Why you should be working with a certified ESSA supplier
SharmanShaw’s Managing Director, Carl Sharman, talks about the value of working with an ESSA supplier:
When you’re relying on multiple suppliers to ensure your event runs smoothly, can you afford to settle for lesser than best?
Industry events are a tricky and expensive business, and there are no second runs. So, relying on suppliers you can trust is so important. It’s easy to say ‘take our word for it, we’ll deliver’ but what’s even better is seeing the proof.
Accreditation by the Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) is an assurance to our clients that we uphold the highest trading standards at all times. We’ve been members of ESSA, formerly BECA (British Exhibition Contractors Association), for over 20 years now, which is a testament to the excellent level of service we have always maintained.
ESSA membership is not only a mark of quality and professionalism, but it demonstrates a commitment to the ESSA Quality Service Charter and Code of Conduct, both of which are designed to guarantee satisfaction and success for our customers as a priority.
Checking everything from financial track records, to insurances and references, ESSA is there to provide you with complete peace of mind every time you engage a new supplier.
And for suppliers like ourselves, ESSA membership provides the opportunity to learn from other event professionals and improve the service we offer. In a constantly evolving industry, it’s so important to stay ahead of the curve and keep up with best practice.
As our capabilities develop and we complete bigger and bolder projects, it is reassuring to know that we can continue to be endorsed by the best in our industry.
