Be-ach please! Blackpool to host Notworking summer party

Posted: April 18, 2018

The winners of the 2018 ETO Awards will be revealed at a special event which will be taking place atop the most iconic erection in the north of England, the Top of the Tower in Blackpool, on the evening of Thursday July 5th – the 15th anniversary of the first issue of ETO hitting the marketplace.

Tickets for the ETO Notworking Event are available now at a cost of £25 each (plus VAT), which includes canapés and drink upon arrival, but they won’t last long as numbers are strictly limited due to space constraints at the venue, so please do not leave it too late if you’d like to help us celebrate the occasion and toast the 2018 ETO Award Winners*.

ETO publisher Lee Schofield said: “Many people have told us that the industry needs a summer party, where colleagues and friends can get together and just enjoy each other’s company over a few beers, without having to worry about manning a stand and talking business the next day – which is why we’ve called this the Notworking Event. And the following day, those who want to bring a touch of excitement into their lives can take in the 125 rollercoasters and rides of the Pleasure Beach, one of Britain’s most popular amusement parks, which is just a short walk from the Tower.”

All readers of the magazine are welcome to attend the Notworking Event, and Blackpool is a very family-friendly resort, should you wish to bring partners, friends or associates and make a few days of it. A wide variety of accommodation options are available in Blackpool, from The Hilton Hotel to Mrs Miggins’ B&B guest house, with prices starting from under £20 a night for the budget conscious.

A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available for the ETO Notworking Event on a first-come first served basis. Please contact either,, or for more information.
