Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has announced details of its Summer Event, which includes the return of the In the Rough ESSA industry charity golf day, dinner and awards.
The ESSA Summer Event will take place on 13-14 July at The Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Coventry. The first day is open to ESSA members only and includes the ESSA AGM followed by an afternoon and evening of activities.
ESSA members and their teams have been invited to enjoy networking before taking part in a three-legged race or a tug of war followed by a BBQ and prize-giving ceremony.
The second day will host ESSA’s industry charity golf day, In the Rough, which this year supports event industry mental health charity EventWell. The evening will include an industry dinner and awards presentation to celebrate teams who excelled on the course.
ESSA director Andrew Harrison said: “The return of an extended summer event is particularly special given we’ve not been able to get the wider industry together socially at this time of year for some time due to the most extraordinary of circumstances.
“A real sense of community spirit and camaraderie has come out of the last two years which has been a lifeline for so many, and events such as this are incredibly important to help preserve the longevity of such kinship as well as reenergise and strengthen the whole industry. There’s never been a more fitting and significant time to bring our membership and the wider industry back together for a fun-packed couple of days.”
