Delegate Wranglers offered discount on Safer Events training and accreditation

Hire Space has announced that members of Delegate Wranglers, an online community for the event industry, will receive a 10% discount for its Safer Events training and accreditation for event organisers.

Hire Space’s Safer Events accreditation has been developed in collaboration with government departments, public health organisations and industry trade bodies, and has been designed with the aim of "equipping event organisers with the knowledge and confidence to organise live events post-lockdown, and inspire confidence in clients and delegates". The training has also been endorsed by the Event Marketing Association (EMA), the association for corporate event professionals.

Organisations to have completed the training include George P Johnson, Smyle, the NHS, Virgin Media and Morningstar.

Neil Thompson, founder of the Delegate Wranglers, said: “We are delighted to be working with our friends at Hire Space on this initiative and really happy that we can bring our members a discount for the valuable accreditation”.

The training takes approximately 3 hours to complete, including online assessments which must be passed before accreditation is awarded. Modules include The Science of Covid-19; Government Guidelines - What You Can and Can’t Do; Safer Event Measures - What You Need to Know; and Your Responsibilities as an Events Organiser.

The guidance follows the advice published in the Safer Events - A Framework for Action white paper, which is being followed by over 1,500 events businesses as a standard for a safe return to events post-Covid.

Once accredited, event professionals receive a digital certificate with their Unique Assessment Number, a Safer Event risk assessment template, and a digital Safer Event Organiser design assets to communicate with their clients and stakeholders. All accredited Safer Event Organisers are added to a publicly-available list on Hire Space's website.

Edward Poland, co-founder of Hire Space said: “The Delegate Wranglers is a powerful force for good in events, and has played a leading role in helping the sector get back on its feet since Covid hit - it’s great to be working with them on this important event safety initiative ”
