About Us

Our Vision
North West businesses, charities and entrepreneurs will use 1 Events Media (1EM) to make new contacts, to build more profitable relationships, to improve the wellbeing of local communities, and – through their growth – to contribute to the success of the wider regional economy.

1EM will be regarded as the leading provider of regional business events.

The E3 Business Awards will be recognised as the North West’s leading and most inclusive awards event, and both the E3 Business Expo and the 1EM Networking Events will be regarded as best in class in terms of return on investment and facilitating access to potential customers, partners and sponsors.

Our Mission
We are passionate and committed to promoting and connecting the North West business community, by raising industry standards for delivering high quality, customer focused and well attended events. 1 Events Media specialises in providing cost effective marketing platforms for businesses of all kinds.

Our Services

Networking Events
Working at venues throughout the North West, we host a regular annual programme of business-to-business networking events. Typically held in the late afternoon or early evening, they don’t disrupt the working day and they ensure delegates can use their time as efficiently as possible. Don’t forget to practise your ‘elevator pitch’ and be sure to bring plenty of business cards!

Business Awards
Since 2013, we’ve been hosting and organising the annual E3 Business Awards – a celebration of regional business achievements and all their positive impacts on Enterprise, Education and Employment (“E3”). A great profile-building opportunity, the Awards & Dinner is an exceptional networking platform and has grown to become an key highlight of the North West business calendar.

Business Exhibitions and Seminars
In 2015, we announced plans for our inaugural E3 Business Expo – a one day, business-to-business trade exhibition featuring stands, seminars, networking opportunities and free business advice from a host of organisations. Designed to condense all the key attractions of a major exhibition and conference into just a single day, the Expo model ensures plenty of activity for visitors and exhibitors alike.

Organising and promoting an event can be difficult at times. Sometimes it seems impossible to get the right crowd to attend. There is no doubt that event promotion can be very frustrating. You have a great event organised but only a few people turn up.

Our 1EM events team have over 25 years of experience in organising events ranging from small local networking events to customised master classess and from award dinners to regional exhibitions. And with the network built over the last few years in running the local networking events and the regional business awards, we have developed a comprehensive database of businesses enabling us to target and invite the right delegate to the event.
