Housing Association - Event Production

This is the first in a series of blogs aimed at those working within the Housing Sector, we have 30 years of experience in the events industry and we are proud to say we have worked with many well respected Housing Associations. What we thought we would do is share some of our experiences working on the three key events in any Housing Association’s calendar.

Now as this is only the first in our series, don’t expect us to give away any of our biggest secrets but keep an eye out, over the course of the next few months we will be blogging about different ways to add value to your events. In this blog we are just going to touch on the key events in your calendar:

Stakeholder Events or AGM

Each AGM is different dependant on the company and the goals they wish to achieve, however from our experience we have listed some of the key aims when holding an AGM:

  • Communicate to your stakeholders about your annual report, and highlight key achievements and goals for the next year.
  • Convey the long term strategy and how it helps to achieve the overall objectives of the association.
  • Emphasise the visions and values of the association.

Staff Conference

The one point in the year where all of your members of staff are gathered in the same room, grab the opportunity, engage and motivate your staff. The staff conference is a great opportunity for you to; communicate goals, create two way communications and get feedback, workshop new ideas and ensure that everyone is driving towards the same end goals.

Customer communication events

Customer communication events are all about engaging and empowering your customers, so why not introduce new ideas each year to keep things fresh and exciting.

One of the key components of the Lightsource ‘diet’ is awards ceremonies; we have noticed over the years an increasing tendency for Housing Associations to celebrate outstanding members of the community by holding annual awards ceremonies.

Housing Association - Event Production

"As a team we decided we wanted a video that was professionally produced to head up and share our school with a wider audience. From the outset we were confident that Lightsource Productions would deliver. "

"I wanted to let you know how pleased we were to have Rob help us with the conference - we couldn't have done it without him. He dealt with the quirky wiring at the venue really well and the DVD looked great."

"The team were thorough, efficient and very quickly produced the video that we were hoping for. In fact it exceeds our expectations and was extremely good value."

"We had a tight turnaround for the project and Lightsource delivered ahead of the deadline."

"Customer service was excellent – responsive, enthusiastic and easy to deal with. I would happily recommend Lightsource."

"Thanks for all your help over the years; it has always been a pleasure working with you and the team."

"On behalf of the team here, thanks so much once again for another brilliant stage production."

"From the point of quotation, Lightsource was very friendly and efficient. Their non-flappable and relaxed way of working was reassuring and the results were great."

"Thank you to everyone at Lightsource for the help and support for our event, we’ll be sure to recommend Lightsource in the future "

"All went like clockwork and gave a really professional feel to the event."

"Your input was greatly appreciated and I look forward to working with you again."

"I was pleased that the team included an intern from a local college."

"Thank you for your contribution to the success of last night’s Pride of Shropshire Awards. There was a lovely atmosphere in the room and great to see so many of our sponsors and guests enjoy their evening."

"Thank you for all your efforts and professionalism. As usual we provided tight deadlines, but you delivered to a brilliant standard with great innovation."

"...great presentations, videos and branding…The feedback has been really positive Thank you for all your support, flexibility and delivering on time!"

"Magnificent support. Took one major area of worry completely off my shoulders and everything handled by Lightsource was totally superb. Great result, audience happy and wonderful feedback from the event Very many thanks"

"Lightsource have helped us in three stages of development of our main hall and each time we have found them to be excellent. We now have an auditorium that seats 600 with a lighting, sound and visual projection system in place which is robust and reliable, easy to use for a variety of user groups, and of excellent quality. It really feels like they intuitively know what we are trying to achieve and therefore it does not require too much explanation."

"We have had fantastic feedback and your ability to run the event so smoothly really adds to the impact the event can have. Appreciated your humour and support, as it felt like a long few days, so thanks to yourself and also your team "

"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lightsource."

"I personally believe the conference was the best yet!"

"Please accept my sincere thanks for all your help and pass on my thanks to your team"
