Scott Birch visited Insomnia50 – the Glastonbury of gaming – and found a vibrant event serving a passionate community.

Here is a fascinating social dynamic. How does an isolated community – by its nature virtual and unreal – interact when it gets face to face? That’s what took me to Telford, to catch up with the gaming show Insomnia and organisers Multiplay.

We look at how four venues are taking measures to go greener.

The UK events industry took a key role on sustainable management practices when it launched the British Standard 8901 in late 2007. Prompted by the London Olympics and the Government’s push to be seen as environmental and cultural leaders, BS 8901 was designed to give organisers, venues and suppliers a means of delivering events more sustainably through management strategies, evaluation, reporting, communication and training.

CEVA Showfreight won EN’s Best Supplier to Exhibitors Award for the second year running in 2013. We caught up with the firm’s MD Sharon Robinson to see how she and the company have grown together.

There is no doubt that recent years have provided challenges to contractors across the events industry due to the financial downturn, but looking back over the last 12 months, exhibition logistics company CEVA Showfreight has a more optimistic view.

Messe Berlin won Best International Venue at last year’s Exhibition News Awards. We caught up with the team who are making big strides overseas with new infrastructure in the pipeline.

Berlin is pure dynamism,” stated Messe Berlin’s former CEO Raimund Horsch, and current CEO Christian Göke in the venue’s brochure. “Berlin is entertainment at all hours. Berlin is good for global business.”

With International Confex moving back across the capital to its ‘spiritual’ west London home we look at the key considerations for an organiser when deciding to move a show.

The idea of moving a show would probably appear at the bottom of Page 1, or at worse the top of Page 2 in the book of “How To Be An Exhibition Organiser”.

With major sporting events and landmark referendums on the horizon, not to mention the opening of The Hydro venue, Glasgow’s SECC faces a watershed 2014. Scott Birch reports.

Next year is going to be a landmark one for Scotland. Not only will the country be thrown into the sporting spotlight as host to the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup. On top of that, there is the potentially highly significant independence referendum that will see Scots vote for the right to be a state separate from the UK.
