We’ve partnered with Sinead and Shell for the last few years on the City Spectacular. Their professionalism, positivity and pragmatism shines through making them a delight to work with. Plus, their knowledge and insight into festival sponsorship, event layout and crowd response is extremely helpful to ensure that we, as partners, were able to create stand-out activations that achieved our objectives in terms of footfall, dwell-time and engagement.
The team work under an ethos of better than best practice. Their enthusiasm is matched equally by their attention to detail. Great results only happen where great ideas meet expert executions – this is the essence of Best in Fest. You don’t have to be big to be brilliant.
We engaged Best in Fest to build sponsorship around the first Forever Young festival in 2019. Having come highly recommended, and with a tight available timeline, we met with Sinead & Shell to discuss our revenue ambitions. The girls were clear and transparent on what was achievable in the short time available. I’m delighted to say the results exceeded our expectations both in terms of revenues achieved and brands engaged at such short notice. It was pleasure to work with them; enthusiastic, professional and highly communicative throughout the process they even managing sponsors on site - a huge help in year one! I’ve no hesitation recommending them and look forward to working with them again in the future.
We have worked closely with Sinead and Shell since 2016 on our award winning activations at City Spectacular and Electric Picnic in 2017. Throughout the years, their energy, passion and creativity is only matched by their professionalism resulting in a better experience for Just Eat as a sponsorship partner but even more importantly, for all those attending the festivals, which is what it's all about.
We commissioned the Best in Fest team to develop and enhance our Kids Zone at Bloom 2019 (and were on track to work with them again in 2020) and were delighted with the results. The team introduced wonderful new programming elements to the area which elevated our visitor/family experience. As Bloom is a family-friendly event the Kids Zone is central to the visitor offering. Their creativity, enthusiasm and energy around the project was infectious and I would have no hesitation in working with them again.
Having worked as sponsors with Sinead and Shell, I was always impressed with their deep desire to understand our business challenges and core objectives. They are a highly creative team who operate to the highest possible standards. They share our partnership ethos and always take a collaborate approach to developing a creative and impactful activation.
Best in Fest ICON was an amazing gathering. Rarely does one get to have all of their peers in one place sharing and supporting each other. This is the sort of work that makes an industry stronger. An amazing job by the Best in Fest team.
We would like to acknowledge the Best in Fest team for their excellent and informative presentation they delivered at the Failte Ireland's Festivals Development Workshop in December 2019. We had previously worked with Shell and Sinead from Best in Fest and called upon their vast experience in Festival Sponsorship to present to Ireland's High Impact Festival Directors & Managers. Shell and Sinead were also on hand for the rest of the day to answer any further questions and share more of their festival experience on a one to one basis. I would have no hesitation in using the Best in Fest team for future workshops and would highly recommend them for their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm.
I was delighted to join the speaker panel at Best in Fest Icon in Dublin. The event provided a fantastic opportunity to share the story of Glastonbury from our earliest days charting our challenges and achievements along the way. The team secured a stellar line up of speakers from the likes of Burning Man, Edinburgh Fringe, Cheltenham Festival and Chelsea Flower Show which gave the audience unique access to best in class knowledge and experience. A great day for all involved, the Best in Fest team managed all aspects seamlessly from initial reach out to the day itself and beyond. Delighted to recommend them and wish them the very best for the future.
