Initially the competition was due to start at Taste of Christmas at the beginning of December, but after much deliberation it has been decided to that all the challenges will now take place during the three days of International Confex (1-3 March).

The competition, which is being organised by ESP Recruitment and supported by Event magazine, Brand Events, Excel London, UBM Live, Imagination and Bluehat, will see the lucky contestants taking part in a number of challenges during the length of International Confex with the winner landing a job at Excel London.

Those selected to take part in the competition will be split into groups and given a brief to create an event. They will then be asked to come to London from 1-3 March  to present their ideas and take part in a number of challenging event management tasks, which will be marked by a team of industry experts over the entire three days.

To stand a chance of taking part in The Eventice all you have to do is send us a copy of your CV including name and contact details, a profile picture and a two-minute video telling us why you want to work in the event industry; what you can bring to Excel London; and why should the judges choose you.
