MK Illumination light up the Purple Apples!

Last Thursday¹s Purple Apples were full of glitz and glamour as the MK Illumination management team celebrated with the winners to mark their achievements within the real estate sector.

This year was Mk Illuminations first as the principal sponsor of the event as they lit up the Brewery London with bespoke decorations that captivated the guests.  The life size illuminated tree and giant sparkling baubles generated numerous pictures spread over social media and showcased the vast array of festive decorations the company provides to the industry.

The evening was attended by over 450 guests who enjoyed a delicious dinner and awards ceremony hosted by celebrity presenter Claudia Winkleman.

The highlight of the evening was the MK Illumination Santa Claus throne. The photo competition drew attention from 135 attendees which had their photos taken on the throne.

laus Mark, CEO of MK Illumination who attended commented  that the collaboration with the Purple Apples has been a worthwhile opportunity for MK Illumination and it was great that so many of our clients from across the UK were able to join us. We were proud to provide all of the decorations for the event and we are thrilled the guests who attended enjoyed them.

At MK Illumination we strive to be the best in our industry by leading the way in product innovation and craftsmanship while offering exceptional levels of customer service. We are proud to supply our festive decoration displays to high profile retail destinations and town centres in over 120 countries across the globe.

This year we have not only strengthened our highly skilled team, but expanded our portfolio, most notably in the UK, where we have been assigned over 100 new contracts, including many of the country’s highest profile shopping centres, following the closure of Fuzzwire last Christmas.

UK Sales Director Paul Dove, says: “The UK business has made significant strides in the last 12 months managing an exceptional and growing portfolio of centres.  Our focus now is to consolidate this growth and maintain the high levels of quality and service that have underpinned our success to date. We are fully committed to supporting clients impacted by the closure of Fuzzwire and delivering customer satisfaction and service excellence in the schemes that we develop for new and existing clients.”

At MK Illumination we take our reputation as a leading innovator in our industry very seriously. This is reflected in both our creative and realistic approach to design, the new production methods that we employ and our ability to create tailored schemes exclusively for our customers.

This year we have taken steps to consolidate our position at the forefront of the industry by inviting internationally renowned designers to join our team of Directors – see ‘Designing the future of Festive Lighting’ and ‘Meet the Team’ below. The appointment of experienced designers to our team will enable us to develop exciting products and design concepts with a fresh outlook and ensure we maintain our valuable record of delivering our schemes on time and according to budget.

As well as investing significantly in the UK market, we have also invested in new technology and modern production techniques which will allow us to create even greater concepts for our clients.

This year we are focused on expanding our product portfolio and working closely with our customers to develop bespoke schemes that will support their marketing strategy, attract footfall and increase the dwell time of shoppers.

We apply our local knowledge along with our global expertise and understanding of every venue that we decorate to ensure every scheme exceeds our clients’ expectations and fulfils their business objectives.

Our focus now is to consolidate this growth and maintain the high levels of quality and service that have underpinned our success to date.
