Conservatory Outlet recently celebrated its 10th annual Network Gala Dinner by spoiling its Premium Retailers with an exclusive and luxurious weekend retreat in North Yorkshire.
Guests were also treated to a fantastic day in York, with many taking advantage of the chance to visit the city’s numerous attractions, such as the Minster, Clifford’s Tower and the Roman walls.
Held at Aldwark Manor, key stakeholders from the Conservatory Outlet Network joined to celebrate their achievements over the past twelve months and to hear about the manufacturer’s plans for 2024 and beyond.
They learned of Conservatory Outlet’s continued investment in its marketing and sales initiatives, further enhancements to the company’s leading range of Forte composite doors and the impending launch of smart sensors on its popular Extreme UPVC collection.
The weekend’s highlight came on Saturday night, as the historic Aldwark Manor hosted the showpiece Gala Dinner and Network Awards ceremony.
During the celebrations, unique gifts were given to Network members Bon Accord Glass, TWC Home Improvements, TradeMark Windows, County – The Home Improvers, Mid Wales Windows & Conservatories and Premier Windows & Conservatories, with the latter two companies being honoured for their fifteen-year membership of the Conservatory Outlet Network. These anniversary awards showcase a remarkable testament to the longstanding relationship that Conservatory Outlet has with its key regional retail partners.
Awards for Outstanding Customer Service were also given to those rated excellent (4.5) or above on public review platforms such as Google and Trustpilot.
Greg Kane, Conservatory Outlet’s CEO, noted that the event was another huge success and showcased the Network’s growth over the past twelve months.
“The weekend has been outstanding, arguably our best yet,” Greg began.
“The Network Gala Dinner allows us to thank those we work closely with for their continued support. This year’s event was our tenth such celebration. It speaks volumes about the close relationship[ we have with our retail partners that we can celebrate together as friends year after year.
“Trading conditions across the industry continue to be tough, with inflation continuing to impact on consumer spending. However, our shared values and togetherness have delivered tangible results that ensure our Network members remain ahead of the competition.”
The night closed with an exclusive afterparty featuring live music and a DJ, with guests soaking up the atmosphere into the early hours.
Conservatory Outlet Managing Director Michael Giscombe added: “Aldwark was the perfect venue for this year’s celebrations. After visiting bustling cities such as London, Barcelona and Paris in recent years, we wanted to provide a change of pace.”
“It’s always an honour to host our guests and recognise their fantastic achievements,” Mick added.
But for us and our guests, it’s not just an opportunity to network or an awards ceremony; it’s more like a family reunion! We’re already looking forward to next year’s event.”
