Make Events, which lists other recent wins including an event for Car Loan 4 U and a first franchise event for Conviviality Retail, parent company of Bargain Booze, has appointed Heather Snape as sales executive and Becky Rothwell as event coordinator.

Snape joins from venue-finding agency Bien Venue. She has seven years' experience in the industry having worked with venues across the globe.

Rothwell was formerly former chief prop-maker at Springbank Flowers, where she created everything from table centerpieces to large-scale props for themed and non-themed events.

Holly Moore, managing director of Make Events, said: "In the past we have concentrated our efforts mainly on the North West. Bringing someone to the team with national and international knowledge, as well as recruiting outstanding creative experts will add to our talent pool and offer far more diversity to clients."

The company has just relaunched its website and is keen to increase its market share in the events industry across the UK and in Europe.

"We have grown 50 per cent year on year and hope to top £1m turnover this year," adds Moore.
