Bestinfest Masterclass Series – Leading the way for Festivals


Jane Brady speaking with Dave Fanning

Eventinsure was proud to be a key sponsor at the recent Best in Fest Masterclass held in the Aviva on 27th April 2017. The event brought together the best of the events industry with iconic global event organisers in attendance.

Event organisers Shell Holden and Sinead McNamara Brought together everyone from the events industry in Ireland and the audience was glued to the interesting interviews by Dave Fanning and in-depth panel discussions. Check out #bestinfest on Twitter or

We met many of our clients there so it was a great opportunity to discuss events, concerns people have with running big festivals and just network with our industry peers.
