The event-ful consultancy was established in July 2003 by Corinne Weatherup.
Corinne specialises in large scale, multi-faceted events and over the past 25 years has worked with almost every government department in Ireland, including Invest Northern Ireland (and its predecessor IDB), Tourism Northern Ireland, NI Assembly, the Northern Ireland Office, and many Councils across NI.
Prior to setting up event-ful, Corinne held the position of PR and events director with a local PR company. Corinne spent almost a decade with the company.
Appointed initially in 1994 as PR executive, she gained extensive experience working on a wide range of PR and design projects, before specialising in event management. She became events manager in 1996, and in 1997 set up the company's event management division.
Corinne furthered her publicity and event management experience working for a short term in the BBC Press Office, but returned to her former employer as PR and events director in May 1998. For six years Corinne was responsible for directing all client events, as well as training and developing the team and business generation.
Since setting up the event-ful consultancy in July 2003, she has, for the second time in her career, grown a strong and successful business within the events industry. event-ful has become the leading agency in the events sector with award winning projects and a noteworthy client base which includes private and public sector organisations.
