It’s also vitally important that the events industry as a whole comes together with a proactive approach towards workplace wellbeing that equips professionals with the knowledge and skills to stay healthy and happy.

Our aim is to educate and advocate the wellbeing of event professionals centred on physical and mental health, diet and exercise, sleep, rest and recuperation, leadership and management support, team work, cohesion and positive workplace culture.
