Inflatable hungry hippos - the key to event success?

Award-winning firm Sunshine Events, which specialises in supplying fun equipment hire for events, is expanding into southern England.

The company has grown rapidly over recent years, working with major brands like ASICS, Boots, Google and Arnold Clark. It supplies equipmen including giant inflatable Hungry Hippos, VR, casino tables and giant snow globes.

Following the impressive growth, which saw turnover rise by more than 30% to £1.8m over the past 12 months, management have made the decision to open a new state-of-the-art depot in Milton Keynes.

The new facility is 6500 sq. ft. and will stock a range of new fun equipment whilst also helping provide better service to customers in the south of England.

Sunny Sandwell, director of fun at Sunshine Events, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for us and something we have been striving towards as a business for a number of years.

“We work nationwide, but in the last few years we’ve seen a growing client base in the south, so the new depot in Milton Keynes will give us a local presence to further increase our clients in the Greater London and Southern England areas and also give us increasing storage capacity to expand our product range.

“As a business we’ve had an incredible year and this growth has given us the ability to invest in further office and depot space, which will act as a platform for expansion over 2019 and beyond.”
