Marked Events CEO Mark Walsh has announced that the event organiser has gone into liquidation.
The company was behind the DJ and pro audio shows BPM and PRO, which it called time on in 2017 after 10 years.
Taking to Facebook to make the announcement, Walsh stated:
“It is with deep regret I announce that I have had to put Marked Events in to liquidation.
Last Friday was one of the saddest day of my life when I had to make six of the most talented people I know redundant.
I have worked tirelessly to save the company from bad years of trading and constant industry changes but it has simply not worked.
The 12 year journey has been amazing – we challenged the industry – put on the best shows in the world for our sector and delivered education to our visitors and readers. We changed lives.
I continue to work hard to make sure our products continue under new ownership and that the financial impact to the industry is mitigated.
Whilst I am sad, I am also immensely proud of the work myself and the team have achieved over the journey.
Thanks for the memories…”
Other events organised by the company include GIG, which is aimed as DJs, singers and bands, and LIVE, for sound and lighting engineers.
