Header - What We've Been Up To

Welcome to our Don’t Panic weekly blog. Our regular round-up of new staff, new events and new challenges. We’ve been as busy as ever perfecting some of the most prestigious events of the year, here’s a sneak peek of everything that’s coming up, and what you may have missed.


What a frantic few weeks, to say the least! It seems like we always have at least one member of the team travelling far and wide these days, but recently the team had some respite from being on the move and stayed a little closer to home, hosting 2 massively successful events (on the same night!) in our hometown, Manchester.

We have lots of events coming up in the next month, with some of the team heading further afield for the European Search Awards which are being held in Prague next week. There’s been quite the buzz around this year’s awards, with a race to see who could grab tickets the quickest.

Last week we broadcast the Don’t Panic monthly newsletter, a monthly round-up of all the big news in our events collective, and a few words from our Managing Director, Nicky Wake.

Enough from me, read on to see what’s coming up… (we may have even launched some new awards now open for entry!)
