Making a real Buzz in Manchester
For any event specialist, this time of year is always a busy one and something we anticipate. We receive an influx of new business from existing and original clients who are wanting festive filled extravaganza’s for profession and pleasure. But what we never anticipate is the diary that booked up months in advance which sends us into ho ho ho-verdrive.
The past couple of weeks have been eclectic for the team at ConnectIn Events, especially in Manchester. Of course, we do events all over the country but Manchester; the home of our HQ, has a special place in our heart. We’ve orchestrated event after event in this wonderful city and no two have been the same. From corporate activations to private functions, we’ve done it all.
It all started with Charity Boxing Nights and the knock out performance Corrie’s Cath Tyldesley treated an audience to at The Hilton Deansgate. The night was jam packed with an electrifying atmosphere which could out-weigh the best of events. And with £45k raised for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and Saint Mary’s Children’s Hospital, some may say we put a ring on it!
Next onto The City of Champions Gala Dinner at The Midland hotel; a showcase of pure determination in association with The Diane Modahl Sports Foundation. This event was straight out the blocks, amazing! A celebration of some of the country’s most influential sports personalities. Manchester’s very own Bugzy Malone even made a special appearance to be inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside gymnast Beth Tweddle and Vice-President of the Football Association, David Gill, for his contribution to the city.
Then it was onto organising a medium sized local residents conference for the team the same day as another large-scale event within the city centre. After pulling this off in spectacular fashion it was yellow carpet ready for the inaugural This Is Manchester Awards; a ceremony which commended the very best Manchester has to offer.
Here we saw hot talent from industries align and celebrate in the most glitzy and glamourous fashion. And talking of fashion, the likes of Pretty Little Thing were amongst the star winners of the evening along with Female Entrepreneur Carole Nash, who won the Centenary Woman of the Year Award and the indisputable Mark Fletcher who won the Leading Individual Making A Difference In The Community Award.
This little summary proves that no month, no week and no day is the same for event planners especially for us who specialise in wide range of events, from private parties and dinners to corporate events and engagement days, to large scale awards and gala dinners.
