Event Hire Association is Headline Sponsor for Festival Supplier Awards

Event Hire Association (EHA) is delighted to announce our support for the event industry by being named as the headline sponsor at the Festival Supplier Awards, taking place this evening (Thursday 28 January) at The Hurlingham Club in London.

The awards recognise excellence among hirers and suppliers in the festival and outdoor events marketplace; sectors in which EHA offers a host of useful products and services meeting the needs of our members.

Awareness and membership of EHA in the event hire marketplace has increased steadily since it's launch in 2008, and this sponsorship cements our aims for continued growth in the sector. New products and services are developed regularly to meet the challenges of the event hire sector including EHA’s new Code of Practice for Portable Sanitation, Print on-Demand for specialised digital and printed product safety literature and signage, the Future Hirers initiative and new funded training schemes.

The SafeHire Certification Scheme is also a Festival Supplier Awards sponsor and a representative from the team will hand over the trophy in the Best Stage category.

Graham Arundell, managing director commented: “We’re thrilled to be affiliated with the Festival Supplier Awards and are very much looking forward to the evening. It is pleasing to see a number of our members have made the shortlist and we’re keen to support them wherever we can. Events like this do a lot to raise awareness of the hard work and commitment of the hire sector, not only in delivering great products and services but also to Health & Safety and sustainable solutions.”

The awards will be attended by Ann Harrison, Richard Whiting, Kevin McGuinness and Chives Farrance, on behalf of EHA, so if you are there this evening please come and say hello.
