The winner of Hybrid Services' Sign & Digitak UK visitor competition was Martin Denton – partner at Signarama Manchester. Along with his customer, Ian Prost from The Cash Store, he joined Hybrid’s marketing manager, Duncan Jefferies, at Old Trafford for Manchester United’s opening Barclays Premier League game of the season against Tottenham Hotspur.
Signarama Manchester is part of the worlds largest sign group and specialises in producing signs and graphics for a broad range of clients. With over 950 branches throughout the world, Signarama carries out a full signage service including design, manufacture and installation of business, shop, and restaurant signs as well as a full range of colour graphics and banners. Denton’s branch covers Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire as well as servicing national corporate clients.
With a full VIP hospitality package forming part of the prize, the winners took the unique opportunity to venture pitch side, getting a managers’ eye view and taking in the impressive 75,000 seat stadium in all its late summer splendour. Returning to their table in the old boardroom; a four course meal and drinks preceded the game which turned out to be an end-to-end affair, benefitting from both teams’ attacking line-ups.
A 3-0 victory for the Red Devils meant the vast majority of the crowd left happy and with ex-United stars Wilf McGuinness and Stuart Pearson on hand back in the old boardroom to regale Hybrid’s guests with stories of previous glory days at Old Trafford, the experience was rounded off with the presentation of United’s two trophies from the 2010 season; the FA Community Shield and the Barclays Premiership.
