Is it 2015 already?!
Like many companies in the events industry, we are at our busiest over Christmas and New Year.
The IRN-BRU Carnival is our biggest event of the year. We welcome over 60 attractions to the SECC, such as the Crazy Mouse Rollercoaster, The Fun House, Hook a Duck and the Carousel, not to mention around 150,000 visitors over a 3 week period. It’s a huge amount of work and a real team effort.
This year was no different, with lots of challenges along the way with new rides, high winds and public transport issues. The carnival team, headed up by Group Operations Manager, Margaret Cowan, who has 24 years experience on the event, are always able to overcome any obstacles and always with humour! It’s what makes our team so great, and possibly why Margaret has stayed with the company so long; that and the fact she loves the Waltzers!
Now carnival is over, we are straight on to our next events – The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome and Holiday Home Show and The Scottish Wedding Show, which are just around the corner; but not to worry,
# we can do it all again in 47 weeks when the funfair will roll back into town!
