Conservatory Outlet Recognises Its Network With a Special Gala Weekend


Conservatory Outlet celebrates its 8th Gala Dinner Weekend with a historic trip to London.

Wakefield-based fabricator Conservatory Outlet marked 12 months of growth this weekend by saying “thank you” to its 27-strong network of retailers.

The multi-day event, which culminated with a Gala Dinner at the historic Tower of London, recognises the achievements of companies that have overcome the many challenges of the pandemic to post record sales and harness new technology to improve the customer journey even further.

The evening began with a tour of the historic palace, which included a private viewing of the Crown Jewels and a guided walk along the Line of Kings, followed by a three-course meal and awards ceremony in the White Tower.

Greg Kane, CEO at Conservatory Outlet Group, opened proceedings by thanking the Network members for their support over the past two years before commemorating several key achievements across the Group during what has been a difficult period.

“The last 20 months have been tough; they’ve been tough for everyone. Yet we don’t stand alone: we stand as a tight nit unit of nearly 30 companies facing up to a tsunami of challenges,” said Greg Kane.

The newest member of the Conservatory Outlet family, Speedy Home Improvements, was formally welcomed as part of the celebrations.

Based in Horsham, Speedy was singled out for its tremendous start to life as part of the Network after it achieved a 30% increase in sales and invested £100,000 into its first-ever showroom.

Following a series of other presentations, long-standing Network member Joedan was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award to honour the company’s founding partners, John and Nicky Purcaro’s, 36th year in the sector.

The night closed with an exclusive after-dinner party thrown at The Reveller, a dedicated events space nestled between the banks of the Thames and the Tower walls.

Michael Giscombe, Conservatory Outlet Managing Director, said that the event proved to be another huge success for the Network and showcased the group’s resilience.

“The weekend has been phenomenal, arguably the best we’ve ever held. Being a Network allows us to host events without any fear of competition between our members.”

He continued: “Given how the last 18 months have been, our collaborative approach to sales and marketing has been invaluable, allowing companies to flourish where others have floundered.

“We pride ourselves on this close-knit and collective relationship across the Group and will continue to leverage this ‘togetherness’ as we emerge from the shackles of the pandemic and a difficult supply chain environment.”
