EN and esp recruitment have teamed up to run the Exhibition Industry Quiz Night, 15 July, to support the Lord’s Taverners charity.
Working with Blue Hat Teambuilding and Aztec, the quiz aims to offer some light relief to an industry facing vast uncertainty in the face of Covid-19.
The quiz, which starts at 7.30pm and will last for 90 minutes, will be streamed live from Aztec’s studio via Zoom and teams will be quizzed on multiple subjects created by esp’s Liz Sinclair, with some special guests delivering selected questions.
Blue Hat Teambuilding will provide the tech for teams to be able to deliver their answers.
Teams should include up to five staff members from any one company, and a company can enter as many teams as they like.
One member from each team must download an app to input answers.
The quiz will aim to raise money for the Lord’s Taverners, and teams are encouraged to make donations here: http://www.justgiving.com/ExhibitionIndustryQuizNight
A spokesperson for the Lord’s Taverners said: “Many of us have experienced isolation and loneliness over the past few months and recognise first-hand how challenging this can be.
“Unfortunately, for many of the young people on our programmes, isolation and loneliness are feelings that are very commonly experienced in their lives, with disabled young people twice as likely to experience feelings of loneliness as their peers.
“Our programmes help tackle feelings of isolation and loneliness by providing new opportunities for our disabled and disadvantaged participants to meet new friends, socially engage and develop a wide range of personal skills.
“Since the outbreak of Covid-19, the Lord’s Taverners programmes have halted, denying many vulnerable participants the opportunity to regularly interact with friends and play sport. At this time, we know there is an increased risk of feelings of isolation and loneliness for our participants.”
EN’s publishing director, Duncan Siegle, noted it was important for the industry to come together for some light entertainment, as 2020’s Sticky Wicket cricket competition, which raises money for the Lord’s Taverners, could not go ahead. “It is a shame we couldn’t run Sticky Wicket this year,” said Siegle. “The Lord’s Taverners does some incredible work, and have been hit hard by Covid-19, much like the exhibitions industry. I am hoping as many exhibition organisers and suppliers get involved. We think we know who the smart ones are, but we will have to see who wins the quiz to be sure. Get involved, and let us do our bit.”
