Who is Activate?

If you haven’t heard of Activate until now, you are not alone. It is rather lonely at the top and when we are trusted with some of the most strategically important events for our clients’ organisations, shouting about success isn’t the done thing. Activate are in the business of global event management at the point where clients in leading industries such as pharmaceutical, medical devices, micro-systems, healthcare, electronics, finance and defense recruit us to run their most prestigious events. Activate operate at the pinnacle of event complexity where compliance, logistics, budget and time pressures are the norm. We design and project-manage the implementation of complex events, globally. We also advise you of the care points and pitfalls of operating events in the virtual space (or in markets around the world).

But today, virtual or hybrid events are the key area of opportunity and if you find yourself having to plan a digital event, you might not know where to begin. From choosing a reliable, secure platform and managing meeting content through to inviting your audience and making sure your chair and presenters are prepared, there is a lot to think about. Whether your meeting is intended for your own staff, suppliers or customers, it’s important to remember that virtual meetings require as much (if not more) preparation as a live meeting and, the professionalism with which they are organised and conducted ultimately reflects on your brand.

Why Event Services Aren’t a Commodity

Events are far from neurosurgery so what we take from this analogy is not the condensed pressure of responsibility towards one patient’s life but the responsibility the event organizer has towards the entire audience (sometimes numbered in thousands) to bring value, to inspire and to make their at...

Event Apps Help or Hindrance?

Apps are seen as the instant fix for those who want to “take the event into the 21st century” by digitalizing it. We agree, it’s pretty cool to allow technology to do some of the hard work. It helps with perception too. Not all brands are Apple and by simply having an “app” the event gets...
