MGN events has a vision to be THE leading private and corporate events agency in the South East, serving clients across the UK. We exist to create and deliver memorable experiences, and provide superior event services where customers recommend us to their family and friends; venues and suppliers refer us to their clients; and employees are proud of.
Back in 2008, Directors Mike and Neil worked as freelancers in the events industry, Mike working in the late night entertainment industry and Neil in the corporate events world, specialising in Lighting. As brothers hungry for success, we had a vision to bring both sets of skills together to create an exciting and fresh events company that provided an excellent service to both corporate and private clients for their events and parties.
MGN events went limited in 2011 and the company has seen consistent growth each and every year, through continued reinvestment in personnel, products and services. With a team of six full time professionals and a recent move to a brand new warehouse and office space in late 2015 – The future is looking positive and very exciting.
Why MGN events?

Every event is as special to us as it is to you. With a strong team of individuals and large knowledge base of the event industry, MGN events strive to make every event, no matter what size, a huge success.
Meet the team
Mike- Managing Director
Co-founder and Managing Director of MGN events, a keen investor in other SME businesses, and also a business mentor.
After graduating from Loughborough University and beginning my career in the late night entertainment industry provided me with a solid foundation to start my own business back in 2008. My role as a full time professional club DJ and promotions & marketing manager was the perfect skill set required for starting an events business.
Alongside my love for music and a passion for creating memorable experiences, MGN events, a family business was born. Eight years on, I am very proud of what MGN events has become and excited where it is going.
The pace and movement of the industry always inspires and excites me and it is a pleasure to be able to run and manage a flexible and responsive events business through the constantly changing event industry while seeking new ways in which to engage and inspire audiences and create a better journey for each customer. Myself and the whole team at MGN events like to think we are very approachable and i’d be delighted to connect with you to discuss how MGN events can not only help, but also add value to your next event.
