  • We love sustainability

    Our newest member of staff, Andrew Batten has recently shared the below story about a small tree that he had recieved from the ABPCO awards. 

    “It’s been over a month since ABPCO held its virtual Excellence Awards, I hope everyone enjoyed their virtual event packages. I can’t believe it’s been over a year ago since the ABPCO Chairmen’s Lunch and Excellence Awards at the ICC Wales.

    You may remember how great the event was, and that sustainability was the main focus. Thank you again to Heather Lishman and everyone else involved.

    To the ABPCO members who attended, you might remember the fantastic gifts we received, one of which was a small tree to be planted at home.

    I have some pictures of mine and would like to share this space and encourage you to post pictures of yours ….. if you still have it.

    Looking at this, the younger tree on the left from Jan 2020, actually looks healthier than the older tree Jan 2021 ….. maybe you could say a tough COVID year experienced by the tree also.

    Over all, I think this shows a true reflection of resilience in the face of adversity and is a perfect analogy of our own ability to keep growing and moving forwards even when times are hard.

    Looking forward to seeing how 2021 develops and how the MICE industry transforms through these changing times.”

    If you planted your tree after this event like Andy, please let us know by sending or sharing your images with us on social media! We would love to see how they have turned out.

  • 2021 – Events are here to stay!

    With the Coronavirus vaccines now being rolled out up and down the country, we can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel!

    Whilst our incredible UK Events Industry have been waiting patiently to be given the go ahead for face to face meetings, we at Nexus Collections have seen some fantastic and innovative virtual events which have helped to keep the Conference Industry alive!

    Sponsorship revenue

    Over the past few months, Nexus has seen an increase in enquiries for printed bags, promotional products and delegate packs for various virtual events which are happening this year.

    Virtual events have supported the conference industry throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and have ensured that networking, education, new business opportunities and sponsored brand awareness could still continue.

    Nexus have created a diverse range of pre-packed boxes containing various conference items such as delegate information, promotional bags, delegate gifts and branded items which have been delivered directly to UK and European delegates in time for their event. This has meant that virtual events can still generate much needed revenue from selling sponsorship and raising branding awareness.

    If you need help with your next virtual event, please get in touch with us today!

    Face to face meetings

    We are so looking forward to a time where face to face meetings can begin once more and although we will need to make some changes, the buzz of the conference hall feels so much closer now than in February 2020!

    We can expect to see changes to the way face to face events are run such as, mandatory face coverings, social distancing measures, PPE stations and the all important hand shake being converted into an elbow bump.

    This will soon become the new normal and by working together, we can grow our industry back into the economic goldmine it once was!

  • Top tips for working from home

    As we start 2021 in another national lockdown, most of us will find ourselves working from home (again!) which can be extremely challenging.

    Thankfully, there are some simple things that we can do to keep us motivated and positive during this difficult time……

    LISTS

    Start your day right with a list of ‘to do’s’ and as each one is complete, tick them off! This will help give structure and efficiency to your day and keep you feeling on top of your workload.

    The satisfaction when you accomplish your list (even if it is just making a sandwich and getting through a zoom meeting) is a real positive step and will keep you motivated.

    COMMUNICATE

    Sitting at your desk on your own all day can be lonely and draining, so it is important to make time to communicate with others.

    Why not set up a group chat on WhatsApp or ask your colleagues, friends and family to have a catch up over Zoom?

    We are so lucky that we have all these different platforms to stay in contact with people so make sure you use them daily!

    EXERCISE

    The government guidelines state that we can get out once a day to exercise with one other person so take advantage of this when you can whether it be an early morning run, a lunch time walk or an early evening bike ride.

    Just 20 minutes of exercise each day is proven to make us feel better and the fresh air will help to revitalise and recharge your batteries!

    Participation in regular physical activity can increase our self-esteem[11] and can reduce stress and anxiety.[12] It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems[13] and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems.[14]Mental Health Foundation

    REGULAR BREAKS

    Take regular 5-minute breaks from work to refresh your mind and refocus.

    Make yourself that well deserved cuppa that you have been thinking about all day or run the hoover around for a few minutes to your favourite tune to get another job ticked off your list and take a well needed break from work.

    STOP SCROLLING

    Whilst working at home, it is easy to get distracted and check up on what everyone else in the world is up to on our socials.

    We must be mindful that everyone is coping with COVID-19 as best they can and we are all in different situations. Some people may be working more, less, or not at all, but we shouldn’t let that effect how we feel. So, try and stay off those popular social media platforms during the working day and keep focusing on your positives!

    We have done this before, and we will do it again so let us stay positive, stay safe and we will all get through this together!

    Take care,
    The Nexus Collections Team

    If you need to speak to any one during this time, there are various helplines which can offer support.
