Pitman's News: Pitman's People Celebrates A Decade Of Success

7th December 2012: This week saw Pitman’s People celebrate a decade of success working across the events industry with a night to remember for 200 VIP guests.

Set in the industrial surroundings of The Oval Space in London’s Shoreditch, guests were treated to an exciting evening of high-brow entertainment including a set from house diva legend, Kym Mazelle, music from the Hightown Crows; DJ; three burlesque shows; unlimited Pitman’s Punch; plus an extravagant three course dinner and boiler room desserts, inspired by Heston Blumenthal. The entire event was manned by Pitman’s staff right from the security and front of house staff to the waiters and bar tenders. All guests were treated to party bags provided by all bagged up.

Managing Director Oliver Pitman gave a warm welcome speech to all the party guests who included clients, media, suppliers and colleagues:

“At Pitman’s People, we have come a long way in the last decade and I believe we have carved ourselves a distinct position in the events industry. We have had the privilege of working alongside global players in the marquee and event structure sector with the likes of Arena Structures, De Boer, Gl events, Roeder, Losberger and Mar-key Group to name but a few.

“When I first started Pitman’s People in 2001, we were working mainly in the marquee and event structure sector. In 2009, we launched the Event Staffing Division and quickly built a reputation for supporting event organisers, venues and exhibitions with the supply of quality staff, ranging from Stewards and security to hospitality and brand ambassadors.

“This year alone we have built over one million square metres of structures, and we’ve been thrilled to work on London 2012 -– it was the biggest and best sporting event ever! I feel an Olympian sized pride in what we have achieved – and tremendous excitement about the next ten years. Next year is set to be just as big as we continue to work on some of the country’s top events.”
