Eventrend Group - Statement
Tourism, hospitality, and the event market are experiencing the most difficult times of all time. The scourge did not come as slowly now as it did during the 2008 crisis, but overnight shattered all that many of us worked on, which we had built up over many years and which, under normal circumstances, had earned the right staying on its feet.
Based on current market developments, we can expect an extremely strong crisis of at least 5 months, followed by a slow and long-term recovery. It all depends to a large extent on when the epidemic ends and the rightly taken coercive measures will cease. This period is also a long time for individuals and businesses in which the only goal is survival. To know our loved ones, elderly or sick relatives safely, we need to introduce and, most of all, make significant financial and lifestyle changes as individuals. Eventrend Group supports the "Stay Home!" initiative!
Not only do we feel obliged to support our colleagues as individuals, but it is also our job as a company owner to do so to the best of our ability. It has now become clear that the revenues of Eventrend Group units have ceased for months. Thus, the survival of our colleagues and our group of companies can only be financed from our reserves. After recognizing the severity of the crisis, one of our first steps was to set aside a large part of our reserves, amounting to HUF 500 million, for this purpose. Unfortunately, this huge amount for us, together with the government support measures that have been taken so far, is not enough to keep our 800 colleagues' jobs. Unfortunately, using these funds, we can only provide a livelihood for less than a third of our workers for 5 months. This is painful for us and, of course, for our lost colleagues. It fills us with sincere sorrow.
Our common task with the colleagues who remained with us is to start all over again. We want to save the values, organizational knowledge, momentum and enthusiasm of the Eventrend Group. Our goal is to get back on our feet as the epidemic subsides and markets are reopened as quickly as possible. We would like to give our dismissed colleagues a job opportunity again, we ask them to pay attention to our social sites, because if work can start, we are counting on them! We want us to be able to do something for making all of our ideas come true! At Eventrend, we are strong, determined, and persistent. We believe in a fresh start and are working on it with all our might. This is what we encourage everyone in our profession to do! Because we know that there are quite a few more noble professions on Earth, but ours is one of the most beautiful.
Eventrend Group - Making moments matter
We at Eventrend Group have been working since 1992 to realize the small, big, or even huge moments of our partners. What moments do we think of?
Everyone knows that when we have a dumpling in our throat, we have goosebumps on our backs, we give high fives to each other, or hug, our mouths open to smile until our chins fall, or we just laugh with the bubble going into our noses.
For us, a romantic anniversary, a dazzling wedding, a ferocious birthday, an exclusive corporate party, or a stadium-shelving concert are all occasions that create moments. We are proud of our story, past and present, which is being written for nearly thirty years, and being able to spice up the lives of our guests with thousands of events every year.
We are currently having more than 700 full-time, professionally high-level colleagues working to realize the small, big, or huge moments of our partners. We believe that we can only achieve our goals if their employees feel safe, motivated, and loyal.
To transfer common knowledge, experience, and ensure progress, we have established the Eventrend Talent Academy, which is our own training system for the employees of the company group. In this, we provide every employee the opportunity to develop, learn, and do their job at an ever-increasing level. Under the auspices of the Talent Academy, we will accompany our employees in the development of their careers, and we will continuously provide the knowledge base and competencies necessary for the completion of their tasks.
Also, we have developed an "incubator" and support solutions for the companies of the group in many areas and provide a supportive background in economic, financial, business, HR, and professional matters.
Together with employees who consider themselves happy, we can have a much more pleasant experience for our guests and customers as well, and we can help make their ideas come true.Eventrend executives consider it essential that their customers, guests, and business partners leave with a positive experience - and return.
It is not enough for us to serve someone’s expectations, we strive to always exceed that. Therefore, the center of our activity is to recognize the needs of business partners.
