Over the years, when it comes to organizing events and nightlife activities for young adults, Shutdown events has continued to show that it retains the number one spot in the United Kingdom. The turn-up kings have been hosting events, parties and concerts since 2014 in Burnley, and have taken these events up the notch by hosting them nationally.
Shutdown Events is the brainchild of Chris Sarchet Bell, he created these events to educate and inspire young people that they do not need to get intoxicated to have a great time. So far, Shutdown Events have been able to achieve this, as they have grown exponentially by creating a brand that is recognized on a huge level.
How did Shutdown Events become a success?
For Shutdown Events, the rise to the top can best be described as biblical because the event that started out with little or nothing, quickly made a name for itself and became the local’s favourite in just six months of its creation. In the coming months, the events had branched out to four other cities, and within two years, Shutdown became the largest leading U18 brand in the United Kingdom.
“Within six months, we branched into a second area, our reputation continued to grow rapidly and the following eight months, we branched into another four cities. It was at this point that we realized that we had created something special and built a brand in which both clients and parents recognized as a special brand,” Chris Sarchet Bell said.
What makes Shutdown Events a renowned brand is that they host their events in collaboration with some of the biggest names in the UK’s entertainment industry. Their events used to be acknowledged by popular faces from reality TV shows, music videos, confetti parties and so on, now it’s all about the experience and putting on a huge show that they can’t experience anywhere else in the country and combining that with mega production and acts. Also, with a massive social media following, Shutdown Events work with online influencers to boost their social media presence. This continues to increase the demand for their brand on a weekly basis.
Shutdown Events has distinguished itself from other competitors by displaying excellence in its events from the very moment of its establishment. No other event at this level can lay claim to hosting a well-organized program like Shutdown Events, and as a plus, they have gained the trust of the local authorities, clients, parents and guardians.
“I know there will be others, what you would call “U18s Events”, but nobody is doing it like we are. We are the best at what we do, the first to do it to the level we have, with acts, production, decorations, and so on. So right now, I don’t feel we have competition. However, we have worked very hard to get to a point where we don’t and that doesn’t mean we won’t in the future,” says Chris Bell.
Shutdown Events has laid down the trends and by this, the company continues to stay ahead of the trends when it comes to hosting the best events.
He further added:
“I pride myself on having my ear to the ground with all our reps and influencers, that’s how we keep ahead of the trends and always staying five steps ahead to allow a few mistakes along the way”.
