A typical WYSIWYG drawing
WYSIWYG

One of the most helpful bits of software we have here at R&B Group is something called WYSIWYG. Those who know their acronyms will know that stands for What You See Is What You Get and it sums up the software very well. Occasionally plans we receive from venues are not that accurate or surprisingly, […]

HELP
Don’t leave it to chance!

We were called in recently to help a client who had booked a space in a conference centre – you know the type, everything you need in one space, ‘free AV’. What could possibly go wrong? Well… If there’s one thing we hear from our clients time and time again in feedback, it’s how much […]

Every Picture Tells a Story

We’re getting all pictorial in this weeks blog. Very recently R&B Group provided event production and support for the NHS Confederation Conference at Liverpool’s ACC. A very high profile event at which the Secretary of State for Health addressed delegates, the auditorium was created by using a part of the actual arena, a great challenge […]

Together
Northern Powerhouse. Contrasting Styles.

  Travelling from Manchester to Harrogate recently, I began to think about the contrast between these two conference and event destinations. I wondered which I preferred.

Arriving in Style

Sign of the times?
I Wanna Get Myself Connected

  What do McDonalds, Starbucks, Greggs, my local boozer and even the number 36 bus I travel on all have in common? Well, they all offer FREE WiFi in exchange for the purchase of something very low cost. We all know what humans require for the most basic of survival – water, sustenance, shelter and […]

Colour My Mood

Recently I traveled to Singapore on the very impressive Airbus A380 with Emirates and being a techie at heart, I couldn’t help but be impressed with the engineering of these flying metal birds. It’s not just the enormity of the aircraft that impressed me however; it was the little touches too, little touches that were […]

Night Fever!

Shine a light! These dark winter evenings are miserable aren’t they? Well, they don’t have to be! In fact you could use them to your advantage. Dark winter evenings are perfect to add a little addition to your event. When adoring an event with all the trimmings of set dressing, table centres, chair covers, the list […]

Industrial Spaces for Events…

We recently delivered a great event in an industrial-type space. Personally I love events in spaces like this and I don’t understand why people don’t use them more often for events. The event we delivered was a launch event for a new industrial learning space, far from the normal place where you’d listen to a […]
