MGN Events is working with SABMiller to provide production management for a three-day management workshop taking place in the New Forest. It will provide A/V, lighting, staging and production management for the whole three days. 

Thetrainline.com has chosen MGN Events to manage the company’s corporate away day at Savill Court Hotel in Surrey. MGN will be involved in pre-production content creation for the conference itself, flights, logistics planning and production support and event management for the one-day internal event.

MGN Events first won contracts with SABMiller and thetrainline.com in April 2014, and won a second contract with thetrainline.com in December last year.

Neil Walker, production director at MGN Events, said: "We are delighted to have been asked back by these two companies following the success of previous events that we created and managed for them. A new benefit that they have been keen to utilise this time round is our production management, content creation and 3D visual skills. 

"For SABMiller, we created a 3D walk-through of their room before their event so they could visualise the look and feel of the space. For thetrainline.com event we have created videos and slides for the conference itself and additionally created a bespoke web platform for staff to allow them to register their details online. By creating that platform ourselves and not outsourcing the work, we have saved our clients time and money."
