GROCERY AID PRESIDENTS DINNER

The fabulous Waterside Inn once again hosted the Presidents Dinner for Grocery Aid this year. With a beautiful setting and entertainment from classical singer Rebecca Van Den Berg, guests enjoyed a wonderful evening raising an impressive amount of money for the charity.

POYRY FAMILY FUN DAY

A fun day was had by all at the Poyry Summer Family Fun Day. Despite the weather, everyone and their children enjoyed the day which involved rounders, zorb football, and several other games and activities. After a competitive rounders match, the BBQ was served, shortly followed by dessert as well as the arrival of the ice cream van (which was popular despite the lack of sunshine!).

TMB Events provided all games and activities, as well as assisting the client with decisions and budgets. As the summer draws to a close, we wave goodbye to days like this, and move on to their winter party!

ŠKODA RETAILER OF THE YEAR 2016 REWARD TRIP, MONTREAL

In July 2017, we took a group of 63 guests on the ŠKODA Retailer of the Year 2016 Reward Trip, which was held in the beautiful Canadian city of Montreal.  2016 was another amazing year for the brand and this event gave ŠKODA UK the opportunity to reward the top performing retailers. Montreal seemed the perfect location with its mix of English and French culture,  modern dynamism and old world charm. The trip included 3-nights accommodation in a fabulous boutique hotel in the heart of the city, optional activities and some fantastic dining experiences.

Many highlights included a VIP experience at Cirque du Soleil, tackling some of the most intense waves white water rafting along the Saint Lawrence River, a site-seeing scooter tour with an amazing view over-looking the city from Mount Royal and an authentic visit to a sugar shack where guests were entertained with traditional folk songs while they enjoyed a traditional sugary feast  savouring traditional French-Canadian recipes.

TESCO MOBILE SUMMER EVENT

Tesco Mobile held their Summer Conference at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow in July. 240 guests attended the day where they were given updates on the business during the day and enjoyed a BBQ dinner with entertainment in the evening. TMB organised all aspects of the day including venue liaison, delegate management, registration, branding and entertainment.

GROCERY AID 2017

Project Description

160 of the top Grocery Industry Leaders attended a 3 day event which this year took place at the Penha Longa Resort near Lisbon in Portugal. The weekend was filled with activities for the guests including Golf, Cycling and new for this year a Retail Study Tour. The weekend raised a substantial amount of money for the GroceryAid charity.

TMB’s Solution

Once again this year a chartered flight was organised for the most efficient use of the guests’ time. Leaving London Luton, guests arrived into Lisbon where they were transferred by coach to the Penha Longa Resort. A breath taking view of the Golf Course which is ranked in the top 30 Courses in Europe welcomed guests to the hotel.

Guests had a choice of activities to partake in over the course of the weekend including Golf, Cycling, Spa and a Retail Study Tour. Gold medal winning Olympian Laura Kenny joined guests for the weekend and treated them to an inspirational interview as well as joining the cyclists for the day. The evening dinners gave guests a chance to network as well as providing them with entertainment from former Lions Tour players including Jason Leonard and Sir Clive Woodward.

Throughout the weekend guests bought raffle tickets and put bids on the silent auction to raise those all-important funds for the charity. Grocery Aid once again has benefited hugely from the guests’ generosity.

TMB organised all the logistics of the weekend including the Charter Flight, individual flights, transfers, hotel accommodation, dinners and the all of the activities.

The Outcome

The team faced many challenges along the way with this event however the many thank you emails received assured us of a job well done. Raising money for the charity was the main aim of the event and the generosity of the guests warranted this for another year.

Plans have already been put in place for 2018 where we are looking at a brand new venue – watch this space!
