Identity is the characteristics you have that distinguish you from others... (Collins Dictionary)
I.D. Events Ltd
I.D. Events Ltd was the brainchild of Paul & Jane Manton who, having spent thirty years in the event & Exhibition industry, wanted to further enhance the service they could offer their clients. The depth of knowledge at all levels, the enviable contacts gained, and the desire to supply unique value to any project led them to form a company that put its clients needs before anything else.
The acronym I.D. of course originates from the word "identity", which not only represents who we are but also our ability to recognize the personality & ambitions of our clients. To identify with people both on a personal and business level was foremost in their minds when researching a name for the company.
The mission statement was therefore a simple one, place the customers needs first and everything else will take care of itself. Our ideology is not about maximizing profits or finding the cheapest solution, but bringing a level of value, service and professionalism to each project that will ultimately bring its own success.
It is our fortune to have secured a network of experienced & talented designers, tradesmen, suppliers and associated organisations that enable us to successfully complete and compete for projects around the globe. We’re passionate about bringing these resources to market and very much look forward to the opportunities ahead.
With a history of commercial construction and shopfitting dating back to the late 1800’s the Manton's have certainly been in the business for a while. Paul began his working life with his Grandfather, Edward Clayton Manton, who was a well known and respected businessman around the local region. Edward was a hard task master and strongly believed youngsters should work from the bottom upwards. Paul was no exception to the rule and started his career digging holes and loading skips.
A combination of studies and hands on experience ensued for some years until Paul's Father, Warren Manton, setup an exhibition design & construction company. The variation in design, construction techniques, fast paced deadlines, fashion & comprehensive project management captivated and excited Paul, and so he joined his Father in this new business venture.
The proceeding years were full of responsibility for a relatively young man who thrust himself into many different aspects of the exhibition and event industry. After the retirement of his Father and promotion to Managing Director the company continued to grow into an established and well-respected organisation.
After thirty years, a desire to offer clients a more individual and unique option led to the formation of I.D. Events Ltd. It is with much excitement & appreciation for our customers, partnerships and relationships that we look forward to the future.
Jane also has thirty years experience in the events industry and enjoys excellent client liaison skills, venue knowledge and supplier rapport. Whilst husband Paul conveys technical & Project Management abilities Jane’s forte lies with communication, logistics and an enviable focus on getting the job done with minimum fuss.
Whether your event is based in the UK, or cities such as Cape Town, Dubai, Gothenburg, Hannover, Moscow to name but a few, it’s likely Jane has previously managed the logistics involved in getting you and your goods to the venue. Likewise, an uncanny flair for sourcing the right solution in the right environment at the right price point is something not everyone can achieve with success.
As a mum of three children who are all starting to mature and find their own destiny, Jane now finds time to explore new business challenges and looks forward to delivering successful event solutions to both existing and future acquaintances.
