Skipton banks on Simply Better

Live events specialist Simply Better has won an expanded brief from Skipton Building Society to deliver its 2016 staff conference.

The event, to be held at the Harrogate International Centre on 28 January, will see up to 500 guests from the mutual take part in an interactive, self-directed exhibition.

It follows a successful 2015 conference, also organised by Simply Better, which included inflatable pods, giant ipads and a “Who wants to be a Skiptonaire’ video game.

Keighley-based Simply Better also staged a mini music festival for employees of the Skipton Direct customer contact division this summer, held within the grounds of its North Yorkshire headquarters.

Director Rob Woodhead said: “We’ve worked with Skipton Building Society on their live events for many years. We started out providing AV support but our role has developed to the point where our creative and design experts now shape events from the outset.

“It’s crucial that conference organisers engage their guests and we’ve helped Skipton Building Society to achieve that by introducing experiences that connect with their staff in a relaxed and memorable way. We can’t wait to deliver another fabulous event in Harrogate in January.”

Simply Better is a family business that organises and produces corporate conferences and staff events for some of the biggest employers in the North of England. Clients include First Direct, Maplin and Provident Financial.
