June 2019: Event management & tender wins

Blog | Onsite Event Management

Exhibiting, site inspections, event management, tender wins & delegate management have been keeping Team ZiaBia very busy during June!

Event Management

We kick-started the first week of June with the team being out delivering onsite event management for two different events.

The first for one of our Energy clients who was holding a hosted buyer visit.  This involved transfers to a partner of the client for a guided tour, a group dinner at an off-site location and overnight accommodation. Day two then saw return transfers to the client offices for another guided tour, which provided an opportunity to showcase the facilities and build relationships.

Customer Engagement Event in Bristol

The second event was also a customer event for Blackstar Solutions, who are based in Bristol. Blackstar Solutions booked ‘We the Curious’ as the venue and ZiaBia supported the management of all the sponsors attending the event – their requirements and communications with them. We also organised the production at the event with one of our local Partner production companies. The remit included the stage set, all badging for the event and ensuring logistics on the day all went smoothly.

It was great to see delegates from both events so engaged and the feedback received was tremendous. Both clients consequently have re-booked events with us for later in 2019 and into 2020, which we are very proud of.

Team Growth

We have grown the team this month as well with Paola Davis starting with us as a Project Manager. We are very excited to have Paola in the team along with the wealth of experience she brings with her.


The team all attended the Business Showcase South West event in Bristol. It was a brilliant day which saw lots of visitors to our stand. We had delicious cake and fudge provided by our client Taste of Bath that was very well received.  People that visited us also came away with some branded cups and notebooks. It was also great to attend the seminars that BSSW held. A very fruitful day all round.

Tender Win

We have been partnering with our Creative Partner Some Bright Spark on a tender for 2020 and we received the marvellous news this month that we were successful on winning the business. ZiaBia will be supporting with venue find and full event logistics as well as delegate management and on-site event management. We are looking forward to working with Some Bright Spark and building our relationships with them ahead of the event in Germany next year.

Site Inspections

The last week of the month has seen Vicky & Debbie travelling to Edinburgh for site inspections of both the Kimpton Charlotte Square and Principle George Street for an event taking place in September. They were greeting by the Great British Summertime Weather (bucket loads of rain) but that didn’t dampen the inspections. It’s always great to complete site inspections with the client and it helps to get the detail in place for the event and make some critical decisions which was all achieved on this visit. Never underestimate the power of a site inspection!

What a month! It has been a fantastic whirlwind of everything that we do and what makes ZiaBia a great partner to our clients. I think we need a quick cuppa to prepare with what July has in store for us!
