Events agency relocates after doubling of headcount
Make Events, the North West events agency which boasts the likes of Thomas Cook, PUMA and AutoTrader among its clients, moved its 16 staff to a new Wilmslow location yesterday (May 22).
Previously based in Stanley Green Business Park, they have outgrown their offices as they have more than doubled their team from seven to 16 members in one year.
Billed as the ‘House of Make’, their new office is a visual representation of them as a business and aims to give the ultimate experience for clients, staff and suppliers.
Holly Moore, founder and managing director of Make Events, said: “The office is seven years’ worth of hard work by the entire team.
“We have kept lean to allow us to grow and it is a product of inspiration that I have taken on over many years, there are lots of magic touches that have been added and we can’t wait to have lots of visitors over.”
The designs, overseen by Toni Horsfield, the multi-award-winning interior designer, are centred on providing a mix of collaborative workspaces to create an inspiring, creative space for their staff.
An inspiring workspace is proven to be essential in increasing employee engagement, talent attraction and boosting creativity, the firm believes.
House of Make has an auditorium lined with illustrations of each team member, a ‘Make Events Coffee Shop’ where staff and guests can help themselves to a constant topped up fridge of goodies, and a dressing room decked out with a light-up vanity mirror and drawers stocked full of beauty products.
Hidden inside the dressing room is a space completely dedicated to Mrs Hinch, an online sensation who shares her cleaning hacks on Instagram. There is also a creative corner, press wall and fitness studio.
Toni Horsfield said: “The whole construction team and Joanne – Make Events office manager – have really pulled together over the last month to deliver this functional, bright, creative space with a few little surprises for the visitor.”
