What are your ambitions/goals for the business?
Our ambition is to be able to compete on a national scale by opening new premises in other parts of the country by ensuring that every event we run is an unrivalled success, and by continuing the customer service that has taken us so far in just one year. We also plan to move into the bar and waiting staff supply industry on a larger scale.

What is your best piece of work or stand-out moment?
Being selected by BP to supply the equipment and aid in the running of the pilots lounge before, during and after the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, where over 100 hot air balloons ascend at a time and over 100,000 spectators attend.

What makes you a Fab 50 Newcomer?
We have had accelerated and exciting growth, working with some of the South West's biggest names within such a small time frame since our launch just one year ago. We treat each and every event with the attention to detail and individual care that it deserves, and our repeat business over every weekend in the summer months and testimonials stand testament to this.
