Last night we attended the Manchester Digital AGM which was followed by the annual BBQ at Bohemia at Castlefield. During the AGM, Shaun Fensom (Chairman) announced the result of the recent votes to elect four new faces to the Manchester Digital Council, one of which is our very own Chris Marsh!
We've recently been involved with and sponsored a lot of business and social events in Manchester such as:
Business Northwest ( a 2 day conference event for small local businesses) in May to get brand exposure and show people that we're an approachable bunch with beanbags and a scalextric set...
We met a lot of good contacts and existing customers so you'll see us there next year too!
Next up was SASCon (Search Analytics and Social Media Conference) which was another 2 day event at the Hive to listen to talks from industry specialists on trends, tips and future plans for SEO and digital strategies.
The day after the Champions League Final was the other highlight of the football calendar - The Creative Cup! A 1-day tournament for the creatives in Manchester to raise money for charity and take the crown from Gyro HSR who won it last year. Made By Shape were the Melbourne-sponsored Creative Cup champions of 2011 in a free-scoring final beating The Gate Films at the Powerleague, which raised £1,900 for St. Ann’s Hospice. Chris got to finally get his hands on the trophy (before presenting it to Made By Shape).
#WeAreTen As we have now been trading for 10 years we decided to hold a party and invite all of our customers and friends to help us celebrate it! Obviously this was a big thing for us which is why we decided to involve the people who have helped us along the journey. Many thanks to Peppermint PR who helped us arrange Bubbles the Clown visit some of our local clients to play a huge game of pass-the-parcel!
More recently we attended the (Manchester Digital) Big Chip Awards hosted by John Thomson. As part of the sponsorship we were invited to present a couple of awards, congratulations to all of the winners!
You can all stop asking us to sponsor stuff now, we've done enough of it (and contrary to belief, we're not made of money!).
