Host your event with us.

We're here for you every step of the way

Our event management service takes the stress out of organising by offering you tailored support before, during and after your event. We offer a range of packages to suit your requirements, but the typical service includes the following steps.

Before your event

Initial meeting to discuss your event and requirements

We like to meet with you to understand the scope of work, aims and objectives of the conference and set initial deadlines and budgets.

Before your event

Set-up of delegate registration pages

Once the registration fees are set, we create the registration pages using our software.

Before your event

Respond to delegate queries

We take the hassle away from responding to delegate enquiries and become their main point of contact for all conference, accommodation and payment queries.

Before your event

Report on delegate bookings

We keep you up to date with  weekly reports on booking numbers.

Before your event

Book and manage delegate accommodation

We can include the option to book campus accommodation during the registration process.

Before your event

Distribute delegate information, prepare name badges and packs

Ahead of the conference we will send all delegates joining instructions, create name badges and pack delegate bags. We provide a canvas bag, pen and notepad, and we will collate all materials to be included.

During your event

Staff the registration desk

We will provide a member of staff to operate the registration desk on the first morning of the conference to welcome the delegates.

After your event

Prepare final accounts and disbursement of monies

We will provide a full profit and loss account 60 days post event.
