On Tuesday 29 November event professional, Dan Assor will lead and host an 11-hour virtual event, raising essential funds for three event industry charities: EventWell, MAKEITBLUE, and Meeting Needs.
Over a 11-hour period, running from 8am to 7pm (GMT), different companies and individuals from across the event industry will run a mixture of fun and informative sessions on the hour every hour, to raise awareness and donations through creative and imaginative approaches.
“Mental health-related illness affects one in three event professionals every year. Mental health services are seeing unprecedented demand and the impact of the cost-of-living crisis is wide-reaching – many people are having to decide whether to heat their homes or buy food, and many are increasingly uncertain whether they will be able to pay their mortgage or rent,” Assor said.
“This can all have a devastating effect on health and well-being, resulting in mental decline and distress. Every donation goes towards helping individuals who are experiencing personal and financial hardship. This event will make a real difference to real people, our event people.”
Participating companies and individuals include: Lizzie Williamson, “The excuse buster from down under”, Doug Emslie, CEO Tarsus Group, Event Mender, Business Design Centre, FFAIR, Gleanin, Lineup Ninja, Clear Path Analysis, Karen Perea of Shocklogic, Gordon Glenister – influencer marketing consultant, University of East London, Mark Allen Group, Expo Stars & Nineteen Group.
The event will be streamed live on Just Giving, as well as live across Dan Assor’s YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn pages for people to enjoy, engage with and donate.
