Deadline to enter MyEvent.Vision approaching

The deadline for new events industry competition, MyEvent.Vision, is fast approaching, with entries closing on 6th February. Introduced to find fresh creative talent, the initiative is open to anyone in Britain with an original event concept.

MyEvent.Vision is a competition with a difference and can best be understood as ‘Dragons’ Den meets The Apprentice’. Candidates are asked to submit approximately 1,000 words online, then shortlisted applicants will be invited to pitch to a panel of leading industry experts, after which a winner will be chosen.

The Chairman of MyEvent.Vision’s judging panel, Chad Lion-Cachet, and MD of EIG, said ‘The enthusiasm with which the industry has greeted MyEvent.Vision has been impressive. This is a fantastic career opportunity for any current or aspiring events professionals who have an original event idea. Shortlisted candidates will be spending quality time with the judges and the partners so even if they aren’t the ultimate winner, they will do their professional standing no end of good if they impress us.’

The candidate with the strongest concept and pitch will be rewarded with a £5,000 cash prize and the prospect of a freelance or full-time position with EIG. In addition, EIG will help bring the winning event to life, with the candidate receiving a profit share in their event’s success.

The competition, which has strong event industry support from EVCOM, BVEP, ISES and Britain for Events, is looking forward to hearing from future stars of the events sector. The key mission of MyEvent.Vision is to provide a platform to showcase event talent, forge business links and learn from some of the industry’s most respected professionals. In short, MyEvent.Vision aims to be a valuable experience for any serious events professional.

Entries close on 6th February with the shortlist announced on 11th February. The judges’ pitch takes place on 27th February and the winner will be revealed on 3rd March.
