MAKE EVENTS MOVE TO NEW WILMSLOW HQ AND DOUBLES THEIR GROWING TEAM TO 16
10th April 2019, 9:01 am
The corporate event agency who are the go-to in the North for the likes of Thomas Cook, PUMA and AutoTrader, is to move its 16 staff to a new location in Wilmslow.
Make Events will move its Cheshire based staff to House of Make, at Bollin House in May 2019. Currently based in Stanley Green Business Park, they have outgrown their offices as they have more than doubled their team from 7-16 members in one year.
Holly Moore, founder and MD of Make Events said: “We have kept lean for the last six years and stayed in an office space that wasn’t reflective of our brand but enabled us to grow in a considered and stable manner. We have now built up enough resilience to be able to give our team the ultimate experience as well as our customers.”
Make Events’ 12-month recruitment plan is now complete, with recruits from BBC, DRP, Fresh and Concerto. Their most recent appointment is Catherine Godsland, former MD of Out There Events. Catherine will be joining the business on a consultative basis to support their growth and account development plans, whilst also being a mentor to the team.
Toni Horsfield, the multi award winning interior designer has been appointed to facilitate the office move. Horsfield has transformed the offices of many great companies such as Halfords, Timpson and EE.
Toni Horsfield said: “It is a joy to work with such a progressive brand. Holly’s vision for the space has been clear from the start and we have been able to really tailor the office to reflect the Make Events DNA; quotes and all! I think it is going to be an extremely creative workspace with some very happy colleagues.”
In order to give the ultimate experience for employees, clients and suppliers, Make Events’ House of Make will be a collaborative, cool office. A creative workspace is proven to be essential in increasing employee enjoyment, talent attraction and attention and boosting creativity.
Holly Moore said: “The coffee and champagne will always be in abundance with the odd event thrown in too; we welcome clients, suppliers and local businesses to pop in any time.”
