Well, we did it! First event is done and dusted and I have framed a copy of my first paid invoice on the wall for posterity. A proud moment and one that has cemented our belief that we have absolutely done the right thing! Seeing our company logo on the hospitality desk sent goose bumps up my back and for the first time in a long time, I was able to enjoy the fruits of our labour.
So today, I’m sitting here writing this blog having just returned from EIBTM. It seems somewhat strange to be talking about Clearwater’s aims and objectives, but within the unchartered sea that we navigating in, it was totally reassuring to see familiar faces and old friends. It sends a wave of confidence that we are doing the right thing.
So, Clearwater Events is officially two months old today. Happy Birthday to us! What a strange two months it has been. Time has whizzed by with such lightening speed that days merge in weeks and weeks become a blur.
The agency has already had some exciting interest and we are quietly reassured everything’s on track. The team at Clearwater Towers is busy working on our first confirmed event operating in two weeks time (yay) and we are currently pitching for a mammoth 2,500-delegate sales event for next year (yikes). The internet and social media tools have become our best friends. The website has become our shop window and with the support from our buddies at Bare Face Media, we have learnt how to use Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook as key marketing tools.
