Richard Waddington, chair of the EMA said: “Our members are passionate, high-pressured event organisers and their wellbeing is one of our key priorities.  The research shows that a happy team is a productive and effective team, so to help support the success of our members, we have partnered with Stress Matters to offer guidance and resources through the industry accreditation scheme and workshops for our members.”

Laura Capell-Abra, founder of Stress Matters said: “The EMA represents an important part of the events industry.  In-house event organisers share many of the same pressures as the wider industry but have some unique triggers that we will be tackling with the support of the EMA.  We know from our 2017 research that 63% of people who have at least one person at work that they can talk to are 40% less stressed than those who don’t believe anyone else will be able to help.  We will be working with EMA to ensure their members all feel like there is someone they can talk to.”

Stress Matters is the event industry pledge accreditation scheme with the goal of reducing stress and improving wellbeing in the events sector.  Stress Matters pledgers are audited, supported and accredited as they focus on the wellbeing of their teams.  Workshops are also offered to support this process such as stress management for managers, resilience and mindfulness.  Stress Matters is run by events industry professionals for the events industry.
