“Cicada delivered a series of business roadshows in the spring of 2019 ahead of the UCI Road World Championships. They took care of every detail from venue sourcing and arranging speakers; marketing the events and creating appropriate content. The Cicada team were excellent throughout and helped to ensure that we delivered high quality events around the Harrogate district.”
