Since establishing in 1990, KDM has grown from just 2 employees to now having over 25. We have provided over 17,000 events over the last 30 years totalling well over 500,000 attendees! Pretty impressive when you consider almost 1% of the population have taken part in a KDM event! Today, KDM has built up an impressive client base including venue and agent partnerships. Successfully establishing ourselves as an award-winning and leading supplier to the event industry

In recognition of this momentous occasion, we have both our Director Kevin Davies and Managing Director Brad Davies in this month’s Big Interview hot seat. We took some time to sit down and talk to them both and get their perspective on KDM’s 30th Anniversary and what it means to them.

How did KDM Events come about? What inspired you to create the company?
KEV. I was a bank manager and decided I wanted to do something different and took the opportunity of a re-structuring to leave. Whilst choosing my time to leave I was baby-sitting a branch and stumbled upon a customer who was providing some driving activities. I was intrigued and went along to see what he actually did. The industry was in its infancy and I could see that a more professional approach might be successful. So we went into partnership but went our own separate ways some 18 months later.

What was KDM’s first event?
KEV. It was 30 July 1990 – we took an insurance company client to Brocket Hall for a multi-activity day – a lovely sunny day with Clays, Archery, Hovercraft, Quad-bikes and grass carts against the lovely backdrop of the house. And all followed by a tour around Lord Brocket’s Ferrari collection – before it got … erm, ‘stolen’!

What does the 30th anniversary mean to you?
KEV. I originally gave the business 5 years before it would fade – and I’m delighted I was wrong. Although we have evolved and spread our reach over the years to keep ahead of the competition. I just feel pride that the amazing team we have here are such a close-knit bunch who are committed to each other and our values and are clearly focused on giving our clients great events. That Brad has taken over the reins allowing me to keep involved and step back is a fantastic bonus. I look forward to watching him and the team grow KDM as an even stronger force in the industry.

BRAD. I still vividly remember being highly embarrassed at primary school, when for reasons that I can’t remember my Dad came into school to give a demonstration of a hovercraft in action on the playing fields! Showing my advancing years, that must have been in the 1st year or two of KDM… so it’s amazing that the business has grown & thrived so much since those early days, and of course, a sense of pride that I’m lucky enough to now work in & carry on the family business.

What has driven KDM success?
KEV. Our people and their commitment to being straight forward and doing things properly. Our integrity, customer service, transparency and planning to make sure we get it right every time.

BRAD. Undoubtedly the whole team at KDM has been key to this, not many people get to truly enjoy & have a passion for their job – hence having people with a real passion for events, and a commitment to delivering great experiences to all of our clients has been integral to this. This has, in turn, led to our reputation as always being a highly professional & trustworthy company, which is hard-earned over 30 years with all the peaks & troughs that occur in the economy & the wider world over such a period.

What is next for KDM?
KEV.  …. over to Brad for the answer to that one!

BRAD. Onwards & upwards… we aim to continue to be the supplier of choice to the industry for team building, evening & themed events – but also evolve as a trusted partner of all of our clients’ event needs, from serious conferences to informative roadshows to big Summer & Christmas parties. Speaking of which, we shall, of course, be celebrating our 30th anniversary with a big party this July!

During the year we will be making a number of significant announcements as we continue to strive to be a leader of excellence within the industry. Keep your eyes peeled for exciting news such as exclusive offers, brand new events to 2020 and much more.
