The National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA) held their annual convention and awards on Wednesday 23th November at The Pump Rooms and Roman Baths in Bath.

It was the convention’s first return to a live format since pre-pandemic, with industry experts delivering insight and education into the new standards and values that events are looking to follow in 2023 and beyond. As part of this, Philip Day, one of Laceys licensing experts, featured in a live session during the day alongside other industry experts, recreating a modern-day SAG (Safety Advisory Group).

Onto the evening, Laceys were honoured to win the award for ‘Best Support to the Event Industry’ at the awards, the judges’ summed up their decision to give Laceys the award with the following words;

“The judges felt Laceys Solicitors have been vital to so many companies during the pandemic. As a business they provided counsel and advice to customers, the industry and government. Often at their own expense.  Over the years Laceys have been a great supporter to the industry. Congratulations.”

We would also like to mention Brendan Herbert, who is both a Licensing Specialist at Laceys and Event Organiser, and had his festival 2000 Trees shorlisted in 3 categories at the awards but sadly missed out on a win.

“I’ve been working with Sam for a couple of years on a very wide range of marketing communications. Sam has a natural attention to detail and a refreshing attitude to the work we’ve collaborated on. The launch of the new Laceys site is now the benchmark for the brand and business offering. Sam has been at the heart this journey and has been a key driver for the consistency any strong brand should have. It’s exciting to be working with a solicitor’s firm that really understands their vast audience.”
