Search for UK's best events companies begins

The search for the event industry’s top 50 companies to work for has begun, with entries to the ‘Fab 50’ competition now being taken.

That’s according to a report from Event, which runs the competition. It is designed to weed out the best the industry has to offer in terms of staff experience; judged by the comments provided by the workforce behind each entry.

Professionals from across the marketplace – be it staff of function venues or those responsible for event venues’ branding – can take part, as long as they submit their entry by May 25th. confirmed: ‘The Fab 50 is open to every company working within the event industry.

‘This could include in-house brand teams, agencies, suppliers and venues,’ it added. ‘To ensure your company is in with a chance of making it into the top 50, all you have to do is get a minimum of five members of staff to complete a number of statements…’

The survey, published on, covers everything from job satisfaction levels to internal communication; with a few questions on senior management quality and training thrown in for good measure. Respondents will also be asked to rate how welcoming their company is for new staff members, in addition to what they believe helps it to stand out within the industry.
