The Burnley bred event manager is capturing the popularity waves that are significant among events businesses across the UK. Ever in his dedicated attitude, Chris Sarchet Bell had formerly established himself in the nightlife business of event planning before delving into a redirection phase, capturing the attention of the U 18 fun-seekers across the country.
Chris’s brand is designated to suit the fun components of events that U18 seekers of fun and entertainment brew in their fantasy. Accordingly, his brand is dedicated to tackling this problem among the younger people before passing them over to his other brand, Grenade, which is specialized in organizing events for mature adults that are over 18 years.
While most brands are skeptical about their audience, Shutdown Events is leading the path through their innovative focus. As Chris unequivocally states regarding the reason behind his brand’s motivation to make younger people their prioritized audience “Because now more than ever the music/live events/concerts scene is bigger and more in demand than ever, especially with the younger generation”
The success story of Shutdown Events
Chris’s success story has not been without hiccups. As a young child, he lost his step dad and had to cater for his family. This rough patch in Chris’s childhood inspires his desire to promote fun and entertainment among individuals in his society.
Chris’s tenacity is evident in his approach in how he handles his failures and stays determined no matter the situation. He boldly states “I never give up, it took my 4 years before I made a penny, no matter what hurdles have been thrown at me over the last 6 years I always get back up and keep going and my determination is exactly why I am where I am today”
Slow but steady wins the race
Shutdown has given credence to the assertion that slow but steady wins the race. Amidst Chris’s rough start-up, he has managed to excel his brand amidst the stereotypes and the scepticism that acknowledged his innovation.
Chris recounts his success as he spearheaded his enigmatic team while building the legacy of shutdown. His story defines inspiration.
He tells us “Within the first 2 years Shutdown became the UK’s largest leading U18s brand! They now tour the country every couple of months from as high up as Scotland to as far down as Newquay hosting some of the most talked about events in the UK. These events include bringing some of the biggest names in the music industry, PA’s from some of the most popular reality tv shows, paint & foam parties, Co2 & confetti parties + much more. Shutdown has now hosted events across 10+ towns/cities nationwide”
While other event businesses are facing financial Armageddon because of the impact of the covid restrictions that haunted the growth of business last year, Shutdown still has high hopes in touring more countries across the country and making their way slowly into the hall of fame
