Networking events are a great way to meet great like-minded people and fellow suppliers. I recently put together an event in Manchester that was a tremendous success. I hired the amazing private members club The Milton Club in central Manchester, inviting the very best from the wonderful world of weddings with whom together we had the most spectacular evening.
Guest were greeted on the night with champagne, canapés, music, magic, stilt walkers and dancing. The Milton Club was the perfect setting and looked amazing. The event started with great people chatting and mingling and introducing themselves. Friends of friends made new acquaintances and it was brilliant to see everyone buzzing and really getting into the spirit of things. I met people that night that I would never had chance to meet as there was a lot of of wedding royalty floating about.
We chatted until around 9:30 before commencing with the entertainment. First up was the simply awesome Sam Fitton. Sam as always was professional and really did stun the wedding legends with his mind blowing magic (He turned my iPhone into a pack of cards.) Gasps and whoops could be heard all around the room.
Next up was Dax On Sax. Dax and his team of Hed Kandi DJ's stunned the room with their unique mix of LIVE performance and super DJ skills. We had the pleasure of 2 world class saxophonists plus a percussionist PLUS 3 DJs who soon whipped the room into a frenzy as they danced and played live whilst standing on the bar.
Things quickly moved as I introduced The Rush. The Rush are pretty much the best thing you will see and hear in terms of live music. Created by legendary singer & natural performer Gavin Jones these guys are simply awesome. They had the room bouncing from every angle and everybody was on their feet. A true hair on end moment. The Rush also feature the country’s finest and most professional session musicians and never ever disappoint. I love ‘em! Kirsty Rogers also joined The Rush and didn't disappoint, she's ace ! As too was Sean O'Connor who also stepped up and belted out a classic. All in all, a truly unique moment.
An hour later and we are in the zone and the room is electric. People who were strangers 70 minutes ago and now sharing high fives and truly embracing what this night was about. Next up we had old school DJ Dave Jones tear up the floor. This was a real treat for me to watch a DJ so into his job producing such an amazing set. Every song was a classic, every song got bigger and bigger. A special moment for me, thanks Dave. Dave's set took us well into the following morning and overall I can say the night was a HUGE success and plans are already in place for the next event.
A massive thank you to everyone who came and embraced the experience. And also a special thanks to the following people who really did make the night a success. #nwwsn
