Events firm relocates to accommodate doubling of team members

The Make Events team

The corporate event agency which works with 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 Cheshire0based staff to House of Make, at Bollin House, in May.

Currently based in Stanley Green Business Park, the firm has outgrown its offices having more than doubled the team from seven to 16 members in one year.

Holly Moore, founder and managing director, 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 managing director of Out There Events.

Catherine will be joining the business on a consultative basis to support its growth and account development plans, while 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.”

To give the ultimate experience for employees, clients and suppliers, Make Events said its House of Make will be a collaborative, cool office, adding that 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.”
