Here at Endless, we figured it was more than time we talked about planning sustainable events. As an industry, it’s extremely important that we are involved in the discussion of topics that matter for the world. And it’s even more significant that we choose to look at the bigger picture and think globally. Both as human beings and event professionals, we must be aware that our actions have a certain impact in the world. And we also have the responsibility of trying to improve it through planning sustainable events! For resources, click here.
Let’s get those event ideas muscles working, shall we? To all the nay-sayers, and all the non-believers out there, take note! Because today’s episode of #EventIcons is all about keeping it weird and making it awesome in the process. We’re exploring the amazing things that can come out of thinking outside the box, growing, and constantly learning in our industry. And while we know change can be scary, it tends to be for the best. Nothing can provide an extra kick to your event ideas quite like keeping it just a little weird…and you’re about to find out how. For resource, click here.

Hackathons for events might sound a bit strange at first. Even the most creative and out of the box event planners out there can frown at the thought of it. But the truth is, as professionals of the industry, it’s our job to consistently push forward in the idea department. And especially when it comes to the ideas that ensure the attendee experience goes from good to amazing. This is exactly where hackathons for events come in!For resources and additional info, click here.
Life on the road for event planners can be quite the hassle. Just ask our phenomenal hosts Brandt Krueger and Lindsay Martin-Bilbrey! The two have been on the road since early May, and boy, do they have a lot to share! Anyone who works in the event industry knows that traveling is an inevitable part of the job description. And even if you are more of the stay at home type, if you want in, you have to learn how to adapt. Living off of a suitcase isn’t exactly glamorous, but it can be rather fun. Plus, there is always something to learn with each new trip, and with each new event. For resources and more info, head to the blog!

Today we’re tackling luxury experiences and events all the way from…a luxury location! This week’s #EventIcons looks even better than usual, coming directly from The Resort at Pelican Hill. This wonderful place is the epitome of the word lavish. Surrounded by the most beautiful views, imposing villas, and quite a bit to teach when it comes to luxury experiences and events.
Today on a more serious note, we’re talking about physical safety and security at events. This is one of the most important topics to cover, and especially nowadays. There’s always so much to think about when you’re playing an event, right? It’s a rollercoaster, it seems like everything might go wrong, and there’s not enough room space in your brain to worry about every single detail. But there’s one thing that event planners must always keep in mind! And that’s exactly the safety of their attendees.
You might be wondering just exactly what this means. What does security at events entail? Sounds like a broad enough topic, and also a very costly thing. But if you know what to expect, and what the best practices are, you’re good. From that point on, you’re ready to put together an event that won’t just be successful, it’ll be safe and secure!
