Thank you once again for breathing life into Grand Designs Live. Once more it magically sprang into being with amazing vitality. The vibe was great and it is, I think, entirely down to you and your team and the integrity that you bring to the show. I am immensely grateful.
Kevin McCloud, TV presenter Grand Designs Live
We were simply delighted with the results that Nicole Cooper and her company Blue Inc achieved on the Grand Designs Live exhibition. Nicole is an outstanding exhibition organiser and a great team player. She is extremely competent in managing the many and complex commercial, editorial and logistical issues involved in putting on an exhibition – especially the launch edition of a ground breaking consumer show – and from our client perspective got everything working seamlessly. She handled our talent (to translate TV-speak, our stars) very well, interpreted our brand outstandingly and on practical matters was responsive, sensitive and outstandingly efficient. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her or her company again and would recommend them without hesitation.
Alex Mahon, Commercial Director, Talkback THAMES TV
It has been a pleasure working with the Blue Inc Events team on Grand Designs Live. You are a passionate, imaginative and extremely hard working group of lovely people. Working in partnership with Blue Inc enabled us to exceed expectations for our feature and to connect powerfully with the audience.
Kate Will, PR Manager, Christian Aid
Blue Inc Events design flair brings style and elegance to business. The company has a marvellous and very enjoyable knack of coming up with the right idea, which will also have excellent design execution and solid business logic. Combine that with their precise attention to detail and reassuring flexibility, and you have a company that is a delight to work with.
Neill Swan, Marketing Director, Johnson Matthey
I particularly enjoyed working with the Blue Inc team and am convinced that they made a thoroughly valuable contribution to our business. They are efficient, thorough and organised – a pleasure to work with.

On 100% Design Seminars ‘Lots of people commented on the high quality of the 100% Design Seminar programme and it is great that you invest so much in ensuring that there is a cultural dimension to the exhibition. If you need a chair for a talk again next year – count me in!’
Alice Rawsthorn, Director, the Design Museum
On the Design Innovation Award (DIA): “Lonmin are delighted to be sponsoring the Design Innovation Award. The DIA has grown outstandingly since its launch in 2003, and has developed into a highly respected project to promote and support emerging designers whilst encouraging them to work more in platinum. It has undoubtedly contributed to the phenomenal growth in platinum jewellery demand in the UK, where the platinum and jewellery industries have cooperated to double the market in the last three years.”
Fraser King, Lonmin
On The Ultimate Pet Show: ‘I have had the pleasure of working with Nicole over the last 3 years. During this period I have found her dependable, organised and efficient. Her problem solving abilities are compounded with common sense and practical solutions. She has very good strategic and marketing skills, with particular ability to deliver an audience’.

“Fashion Press Week provided Fat Face with the perfect platform to ensure our new collection was viewed by all our key press. To be part of such a fantastic industry event alongside likeminded brands was a brilliant experience for us. The event was flawlessly created and with over 400 press attending the exposure for Fat Face exceeded expectations. We are already planning for the next event!”
