Case Study

Close Brothers

Corporate Event Management

If you want to celebrate an important milestone FMI should be your corporate event agency of choice!

FMI have worked with Close Brothers since 2015 and as a result of a strong relationship recently supported Close Brothers Asset Finance & Leasing (CBAF&L) in the planning of a series of corporate events. Celebrating their corporate 30th birthday the project included party theming, venue sourcing and registration management.

The nationwide events took place at 5 key locations near to CBAF&L offices; London, Manchester, Glasgow, Hessle and Burton. FMI developed a modern 30th Birthday identity to underpin each event, used across a range of digital and printed collateral. The branded beer mats went down a storm…

Internal comms and staff engagement

To drive engagement and secure registrations for the evening events, FMI produced branded desk drops to all those invited; including a branded bottle of Prosecco, retro sweets and a personalised birthday card. Desk drops were distributed to 8 office locations nationally thus exciting staff ready to start the celebrations.

FMI managed attendee registrations via a fully branded and bespoke online registration website allowing delegates to select their preferred venue of choice and confirm any dietary requirements. Tailored email reminders were sent to all registered attendees confirming full event details, transport connections etc. as the events approached.

National venue sourcing

Venues had to be suitable for a financial industry event whilst at the same time being quirky and fun. FMI’s expertise in corporate events and event planning enabled us to secure preferential rates and ensure each party ran smoothly.

Guests were greeted with a welcome champagne reception and throughout the evening hot and cold bowl food was served. A short ‘hello’ from the CEO helped kick off the evening’s celebrations and it was celebrated in style with a branded CBAF&L birthday cake.

“It was a brilliant evening, a special thanks to yourself for finding the venue – it was fab. The food was also outstanding and the service was excellent. Thanks again for everything, it’s been a massive help!”
