There are over 1.3 million business events held in the UK annually. Just under £40 billion was spent by those attending these events, and the segment generates more than £20.6 billion in gross value added (GVA) and £58.4 billion in gross domestic product (GDP). The direct spending associated with UK meeting organisers is £24.7 billion. Of this spend, £6.4 billion is funded by registration fees paid by delegates and attendees.
Yet these numbers don't cover small-scale events and conferences frequently organized by media and PR professionals, creative agencies, fashion businesses, technology startups, co-working spaces and more. Thus, the above figures are likely to be much, much higher.
But while the figures may be reassuring, event planners continue to face a barrage of problems. A lack of disruptive technological innovation in the industry is causing plenty of headaches for event planners, large and small.
These include, but are not limited to:
Human Error: miscalculation, forgetfulness, maintaining several spreadsheets which leads to typos.
Poor Time Management: managing several team members at ones, coordinating with multiple points of contact, last-minute changes.
Unclear Budgeting: lack of transparency in pricing,
No Streamlining: using multiple websites for simple tasks, clunky ordering
Lack of Efficiency: clunky ordering processes, unreliable technology.
Poor Communication: lack of 24/7 customer support.

'I ordered two high-velocity air fans for an exhibition opening at the gallery I work for. I was able to extend the rental period on the fans quickly and simply and everything went smoothly. Great and efficient service!'.
