Two weeks ago today, we were battening down the hatches and making a quick getaway to get home early as Storm Ali hit the shores of Scotland. Well, most of us were, but not the team here at Event Connect.
In the events industry we are all used to last minute changes of plans, curve balls from left field, being agile enough to develop on the spot contingency plans and responding to situations in real time.

Hours of hard work and dedication from our highly experienced planning team allowed us to provide our client with an alternative transport solution which minimised disruption for their tour groups. Working with Event Connect has lots of advantages and having access to our transport management team and 24-hour control room is only one them. So, although most were left slightly broken and battered by Storm Ali – it was all in a day’s work for the Event Connect team!
If you’re looking for a supplier or management group to help with your transport, get in touch with our team today to see how we can help you.
