It’s a hat trick! We’ve only gone and done it for 2016…we’ve won three glittering, sparkling awards for our audio visual team, products and services.

On Wednesday 9th November our Director Nigel Collett and AV Manager Kevin McLoughlin both attended the Event Technology Awards at Supernova an amazing temporary event venue in Embankment Gardens. The team won the award for the ‘Most innovative and tech-friendly venue’ they were up against some very stiff opposition and some of 1 Wimpole Street’s most fierce competitors.
