Web Design for MGN Events
MGN, based in Surrey are one of the UK’s leading event production and design companies, organising a wide range of creative and immersive corporate and private events across the UK. Corporate clients include an impressive list of household names such as trainline, waitrose and itv. MGN also offer a huge range of technical event equipment in their warehouse in Surrey, such as lighting, sound, AV and decor.
b:web have been working with MGN for more than 5 years and this version of the website will have been the 3rd complete overhaul that we have produced. The brief was to produce a very high-end visual experience that would communicate brand values and help set clients expectations. The website project included a small brand refresh.
Underpinning the success of the project would be not only a stunning design but strong SEO foundations and a strategy to migrate existing keywords over the the new platform.
Client Portal Development
As one of the leading event management companies, MGN always use technology to stay ahead of the competition. We have recently launched a new secure client web portal to help MGN coordinated their events. The portal manages the bulk of the client onboarding and allows the party organisers to set party preferences for details like dietary requirements, music preferences and to manage RSVPs.
Delegates are invited to use the client portal to view and download the professional event photography. The client portal was designed using a mobile-first approach and has been developed from the ground up using the TwistPHP framework. The client portal streamlines the MGN client communications, allows MGN to stay compliant with GDPR and also add extra value to their event delegates and customers.
Web Design Solution
Having worked with MGN on 2 prior iterations of the website we have accommodated plenty of meetings at our web design studio based in Surrey. We had a large quantity of data to help understand how the current website was performing. We started by looking at the sitemap and keywords to create a content strategy and new structure that would build on the main assets already gained.
With a strong content strategy we were able to produce a visual sitemap of all of the pages to indicate how the user would move through the sections and navigate the content. Each page visual was designed using the new brand refresh elements and content created to visually tell the story of experience an MGN party.
The results are a truly stunning website which generated leads, post launch, far exceeding all expectations. b:web are currently working with MGN on a bespoke customer portal which will allow event delegates to access all event information, including professional photography. We continue to support MGNs content strategy with ongoing SEO.
Web Design Testimonial
“b:web were really helpful and insightful with the SEO optimisation for our website. They clearly explained some essential SEO do’s and dont’s and useful tips. The specific pages that the team optimised are performing at number 1 in the natural organic search rankings, no mean feat for a competitive field in which we operate! And as a result we are seeing great benefit. I am confident as a result of this initial SEO work, our return on investment has been tenfold. I would highly recommend b:web for any friends, customers or suppliers future projects.”
