ESSA announces the return of its annual two day Summer Event to include the lauded ESSA industry charity golf day, dinner and awards.


Taking place on 12 and 13 July at The Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club in Coventry, the event opens with the ESSA AGM followed by an afternoon of sporting activities, networking opportunities and BBQ on the first day.

Day two plays host to ESSA’s legendary industry charity golf day, In the Rough, with proceeds donated to a charity chosen by attendees.

Event professionals from across the sector are invited to participate and reconnect with industry peers away from the hustle and bustle of the show floor. Fuelled by a breakfast of champions, competitors will hit the Arden Championship golf course with one eye firmly focused on bagging a coveted prize which will be presented at the celebratory dinner and awards ceremony that evening.

ESSA director, Andrew Harrison, said: “This annual meet has become a firm fixture in the events industry calendar and offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy some downtime with colleagues and friends in a relaxed environment, albeit one with a healthy competitive edge. Recent months have been rather unforgiving in terms of workloads so it’s vital that we take time out to have some good old-fashioned fun and remind ourselves why we work in this somewhat crazy but thoroughly rewarding industry.”
