2016 has been a fantastic year for KDM Events, we’ve been recruiting, renovating, innovating and expanding far beyond our 2015 goals. And that’s all been in addition to the hundreds of team building activities we’ve provided, conferences we’ve managed, venues we’ve sourced and entertainment we’ve supplied.
It’s sure been a busy one, but we’re not about to slow down, we’re on a roll! We’re committed to continuous development, being in the business of innovative event management, we place a great deal of importance on the unique quality and ideas our team produces, our in-house technical experts keep us ahead of the event technology game and our experienced event management team ensure the smooth running of our clients’ events through their vast combined knowledge of event venues, industry advances and team building trends.
So Far This Year
Our Workshop Manager; Pete, retired following over 20 years at KDM building unique activity equipment, themed props and even staging, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as we said goodbye to Pete! Luckily, Pete spent 2016 working with Chris, a lifelong Joiner and Carpenter, who was ready to save the day and take the place of Event Creator Extraordinaire, and though he’s jumped into a great big pair of creative boots, he’s doing a fabulous job!
Watch this space for brand new themes in 2017 along with digital strategy games and brand new icebreakers from our event development team.
You’ll soon be treated to a glimpse of our beautifully renovated office, to keep our growing workforce happy at work we’ve slowly and carefully taken a sledge hammer to our old office layout and style, we’ve made it warmer, cosier, popped in a couple more offices for convenience, installed a brand new kitchen, a bright diner style lunch space and a great big wall mural! It’s been an ongoing team building experience for us all, helping each other out through the noise and dirt, communicating without words during the pneumatic drill period and pulling together to make sure our clients’ events wouldn’t be effected when we lost a little office time on the day that will forever be known as Tarmac-Tuesday; the day a small unplanned asphalt issue resulted in hot tarmac being spread while we held on outside waiting for the go ahead to re-enter the building. (It was every bit as dramatic as you’re imagining!)
The investment in our environment has been met with huge gratitude by our workforce, watch out for pictures of their smiling faces in our fancy new home in 2017!
And can you believe it’s only November?!
What to expect in 2017
As well as our anticipated plans for brand new digital strategy games, beat box ice breakers and all manner of new themed party props, we’ve already begun planning for a revamp of our website.
While we continue to grow, so must your online portal to us, so our in-house graphic designer is busy working away on some striking new imagery to help tell the story of our events through our website and using your feedback we’re developing a client login area in order to ensure your online experience with us is as personal as you need it to be while looking and acting just a little slicker.
