STORM Consultancy Marks End of Milestone Month at Glastonbury July 3rd, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments STORM Consultancy Marks End of Milestone Month at Glastonbury STORM Consultancy, a leading UK event management and health and safety company returned from Glastonbury today to celebrate the largest sales month since their 2009 launch. Last week, a specialist team travelled from STORM’S North West headquarters and pitched tents at Worthy Park to begin a three day technical build and behind the scenes stage management project in partnership with Adlib Audio. As the articulated trucks rolled on site, theteam worked around the clock to construct the iconic big-tops of the Theatre and Circus staging zone and perform extensive testing programmes before for the famous festival’s launch. The STORM concept was founded by ex-army major, Jonathan Cunningham MBE whose vast experience and knowledge of the industry led him to open up his own company. The result: a unique and innovative service offering that helps hundreds of organisations and business owners to manage their event management and health and safety requirements every day. “Luckily we were quick to make our mark on the industry and Glastonbury provided yet another fantastic platform for STORM’s skill-set to be seen and heard.” says Jonathan. “This was our first year of hopefully many, working at Glastonbury. Along with the humanist wedding ceremony we saw, VIP-packed tents and first class entertainment it was such a rich experience for us as a team. The ambition and vision of the organisers is awe inspiring and sets high demands for all technical teams involved. It was very similar to a military style operation in the way it is configured with such great levelsof security and reminded me of my experiences at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. With over 120,000 festival goers and 12,500 performers and stall holders, this is a huge logistical project that requires superior organisational processes combined with ingenuity and a touch of creativity to pull it off.” Following the massive success of the inaugural XtremeSTORM, in April, a unique urban assault course that captured the imagination of the Victorian town of Southport, along with Glastonbury, STORM have recently completed the build of the Liverpool’s International Tennis Tournament and secured a contract with Liverpool Pride. This weekend the team will also stage the most spectacular St Mary’s Proms in the Park yet, with 24 metre square video screens being debuted to ensure that guests catch every minute of the entertainment. Working with numerous charities including Claire House children’s hospice and Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, STORM’s impressive portfolio extends across the UK. “We are delighted to have achieved this milestone month and believe that is down to organisations who are finding new ways of successfully doing business in current times. The event sector is beginning to rise from the recession and we are hopeful that it is a sign that things are getting better for everyone.” While STORM plan to roll out more urban assault events, the team will continue to work with other businesses and build the XtremeSTORM brand simultaneously. Jonathan explains “Our involvement with Glastonbury and growing portfolio speaks for itself and further demonstrates our ability to deliver. Through events and projects such as this, we are able to drive our mission forward – to redefine the ideas of outstanding health and safety event management and raise the bar for industry best practice.” Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
