The first of the events is a Wild West-themed Christmas party for 200 guests taking place at the firm’s global headquarters in Woking, Surrey. MGN has been charged with producing the entire event, from coming up with the creative concept to providing event management on the night.

The second event is an intimate dinner and evening of entertainment for 50 top-level managers and senior staff at an off-site location. MGN has curated a bespoke entertainment package for the evening, including fun team-building tasks with a Christmas spin such as one-handed present wrapping, Christmas tree decorating and blindfolded cupcake making.

Mike Walker, managing director of MGN Events, said: "This has been a very exciting project to work on as it has allowed us to really showcase our flair for innovation and creativity through a series of bespoke events for two very different audiences. The team at ISS really bought into our concept from the start and that has meant that we have had the freedom to create something very special."
