Last year as part of The Build Show 2017, Easy-Trim decided on a Las Vegas themed stand to run alongside our “Why Gamble?” – British Manufacturing marketing theme. Visitors to the Easy-Trim stand had the chance to try their luck on our one-armed bandit where numerous prizes were up for grabs, however; the one everyone wanted to get their hands on was the holiday of a lifetime – a trip to Las Vegas!
For one person their luck that day was well and truly in! Julie Mepham, a Procurement Support Officer for the Orbit Group struck gold and won the trip to Las Vegas. The Orbit Group are a leading housing provider, who provide high quality but good value homes to thousands of customers in the Midlands, East and South East of England. Julie could not believe her luck; emotions ran high as she desperately asked around for reassurance that it was real! It was safe to say she was absolutely ecstatic at this once in a lifetime trip.
After a lot of planning, everything was booked and the dates confirmed. Most recently husband and wife returned from the trip to tell us all about it, Julie said, “My husband and I had a wonderful time in Las Vegas. We visited the Grand Canyon and hired a car to go and see Hollywood for a day! There was so much to see and the weather was absolutely gorgeous. We would like to thank Kirsha for planning the trip and making sure it went smoothly and of course, thank you to Easy-Trim for giving us this fantastic prize!”
Described as the place of million-light bulb signs and fantastic architecture, Las Vegas has signs of readily visible wealth. It grew from a tiny, desert-bound railroad service centre at the outset of the 20th Century and into the country’s fastest-growing metropolis at the end. The transformation made possible by a combination of entrepreneurship, access to water, an extensive transportation network, and permissive state laws. As a result, this has now created the city now often known simply as “Vegas,” a place of vast casinos, elaborate hotels, and spectacular entertainment venues that attract masses of visitors from throughout the world.
Julie then went on to say, “It certainly was a holiday we will never forget and it was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end. We created irreplaceable memories.”
