There are several constraints and standards that remain in place which will for the foreseeable future which we will have to comply with. Keep a close eye on these when preparing an event to guarantee you stick to them.

Number of guests

As we’re all aware, there are constant adjustments in restrictions relating to how many people we can meet, how many you can have inside outdoors, home and so on. It’s uncertain the number of individuals will be able to attend occasions entering into the spring and summer, but something which will certainly need to be thought about is the size of your venue as well as a variety of people to make sure that there is space to socially distance your guests.

Throughout 2020, Virtual events were extremely effective and popular. They have shown to be a fantastic alternative to in-person events, for both celebrations and for corporate purposes. We propose they will be around to stay.

This offers you a mix of both online and also in-person attendees allowing you to still have that event feel yet with some visitors participating online with their mobile device, laptop or phone.


We’ve really seen the impact of technology and exactly how it plays a substantial function in all areas of our lives. The majority of us were unfamiliar with Zoom and Microsoft Teams a year ago and now we are having virtual birthday parties and working from home – we’ve come a long way!
