Four Seasons Healthcare Roadshow, 2016

“Thank you for helping to make our conferences successful.”

Four Seasons Healthcare has over 300 care homes across the UK; each one specialising in providing safe, high-quality care for residents.

Following a challenging year for the social care industry, in 2016 Four Seasons invested in a roadshow to deliver key messages about the previous 12 months; reassuring, motivating, and informing employees, while providing a clear and positive vision for the year ahead.

Taking place in venues across England, as well as in Northern Ireland and Scotland, as a returning client, Four Season knew it could trust Apex to deliver its event requirements; on time and in budget.

The Challenge

The Four Seasons Healthcare Roadshow consisted of five back-to-back, day-long events across the UK. Starting in Belfast, then Glasgow, Newcastle, Bolton, and ending in Oxford. With such a demanding schedule, time management, organisation, and hard work were essential to ensure these events ran smoothly.

With responsibility for venue liaison, Apex conducted site visits at each location to determine their suitability. Once happy that the sites could meet the various requirements of our client, we proceeded to deal with all venue liaison and contracting.

However, this was only part of our brief. We were also responsible for sending out over 500 personalised email invitations in each event location, the registration and management of these delegates, catering, AV, and room layouts. And we had to ensure that the budgets worked for our client.

Luckily our team has everything it takes to make this happen.

The Event

As the day-long events were back-to-back, a very quick turnaround was required each evening after the event closed; with the next venue to be set up and ready to go.

But with over 25 years’ event management experience, multi-site events aren’t anything new to Apex. In fact, we're as comfortable organising an event roadshow spanning the country as we are arranging a one-day conference.

The Result

“Now that the dust is settling I just wanted to say, once again, thank you for helping to make our conferences successful.”

  “Just wanted to say thank you for all your help yesterday for making the conference run so smoothly, it was really appreciated.”
