|Which category is this nomination for?||Best Major Event 2021|
|Name of event or initiative:||Beer, Wine & Spirits Stock Exchange (BWSX)|
|Brief overview of the event or initiative:|
The BWSX is our big social event of the year. The night simulates a real-life stock exchange, using beer wine and spirits as ‘stock’. Attendees are provided with ‘Wolf Bux’ to trade with, trying to beat the market as prices of drinks fluctuate throughout the night.
|What were the aims of the event or initiative?|
The event provides a great opportunity to be social with friends and other members as well as putting your financial knowledge to the test.
|How did you make it happen?|
This event takes a lot of planning to pull off! Through the incredible work of our executive team, in particular our events teams, we all worked together to put on such a great event. We did also have the help of Sal’s Pizza providing discounted pizzas and Red Bull providing the key ingredient to our ‘Wolf Juice’. We also used Bentley’s transport to provide transport for attendees to and from the event. Though none of our events would be a success without the continued support of our dedicated and engaged member base, with over 80 tickets sold this year.
|How did you make it better?|
This year we improved to event by moving to larger venue. Due to the success of the event last year, we didn’t feel that we wanted to make too many changes.
|How did you show your commitment to sustainability?|
Our commitment to sustainability as a club is shown through providing transport to and from this event, reducing the number of people driving to the event and the amount of Ubers used as transport.
