Energy Voice is pleased to announce that tickets for the Energy Ball, Aberdeen’s premier oil and gas get-together, are now being made available with a 10% discount.
The event, being held on Saturday, October 3, will have a strong gold theme running through it as it celebrates the 50th anniversary of the industry in the North of Scotland.
Tables of 10 are now on sale and Energy Voice has been given the chance to offer these at a special rate of £1,790.
The Energy Ball – in association with CHC Helicopter – is being supported by our sister paper The Press and Journal this year – as it commits to continue celebrating the successes and bright future of the oil and gas sector here in the North of Scotland, 50 years after oil first started pumping out of the North Sea.
More than 1,400 people attended last year’s sumptuous black tie event, held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, with a spectacular dinner and host of entertainment.
It’s open to anyone who is involved, either directly or indirectly, with the industry, or wants to be part of the success story.
This year, the event is going to be more exclusive than ever before and for the first time in Scotland, Swan Band is travelling direct from France to perform throughout the night.
This amazing 14-strong band – favoured by a host of celebrities as their “wedding band” and chosen by Kenny Dalglish to star at his private charity party – will offer Aberdeen something that’s never been seen in the city before.
Swan Band has performed at top events including: The Champions League Cup Final in Moscow; Manchester United FA Cup Finals; for Prince Albert of Monaco; At a private 60th birthday in Istanbul for a Hong Kong entrepreneur; and at Compare the Market awards balls for the last five years.
Aberdeen Journals Editor-In-Chief Damian Bates said that it was important that The P&J and the whole community came together to celebrate 50 years of oil and gas in the North Sea – a sector that has done so much for the north of Scotland, despite the tough times it currently finds itself facing.
“It is easy to sit back and complain about the tough times we face and, yes, it’s not nice out there at the moment, but this sector can and should have a very bright future.
“I’m delighted that our friends at CHC Helicopter, Statoil, Balmoral, Bond, Dandara, ITC Hydrolics, Mattioli Woods, Panalpina and Sky Futures believe the same as we do and want to join forces with The Press and Journal to invite you to join us at this amazing event; the biggest and best of its kind in Scotland.
“This is the best night of the year for the industry to show all the doom mongers that the sector is still very much alive and kicking, and will be with us for decades to come.
“There is no better way to network with peers and show the world how great, resilient and vibrant this industry is.”
From the entrance to the entertainment, the Energy Ball 2015 has been given a complete makeover all the while retaining its core themes: fine food, great dancing and the chance for everyone to enjoy themselves and let their hair down.
The P&J, in consultation with CHC, has also decided that this year the official charity of Aberdeen Royal Children’s Hospital, the ARCHIE Foundation, and Wings for Warriors – that helps injured servicemen find roles outside the armed forces – will be the beneficiaries of any charitable giving on the night.
ARCHIE is currently fundraising for its High 10 appeal to rejuvenate and enhance the hospital 10 years after The P&J helped raise the money to build the facility that treats children from across the North of Scotland.
Everyone who takes a table is being urged to reach out to some of the younger members of their teams and encourage them to join in the festivities.
