Sparkling Spring Celebrations

Early March saw us back at Manchester’s Principle Hotel to deliver the annual Virgin Trains Incrediball awards event.

Winter Wonderland at the Savoy for Sytner

Our last busy Christmas weekend of 2017 was spent wrapping the Ballroom of the iconic Savoy Hotel in festiveness, supporting the marvellous Technovation once again for Sytner’s annual Christmas Party.

Ensuring all attendees were able to share their respects to his memory, our technicians supplied a distributed KIVA II system to all those gathering outside, and a discrete HK ELEMENTS / 5XT combination in the church to ensure no words were missed throughout the service.
