Association of Event Venues 2010 Salary Survey results
17-Jan-11by Annie Byrne
The annual Association of Exhibition Venues (AEV) Salary Survey shows industry salaries are likely to remain flat in the coming 12 months, with some venues seeking to use enhanced benefit packages to reward and retain valued personnel.The survey claimed a response rate of 41 per cent, the largest participation of the association’s members since the survey started. Working Group Chair, Adam Chircop of Excel London welcomed the “unprecedented participation from the AEV community”. “The 2010 survey provided additional information with greater insight into the developing roles within our community,” said Chircop. “The survey continues to provide benchmark data that helps ensure that our member venue companies are not only offering competitive benefits and packages but also ensure that these reflect the latest market trends.”The AEV Salary Survey is produced by the association’s HR Working Group, one of a number of working groups created by the AEV designed to address issues affecting members.
