More Conal memories

In June, Conal’s birthday month, we bring you more memories from the last 20 years.

Remember that our birthday gift to event organizers is an automatically applied 30% discount on all paid promotions until the end of June 2020!

We care for the environment, so installed solar panels at our offices about 5 years ago, and our offices now run solely on solar power.

We began a sponsorship program around this time as well to to encourage a healthy lifestyle for staff members. We know that even though large sporting activities have been curtailed by Covid-19; Conal staff continue to train at home, and in public areas where social distancing is possible.

Here are some memories of Conal staff taking part in public events in the past:
