London, 22nd November 2016: Winners at the EVCOM UK Live Awards weren’t the only ones with a reason to celebrate last Friday when a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title was set at the prestigious events award ceremony. Guests and staff donned white gloves to break the record for the Most people performing jazz hands, a feat that required them to perform suitably jazzy hand movements continuously for 60 seconds. The attempt took place under the watchful eye of an official Guinness World Records adjudicator who confirmed that a new record of 394 participants had been set.
Andrew Winterburn, organiser of the EVCOM Live Awards said: “I was delighted to work with Guinness World Records on this record attempt. The buzz and excitement of the audience of over 400 events industry professionals was incredible and it was fantastic to see hundreds of white gloves waving across Supernova…. what was really great to see was that all the waiting staff joined in as well. It was made even more special as we were all raising money for charity at the same time!”
Guinness World Records’ Business Development Manager, Mark Kelly added: “Mass participation records work brilliantly as event icebreakers and are a great way of bringing people together. We’re delighted to have been able to give EVCOM’s guests a first-hand experience of record-breaking and have maybe whetted their appetite to try some record attempts of their own.”
