ABC Events- From the Foundations Up

Posted: 5th August 2015

December 2014 marked the beginning of change for ABC Events, as Scotland’s leading event Equipment Hire Company it was time for them to step out of the shadows and develop their service range to provide for other areas of the event industry.



With the appointment of Bob Scott as Managing Director and Kirsty Campbell as Sales and Marketing Manager, the dynamic duo set about completely rejuvenating the company from the foundations up. The company has been around for nearly 24 years and year on year has continued to invest in new and exciting event equipment.

“At our HQ in Falkirk we have a 15,000 square ft warehouse literally stacked to the rafters with over 300 inflatables, 100 team building activities, mobile climbing wall, segway’ s and so much more it’s incredible. ” Bob, Managing Director

With ambitious plans to increase sales in 2015 by a massive 28% the team has continued to expand and offer new opportunities for likeminded “Event Enthusiasts” as ABC Events has dubbed them.

“We have now established a really creative and inspiring team at ABC Events, each member of our team has an individual strength which they bring to the table every day, we work hard but we also ensure ABC Events is a fun place to work with regular random happenings around the office.”
Kirsty, Sales & Marketing Manager

With their brightly coloured and bold new logo it’s hard to miss ABC Events on social media, they always seem to be out and about across the country and snapping pictures as they go, even creating their own hashtag #weareABC.
“We have spent time hitting the road and re-educating our clients on what we offer, this has been massively important to our growth. We want to retain the loyalty of old ABC customers and inspire new ones to give us a go.Kirsty, Sales & Marketing Manager

Their new event services include Team Building, Outdoor Pursuits, Conference and Event Management and Evening Entertainment, with so much on offer they really are a one stop shop for all your event requirements. Now with half their financial year gone ABC Events have certainly put the best foot forward and are well on track to reaching goals.

“Of course we will be delighted if we hit the 28% increase, but I am already so proud of all we have achieved, looking back at the transformation, we have come a long way since December from the re-brand, introduction of a more fluid sales process, a bigger focus on customer service, the ABC training academy and the introduction of 5 new services we are moving forward and building upon the solid foundations we have established.” Bob, Managing Director
