Carlisle Ambassadors go live with Hashtag Events and Balloon

Hashtag Events recently had the honour of taking Carlisle Ambassadors ( regular and marketing meetings into the digital era.

Given the ongoing restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a physical meeting wasn’t feasible. After turning to Hashtag Events to help deliver the event, the Balloon online events platform was selected for the delivery of the event. Speakers were sourced and organised by Carlisle Ambassadors, led by Michelle Masters ( a local marketing expert and Debbie Kavanagh from Carlisle City Council.

Most of the presentations were pre-recorded for broadcast on the day with live Q & A sessions. Filming was delivered in HD by Danny Fowler of D & H Photographers ( and Hashtag Events took care of the rest.

Over 300 local businesses participated and enjoyed a great day of networking, workshops, keynotes and discussion.
