Black team crowned winners of 2017 M&IT Agency Challenge

A hilarious film featuring a bizarre romp between Donald Trump and Angela Merkel saw the black team take out this year’s M&IT Agency Challenge.

The team – Andrea Witt (Eclipse), Bianca Lewis (Inntel Ltd), Charlie Tanner (AOK Events), Gavin Farley (In2Events), Louis Ramsey (MCI UK Ltd), Lonneke Van Megen (RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre), Manuela Sanna (Mazagan Morocco), Melissa Fernandes (Butlin’s Conference & Events), Paul Tidy (Sandals & Beaches Resorts), Rachel Phillips (Celtic Manor Resort), Richard Money (Jurys Inn Group) and Zoe Cook (The Concerto Group) – were crowned the winners at the final gala dinner on Friday evening at Celtic Manor Resort.

Their film was voted best among judges in the video challenge, which tasked all nine teams to write, direct and act out a video with the theme of fake news. The black team’s live coverage of the discovery of the world leaders’ romp helped them seal the lead, beating the pink team in second place and orange in third. Blue, red and white tied fourth, while team yellow was seventh, purple was eighth and the green team was ninth.

The winners were announced at the gala dinner at the end of the challenge, on Friday evening. It brought an end to the two-day event, which was a mixture of supplier presentations, networking opportunities and challenges. As well as the video challenge, teams went head to head in It’s a Knock Out, laser pigeon shooting and archery, as well as racking up points from quiz questions from each supplier.

Black team member Gavin Farley said: “The challenge has been a brilliant two days. It’s been great to build relationships with fellow industry professionals, and you just can’t beat that. Our industry is based on relationships.”
