10-11 Carlton House Terrace launches #SupportEventSuppliers campaign
London events venue, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, has announced the launch of a campaign that aims to promote event suppliers who offer products and services suitable as Christmas gifts.
The campaign is designed to "give those who wish to support the industry a practical and unique way to do so".
A dedicated webpage will host a collection of 10-11’s own suppliers, whilst other suppliers will be able to share their gift offering via social media with the hashtag #SupportEventSuppliers. Live social feeds following the hashtag will sit onsite and allow all suppliers to be featured in one place.
Catherine Owen, head of venue sales and marketing at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, said: “Throughout all the year’s disruptions, we haven’t been able to support any of our supplier friends the way we would have liked to. In a bid to try and lift some spirits and do our bit, we started racking our brains for a way to help some of the hardest hit in our industry.”
“I think we can all agree events would be nothing without the supply chain behind it and the incredible talent and passion they bring to an event. We’ve been so impressed how, in true solution-focused, eventprof style, our supplier partners and suppliers across the industry have pivoted their business to capture some direct consumer business. Be it floristry, cakes, photography or catering; many of our wonderful suppliers have done so and it is a true testament to the creativity and versatility of our industry.”
“Inspired by this, we wanted to create a Festive Gift List that would highlight these products, support our suppliers and make it easy for anyone to support the event industry this Christmas.”
Ruth Davies, artistic director at All For Love added: “2020 has been a year of heartbreaks and disappointments but we are still here, fighting, and more determined than ever to come out the other side. The support of the Love List from 10-11 is wonderful and demonstrates to us once again how supportive the event industry is. It’s through this kind of support that makes the industry what it is and shows why we love being a part of it.”
To join the campaign, suppliers can share their festive offerings on social media, add the hashtag #SupportEventSuppliers and tag 10-11 Carlton House Terrace at @10_11CHT.
