Etihad event kick-starts event programme
What a relief! Finally, after a near 18 month gap we were able to stage a football & rugby networking event again.
Thanks to everyone who made August 5th a memorable day. Ticketing and CRM specialists NewC for sponsoring, the staff at the Etihad Stadium for making things run smoothly and for the near 100 delegates for taking the trouble to attend.
As a test, the day proved extremely useful with everyone still being COVID aware. There was plenty of space for social distancing and fresh air to keep the room well ventilated. Over two weeks have passed and we have not had any reported cases of COVID which is great news for us and the venue.
COVID is still very much with us, but we have been in discussion with venues for future events, and like the Etihad, they are comfortable about holding our events without being complacent.
The next event is a rugby & football Business day at Gloucester’s Kingsholm Stadium. Again we have a great sponsor in Landways. They specialise in integrated audio and Wi-Fi systems for large venues and are already partnered with Gloucester Rugby. Included on the day is a tour of the stadium to experience the systems in place there.
John Booth, Football and Rugby Trade Directory MD is looking forward to it.
‘The City event went really well given the past 18 months and the fact that people are still, rightly mindful of COVID. We are confident we have measure in place at Gloucester, as we did at the Etihad, to ensure risks are minimised.
‘I think we can all benefit from some face-to-face contacts, and we look forward to another good event.’
