We are a pretty social bunch in the Events Industry so it’s been tough all round not seeing our colleagues, our partners, our suppliers and of course our clients.
We’d normally meet up at exhibitions, shows and sales trips throughout the year, catch up on news from our destinations, talk about new projects and perhaps enjoy a glass or two of fizz! Whilst many of our destinations are now opening up, not all of us can travel yet so we thought, if we can’t meet in person then we can at least meet virtually and thus the Wedgewood MICE/TIME Continuum was born.
Over two days eleven Wedgewood offices had one-to-one meetings with valued partners from South America, the USA, Africa, Europe and Asia. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet some new faces too.
Each day culminated in an entertainment event with “Wedgewood’s Got Talent” on Day 1 and a fabulous “Lip Sync Battle” in cooperation with Song Division on Day 2. These were both great interactive experiences and let’s just say we saw a whole new side to some of our colleagues! Who knew we had such musical talent in our midst? Well done to all the brave performers and special congratulations to the Rus Spice Girls!
Whilst nothing can beat seeing each other in person we were really happy with our first Virtual event and whether we are online or on the spot we hope we’ve shown that nothing (not even a pandemic) can stop our innovation and creativity.
