"On behalf of Linda, AnneMarie and myself, I wanted say a huge thank you to the entire Comms Team. It was great to have so many of you together in Belfast and create an opportunity for us to showcase the strength of our team. The collaboration amongst us and with other parts of the organization in the lead up to the show and on site was superb. It was the biggest MTV EMA we've ever put on with three stages and a multitude of surrounding events.
