High-Rise Communications can help with every aspect of the event management process – making sure your corporate event runs smoothly.  We combine our event planning expertise with our strategic communications support to make sure your guests have a great experience and importantly that your event is also aligned to your communications key messages.

From securing a venue and booking speakers to managing ticket bookings, sorting out the AV, inviting journalists and managing social media on the day – we can provide corporate event support however and whenever you need it most. We have excellent relationships with dozens of venues and event suppliers. We know the questions to ask from your venue to make sure everything runs as you want it and so that there are no nasty surprises on the day or when it comes to the budget for your event.

The earlier you bring us in to provide event management support the better our help can be. But even if you’ve already booked the venue and started planning your event itinerary we can still make a difference when it comes to your event management plans.


Video produced for Mayor of Greater Manchester’s Fundraising Ball

We combine our event management expertise with our ability to make high quality corporate video productions. For example, High-Rise produced a video specifically for Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham’s fundraising ball in November 2018 featuring The Men’s Room charity in Manchester. It explained the difference the People’s Powerhouse movement can make in tackling issues such as homelessness and welcomed the Mayor’s efforts to shine a spotlight on the homelessness problem and raise funds through the Bed Every Night campaign.

Video produced for Greater Manchester Talent Match event at Gorton Monastery

As part of the event and communications support we provided to Greater Manchester Talent Match we produced a film for the charity’s end of programme event which took place in the stunning Gorton Monastery. The video tells Matt’s story and the difference the charity has made supporting him into employment.


High-Rise Communications are regularly asked to film convention and conference video highlights packages. These are carefully thought through before the day itself to make sure we think carefully about key messages and make the most of the opportunities the event provides. The People’s Powerhouse asked High-Rise to film at its 2018 Convention in Bradford, with a focus on explaining why the People’s Powerhouse movement is needed. This included interviews with members of the steering group including IPPR North, CLES as well as delegates attending on the day.
