The AEO IOSHH Group is responsible for sharing and capturing key issues that affect events organisers and their teams internationally. Specifically they are a forum to discuss the challenges of operating overseas and how they can use their collective knowledge to set unified standards and drive progressive change.
A statement from the group chairs
Providing support for one another and hearing experiences from those reopening shows across the world has been a fundamental part of what we have been up to this year. Peer to peer networking is one of the most valuable assets for the group, and we want to extend this benefit to our regional teams.
Therefore, in 2021 we will be creating new international networking opportunities for these remote members, creating case study led sessions in which they can share and encourage best practice of what works well, and uncover the challenges of what doesn’t.
We have also concluded work on our Fire Safety Toolkit – designed to help teams that are working in regions where this proves to be challenging. We would encourage anyone who needs it to use it and it can be found on the AEO Ops Hub.
The group will then use the feedback from the new “geographical hub” discussions to uncover new areas of focus to build new resources and support tools.
Who is it for?
Membership of this group is via invite only, to AEO members who operate internationally. External suppliers or friends to the industry may be invited to attend in the interest of furthering the groups strategy.
It is aimed at those working in an Operations role at a senior level.
