New Competition for Event Industry Professionals
MyEvent.Vision is an exciting, new nationwide competition searching for talented event industry professionals with a completely original event concept. The British event sector is currently worth over £39 billion and MyEvent.Vision’s aim is to contribute to its growth by investing in innovative, sustainable and creative event concepts that continue to shape the future of the industry.
The candidate with the best idea will be offered a £5,000 cash prize and a full-time, part-time or freelance job offer with global event agency, Events International Group (EIG). They will also see significant investment, from EIG, into their concept and the opportunity to benefit financially from its success.
The format of MyEvent.Vision can better be understood as ‘Dragons’ Den meets The Apprentice’ as the people behind the strongest submissions will be shortlisted and invited to pitch their concept to a panel of judges. Chaired by Chad Lion-Cachet, Managing Director of EIG, the panel includes leading industry experts from The Financial Times, Storm Model Management and Walt Disney Media+.
