Forge Ahead With Event Management Glasgow

Raising the Bar For Event Management in Glasgow

For businesses planning a corporate event, meeting your objectives should be regarded as the bare minimum. Live, virtual and hybrid events might only come around once-a-year, so it’s important to live up to those ripples of anticipation by staging something suitably special. Further to this, over a million business events take place up and down the country each year, so the key to event excellence lies in resisting the ‘safe’ and embracing the ‘new’. 

One of the premier names in event management in Glasgow, ConnectIn Events loves nothing more than pushing the envelope to create bold new experiences. We can deliver everything from the most extravagant props to dazzling lighting effects, all thanks to our seamless command of the tricky technical elements. Experienced with the latest technology and always ready to seek out exciting innovations, we’ve got everything you need to be the toast of the town.

TESTIMONIALS

How do you know when you’ve found the right event manager in Glasgow? Well, there’s no better sign than happy clients. Here’s what ours have said about us recently:

From concept stage right through to the closing credits this event delivered an exceptional experience for us as hosts and for our attendees.
The set looked amazing with high quality graphics, interaction and creativity. All backed up by technical assistance and expertise that put all of us that were speaking on the day at our ease.
Our audience loved it and we were so pleased with the engagement that we could continue to have with our attendees and sponsors despite not being in a room together. Connect In events delivered us a professional, immersive and still personal event and I was really impressed with how the day turned out.

I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your hard work and sheer brilliance in pulling the virtual conference together. As always, we knew we were in safe hands and we are delighted with the outcome. Whilst it all would prefer something in person, I do think that our colleagues responded to this being the very best that we could make it and you played a huge part in that.
Thanks again

Thank you for hosting a great event. This was my first virtual awards ceremony, I must say it was absolutely fantastic. The live studio event made you feel part of the atmosphere and interacting with the twitter accounts was great, accompanied by a great meal, wine and entertainment
I have become a fan of virtual events, and the effort the Connectin team put in bridged the gap of being physically at the event.
Watching on a screen at home was amazing and I will be asking for moreof these events in the future!!

We have been supported for both live and virtual events by Connect In. They provide excellent project management of the event with a little bit extra, their creativity and 'can do' approach are second to none. On the day they are both professional and supportive, planning ahead and reacting as needed should unexpected circumstances arise. We have been delighted with all of the events Connect In have supported us with and the output for both our live and virtual events has been both professional and fun - a tricky balance to strike.

Got to say working with the Connect In team is nothing short of amazing. No job too small and the attention to detail is incredible. The team delivered a full day conference that resembled more a glossy daytime TV programme.
The Client was delighted.

Separate the Hot Spots From the Long Shots

One of the many great things about event management in Glasgow is the sheer volume of superb locations. This historic city is home to some of the most famous venues in the UK, from the storied Barrowland Ballroom to the iconic Ovo Hydro. Outside of these household names, there are countless other options that could be ideal for your next occasion. With so much to choose from, you could be forgiven for not knowing where to start!

ConnectIn Events knows that the venue can make or break a gathering. As a result, we take this crucial step with the utmost care and attention. We pull out all the stops to make sure that your chosen location has the size and style to match your objectives and make a real visual statement. If it doesn’t completely meet your technical needs, it won’t make the cut. And we won’t even charge you for venue-finding.

If you want an event manager in Glasgow who has their finger on the pulse, we’re the team you can trust.
