Hey Draw Me Story Gives Back

We launched our #StoryGivesBack initiative to give back to the industry we love and know so well by helping to promote small or new event suppliers to the events market.

#StoryGivesBack represents a special area at our Shows (London Christmas Party Show & London Summer Event Show), where 2 stand spaces are given free-of-charge to small/new event suppliers helping to boost their presence in the market.

Small/new suppliers apply to be part of the scheme and then a vote is put to our past visitors asking them to choose who they would like to see at the Show.

“We were one of the lucky winners of the last #StoryGivesBackInitiative for the London Christmas Party Show and cannot recommend this initiative more! As a new business, it allowed us to be in front of not only the key players in the events industry, but also to meet some of the other wonderful venues and suppliers. As a new business, you have to be more mindful of budgets compared to larger companies, so to be given this opportunity by Story Events was incredible and really opened up doors for us. If you are thinking about applying for it – do it!”

“Getting your feet in the door with the right people within the hugely competitive event industry is not easy, especially for such a new yet ambitious company as ourselves. The Show was a great opportunity to meet corporate buyers within the industry with genuine events to plan. I’d say we benefited the most out of meeting other suppliers such as venues that we have now built relationships with and have spend the summer working alongside.”

Country City Catering, Kate Hole


“We are delighted (and still in shock!) to have won the opportunity to attend the London Christmas Party Show and introduce Be In Your Element to a wider audience. Our sole purpose is to bring people’s well-being to the forefront in events, at work and at home, and we are so thrilled to have this amazing platform to share our passion, what we do, and share our unique Christmas offerings – This year it is time to feel festive and feel good!”

Be In Your Element, Lucy Eden
