We have a busy year ahead thanks to the team winning most of our pitches for 2014. We didn’t win them all… Who does? But we learned something from the ones we missed that will only make us stronger because in order to fly you have to give up the stuff that weighs you down. Right?

This year we’re looking forward to creating exciting and inspiring events for our retail clients, both new and existing, that will not only leave a lasting impression with customers but will also satisfy the toughest sales and footfall targets.

Our schedule this year is as varied as ever with many clients re-booking successful activities from 2013. Nottingham BID for example has once again asked us to stage 48 Hours of Fashion, which has fast become the annual fashion fixture in the stylish diaries of the East Midlands. We’re also pleased to continue working with Manchester Arndale and we look forward to facilitating some fantastic events there.

In Chinese astrology 2014 is the year of the horse… Now I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking more Pegasus than old farm nag, so let’s not drag around heavy carts, let’s ditch the dead weight, spread our wings and fly.

To all our fellow event professionals, and clients both new and existing, here’s to a successful year ahead. Good luck and best wishes to all!
