The UK’s Association of Event Venues (AEV) has published the 2023 edition of its eGuide, a key resource for compliance and standards in events. The updated guide encompasses a wide range of topics related to event operation and management including fresh information on customs and excise, security and lifting operations, accessibility and work equipment.
Siân Richards (pictured), the chair of the eGuide working group and head of sustainability at Olympia London said: “The 2023 edition of the eGuide continues to be an invaluable source of best practice for our customers and partners in the industry while working in any of the UK’s adoptee venues.”
Rachel Parker, AEV director, welcomed the publication of the 2023 eGuide: “This is proof of what can be achieved when we work collaboratively. Members from all three UK associations (AEO, AEV and ESSA) have worked diligently to revise the eGuide ensuring it is up to date with the industry standards.”
In addition to the new release, AEV has announced a change in the eGuide working group leadership. Siân Richards now steps down as chair after six years and hands over to Michelle Baldwin, head of events, NEC Group.
Parker added: “Huge thanks go to Siân for her exceptional contribution to the association, not only as chair over the past six years, but since 2007 when the eGuide committee first started creating the resource. The AEV’s eGuide working group also has a subcommittee and Siân has shared her time and knowledge unreservedly.”
