We recently surveyed our network of 100+ UK-based events professionals to help create a picture of the industry in 2019. The results below provide some useful insight into the types of events you and your peers are producing, what career progression (and remuneration) you can expect, and uncovers some of the key challenges and trends impacting the industry today.

We hope you find it an interesting read. If you have any questions about the findings, or just fancy a chat, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

How many events does your company produce a year

What is the most you’ll spend on an event in 2019

What’s the largest audience size?

Section Three: Your career

Based on survey responses, we’re able to show the average career progression for an event professional.
The years of experience and salary range listed represents the most common answer received for that level of seniority –
obviously there are individuals that fall outside these, but we thought this is a helpful guide nonetheless.

Have you received a bonus or pay rise in the past 12 months (we cross-checked this against respondents’ average happiness)

If you could start your career again, what would you do instead?

Section Four: Challenges and trends
