Connection Crew wins the Social Enterprise Award at the Exhibition News Supplier Awards 2023!

Connection Crew are proud to be recognised as *the* social enterprise supplying events and exhibitions.

We’re more than just your expert pair of hands, building some of the biggest and most creative events and exhibitions going (think the Coronation, Jurassic World Exhibition, MAD Fest…). We’re  also driving positive change by supporting people who have experiences – or are at risk – of homelessness to access training, mentoring, and jobs. 

Every client and project supports people into work, providing opportunities for crew to work, learn, and stretch their skills (both in crewing and developing softer skills too.)  

Awarded the Social Enterprise Award at the Exhibition News Supplier Awards, we’re over the moon to be recognised for the hard work our team and crew puts into building awesome events and making meaningful impact happen at the same time. 

This winning combination led our clients to comment… 

We love working with Connection Crew. The events we do with them – from Ride London, the London Marathon and this year the Coronation – have been fantastic….We work with them not just because they are great, but because they do critical work to help people access jobs, and the social impact we help create matters to us. We’re proud to work with them and look forward to continuing our relationship.” 

Hannah Bladstock,


We’ve worked with Connection Crew for many years and in this time, they have helped us to deliver spectacular exhibitions and events…The company’s commitment to delivering positive impact for people through crew opportunities is a brilliant  proposition, coupled with their increasing focus on sustainability, means that they also deliver for us as a way to do good through our supply chain too.” 

 Carl Miller,
E1 Productions + Event Operations Ltd. 


“Connection Crew are an established, commercially aware business that have proven themselves to be adaptable and professional…Their drive, passion and capability is as fantastic as the impact they are having on the lives of homeless people.” 


Su Pickerill,
Wates Group 

Since we launched in 2005, we’ve supported 381 people who have experiences of homelessness or faced barriers to work to join our crew. Together, they’ve delivered over 200,000 hours of work for our clients.

We’re here to deliver excellence for our clients and impact for the people we work with, and in 2023 we’re on an award-winning roll to do even bigger and better. Watch this space!
