PeerFest19, West Bromwich

PeerFest is an annual one-day event which brings people together to celebrate the significance, power and diversity of peer support. It is a friendly, welcoming and inclusive event. Peers can share their knowledge and experiences through workshops, creative activities, discussions and The Marsh Awards to help others.

Taste of Bath Networking Event

Our relationship with Taste of Bath

The relationship between ZiaBia and Taste of Bath first began when Vicky and Helen met through a shared contact at a networking event in Bristol. It was very obvious that there was a natural synergy between ourselves and Taste of Bath. We also share a feeling of how we both want our clients to feel when the final product/service is delivered. Along with very similar core values and work ethics, the potential to work together is endless.

As a result of this, ZiaBia has a great understanding of Helen’s needs and the best way to deliver the event to fit her brand and goals. Over the past two years working on the event, Taste of Bath has become ‘The Event’ to attend in the Bath area. This has increased exposure for both Taste of Bath and ZiaBia.

Event Type

The purpose of the event is to invite current and potential customers and significant figures from across Bath and the South West to network and celebrate local produce. It also offers exposure to the incredible suppliers of Taste of Bath and encourages the creation of new business connections. This reinforces the role Taste of Bath plays within the Bath business environment.

Our Role

ZiaBia handled the logistics of the event. This included onsite management to ensure a smooth delivery and to reduce the pressure on Helen. The worth of having an events team onsite can be invaluable to a client, highlighted by this event. We managed set up alongside the venue and Taste of Bath team, managed the producers ensuring all their requirements had been catered for and then provided support throughout the entirety of the event.

TechFusion 2019

What is TechFusion?

TechFusion is an event to connect Blackstar’s current and potential clients with their suppliers therefore helping to strengthen old relationships and create new ones.

The two essential elements of the event are the exhibition for sponsors and the seminar sessions.

What was ZiaBia’s role?

ZiaBia were engaged after the team at Blackstar had already contracted a venue – We The Curious. ZiaBia’s role was to support with the logistics and sponsor/partner communications. Included within the these aspects were:

Our Approach

One of the most important aspects of the services we offer is to make sure the client always feels like everything is under control. With this in mind, we ensured that strong communications were in place throughout the process by scheduling weekly calls and arranging face to face meetings. Furthermore, in the initial stages of planning ZiaBia created and shared an event timeline to keep all parties on track for the end result.

Residential Sales Conference 2018

The residential conference took place over two days and brought together a competitive sales team of roughly 120 people. The objective is to update everyone on upcoming targets and products and to share knowledge and best practices. Achievements from the previous year are also recognised with awards presented throughout the day and at their Gala Awards Dinner.

Payments Performance

The brief for the event in 2017 was slightly different though. Instead of being held over two days, this year Elavon required a 1 day event with up to 100 attendees. The style of the event was to be informative and educational, discussing what is new within the Payments Industry. The day also had to incorporate networking.

Peerfest17, Bristol

The aim of Peerfest is to celebrate the importance of peer support. A peer is a valuable part of the charities network where in a peer uses their own experiences of mental health to help others, using community groups, mentoring, self-help and support groups to connect with each other.

A nationwide tender has been used for the last three years for Peerfest with Bristol Independent Mental Health Network and Changes Bristol winning the right to host and deliver Peerfest17. The event was held on Monday 9th October 2017 at We The Curious (formerly known as @Bristol), Bristol.

Approximately 270 peers came together for a varied, fun and inspirational event. There was a mix of stalls, interesting workshops, creative and interactive activities and a thought-provoking debate. It also included The Marsh Awards, recognising excellence in mental health peer support. The whole event is a chance for peers to network and share their knowledge.

National Summer Games – Honoured Guest Programme

Our scope for 2017 was to take over the management of the Honoured Guest Programme. With 2,600 athletes, 800 coaches, 1,000 volunteers, 200 officials and over 7,000 family and friends attending the games, the challenge was on for ZiaBia to step up to the plate.
