Event company mclcreate
has secured a new partnership with world famous cricket venue and leading conference and events destination Edgbaston Stadium
to provide technology and event support.
Edgbaston, which hosts the 3rd Test Match in this summer’s Investec Ashes Series, has appointed mclcreate to deliver all audiovisual support and rigging for conference and events at the venue, as well as support on cricket match days, following a competitive tender process.
A range of additional services including event production are also expected to feature. This reflects the company’s shift from solely supplying technology to providing end-to-end event services.
Penny Carter, sales and marketing manager for conference and events at Edgbaston Stadium, said: “mclcreate have worked with us at Edgbaston in the past, so its team know our set-up for events and provide an outstanding range of AV solutions to our clients.
“The team are great operators and we look forward to working with them throughout the partnership.”
Located just an eight-minute drive from Birmingham City Centre, Edgbaston boasts new conference & event space following a recent £32 million redevelopment project. It can now accommodate major events for up to 800 delegates as well as smaller business meetings within its executive hospitality boxes.
The two companies are now working on events for a number of brands, including Krispy Kreme and the Magistrates Association.
Tim Spencer, managing director of mclcreate, said: “We can’t wait to get stuck into this. In fact we’ve already begun work on a number of upcoming events at Edgbaston Stadium. It’s a unique and exciting venue that we are proud to be partnering with.”
