Hyve Sees Full Revenue Recovery as Demand for In-Person Events Returns

By Jaime Llinares Taboada

Hyve Group PLC said Monday that its third-quarter revenue for fiscal year 2022 demonstrated a full recovery on a pro forma basis, reflecting strong customer demand for in-person events.

The U.K. events company said that it ran all nine scheduled events in the quarter ending June 30, with the exception of three in Ukraine.

In addition, Hyve reported contracted revenue of 122.3 million pounds ($150.1 million) for the full year ending Sept. 30.

“The trends we saw emerge post-pandemic continue to hold true–in particular, our customers continue to spend more with us than before, demonstrating the huge value which in-person events offer and proving that our strategy of focusing on only market-leading events is paying off,” Chief Executive Mark Shashoua said.

Cannes Lions Has Company: Concurrent VidCon, NFT.NYC Events Compete for Marketers’ Attention

Cannes Lions Has Company: Concurrent VidCon, NFT.NYC Events Compete for Marketers’ Attention

Marketers on Monday returned in person to the French Riviera for the weeklong Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity after a two-year break forced by the Covid-19 pandemic. But two other meetings of rising importance that coincide on the calendar this year with the advertising industry’s highest-profile annual conference have divided the attention of some.

NFT.NYC opened Monday, the same day that Cannes Lions kicked off, for its fourth year of talk about nonfungible tokens. Alongside attendees, whom organizers refer to as the NFT community, the agenda for the four days lists speakers with roles at marketers including fashion brand Coach, jeans maker Wrangler and sports-betting company

DraftKings Inc.

And VidCon, an annual convention in Anaheim, Calif., centered around digital creators, is meeting in person Wednesday through Saturday, with executives from brands including food and beverage company

Nestlé SA,

dating app Tinder, fast-food chain

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.,

crypto exchange and media company Hello Sunshine scheduled to take the stage there.

The confluence showcases the shifting trends in marketing, including a rising focus on video creators, social-media influencers, and NFTs and other elements of Web3 technology, a budding iteration of the internet that is built using decentralized blockchains.

Some marketers—and the advertising platforms that court them—will be at all three events, while others are picking their priorities.

Social-media company


parent Meta Platforms Inc. is attending Cannes Lions, VidCon and NFT.NYC to promote its products to the marketers at each event, said

Nicola Mendelsohn,

vice president of Meta’s global business group.

“People are wanting to understand where consumers are going, where the technology is going, where the best places to be able to reach them, and, accordingly, how they will be able to grow,” Ms. Mendelsohon said of the three events.

Whalar Ltd., a marketing agency that specializes in working with creators, decided to send 15 executives to Cannes, 13 to VidCon and three to NFT.NYC.

VidCon and NFT.NYC represent where the marketing industry is headed, said

Jamie Gutfreund,

global chief marketing officer for Whalar.

“It is a bit of an interesting moment in time, where the traditional creative approach has not really welcomed the creator economy, whereas the other two events are obviously all about the creator economy,” Ms. Gutfreund said.

The NFT.NYC conference kicked off in New York on Monday.


John Marshall Mantel/Zuma Press

Malik Ducard, chief content officer at social-media platform

Pinterest Inc.,

this week is making his way to both Cannes and VidCon.

“Many of us, like myself, are happy to have the opportunity to join both as we focus on key constituents, brands and creators,” Mr. Ducard said.

Media.Monks, a marketing-services agency owned by S4Capital, is sending employees and executives to Cannes as it has in the past, but the company has also deployed more team members to NFT.NYC than it has before.

Employees are asking to go to NFT.NYC because they are interested in the evolution of NFTs and the community around them, said Henry Cowling, chief innovation officer at Media.Monks.


Tripadvisor Inc.

is coming back to Cannes this year, the travel company said, but isn’t planning to be at VidCon or NFT.NYC.

“Cannes is important and unique in that it brings together global perspectives from all different industries and experiences—something that is core to Tripadvisor, as a brand, as well,” said Christina Maguire, the company’s general manager and vice president for global media business.

Cannes Lions remains the pre-eminent ad-industry event, gathering attendees from all over the world for talks, networking, meetings, highly coveted awards, celebrity appearances and concerts over the course of five days.

It is tracking to reach about 12,000 attendees this year, in line with 2019’s numbers, an event spokeswoman said earlier this month.

NFT.NYC has grown to an expected 12,000 attendees this year, from 262 for its inaugural event in 2019, said co-founder Jodee Rich. This year’s event is spread across 10 stages, up from four last year.

VidCon declined to disclose how many attendees have registered this year, but said more than 150 speakers are scheduled, with about 100 sponsors and exhibitors set to be on hand as well.

Ally Financial Inc.

is sending employees to VidCon because the conference brings fans together with creators and platforms, making it easier to understand the consumer reaction, said

Andrea Brimmer,

chief marketing and public relations officer of the digital financial-services company. Ally Financial isn’t going to Cannes Lions or NFT.NYC.

Many of the conferences have grown so big that it becomes difficult to understand broader trends and what’s important to customers, Ms. Brimmer said.

Ms. Brimmer herself isn’t attending VidCon, preferring to study executive summaries from her team, she said. “I’ve personally found it more productive to just kind of stay back and do the work,” she said.

New Project Media Launches NPM Events

New Project Media Launches NPM Events

Leading renewable energy market data & intelligence service looks to provide content and networking focused events on development & financing

PRINCETON, N.J., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — New Project Media (NPM), a rapidly growing market data and intelligence company providing origination-led coverage of the North American renewable energy market, announced today the official launch of NPM Events, a parallel business line executing impactful, content-first events for the renewable energy development and finance community. By hosting development and finance experts alongside advisors and solutions providers in the space, NPM Events will generate frank discussions with unique and informative content and provide valuable networking opportunities for attendees.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we hosted several virtual events centering on the issues that mattered most to our clients, and they were very successful,” said Ken Meehan, founder and CEO of New Project Media. “Our goal is to elevate the value to our clients and the broader industry by focusing our now in-person events more on the development side, because developers and their partners drive the market, and this approach sets us apart from the broader, ‘later-stage’ content, or trade show models of other renewable energy events.”

NPM Events will host its flagship US Development & Finance Forum every spring in Houston, as well as a revolving series in the fall called NPM Evolutions. This year’s NPM Evolutions conference will be the US Energy Storage Development & Finance Forum, held on October 25 and 26, 2022, in San Diego.

“When we looked at our clients, including developers, financiers, advisors, solutions providers and energy buyers, it became clear to us we needed to create an outlet for them to come together, learn from one another, and discuss topical trends and issues not typically covered on the events circuit,” said Brett Birman, Chief Commercial Officer for NPM. “Our goals for NPM Events are to inspire attendees with expert, insightful content on activity in the renewables space; have them participate in honest, non-biased and informed discussions; and facilitate productive networking opportunities.”

First annual off-road motorcycle event coming to Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo

Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo Economic Development & Tourism (FMWBEDT) has teamed up with Ride North Moto, to deliver their first-ever off-road motorcycle event to the area.

Together, they’re launching “Boreal Royale”, a dual-sport motorcycle adventure taking place June 24-26.

Tyler Cole, Sports & Events Economic Development Officer with FMWBEDT describes it as not being a race, but more of an opportunity to responsibly welcome the motorcycle community to the beautiful backcountry areas of Wood Buffalo.

The event includes four nights of camping at the motocross track and three days of competition that will see competitors use the WANDURO app to find waypoints and collect Quest Points.

The press release describes the event as being similar to geocaching, which is where individuals hunt for hidden objects by using GPS coordinates, but with motorcycles.

“We are working towards this event becoming a staple in the dual-sport and adventure sport motorcycling event calendar going forward,” explained Cole.

McMurray Dirt Riders Association and the WANDURO Adventure Moto Navigation events team from British Columbia will also be hosting Boreal Royale in partnership with the event.

Mike Haberoth, Founder of Ride North Moto says, “We are very excited to see the 1st Annual Boreal Royale come together and to share our passion for motorcycle sport with others in the community. Our local partners have been the key to helping us explore the region’s backcountry and inspiring us all to be proud of the place we call home.”

FMWBEDT stated in a press release that the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation has given permission to the group to allow competitors on their traditional territory in the Richardson backcountry north of Fort McMurray.

An introductory video for the event can be viewed at Boreal Royale – Teaser Video – YouTube.

St. Clair College Easter brunch event returns after two-year hiatus

St. Clair College Easter brunch event returns after two-year hiatus

The annual St. Clair College Centre for the Arts Easter Brunch returned with in-person dining on Sunday after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Five hundred tickets sold out in about two weeks, according to organizers who say they’re already looking ahead to Mother’s Day.

“We’re extremely excited after a two-year hiatus to have Easter brunch back here at the Center for the Arts,” says Joe D’Angela, director of operations.

“It’s good to see that things are returning back to normal and having the activity back in our ballrooms.”

D’Angela suggests anyone interested in booking reservations for May to act fast, noting it will be a similar setup and that tickets are already 50 per cent sold.

“It’s reservation only by calling the Chrysler Theatre Box Office. Reservation times are 11, 11:30 and 12 o’clock,” D’Angela explains all reservations are for private tables. “We’re still adhering to some restrictions and it makes people a lot more comfortable that they’re sitting on their own private table they’re not sitting with other guests.”

D’Angela adds, “in the past that we would put 800 people in the ballroom, but we’ve decided this year to keep it around 500. We just want people to be really comfortable coming in dining with us know.”
