At NOEA we couldn’t achieve our aspirations without the help of a large number of people. The majority of these people give their time freely for one simple reason, the betterment of the outdoor events industry.
We’re delighted to recognize them here, and please feel free to contact any of them for more information on NOEA

Tom has been involved within the security and crowd management industry since 1990, during which time he has been involved with many major live music and sporting events, gaining a wealth of experience working at all levels of the command chain, both as deputy and lead manager.
Tom was a member of the working party involved in the writing of the Event Guide and Safety at Sports Grounds Guide, produced by the Health and Safety Executive, as well as Disability at Events Guide, produced by the Disability Rights Commission.
Seen by some within the industry as an expert in crowd management, Tom is also a visiting speaker at Robert Gordon University.
Tom has a Diploma in Events Safety Management from Derby University and is currently Vice Chairman of the National Outdoor Events Organisation (NOEA).
The recent changes in legislation, responsibilities, financial markets and business confidence mean that the outdoor event industry must work even harder to make itself heard even though all parties recognise the huge value of what you do.
NOEA has taken important steps to show what we can provide and deliver to the membership but you (the membership) need to be pro-active as well and tell us what concerns you have about our industry so that we can push those items with the various pressure groups we regularly engage with.
It would also be good to hear what you think about the changes we have made to NOEA, the good and the not so.
I believe passionately in this organisation, I believe the membership are capable of extraordinary, magical things and I am here to listen to what you have to say.

As a specialist in event technical services I have for several years supported NOEA annual conventions by providing knowledge and equipment where necessary. For future events I would happily do the same, but as a council member will be more involved with the planning.

Hello. I’m Richard Millward.
I’m delighted to have been re-elected for another two years on the NOEA General Council and very pleased with the momentum the Association is gaining as a leading reference for important legislation and progress in the Events Industry.
The practical aspects of running events seem to be getting ever more challenging, expensive and litigious (or maybe I am just getting older, meaner and frightened!). For this reason NOEA is an essential organisation and resource for anyone in the Events Industry which is why I am proud to be a part of it.

Paul (Director of Event Wine Solutions Limited) has been a wine industry professional for over 30 years. Qualified to WSET Diploma Level and with a wide ranging Wine Trade background, he has worked in brand development, product selection and blending, supplier and client relationship management and a myriad other trade roles. Paul can claim to have sung Sinatra in Japanese Karaoke Bars, flambéed with Remy Martin Louis XIII, spoken in depth on Champagne at many of the country’s finest hotels, been bugged by some rather unpleasant individuals in Bulgarian hotels whilst negotiating wine supply contracts, bumped into (literally) the Queen Mother in Wellington Barracks and got into a whole pile of other scrapes. Small wonder that, having had so much fun in the world of drink bottled in glass, he now seeks a less threatening (PET) bottle format to develop.
