We won gold! The whole team are so delighted to announce that we won gold at the M&IT Awards on Friday 1st March – it’s our 5th M&IT award! Now all back at FCCE HQ (the sore heads have recovered!) we would like to massively thank all of our incredible clients who voted for us. We truly believe we work with the best event bookers out there and pride ourselves on the long and meaningful working relationships we have built over almost 25 years.
The day started in FCCE HQ with the lovely Karen arriving with her magical Mary Poppins bag full of everything needed to style the teams hair – a little treat for the team ready for the evening ahead! Following the hair makeovers, we set off for London, the excitement was building as we got closer, thinking about previous years and how exciting it would be if we won again in 2019! After we had all checked in, put our dresses & suits on, we all headed to our drinks receptions before whizzing across to Battersea Evolution and what a warm Welsh welcome we arrived too.
The incredible Welsh boys’ choir ‘Only Boys Allowed’ were singing as we arrived, and it was nothing less than sensational – their voices wowed us all. Glass of fizz collected, we all headed through to the dinner where there were more fantastic performances, a welcome message from the host, Gethin Jones, and a delicious 3 course meal awaited us. Then the tension began to rise as the awards kicked into full swing. Even though the team were spread across different tables, we all knew (thanks to the handy programme!) exactly where everyone was so we kept our eyes on each other ready to see the results.
As soon as our name was shouted out for the gold award the celebrations started with the team working the way to the front to greet Penny & Dan as they came off stage after having been handed the sparkling gold award – the smiles were huge!! It’s fair to say that the team celebrated throughout the evening and we couldn’t be prouder of our latest accolade to add to the collection! However, the real stars here are our clients – they are at the heart of everything we do and to have won such a prestigious industry award that has been voted for by clients is a true accolade to the team and all our hard work.
As we approach our 25th year and reflect on our achievements we couldn’t be more delighted to have won the gold, here’s to another fantastic year!
