Sunshine welcomes ASICS and Genting to its house of fun

Lancashire-based Sunshine Events has been celebrating a brace of contract wins.

The company, which supplies what it calls ‘fun equipment hire’ for events across the UK has announced securing a major contract with worldwide sports outlet ASICS to assist with their sports day activities. The company also secured further work with Genting Casinos UK, a long-term client.

Sunshine Events has previously worked with Google, premiership football clubs and universities.

Self-styled ‘director of fun’, Sunny Sandwell, said: “It’s fair to say that the last few months have been nothing short of incredible. We’ve continued repeat projects with some of our long-standing clients as well as securing new projects with world leading brands like ASICS.

“Our work with ASICS saw us support them with a range of fun activities our latest equipment including Egg and Spoon, Sack Racing and Tug of War for their internal sports day. With Genting Casinos UK, we have repeat orders for props to support their promotional campaigns including 100 giant deckchairs for a recent event.”

The company also reports a 30% rise in turnover over the past 12 months. 

Founded 14 years ago by Sunny and James Sandwell, Sunshine Events employs 50 people.
