Buemi Brings Home Gold In Berlin And So Did Event

It was a weekend to remember for Buemi and Event enjoyed success with our merchandise stand.

Sebastien Buemi bolted his way round the track on Sunday to win the Berlin ePrix. The win now means Buemi has closed the gap on Lucas Di Grassi’s championship run to just 1 point heading into the Formula E season finale.

It has been an exciting and eventful season, which has witnessed the sport take off into race car heaven, dominating headlines and seeing audience numbers grow immensely across each race. Event! have loved working with Formula-E and curating the sports merchandise. We are just as excited for the season finale in July!

Check out our gallery from yesterday’s race and our merch stand.

If you like what you see why not check out our Formula E webshop.  The finale is on the 2nd and 3rd of July in London, so get yourselves prepared with t-shirts, caps and more.

Start Of A Muddy Season

This weekend was the first Tough Mudder event of 2016 where we supplied over 100,000 performance finisher t-shirts.

Thousand upon thousand turned up to Henley on Thames to brave the brutal battle that is Tough Mudder. It is a sticky and tricky endurance test, putting competitors out of their comfort zone by completing a 10-12 mile muddy obstacle course.

Thankfully the weather was glorious (imagined if it rained). And although none of the Event team stepped up to the challenge of competing….we were on hand to provide over 100,000 performance finisher t-shirts. It was a mud-tastic day!

 

 

The next event is Tough Mudder Midlands Half on 14th May where ‘mudees,’ can expect to see us supplying finisher t-shirts and mudder merchandise. We also run the Tough Mudder web shop where competitors can now customise their own t-shirts, with a range of logos, designs and customise options. There’s the choice of designing a men’s and women’s 100% cotton t-shirt, or a performance t-shirt.

Why not customise your own, click here to let your imagination run wild.

Invictus Games On Air

BBC Radio 2 were discussing the importance of the Invictus Games Foundation, which we are the proud suppliers of games merchandise. 

Radio presenter Chris Evans was joined in the studio by athlete and Invictus star David Wiseman, who was speaking about the upcoming Invictus Games in Orlando on the 8th May. David won two gold and two silver medals during the 2014 Games and he was telling listeners how the event was something for everyone.

The Games are now into their second year, and without doubt the event is truly a rousing, inspirational and triumphant event. The aim is to reach out to ex-servicemen and women and engage them to participate in the Games, watched by thousands of spectators.

David was also joined by a familiar face who greeted Chris Evans with ‘morning ginge.’ Listen to what the two guests had to say about the fantastic sporting event.

The Invictus Games are just around the corner now, so if you would like to be wearing the famous Invictus gear, then visit our website to ensure your delivery arrives before the games commence! Invictus Games Webshop 

Remember, our merchandise will not be sold at the event, it is only available online.

Listen to what the two gingers in the studio were chatting about….

What a Month of Sporting Event Merchandising

What a fantastic month of sport it has been and Event have been at the heart of it all.

Event have yet again been at the forefront of sports merchandising and have been involved in some fantastic sporting moments this year. Where to begin…

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA - FEBRUARY 06: Sam Bird of DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team celebrates at the podium after winning the Buenos Aires ePrix as part of 2015-2016 FIA Formula E Championship at Puerto Madero Street Race Track on February 06, 2016 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Lets reverse back to the first weekend in February where Event were zooming round Buenos Aires in Argentina, South America, for Formula-E. Then the next day we flew all the way back to London, got a quick train to the trendy Camden town to sell some merch for the 2016 Super bowl. It was kinda a good excuse to watch and cheer on too…

Then we had two amazing weekends with the British Athletics in Glasgow and Sheffield, selling a range of products for the fans.

Now we are in March, (already?!) and we have already witnessed success at UCI 2016 World Track Championship. We would like to congratulate Laura Trott who produced a thrilling win in the women’s surge race at the roaring velodrome. We still have a weekend of breathtaking cycling to come with the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins still to feature- we have named our teddy bear after the Olympic and Tour De France champ. Take a look here. 

Plus Mr Murray is back in action for Great Britain in the Davis Cup hosted in Birmingham. There are thousands of British fans are cheering on the team wearing our #BacktheBrits t-shirts. C’MON ANDY! He’s in winning form- who’s the daddy 😉

Tonight we are off to watch some Mexican wrestling, LUCHA BRITANNIA!

The Sedex Conference 2016

Event took a trip to the capital to what was an intuitive conference offering advice and the opportunity to network with a variety of brands and suppliers alike.

At the Barbican in London, The Sedex Conference 2016 brought today around 1000 leaders in responsible sourcing, with the aim of simplifying supply chain sustainability. It went down as one of the world’s largest responsible sourcing conference this year.

Sourcing can be a tricky realm of work, with the risk of overcomplicating things. #Sedex16 was an inspection and digestion into how to identify connections and simplify approaches to supply chain sustainability in the best way possible. The 2 day event was a chance for leaders from all over the globe to hear from organisations at all levels of the supply chain, government, the third sector and more. There were insightful workshops, intriguing plenary sessions, superb spotlight talks and the chance for leaders to network efficiently.

Representing Event at the Barbican was our director Paul Goldsmith who said:

“we take our supply chain very seriously and we are working closely with our factories to make sure our stock is actioned ethically and sustainably, so the conference proved helpful in gaining further information and advice on fulfilling this.”
