I have been consistently impressed with Winner Events, adaptable, reliable; they still manage to maintain a personal service. During this year they provided essential plant support and solutions to a complex and demanding event build, I am confident of a great service next year.

Henry Bass, Goodwood Events Manager

Dear Julian, Lee, Dave, Ian and the rest of your amazing guys,

Thank you SO much for all the incredible work and support you give to make the show what it has become. To think we used to ‘somehow’ do this without Winner Events is now unthinkable. It was an absolute pleasure working with you again.

Please pass on our thanks to all.

Winner Events supplied us with heavy plant hire for the build up and breakdown of our main arena stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. They were not only really helpful in advising the right kind of plant machinery, but also went over and above the call of duty sourcing last minute golf buggies for us (when the show was live!) and recommending local heavy plant drivers. Everything was delivered promptly and as promised. They were a really friendly and helpful team and I would thoroughly recommend them. Thanks for all your help Winner Events, it was a pleasure working with you and we’ll hopefully see you again next year!

Christina, Manufacturer & Sponsor Stand.

Thank you for all your help. From my initial enquiry not knowing what I actually required, you made the process simple and straight forward, answering my email promptly and listing out exactly what I needed.  We were extremely impressed with yourself and the friendly Winner Events on-site team at Goodwood, making the set up and installation of the generator seamless. Keep up the great work and we will definitely be using you again.

Thank you so much for all you did in helping to make the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Speed such a success. The whole weekend seemed to have a very particular atmosphere and it was marvellous to have you and your team here supporting us so fully at such an important time. I do hope you all managed to enjoy it a bit too. The weather even performed to order!   Please pass on my sincerest thanks to everyone.   Yours ever,

Lord Charles March, Goodwood Festival of Speed

Dear John, I wish to take this opportunity to thank the Winner Group for all the assistance you gave me with making the arrangements for the hire of the vehicles. The service I received from Winner was second to none. You and other members of Winner staff were always very courteous and helpful and your price was extremely competitive.

I look forward to working with you again next year. Yours sincerely

Jive Aces the UK's #1 Jive And Swing Band. Semi-finalists in Britain's Got Talent

We hired a Winner generator for our annual festival Summertime Swing in East Grinstead.

The generator did exactly what was needed. Excellent no-nonsense service was provided.

Thanks for your professionalism. Kind Regards,

Vince Hurley, Music Director, Jive Aces

We recently used The Winner Group for hire of plant & access equipment for a stand build project at Goodwood. Our contact, Iain Cooksley was polite, easy contactable & communicative at all times throughout and our goods arrived & were collected punctually. If a product that we required was not available, we were immediately upgraded to a superior product at no extra cost. We found Winner were able to deal with our unusual requests well at short notice and they offer good value for money. We would recommend Winner as a reliable supplier who offer a great service.

I used Winners Plant Hire for the first time at Goodwood Festival of Speed and found them to be not only cost effective, but their "no problem" attitude was very refreshing. They tried their hardest to make sure we were happy and embraced those "last minute" changes to requirements with efficiency and good humour.

I would highly recommend them.

Ruth Locke, Production Management, TRO GROUP

Dear Iain,
I just wanted to reiterate my thanks for all that you did to make Tuesday night possible. With less than 24 hours’ notice you managed to get 4 mobile lighting towers to us and the driver was incredibly helpful in starting the generators up. Each with their electric 9m masts and 4000 watts, meant that St Giles’s Terrace was lit up magnificently for the Band of the Grenadier Guards to Beat Retreat on.

It has been an enormous pleasure doing business with you and we won’t hesitate to use Winner Events again in the future.

With my thanks and best wishes,

Catharine

Winner Events provided us with all our plant and equipment hire requirements for this years Shakedown Festival. The service pre-show was excellent - always very flexible and helpful, a must for the ever changing needs of the show! On site it was no different, Winner moved heaven and earth to make sure we had what we needed to get the job done (even if it wasn't a problem they could directly solve with their own kit) and provided a rapid response to any call outs, whatever the time of day.

Great value with no unreasonable charges post show, it really was one aspect we didn't have to worry about.

Thanks.

Amy Newhouse, Ronin Event Services Ltd

I would like to personally thank Iain and the Winner group for the assistance that they have showed in sourcing the many items (some unusual ones too) during the event season. They went above and beyond what normal suppliers have done in the past and indeed were always at the end of a phone (in & out of hours) when needed. They have never let us down.

Kind regards.

David Rock, Festimed

We have worked with Winner Events for the last few years and in particular, on our very successful community firework display.

The customer service that we receive is second to none, staff are always polite, courteous and go the extra mile to ensure your needs are met and that the job gets done.

The products we receive are always in excellent condition and there is always excellent service when dropping off or picking up the equipment.

Instruction is always provided when appropriate and it is always clear, practical advice that is easy to understand.

We are delighted with the company and its very helpful and friendly staff who always find time to accommodate our customer requests.

We wholeheartedly recommend Winner Events to any potential new customers and we are proud to work with such a reputable company from within our community

The selection of hire equipment, along with the service is absolutely first class at Winner Events. Their ability to 'make things happen' when an event organiser needs support is not to be undervalued. I'd highly recommend Winner Events to other industry professionals.

Alex Rayner Business Development Director , Creative Minds

The British Lawn Mower Racing Association would like to say a very big thank you to Winner Events Julian, Lee and Iain for their outstanding support of another very successful 12 Hour Lawnmower Race.

Winner Events participation included the provision of a 9m JCB telehandler, lighting towers, a Yamaha Grizzly quad, and Ausa 4x4 and Kubota gators, all of which played essential roles in the movement of personnel and equipment in the three day build up to the event.

For those who have been to the Goodwood Festival of Speed it is well known how vast the area is containing all of the things to see and do. As a competitor on the Forest Rally stage I rarely have much time in between runs to get out and either see the show itself or liaise with our guests.

This year we hired a Golf Buggy from Winner Events. To say it was a life saver wouldn't come close, it really made our weekend.

I contacted Winner up front and was very well briefed via email of what to expect and the support we would receive. On arriving at Goodwood we were met by a very pleasant chap who ran through the Buggy briefing and made us aware of everything we needed to know so that we wouldn't be constantly asking questions throughout the weekend.

The Buggy was in perfect condition and performed well throughout the weekend for us meaning we could get to various areas of the event in between stage runs so we managed to get a full glimpse of the event with time to spare.

We welcomed our sponsors throughout the weekend and having the Golf Buggy meant we could collect them from the Gate and bring them to our Paddock which went down very well with all involved.

We will be back next year and the first thing on our agenda will be to contact Winner once again and secure there fantastic services which really is the heart beat of our attendance to Goodwood. Thanks Guys and see you next year !!!

Winner events have been a great help in planning the past few race meetings with Newbury Racecourse they have been able to meet all our needs sometimes at short notice.

We have been developing the site and at times we have had to move car parks so as to park cars on dry area due to the wet autumn.

Winner has stepped in and we have used their 6 and 8 seated hospitality buggies as shuttle transport from around the cark parks to entrances. We also have used the tower lights in these car parks, this has helped our customers to find their cars after racing.

We have been told that despite the changes we have made the experience much more enjoyable by having the Shuttle Buggies.

Richard Osgood, Clerk of the Course and Estate Manager

Boomtown's requirements as a festival are extremely specific and demanding as they lay of the land causes nothing but issues for the build and break.

Winner as a supplier were able to not only meet our requirements for buggies and plant but exceed our expectations by providing a personal and dependable service onsite.

With on site repairs we managed to keep abreast of our ever developing event and we look forward to their support in the coming years.

An idea to provide transport from the main gate to the clubhouse, for Members and guests who had difficulty in walking was muted and a solution sought.

The Winner Group stepped up to the mark and advised the use of a golf style, 6 seater buggy.

The buggy was hired on an initial trial basis, but has proved to be so popular that we have purchased a new vehicle from them.

The service and prompt support from The Winner Group has been excellent and we look forward to a long relationship with them.
