Peter Andre and TOWIE make appearances at Matalan AGM

A Manchester based production firm has completed one of their major projects of the year, working with retail giant Matalan.

Vision Eve3nt Manchester (VE-M) won the contract to deliver sound, lighting and production for Matalan’s annual leadership conference at ACC Liverpool.

Matalan’s major event sees more than 500 managers in attendance. The conference includes presentations from the Matalan Board of Directors, product showcases, a fashion show, live entertainment, and this year saw celebrity appearances from Peter Andre and Jess Wright from TOWIE.

VE-M were brought in to create a range of audio and visual elements at the two-day conference. This included lighting and sound for the fashion show, which used a 12m x 3m catwalk, lighting for the 13m x 4m main stage and the creation of huge 25m screen which formed the backdrop of the main conference and fashion show, and was created by using four projectors.

Lisa Clayton, director of VE-M said: “We handled the leadership conference for Matalan in 2017, so we were made up to win the contract again and this year has been even bigger and better. It was a fantastic show with lots of audio and visual elements with the mix of fashion shows, live performances from the Matalan Alder Hey choir and awards, combined with more typical business conference elements.”

She added: “The highlight of the show was a catwalk show with full choreography, with special appearances from Peter Andre and Jessica Wright, who are both ambassadors for the brand and regularly feature on Matalan’s online style chat show 'The Show’.”

VE-M is based in City Works, Manchester and offers audio visual, set design and build, video production, content creation and equipment hire for events.  For more information visit
