EPIC Update 11/07/22
Updated: Jul 11
- The UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) with the Events Industry Forum (EIF) have released the guidance to help employers, employees, volunteers and the self-employed, and their customers and attendees, in the outdoor event industry in England understand how to work safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Not relevant to events in Scotland but if you run shows or provide services to events in England then you may find this informative.
See the guidance for outdoor events at the resource page on the link below:
- After our recent successful letter campaign to Scottish MPs in Westminster, of which there was some very positive feedback, we have put together a letter that you can send to your constituent MSP.
Simply copy the text (and feel free to change to your liking) and click the MSP finder and paste the content there. Good luck!
- Event Scotland have published the key findings from the recent survey into the impact of Scotlands event industry supply chain, which generated 315 responses from a wide range of businesses and organisations.
The survey underlined the breadth of organisations involved in the events supply chain with event organisers, production services and AV & technology companies providing the largest representation. The vast majority (96%) of respondents were from micro or small sized businesses and most rely significantly on the support of freelancers, 69% of respondents are self-employed, either as a sole trader or via a Ltd Company, and 89% indicated that their head office is based in Scotland. Many of these suppliers provide specialist skills that, once lost, are not easy to replace.
