The Showman's Show 2016

We’re happy to confirm that we will once again be in attendance at the Showman’s Show on the 19th & 20th October.

We’re also pleased to announce that Festiwork, a unique start-up specializing in organising large groups of presentable, committed students and young workers will be joining us at the Showman’s Show this year. They will be joining us to ensure that we do not neglect our colleagues in Europe!

You can find us at stand number 193 – Avenue D.

We’ll have tea, coffee and ale on standby so come and say hello!

We made it…

This summer season has come and gone in a flash and has proven to be the busiest yet for DC Site Services.

We have increased the number of Events & Festivals we provided our services to by almost 50% compared to last year.

By the end of last year we had provided Waste Management & Cleaning, Traffic Management and Stewarding services to eighty four different Events & Festivals. This year, we have surpassed this mark and serviced one hundred and twenty eight Events & Festivals with more on the horizon as we move into autumn and winter.

The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration

Moving into Autumn & Winter…

With the bulk of the season behind us we’d like to remind all event organisers that your feedback is not only greatly appreciated, but helps us to better meet your requirements and fulfil your needs for future bookings. With that in mind, we will be sending out our Client Surveys in the near future and would value your input. Please keep an eye out for this survey coming within the next few months.

If you’d like to complete the Client Survey sooner rather than later then please click the below link to get a head start on everyone else…

ISO Accreditation

ISO AccreditationIn our previous Newsletter we discussed our goals to become fully ISO accredited. Our heavy workload this year will be utilised and has helped us in gathering evidence needed towards attaining this accreditation.

We are fully committed to this endeavour and hope to become fully accredited by the end of 2017.

The goal posts have moved, but the aim remains the same, to “make excellence a habit…”

Future Endeavours…

We are already looking towards 2017 and our aspirations for future seasons. In our next newsletter we hope to announce our intentions to expand our Operations team by bringing in new electronic systems to monitor our equipment and inventory and additional, qualified staff to drive this.

DC Site Services also hopes to continue to provide services to not only existing and new UK clients, but will also be opening our portfolio to the European festival market, actively looking to engage with promoters from overseas.

If we don’t see you at the Showman’s Show then we hope to work with you again soon!
