Events R Talented returns – have you got what it takes?

Events R Talented, the talent-show initiative set up by event industry professionals to raise money for charities worldwide, has launched its 2022 competition.

The scheme is searching the length and breadth of the country for the finest talent in the events industry, whether that’s singing, dancing, magic, comedy or flower arranging. Whatever your skill, Events R Talented encourages you to sign up.

Participants will first audition in either Leeds in May or in London in June. A panel of judges will then pick the semi-finalists and be asked to perform one more time before the winner is announced.

The lucky winner will have the honour of performing at the 2022 M&IT Awards on September 9. Not only that, the winner will also be invited onto a Sandals Resort Trip to the Caribbean with the opportunity to perform in the resort during 2023.

After signing up, participants will be contacted regarding their preferred audition location.

This year, the talent contest will raise money for industry charity, Meeting Needs which is working with Hospices for Hope. Participants are asked to donate £50 to Meetings Needs via the donation link, with the reference Events R Talented/Hospices of Hope’ and are encouraged to remind colleagues, family and friends, to donate.

Paul Tidy, co-founder of Events R Talented said: “The team are really excited to be relaunching Events R Talented for 2022. We know that the industry has a lot of really creative individuals who we are sure have some talent that they wish to showcase to a wider audience.  If you can sing, dance, play a musical instrument or tell a few jokes, we need you and you will be helping to support worthwhile charities in the UK and abroad.”

Event professionals can sign up via the Events R Talented homepage. Currently, the donation page is under reconfiguration but will be shared once operational.
