FAQs – Corporate

What events do you organise?

  • Conferences

  • Product and Press launches
  • Private celebration events and dinners
  • Award & Charity gala dinners
  • Marketing events
  • Weddings
  • Christmas parties
  • Honeymoons

How many delegates can you organise an event for?

Having recently expanded, we have the capacity to organise small and large-scale events, therefore the number of delegates is never an issue for any event we organise in the UK, or internationally.

We can offer on-site management at events, including security staff, hospitality staff, registration staff and up to 5 x event manager for events with 20,000+ delegates.

 

Do you offer on-site management services?

We offer on-site management for any event that we organise. For some events this may not be necessary and the management will be left up to the in-house venue staff.

For outdoor events on-site management from Harridge Events is compulsory and charged per hour, per coordinator depending on the size of the event.

We require at least one month’s notice prior to the event to provide this service apart from in extenuating circumstances.  We recommend having management staff at your event up to 3hrs before for set up, throughout the duration of your entire event and up to 2hrs after the event.

 

What support do you offer for events?

We go above and beyond for our clients, therefore we offer additional services outside of events management such as:

  • Registration online services
  • Marketing promotion (banners, leaflets etc)
  • Design and branding
  • Travel management and accommodation
  • Gifting

 

What is the largest event space in London?

Olympia is the largest space in central London and boasts dedicated parking on-site.

Excel is great because there are hotels, car hire service and many other facilities essential for a streamlined conference on-site.

If you want an event in a marquee, check out the Artillery Garden at the HAC.

Wimbledon Park, or Hurlingham Club are recommended for a large outdoor event.

Also consider Wembley Stadium, even if your numbers do not warrant this space (the largest stadium in the UK) which can hold up to 90,000 guests, their event suites can hold between 1000-2000 for cocktail receptions.

 

Who are the best caterers for my event?

Some venues will dictate that you must stick to their accredited suppliers, others can be more flexible.

Your choice is largely determined by budget in most cases. Consider also whether you wish to work with a supplier who uses organically sourced produce and uses sustainable practices, or whether you care more about the creativity of the menu. We have close relationships with a wide range of caterers from the traditional to the bizarre and inventive.
