Winning the Production Award at The Event Awards 2016 has capped a phenomenal 12 months for leading Midlands live events company On Event Production Co.
It’s been a phenomenal year, and one that we couldn’t have had without you, so we’d like to thank all of our clients, suppliers and friends for your support throughout 2016 – thank you!
Since relocating from our premises in Long Eaton to our new, purpose-built premises in Castle Donington, On has gone from strength to strength – with our last trading year showing an increase in turnover by over 30% and the recruitment an additional 9 members of staff.
The decision to relocate to our new 15,000 ft2 facility, which is twice the size of our previous accommodation, has enabled the team here at On to expand all areas of our operation, including our in-house fabrication department and dedicated roadshow division.
We’ve invested £340,000 in a range of new technical equipment across our lighting, video and audio equipment inventory during our last trading year and other recent investment highlights also include an additional £50,000 on an L-Acoustics KARA line array sound system, along with £44,000 on the upgrade and expansion of the company’s fleet of vehicles.
During 2016, the team here at On have worked on a whole host of exciting projects across the UK, including teaming up with the Walt Disney Company in July to stage the UK press conference for Finding Dory, one of the year’s most eagerly-anticipated films.
Other notable projects include the creation of a functioning theatre space on the 5th level of the Bull Ring’s Moor Street car park for high end department store Selfridges in Birmingham and transforming the Aircraft Restoration Company’s new ‘Stephenson Hangar’ at Duxford’s Imperial War Museum in Cambridgeshire into a giant events space ahead of its official launch.
We were also commissioned by Virgin Media Business to provide full technical production and custom stage scenery for the grand finale of this year’s Virgin Media Business VOOM 2016 competition.
Several key appointments and promotions have also been made across the company throughout the year.
Senior production manager Adam Dewhurst was promoted to production director and is now responsible for managing a variety of live events, along with client liaison and budget management. Adam took over the position left vacant by Chris Vernon-Smith, who assumed the newly created post of technical director. In addition, two new production managers are currently being recruited, which will enable the team at On to cope with a busy calendar of events as we move into 2017.
Speaking of the company’s success this year, Guy Eaton, managing director of On Event Production Co., said:
“We always looked forward to an exciting year following our relocation, but 2016 has gone on to exceed all our expectations.
“Winning the Production Award at the National Event Awards 2016 was the highlight of a year which has seen us grow significantly, with a number of key appointments and promotions and the development of our portfolio and client networks.
“We’re now working hard on the next phase of our expansion and have some exciting plans for 2017.”
