Why do we love Events?

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for us working on Diamonds and Deals Women In Business event, so we wanted to take a minute to think about why we love events and share it with you.

Since Starting GEM MEDIA’s sister company GEM MEDIA Events, we have hosted networking events, fashion shows, comedy nights, dinner parties, children parties and more. We have a real passion for events which stemmed from Gemma’s background as an Events Manager in MK’s biggest nightclub Wonderworld. A venue with a capacity of 1800 people that hosted up to 3 events per week.

The #1 reason why we love Events is because we make it happen!

Seeing an event come together from start to finish, after months of planning has got to be one of the most exciting (and scary) aspects of working in the events industry.

For those who do not work in Events, let us tell you that we certainly do not open the doors for guests and everything magically appears. There is a LOT of planning involved with an event, things that often go unnoticed, such as:

- Finding a venue

- Sourcing a Live PA System/ DJ

- Booking entertainment

- Choosing reception drinks & canapés / food

The initial planning can be considered as the dull tasks, however it enables us to connect with people who are also as passionate for events as we are. Together, we make it happen!

The #2 reason why we love Events is because the talent that we come across is phenomenal.

We are lucky to have worked with a variety of talented people from:

-Make-up artists

-Singers

-Presenters

-Models

-Comedians

-Live Musicians

-Dancers
