The eGuide, established to help members create consistent standards for individuals and companies working onsite at adopting venues, is a collaborative document created by AEV members, ensuring it reflects changes in the UK's event industry. The July 2012 edition will have updates to more than 25 sections including the final version of the new electrics rules developed by the ESSA/AEV/AEO technical committee over the last two years. The committee meets on a regular basis between biannual meetings of the AEV's strategic committee, focusing on consistency and accuracy in addition to the strategic group's broader work on contentious issues, planning, development and promotion. "Members created this new structure to balance demand for involvement with the integrity and consistency of the core text, and are confident it will contribute to a clearer, and where possible, more concise document in the future," said AEV technical adviser Lee Holloway. "This is a good step forward and updating the eGuide will be an easier job in the future," added group head of health and safety at Earls Court and Olympia Venues Michael Anderson.The eGuide will be adopted by 12 UK venues. These include new signatories, ACC Liverpool (pictured), Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) and Harrogate International Centre (HIC).ICHF events will launch a Manchester edition of its Creative stitches and Hobbycrafts show at eventCity in september.
