Dazzling awards ceremonies celebrate success, reward hard work and acknowledge achievement. They are a brilliant way to inspire employees and boost morale. From Dubai and The Netherlands to London and Oxford, we’ve organised some spectacular awards ceremonies for our clients in incredible venues like Dubai Creek Golf Club, Chelsea Football Club, The Fairmont St Andrews and the historic Oxford Town Hall.

The ultimate thank you for clients, partners or high-performing employees, we can organise unique trips and events tailored to your needs. Whether it’s VIP travel, luxury hotel stays or hospitality, we’ll plan something that rewards and motivates your guests while supporting you on important aspects like CSR and carbon offsetting.

Bring staff together and get them fired up about the year ahead. We’ll help you to create a high-energy event by dialling up the creativity and spectacle of your annual conference or company kick off. Forget endless hours in bland function rooms and, instead, keep motivation sky high by bringing in the wow factor. We’ve arranged a drumming session for 750 guests in Holland; dragon boat racing for 140 people on the Thames; a ‘brushes and bubbles’ painting workshop in central London; a mini highland games at a Scottish Castle; raft building in the Cotswolds and ‘Its A Knockout’ and company Olympics in central London.

Host a special event that people will talk about for years to come – for all the right reasons. There are so many brilliant reasons to throw a gala dinner or cocktail reception from networking, fundraising and celebration to reward & recognition and brand awareness. We’ll organise every aspect of your highly bespoke event including the venue, catering, production, entertainment, theme and décor. The gala dinner that Sarah organised for a private equity client in Venice took place in a palace along the Grand Canal. We seated 80 people around one long table, decorated with 320 vases of flowers. It looked spectacular!

Seasonal parties show clients and staff how much you value them, while providing Insta-worthy photo opportunities that are great for PR. We deliver inspiring family fun days, garden BBQs, grand winter balls, festival-themed summer parties, golf days and more. We love creating utterly memorable experiences like the luxury millinery workshop we organised at a boutique hotel in London on behalf of a law firm. The Champagne and dessert canapes only added to everyone’s enjoyment. Give your guests the wow factor (and some mouth-watering catering) and they will reward you with their loyalty.

With press, VIPs and key customers invited, a product launch is a thrilling but nerve-racking event for any organisation so careful planning is crucial. We’ll come up with creative ideas to make sure your launch is the hottest ticket in town and generate a buzz of excitement around your new product or service. Let us take care of the logistics and the all-important ‘unveiling’ so you can spend time with your VIP guests and work the room.

Time away from the distractions of the office (home offices included) is worth its weight in gold when it comes to creativity and focus. We can find the perfect venue for your team to connect, collaborate and develop strategy, whether that means a luxurious country retreat or a boutique city centre hotel. Leave the catering, travel and activities to us and give your full attention to the agenda.
