VIP Hospitality and Concierge Service
First impressions are everything!
Just because we’ve gone virtual, doesn’t mean we don’t have to look after the guests. We will work with you to craft the right approach for your online event, from designing their invites through to creating your online portal for your guests to tune in too. All in keeping with the theme of your event, just as if they are sat in the room with you.
With have a proven track record and we pride ourselves on our delegate management skills, offering a personal approach and accommodating their every need. Making sure everyone remembers your virtual event for all the right reasons.
Event Asset design & Production
We’ve got it covered! We believe content is key and through our in house creative design service we can make your messages stand out and engage with your audience in both the virtual and live event world.
Even though we’re producing events virtually, it doesn’t mean we can’t think outside the box and spoil your event’s guests, making them feel part of the celebrations.
Why not send them all a goodie box to enjoy throughout your show or have their award delivered to their door as if it was being presented to them on the night – anything is possible.
We understand how important it is, more than ever to look after your colleagues, guests and stakeholders and just because they’re at home and not in the studio, it doesn’t need to be a barrier to success. We’re also able to offer your event brand development, website design and build, as well as full conference support through our team of trusted third-party suppliers.

Whether you want a motivational speaker to challenge your audience’s thinking or a spot of light-hearted entertainment from a singer over lunch – we have the perfect person(s) in mind to bring your virtual event alive and bring your audience in.
There’s no point having a party, if no one can see it!

We don’t just create events and brands for other people. Not many people know, but we’re also responsible for creating the prestigious Women In Housing awards and launching them to the housing sector back in 2009. Our partnership with TPAS goes back a long way. This year we delivered their first virtual TPAS awards, including a three-course meal delivered to each and every delegates door.
Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at the virtual events we’ve produced for other housing associations including Your Housing Group, One Manchester, Onward Homes, Great Places and many more.
