Be content with your event content

Be content, with your event content   Last week, we attended EventLab 2018 at the Barbican Conservatory in London, and a few sessions on content really got us thinking. Content is fundamental to delivering a fantastic live event, but we all know it takes time, thought and plenty of creativity to compile a truly compelling show. We’ve put together a few points to consider when developing...

What Makes a Good Christmas in July Press Show?

by Admin | Jul 20, 2018 | Events | 0 Comments

  For those in the know, Christmas starts in July. This may sound crazy but it’s the best way for brands to showcase their Christmas products to journalists and industry influencers in time to be included in long lead titles for Christmas and generate PR about their Christmas lines. Throughout the first two weeks of July, journalists are busy traveling from venue to venue to taste and sa...

I have many fond memories, each year, that give me a sense of pride working at Sledge. 2018 was no different, with lots of exciting, new challenges to take on. My favourite moment of 2018 has to be shooting the content for HPE Inspire, an event that recently won Highly Commended at the Drum Experience Awards. We wanted to bring some fun and humour to the two-day sales conference, making sure we w...

Working at Sledge, I’ve been lucky enough to work on some really great events, but a particular favourite of mine was in February of this year.Myself and the team hopped on a flight to Miami to produce two back to back conferences for a long standing client of Sledge, and it was the best experience I’ve had so far.

'12 Sledge Stories Before Christmas' - Becca

I don’t really know where to start with 2018. It’s been a whirlwind of a year having had my first baby at the end of 2017. Coming back to work from maternity leave and picking up where I left off has left me being very busy. Of course, there are plenty of personal highlights from 2018 but, being part of the Sledge family, I was excited to come back to work and catch up with the team and find...

If like us, you saw the Fyre Festival documentary on Netflix this weekend recounting the lies, failings and false advertising of a luxury event experience, it’ll have been a hot topic of discussion in your office this week. No one can forget the carnage that ensued following the catastrophic failings of the festival organisers in 2017, and we all smiled wryly at the ironic role social media play...

The Winning Formula of Glastonbury Festival

by Gemma | Jul 12, 2019 | Events | 0 Comments

We’ve either heard of it and are an avid fan, have it on our bucket list, or want to avoid it like the plague – but why do so many people flock back to Glastonbury year on year? The blood pressure starts to rise from the moment the tickets are released – you’re surrounded by your 10 different devices, nervously watching each of them and hoping that you’ve been good enough throughout the...

Destinations Accepting Diversity

by Gemma | Jul 04, 2019 | Events | 0 Comments

With London Pride around the corner we’ve been thinking about the acceptance of diversity and how some locations are much more advanced in their progress than others. The world is becoming a smaller place, allowing more access than ever before to foreign destinations, creating less availability for those looking for that unique adventure. A recent example of this being the traumatising experien...
