Hilton Smythe’s Ultimate Party Business Package

Hilton Smythe welcomes a range of exciting party business opportunities to the market.

There has been no shortage of Partygate headlines of late, with updates, statements, reports, and opinions being reported daily. In fact, Hilton Smythe’s very own stance on the situation has been made pretty clear. Rightfully, the public have been aggrieved at the injustice of these gatherings, and attitudes towards these unfair and illegal partying have been no less than enflamed. 

However, when it comes to sanctioned, safe, and legal gatherings, the court of public opinion has understandably been more lenient.  Around 6 in 10 (62%) adults met up or socialised indoors from the period of 6 to 16 January 2022. While the pandemic initially forced the entertainment and arts industry to move online, there’s no denying that as of today, public gatherings are less of a scandal, and more so a much-welcomed norm. As the public’s confidence in attending parties has been renewed, as have the business opportunities within the entertainment sector. 

At Hilton Smythe, we fully believe that there’s no better time than the present to enter the party and events market. While the pandemic has unfortunately caused many companies in the sector to close up shop, entrepreneurs are now best placed to make acquisitions to take advantage of a favourable buyer’s market, along with an increasing demand for these sorts of businesses amongst the public. 

That’s why we’ve made a point to spotlight some of our most exciting Party businesses, each offering something unique to a prospective buyer, while complementing each other should any buyer wish to make a series of related acquisitions. 

Spa Hire, Leeds – A Hot Tub Hire Party Business

The first business we’re spotlighting is Spa Hire, Leeds. As the name suggests, this business supplies hot tubs and spa equipment, and is the biggest hot tub hire company in Yorkshire, possessing more sets of equipment and boasting more hires in 12 months than any other competitor. The company has a range of additional services, such as candy floss, popcorn, and music machine hire, making for a fully versatile business, ideal for a large range of private or corporate events.

With additional room for expansion, the business is currently set up to service the entire Yorkshire region, having established many clients, contacts, and much repeat custom in the county. As it stands, the business is ripe for a quick change-of-hands, as new owners can take advantage of its existing business connections and stock, while also being suited to further growth. We fully believe that Spa Hire Leeds is a reliable yet exciting business for any prospective buyer – offering a unique opportunity to enter the party and events market by way of a bold brand.
