Working Together As Champions Events

Champions Events manage 50 + events a year, ranging from charity dinners to golf tournaments and business awards. Our team divides these events to manage expectations from our suppliers, sponsors and guests which allows us to work as such a great team.

Like the name says, the awards team focus their attention on the thirteen business, sports and music awards, we organise across the country in partnership with the Trinity Mirror. They liaise with the sponsors, the papers and the entrants. Not to mention dealing heavily with the creative, publishing and web team here at Champions HQ, creating the highest quality literature material both within the paper and at the event itself.

Whereas the events team focus their attention on the logistics of the event including timings and management of suppliers. The events team collet guest requirements, provide detailed health and safety documents, manage the AV team and other external suppliers in order to achieve a sleek event. Alongside Champions Speakers and Champions Music and Entertainment they will also confirm entertainment.

Together the events team and the awards team help each other to create a completely successful event! Including on the day where we work hand in hand as one team to ensure perfection.
