Blog – ReflectIn on 2018

ReflectIn on 2018 at ConnectIn 

We can hardly believe it’s that time again. The time when we look back on the previous year and the triumphs and lessons learnt in business. (never defeats!)

2018 has been one heck of a year. A year of diversity, growth and success. As an Events Management agency we always expect the unexpected, but 2018 was definitely what we expected; rewarding! And that’s down to our teams’ vision, passion and sheer hard work.

From delivering large scale experiential executions like transforming the grandeur of Mottram Hall into an Ibiza themed beach party for a global corporate client, to implementing innovative technologies into conferences and product launch events, we did it all.

A stand out highlight of the year was organising the inaugural This Is Manchester Awards from start to finish, providing a full and extensive event management service for the first of its kind 400-person award ceremony. This included venue finding, rig, AV and technical set-up, event running and re-dig. All without a hitch!

Another highlight was winning and executing the experiential marketing tour for the North’s most hotly anticipated restaurant launch ever, The Ivy. Here we got to showcase our creative juices and organisational excellence as we toured the Ivy Bus and Ivy Men all around!

2018 was also a year of versatility. Entering new industries and pushing creative boundaries! The Education and Technology sectors are two to name and areas we excelled in, providing innovative event solutions for our clients.

Part of the excitement about working with a client is getting to know them, and the team at ConnectIn really know ours. We spent 2018 working closely with all our existing and new clients and getting hands on to achieve the results they desired. And it looks like we did an excellent job at that as we’re entering 2019 retaining all of our clients and looking forward to another year of successful events.

As we enter 2019 with two new team members, a roster of exciting clients and an already active calendar for the new year, we look forward to getting back into our rhythm and embracing 2019 head on.
