Manchester Conference and Incentive Specialist is Awards Finalist


Business of the Year Recognition for Manchester Event Organiser

Being shortlisted for the Business of the Year (£1-5M) at the Stockport Business Awards caps a busy few months for us!  It's brilliant to be judged as one of the top three in the most highly contested category.  We think it's partly a reflection of our journey in recent years.  

In 2012, following some major project cancellations due to the recession, turnover and staff numbers dropped.

However, since the end of 2012 to the end of 2014, Assured Events turnover has grown over 211% from £716k to £1.51M with net profit growing over 250%. This year we're forecasting approx. £1.8M t/o and a similar increase in net profit.  Our speciality of being a Manchester based conference and incentive organiser has really shone through.

We think that's only half the story that caught the judges eye, though.  We have high staff retention and offer Event Management Students paid, year-long placement opportunities, most of whom come back and work for us.  Three of the team came through this route and are now experienced Account Managers.

Our MD, Karl Perry was also a judge at the Stockport Young Entrepreneur Awards for primary schools at the Town Hall last month. Eighteen schools took part and the audience topped 300. Karl is the longest running judge & mentor having been there for all of the eight years that it has run.

That means that the first group of children he mentored will now just have finished their 1st year at University – that is scary!!

We've also just taken on two new Event Co-ordinators, Emma Bolam who managed golf days at Tytherington Golf Club and Roxana Mocanu, who has just graduated with a 1st in Event Management from Manchester Metropolitan University.  (You'll be hearing more from these two at a later date!)

The Awards with be taking place at Stockport Town Hall on October 15th – we'll be sending our hand-picked, elite, social-celebration squad... highly experienced at enjoying themselves in almost any scenario.

That'll be all of us then!

In the meantime, back to the day job of planning conferences, incentives and dinners in Manchester, Cheshire and the North West!
