Inaugural summer ball

Insight Data and Purplex Marketing, both part of the Ascot Group, recently joined forces to host the first Ascot Summer Ball.

The event brought together people from across the glazing and construction industry for an evening that included a gala dinner, a live show and musicians.

The event was held on the Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier, which has completed a £53 million refurbishment. Doors closed to the public to give Ascot Summer Ball guests exclusive access to the indoor theme park, which includes a full-sized go-kart track.

The invitation-only event connected guests into the wider business community, with a guest list that included directors of banks, venture capital and private equity firms, national business media, entrepreneurs who have sold or floated their companies, as well as representatives from brands such as Aston Martin, BMW and Porsche.

Andrew Scott, managing director of the Ascot Group, said: “This is a £4 billion industry and we wanted an event that brought together the real business leaders, those shaping the industry now and in the future. It was an opportunity to dine in style, enjoy a very special evening and network with like-minded entrepreneurs and an exclusive club of highly influential people.”
