The Event Staffing Revolution is here!


The biggest shift in the way events are being delivered is happening now. Due to Covid-19 there has been an acceleration of digitisation across all industries, particularly events. In response to the pandemic the industry has demonstrated it’s creativity, endurance and flexibility by adapting hybrid and online delivery. 

Global recognition for the events industry is also beginning to accelerate. The fantastic efforts of campaigns such as #WeMakeEvents and #LightItInRed have highlighted a need for support from the UK government but have also put the importance, and impact, of togetherness in the spotlight. 

70% of the 1 million people that work in the UK events industry are self-employed. Recent events have proven that more is needed to be done to future proof and safeguard the events industry and all who work within it.

Responding to the rapidly changing demands of the industry, Event Staff Guru has created a brand new platform to provide a flexible and viable solution for both event companies and professional freelancers. 


What exactly is Event Staff Guru?

Event Staff Guru is an online platform to help freelancers find work, and companies or event planners find the skilled freelancers they need. They call this their Marketplace, but it doesn’t end there. Event Staff Guru is also a free scheduling tool for the industry, taking the time, stress and expense out of event scheduling – from both sides. 

The driving factor for the creation of the platform is a belief that freelance event professionals deserve the same benefits, opportunities and protections as employees at big companies. By creating “bundle” packages for event profs to choose from they are able to deliver insurance cover, accounting tools, well-being support and training. All at an affordable price. 

Event Staff Guru is On A Mission To Champion Event Profs
