A Licence for Event Agencies

Everyone can claim to be an event agency. Or an event planner. No licence is required.

As a professional event organiser, we know all about the do's and dont's. 
Not only about security, food, health, insurance issues, the required space for the amount of people expected, the number of security exits, but about every single aspect of event management. 

There is no doubt (corporate) event planning is a professional occupancy with high risks. But still, everyone can claim to be an event planner. Your next door butcher, your secretary, the successfull pub around the corner,... They can all claim to do the same activities as a real event agency.

That is why we plead for an official European licence for event planners.

Of course, the next questions rise : How do you get this licence? What are the criteria? 
Education, experience and a unique professional approach should be the 3 pillars for this licence. 

This licence would protect our business. But first of all, it would protect our clients for working with charlatans.

Feel free to contact me via laurent@lapinquotidien.com or via 0032 486 43 43 48 to discuss this further. Because we will need to stick together on this case...
