AEV announces publication of latest edition of the eGuide

03 Aug 2017

The Association of Event Venues (AEV) has announced the publication of the Summer 2017 edition of the eGuide, the document that conveys the best advice, guidance and regulations pertaining to working at UK venues, with the ambition of creating a clearly defined national working environment for organisers, exhibitors and supplier companies.

This edition now includes a completely new sustainability section, written and compiled over the last 12 months by the cross-association Sustainability Working Group, made up of members from AEV, the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) and the Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA).  The latest edition also features a new section covering bridging over gangways in the stand construction section, and many amendments and updates to existing sections on rigging, stand plans and medical cover.

Rachel Parker, director of the AEV commented, “We're extremely grateful for the persistence and hard work of the eGuide Working Group to get this summer 2017 edition of the eGuide ready for publication, and especially to the cross-association Sustainability Working Group for writing the important new sustainability section."

Parker continued, "As the 'go-to' source of guidance and information on regulations within the participating venues, the eGuide is a vital resource thanks to the diligence of the eGuide Working Group in keeping it both accurate and abreast of current developments."

The contents of the eGuide are continuously reviewed by the AEV eGuide Working Group that meets twice yearly, ensuring it is relevant and pertinent to the industry.

The Summer 2017 edition of the eGuide is now available for download from the AEV website at http://www.aev.org.uk/eGuide, either in its full and complete form, or via a number of sub-sections for those only interested in a specific sector such as catering or stand building.
