1998 – Nightclub Direct & Millennium Leisure Ltd is born

Our founder, Justin Romero-Trigo, creates Nightclub Direct & Millennium Leisure Ltd from an office above a bookmakers in Horsforth, Leeds.

1999 – Nightclub Direct & Millennium Leisure take on their first staff member

Venues are realising that we can offer something that non-specialists can’t. The business starts to hire staff, including some who are still with us in 2019!

2002 – Nightclub Direct & Millennium Leisure move into their first ‘proper’ office building

Nightclub Direct & Millennium Leisure has already outgrown our premises. We knew the office above the bookmakers wasn’t going to contain us forever, so we’re moving down the road in Horsforth to a much bigger office building.

2003 – We become NDML and partner with NOCTIS

Nightclub Direct & Millennium Leisure is becoming a bit of a mouthful so we shorten it to simply ‘NDML’. In the same year, we sign our first partnership agreement with an industry campaign group: BEDA (The Bar Entertainment & Dance Association).

BEDA would later rebrand themselves as NOCTIS (Latin for night) before reverting to their previous moniker.

2012 – A Rebrand

As we build to becoming one of the leading specialist brokers for the industry, we decide that a hand-drawn logo just won’t cut it anymore. We create a new logo and modernise the brand.

2017 – NDML partner with the NTIA

NDML partners with the NTIA (Night Time Industries Association), one of the industry’s biggest lobby groups.

2018 – The 20th Anniversary

NDML celebrates 20 years of treating customers exceptionally. We celebrate with a party and a promise that the next 20 years will bring more of the same.

2019 – ?

And that brings us to the present day-2019. We’re really looking forward to making more history with our brilliant clients and helping to make this industry stronger and more secure.
