theSOURCE: July 2014 issue


In December 2013 we published Outsourced Events’ first EMEA cost-per-delegate benchmarking report. It was so well received and proved such a useful report that six months on, we’ve now updated it. Using our contacts and experience of international events, we’ve investigated two more locations to give you a straightforward cost-per-head comparison of 25 locations, based on a simple, one-day marketing event. You’ll find a link to the report in this issue of theSOURCE.

Our case study this month showcases a user group event we ran for EMC at the Cinecitta Film Studios in Rome, Italy and following the TM Forum in Nice, we look at the capital of the Riviera as a location for events. As we were also in Paris last month, we’ve recommended “un restaurant tres Parisien” and finally our venue of the month is one we used for a corporate golf day in Kinsale Ireland.

Where to hold your international marketing event in 2014 – 6 Month Update

Our inaugural Outsourced Events EMEA cost per delegate report, published in December 2013, proved to be such a useful tool for event marketers, that six months on, we’ve updated it and investigated 2 more locations, Tel Aviv and Dublin.

As well as costs per head, you’ll also find useful information to help you choose which location is best for your event. To whet your appetite, here are five key highlights from the report:

  • 3 useful facts about each of the 25 locations
  • Tel Aviv and Dublin amongst the 5 cheapest locations
  • All round best buy Helsinki in Finland
  • Best buy for ease of travel Brussels in Belgium

As we had such great feedback and you all found it so useful, we’ll be updating the report every six months. Please do get in touch if you have any particular locations that you would like to see included and we’ll investigate them for you.

I must say, this has been probably the best organised event we have ever attended. The pre-event support was great, you made sure I was aware of the deadlines and met them, without badgering me.

Restaurant of the Month
La Gauloise, Paris, France

Serving classic French cuisine, the restaurant has a very traditional feel, with its red banquettes and plenty of mirrors. The service and wine list, as you would expect are impeccable. Within walking distance of Le Tour Eiffel in Montparnasse it rates very high in the Michelin guide.

At the end of May at the Clerkenwell Design Week in London, Philips and Desso, showcased a digital LED carpet. Essentially it’s much like a normal carpet with LED arrays built into the underside that shine through the “light transmissive carpet”. This means that unlike projected displays, the image isn’t interrupted by people walking past. Whilst at the moment, the costs may be prohibitive as a temporary event signage solution, once hotels and conference centres start to install the carpet, event planners will benefit.
