Northern events specialist expands into Wiltshire

Written by Peter Davison.


An event and entertainment specialist has opened a new site in Wiltshire. Odin Events supply event entertainment, brand marketing and prop hire to businesses, local authorities, large-scale events and private functions, across the UK.

Recent clients include Amazon, the British Grand Prix, Tesco, British Airways, Bvlgari and Christian Dior as well as local authorities and community events.

The new depot, which opened in June at Marston Meysey, near Cricklade, spans 8,500 square feet and is the company’s first site outside of the North West.

Shane Reed, founder and CEO of Odin Events, said: "We’re delighted to have expanded our operation outside of the North West, and Wiltshire seemed like the perfect place for us to anchor our Southern base.

"By opening a second depot in the area we will be able to better service our clients in the South West and surrounding areas. We anticipate that the new depot will help us to cut our annual mileage by 60,000 miles and help us to reduce our carbon footprint by approximately 30 metric tonnes."

Shane added: "As for many businesses, the past few months have been challenging for us but we are finding new ways to adapt what we do and continue to deliver high quality events and entertainment for our clients."

Odin Events expansive offerings includes event management, prop hire and theming, corporate fun and brand marketing. Event supplies span a large range of fun equipment, including ice rinks, giant snow globes, town centre trails, and corporate fun day entertainment.

Founded in 2010, the company is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary this year. Over the past decade Odin Events has delivered more than 5,000 activations and events and has grown to employ a team of more than 30 event specialists.
