There are some occassions when you will be asked to provide security at your event. The Students' Guild uses Tangent Security to provide this - you can book security with Tangent via the following phone number: 01803 311499.
We expect you to book your security through them unless they are unavailable.
If you need technical support for your event, Exetech can help you with this. More information can be found here on the services they offer.
You will find that the more events you do, the more you work with external contractors for things such as food, venues, security, entertainment, travel, accommodation and printing.
When working with or booking external contractors you need to make sure you:
Always check the small print of any contract before sending it into the Activities Team to sign. Some venues, for example, state you must pay 100% of the booking if it is cancelled within 6 months.
Make a note of when the contracts need signing by and when payments need to be made. It can be damaging to both your event and the long term reputation of your group if payments and contracts are late!
Before any contractor works at your event you MUST make sure you have seen a copy of the company’s Public Liability Insurance. This is the insurance that covers the company if any of their equipment causes injury or damage to any person or equipment at your event. In short, the company gets sued, you don’t!
The Guild have a range of commercial partners who can help you with your society activity. Read more about what they can offer you below.
The Guild have partnered with Dartline as their preferred coach hire service. Whereas coach hire companies’ costs fluctuate throughout the year, Dartline have agreed to keep their costs stable all year round for our students to help you budget for your trips and events. The only changes will be the elements out of their control such as fuel prices.
