Event Consultancy case studies

Over the last few years we have been lucky enough to spend time with some great organisations helping them with their events. Here are a couple of the organisations and a bit of detail about what our event consultancy covered.

The Institute of Engineering and Technology

The Institute of Engineering and Technology had completed a successful restructuring of their events business over a period of years by successfully redressing a decline in income. William was invited to do a strategic event analysis of the IET’s events to see how they could make the department more commercial.

Over five days William looked at the total offering to members, younger members and non members. He also looked at benchmarking prices, marketing and their on-line event strategy.

The European Wind Energy Association

The European Wind Energy Association is a very strong policy-led association which represents the benefit of increased use of wind energy. EWEA run two very large conferences and exhibitions in Europe. Despite the success of these events EWEA wanted to benchmark that success as they looked to future proof their events.

Over two days Gallus Events, calling upon our long list of contacts, were able to benchmark (including financial and resource details) their events against similar exhibitions run by two European Federations. Gallus Events also suggested which new events could be added in the future as well as recommending ways in which the value proposition could be enhanced.

Other event consultancy case studies are available on request.

We now have a new model for future events and demonstrated an ability to engage with our members in new and exciting ways. This was only achievable by working with William's team at Gallus Events.

After many years of delivering a routine annual conference format, the BDA decided a complete review of its leading event was required. The feedback has been immensely positive and other associations are now asking us how we did what we did. This shows we have delivered something truly innovative and ground breaking, something we are very proud of.

"We wanted to create a dynamic, creative and innovative event that delivered top quality content. We wouldn't have been able to deliver this type of event without the support and direction from Gallus Events. I must say that working alongside their team I learned a tremendous amount”

"Gallus Events detailed consultancy hit the nail on the head. By adopting their planned and strategic approach to the content, for all of our seven shows, the educational programme will play an important role in increasing the number of visitors and hosted buyers to our shows. It will also play a role in recruiting, recapturing and retaining exhibitors."

“I had an brainstorm with William about the meeting design of an international conference. In a very relaxed way, he let me see the program in a different light. By asking questions and giving examples of projects from his own considerable experience. This way he inspired me and we were able to improve our first concept to a next level.”

Chief Executive / Design Business Association

“William worked with the DBA to do our event consultancy in 2012 bringing his knowledge and experience to bear on our events programmes working with us to address the challenges when introducing new systems and processes to the way we work. I’m delighted to say that coupled with an extremely hard-working and talented events team at the DBA, 2013′s programmes are delivering against our strategic aims, attracting much higher numbers of delegates and generating far greater levels of profitability. Want to know the secret? Hire William. We recouped our investment on one event alone.”

"The CFA institute use UK event consultancy company Gallus Events: "We’re all so pleased to see the results of William's strategy come to fruition. We not only saw a big increase in the number of paid delegates, but also in the awareness and traffic to our event site. There's still a lot more that we can do, and I'm sure William's suggestions will be invaluable"

Event Co-ordinator / Association of Project Safety

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for the last couple of days. For the last 6 months I have felt like I am on a treadmill that I couldn’t get off, but now I can (well after some more hard work but I see the light at the end of the tunnel). You have put the fire back in my belly, so thank you and I am excited to see what the coming months bring working with your proposals"

Event Manager / NHS confederation

Whilst we have a successful annual conference, we are keen to bring in new ideas to keep the audience engaged and for them to come back year on year. William has delivered a number of workshops for us, giving staff the tools and confidence to plan new and innovative sessions. He has been able to adapt the workshops to meet the needs of the participants. We are still in the early days of planning the 2016 event, but the added value and impetus these workshops have brought to the table, will ensure the continued success and growth of our annual conference.

William was a massive help to me, giving a second, well-informed perspective not only my events programme but my approach to sponsorship. His fantastic ideas have made me rethink my strategy and I will be making a great deal of changes! I can’t recommend William highly enough and look forward to working with him again in the future.
