Global events contractor Trans-Sport.tv celebrates its 20th birthday on Friday 25th October.
The events business was first created by husband and wife team, Shaun and Helen Cope in 1999. Managing Director Shaun’s background is in engineering starting his career as an Agricultural Technician with family run business Ray Bingley, still operating on the same site as RBM Agricultural, Retford. After finishing his apprenticeship Shaun set up as a sole trader repairing agricultural machinery on local farms, then diversifying into HGV’s.
When dropping off some supplies on a job, Shaun overheard a conversation asking if a camera bracket could be inserted into the pocket of a snooker table and heard that it ‘couldn’t be done’. Not one to be phased by a challenge, Shaun persuaded the client to let him go home, create the bracket and bring it back for install the next day.
And as they, the rest was history…
Helen’s background is predominately in business finance with a lifelong involvement in small family businesses after growing up on her parents small holding working weekends and holidays in their award-winning family farm shop. Helen also supported both her brothers as they created their own business enterprises. With son and daughter William and Rosie joining the management team in 2015, the family business has continued to grow, delivering exceptional events across the globe.
The business has grown through reputation and word of mouth with Trans-Sport.tv working alongside industry leading brands such as IMG, Matchroom Multi Sport, Sky Sports and Sunset + Vine, as well as organising an annual festival in Treswell raising money for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
Trans-Sport.tv are extremely proud of their Nottinghamshire heritage and over the past 20 years have continuously invested in their employees and infrastructure to become a leading supplier in the media events industry operating on a global platform.
