“Eve is delighted to be supporting the inaugural Festival Supplier Awards. As a major supplier to festivals throughout the UK, we are aware of the hard work that goes into making these events a success. This includes the companies who design and run these events, through to infrastructure companies such as ourselves.” Commented Nigel Quinn, Eve’s Managing Director.
“It is important to recognise the efforts of companies and individuals across the festival industry who regularly go above and beyond the call of duty to make the events what they are. The industry evolves for the better year on year, and we are proud to be involved in these Awards.”
