"In the 9 years that I have worked with Eventful I have never once been let down. Their knowledge of the industry takes huge stress and workload away from me. Eventful always manages to negotiate better rates than I can negotiate myself. This business model almost sounds too good to be true, but it isn't... reduced pain and workload whilst making cost savings! That is why I only work with Eventful whenever I organise an event of any kind."

“Whenever I get asked to find a venue for an event whether it's a small meeting, large conference or our Christmas party - my first action is to contact Eventful. I know that I am guaranteed an immediate response and first class delivery by all members of the team, who always exceed my expectations.”

“I woke up on Sunday morning with a distinct feeling that I had had a fairy tale dream and then I remembered the party! The Bollywood Christmas party was really, really fab! The food was great - everything was fantastic… I am lost for words. Thank you for all your efforts - really, really appreciated!”
“Well what can I say but... a very big THANK YOU. Our party was a great success and thank you so much for finding the venue, everyone had a wonderful time. Thanks for all your help this year, you have made my job so much easier and your patience has been very much appreciated. I so look forward to working you all again next year.”
“Thank you for offering this magnificent venue to us, thus providing the perfect Christmas dinner backdrop. Impossible to better this event in every respect.”

“There was a wow factor about the whole event that even for those of us working behind the scenes so tirelessly could not help but be amazed at the slickness of the entire event as it was rolled out each day. It was all very hard work for all those involved in the managing of the event, but working with Eventful made the event so successful. I can categorically state, that without Eventful the event would not have been such a success. Since this event I have recommended Eventful to numerous other BP staff and I have continued to use their services for all my off-site events, e.g. Christmas events, off site conferences, team meetings, team building events, etc. If I was doing this event again, there is nothing I would change. It set a precedent which will be a hard act to follow in the future!"

“As a training company our needs for the programmes we offer can be quite specific and we can always rely 100% on Eventful coming through with the perfect venue for our clients whilst keeping within budget. Our most recent event, a book launch at The British Library, was a huge success and I have no hesitation in saying this was all due to the expertise of Caroline and her team. I always tell my staff ‘we are a training company not an events company; leave that to the professionals at Eventful.’ ”
LEADERSHIP TRAINING COMPANY
"Eventful have found many fantastic locations for us both in the UK and overseas and contributed to making our events a success. I am continually impressed with their service and attention to detail. They always go the extra mile."

“The Product Forum was a complete success and I could not have organised it without your considerable help. The support you offered me was all I could have wished for. I definitely could not have pulled everything together without you and your colleagues at Eventful.”

“Just a quick note to thank you both for all the effort you put in last week to sort out the event at such short notice and with the constant changing demands. The delegates had a great day thanks to the surroundings and efficiency and professionalism of your staff.”
“…we are eager to share the news about the excellent service you provide!”
“Eventful are a young dynamic and professional team who have helped me considerably in searching for various locations for our Team Away Day's/Workshops & Conferences. They have always taken care of our requirements until the end which were tailor made for our needs. The staff are always friendly and helpful with different ideas; I couldn't possibly use anyone else!”
"I have been working with Eventful Ltd to book and run events in London and the surrounding area for two years. Eventful always provide excellent service. Their staff have exceptional knowledge of venues in and around the London area.
I book a variety of events, from private dinners for 15 to conferences and workshops for over 160 attendees. I simply could not organize these events without the service of Eventful; they handle all contact with the venues and other suppliers, they negotiate the rates and contract, and they will deal with any other requirements I may have. I can rely completely on the staff at Eventful to get things done; nothing is ever missed, and they help to keep me on track. They also understand our requirements, and we know that booking an event through Eventful means that we will have the conference we want.
I am always confident that they will not recommend a venue which will not work well for my event, and they are honest about their experience of working with venues, whether good or bad. Eventful have relationships with many venues in the London area, and provide proposals for each event, suggesting a choice of venues which are available on the dates I require. Each team member is familiar with the venues in the area, which is a very important part of the service Eventful provide to me – unlike other event management agencies, they offer a personal service, I will never phone them and reach a call centre where staff recommend venues they haven’t seen.
The relationships that Eventful has with venues means that they have good negotiating power – I know from experience that they are able to negotiate better rates on our behalf than I can on my own. Not only that, but Eventful can also negotiate added extras, such as room upgrades or VIP treatment for certain attendees.
Hotels often do not offer complimentary WiFi or bottled water in bedrooms, but knowing how important these small extras are to our staff, Eventful will always negotiate with the hotel to have these included for our conferences.
My job is not solely that of an event planner; as an Executive & Business Administrator I have a great deal of other work and responsibilities, not least providing support to four Vice Presidents, but despite this, events form a large part of my role. Working with Eventful allows me to manage my time effectively and means that I can meet all my obligations, not just events.
The service provided by Eventful is, by my experience, almost unique in the events industry – so many event management agencies use call centres with staff who do not know the venues they work with and are unable to respond to their clients individual needs. If I were to conduct all the research, negotiation and management of these events myself, I would be unable to fulfil the other responsibilities of my job, leaving the Vice Presidents without an assistant!"
