audience interested in joining.

    Have a clear strategy in place before the event, key things to think about;

    • Will you require event registration?
    • When’s the best time for the event? (consider where your attendees are in the world)
    • Who is your target audience? – following from this, tailor your content based on this
    • What kind of an experience do you hope to have?
    • What KPI’s and other data do you want to collect and analyse?

    Make sure you troubleshoot – test your internet connection, prepare backups of visuals and presentations in case technology fails you. Most importantly, log on and have a practise run.

    During event;

    It may seem blindingly obvious, but tone of voice is imperative when having communication over video. The physical aspect of the event isn’t there, therefore having a diverse tone of voice is proven to show confidence and personality.

    Eliminating background distractions – when hosting an event, it’s important to remain professional, even from the comfort of your home. Make sure you’re sitting at a table, with preferably no dirty laundry in the background! A plain wall works well, the less distractions the better! Lighting should be light and bright, with the camera angle front on and clearly showing the full face.

    Have a clear plan of how the time will be used – prep, prep, prep! Make sure you also plan time for the introduction at the beginning and questions for the end.

    At the beginning of the event, briefly go through the agenda of the event, it will inform the attendees if they haven’t already read it and prepares them for what to expect throughout the event.

    After the event;

    At the end of the event, send them some personalised merchandise, this will keep your brand at the forefront of the attendee’s thoughts and it adds a personal touch.

    Concluding thought

    There’s no doubt about it, getting through the next coming months will be challenging whilst trying to maintaining some level of normality. Its apparent the world we live in has changed and we must adapt to this. Organise your events online, use the technology provided and turn this to a positive opportunity.

    Finally, good luck with hosting your online event – we hope it is a success! If you have any questions or interest in any of our products, please don’t hesitate to get into contact with us; SALES@NEXUSCOLLECTIONS.COM or 03330200515.
