A bit more about Gary…
The Seventeen43 Limited business was founded by Gary Williams in September of 2015 after Gary decided to leave his senior corporate role in one of leading banks for past 25 years. Gary continues to live with his family in the beautiful countryside of Staffordshire and works with a remote support of Event Management team of helpers. Gary’s daily inspiration stems from years of volunteering to organise events in his local village to help support the community with village days, numerous charity events, sporting days out and quiz nights to mention a few…
Understanding that there was a wider community of event opportunities that would make a difference in the Staffordshire area and beyond, though the power of events, Gary loves bringing people together, creating that social able occasions and fantastic experiences. Seventeen43 Limited quickly evolved to become a formal event management company so whatever your requirements are, we can plan the perfect personalised event for you.
A word from Gary… “In a world that continues to be unsociable due to over reliance and the ease of technology, my aim is to continue to bring people together through the power of events for enjoyable & social experiences, by creating memories that will be fondly looked back on.”
Whether you are looking for help to arrange a special celebration, create a successful charity event or want to simply bring people together for business or pleasure, then Seventeen43 can create the perfect bespoke experience to suit all budgets.

“Massive shout out to Gary Williams @ Seventeen43: I have had the pleasure to attend two of his events (Award Ceremony night and GO Karting ) and the greater pleasure to work alongside with him on two sport events: it's the same every time: Smooth event throughout. Everything organised from start to finish. Attention to every detail you can (or actually can't) think of A determination to ensure that all guests are having the best possible time, and giving host(s) peace of mind. Gary is also exceptionally good at organising attendance of parties to festivals or sportive events (to name just two), and will endeavour to provide you with the best tickets at the best available price, all wrapped up in a smile. If you are thinking of attending or organising any kind of event but are unsure about how to get it done, think no more - give Gary Williams a call ”

“"I have used Gary and Seventeen43 Event Management on numerous occasions to provide tickets and transport for various popular sporting events where it would have been very difficult to organise myself. These are notably tickets to The Ashes at Edgbaston, Championship Darts and several trips to Cheltenham on Gold Cup Day. Before the day Gary has provided me with all the relevant information on the event itself, organised transport to and from the event, provided tickets for entry and has always managed to secure us good seats and views. In every case the entry and transport has cost us less than if I had tried to organise the trip myself. The whole process of dealing with Gary and Seventeen43 is a painless one from start to finish. He is a consummate professional and it is obvious that he really enjoys what he does. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone who is interested in using him to organise something specific or indeed in going on one of the events that has is already being advertised." ”

Mr H from Rugeley
“We recently hosted a corporate open day at midland karting with Gary from Seventeen43 who organised the clients that were to attend along with catering facilities for the event. Gary was fantastic in every aspect of the process and communication with us from day 1 right through to the event date. Gary hosted the event on the day which was very well organised and I look forward to further events later this year. ”

Gary pays meticulous attention to detail to ensure your day runs smoothly and you enjoy every moment. From advice on footwear for adverse weather conditions; a comfortable and friendly coach trip, delicious breakfast included and also timed to perfection to arrive early to soak up the atmosphere. I would highly recommend speaking with Gary if you wish to organise a special event or attend one that he is organising”
