The Business…

What do they do?

National Events Support (NES) is an event staffing agency and equipment supplier, supplying professional lighting and sound to the live events industry.

Why they started the business…

With the events industry being so unique, it can often be difficult to find employment and so they came together to create something with their range of skills that they also enjoyed doing. For the founders, the freedom of running and owning your business appealed. The ability to have control over how they worked and use their skills in their own way.

Their Unique Selling Point…

For NES, their main USP is the staffing agency side of their business, something many suppliers in the events industry do not have. Additionally, they go the extra mile by providing stage design packages, creating custom designs for the events they are involved in.

Why Did They Choose Hull Youth Support Trust?

Since joining HYST we have had a lot of development, having opportunities to work with the council and growing our staff to fifteen but what we find most appealing is the staff, to have that extra level of support and to be able to talk to them about any issues. Being in the centre has also meant being able to network and speak to other businesses, because as freelancers in the events industry, we are do not see anyone outside of work.
