LIAQBELL MAKE AWARDS SHORTLIST
Offaly based event-planning specialists LIAQBELL are celebrating making the shortlist for this year’s MIDLANDS 103 Customer Service Awards, just weeks after having the honour of decorating one of the most famous locations in Ireland, the historic ROUND ROOM of the MANSION HOUSE in Dublin.
LiaQbell, whose motto is ‘Making Memories Magic’, certainly seem to be doing exactly that for their clients around the midlands, with founder SANDRA CONWAY able to raise a glass to being nominated in this year’s Wedding Accessories & Decor Company of the Year category. The overall winner will be announced at a gala black-tie event at the Midlands Park Hotel in Portlaoise on July 4th.
Speaking after receiving confirmation of LiaQbell’s place on the awards shortlist, Sandra spoke about her excitement and gratitude at the news, but also made clear her passion for what LiaQbell is all about…
“I’m so happy to have been nominated, this is a beautiful moment for me. So the first thing I want to do is say the biggest thank-you to everyone who took the time to vote for me. Without everyone who nominated LiaQbell, I wouldn’t be able to experience this great feeling today. LiaQbell exists to make people happy, to do everything possible to make sure that our clients’ most special moments become some of their most magical memories. We work so hard to make this happen, but we also have so much fun meeting the most amazing people along the way!”
“And of course”, Sandra continued, “I must express my gratitude as well to all of the judges who have compiled the shortlist. I have so much respect for what they have all done and achieved in their careers, so for them to even acknowledge LiaQbell like this is something that means a lot to me. I can’t wait for the big night next month. I think everyone there will be winners in their own right, so we will all make sure to celebrate no matter what happens!”
Making the Midlands 103 Customer Service Awards shortlist is the second significant milestone for Sandra and LiaQbell in the last few months. At the end of March LiaQbell decorated the historic Round Room of Dublin’s Mansion House for the Olympic Federation of Ireland’s Olympic Ball, a special event to honour athletes who represented Ireland across the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games and the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Among those honoured on the night were gold medal winners Kellie Harrington and rowing pair Paul O’ Donovan and Fintan McCarthy.
The Round Room was designed in 1821 to receive King George IV, and hosted the first ever meeting of Dáil Eireann in 1919. The Round Room has also welcomed guests such as Pope John Paul II, Nelson Mandela, Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace of Monaco, and Queen Victoria over the years.
“When I first walked in there”, recalled Sandra, smiling, “I remember thinking…wow! Big room! But it was so spectacular, too. It was a real honour for me to be able to make that night for our Irish Olympic heroes something extra-special for them to enjoy! And for LiaQbell to become a small part of that remarkable venue’s history in our own way at the same time.”
