VenuIQ partners with Sticky Wicket charity in 2022: Providing tech to event industry day out

VenuIQ has announced an onsite technology partnership with Sticky Wicket 2022. The fundraising event, better known as the “event industry day out”, has become somewhat of a cult event for those in the industry.

Having worked with most of the organising companies, VenuIQ made the easy decision to enhance the onsite journey of attendees with their mobile app technology. Live scores, team sheets, innovative designs and most importantly electronic fundraising will aim to take Sticky Wicket to the next level.

Luke Buckley, Head of Partnership Network said “I knew of Sticky Wicket around 4 years ago. Ed Tranter has always been an avid supporter. When asked by Toby to help out, we couldn’t agree fast enough. A great cause, run by great people by one hell of an industry.”

The Sticky Wicket Steering Group is a collective of event and exhibition industry people who are passionate about events and sport and want to raise money for a fantastic charity, the Lord’s Taverners for whom they have raised just shy of £480,000 over the last 13 years!

They are a community of people and organisations that collaborate to provide innovative, inclusive, and impactful cricket programmes, empowering young people with disabilities and from disadvantaged communities to develop the knowledge, skills, capabilities, and confidence required to overcome the challenges of inequality, raise their aspirations and reach their potential. Committee members include Toby Wand of TW Events, Laura Tythcott of Whitespace Xpo, Jeremy Rees of Excel London and many more.

Toby, who is current Chair of Sticky Wicket said: ‘It’s great to bring a technology partner on board for this superb event. The day is about playing sport and raising cash for an amazing charity but networking and knowing who is going to be there to plan some time to meet up
is important too. VenuIQ and the new Sticky Wicket app will provide all of this and more and we welcome them on board!’
