Hub by EventWell®

Conferences and events are rich environments that are full of opportunities to learn and experience new things, but they are also rich in stimulation, and with the constant outward facing and switched on nature they can also be overwhelming, exhausting and triggering, both mentally and physically for many people.

A wide range of physical, mental and neurodiverse needs can arise in an event environment.

Our accessibility and inclusion focused hubs are designed not to stimulate, but to provide a gentle mental escape in a safe and accessible environment, that supports and enables to enhance an individual’s event experience.

An EventWell® Hub, incorporating a quiet and sensory room, a space to work, and a wellbeing bar, provides attendees, speakers, visitors, exhibitors, or your event crew, with a supervised safe space where they can:

  • Catch up on an email, read, take a nap, meditate, listen to music, breathe or simply rest and take an essential 10 minute break
  • Find calm, reduce triggers and deal with any sensory overload
  • Speak with someone safely, discretely and confidentially about anything they may be feeling or experiencing

What does our service include:

  • Offer welcome and hospitality to make sure people are comfortable
  • Ensure that the space remains quiet, and politely ask people to refrain from doing anything to disrupt this (such as making phone/video calls or holding meetings)
  • Keep the area clean and tidy
  • Ensure that everything is topped up, refreshed and working
  • Read body language and recognise when a person is anxious or overwhelmed and in need of support
  • Offer immediate assistance and reassurance to anyone who needs it

Safeguarding best practice and guidance dictates that any mental heath and wellbeing event space should not be left unsupervised, and that professional training and awareness is essential. Our EventWell® Hosts, fully trained in mental health and neurodiversity awareness, will help to make your attendees feel relaxed and at ease.

TESTIMONIALS:

“Your hub has been incredible, it’s helped my team members, and me, by knowing that they have support when my bandwidth is low, and so many of our contractors, exhibitors and visitors. What you have enabled has been without doubt priceless, without it some people would be a lot worse off”

Lou Kiwanuka, The Shaper Group

“I’d really like to thank the EventWell team for this wonderful service at the DSEI conference. It was great to be able to go to a quiet space and do what I needed to be able to go back out to the conference and give my best to it. It was a very supportive, calm and friendly environment. I hope you will be there next time!”

DSEI 2021 Exhibitor

“One of our stand team has back issues and needed somewhere to take a breather. I’m so glad I spotted your signage so suggested he take some time out in the EventWell room. He came back to the stand so grateful and said it was the perfect quiet spot for a bit of stretching and meditation and he’d had a good chat with one of your mental health first aiders, so thank you for setting this up!”
