I’m a London venue finder, working with many London Corporate Event Buyers.

Sourcing luxury hotels, venues to hold your meetings, conferences, private dinners and networking events in.

Based near London with hotel and venue connections throughout London City, West End, M25 and UK

Send me your brief for your event including:
- Budget
- Style of Venue
- Approx Numbers
- Layout
- Anywhere you may have held the event before or where you have started brainstormiing internally

I reach out to my hotel and venue contacts with your brief with an appropriate deadline

I collate all quotes and put together on a Park Lane Events proposal so you can scan through and start shortlisting

Once shortlisted, I set up site visits for you if required. Depending on timing, location and your requirements I come with you if possible and can even do this on your behalf.

Once site visits are completed, we feedback to each other finalising any additional information that may have been discussed, particularly any negotiation to support finalising the contract.

I request the contract from the venue to support a speedy turn around. You sign the contract before sending back to me so I have a copy and to ensure the venue receives in a timely manor.

I send a handover email between you and the chosen venue where required. The venue will then be in touch to discuss final details and timings direct with you.

POST EVENT:

I request a COPY INVOICE from the venue for my records. They will send one direct to you for prompt payment. I require a copy to claim the commission on the booking that has taken place which I will receive once the hotel/venue has received payment from you. Standard industry commission is between 8-10% net of VAT. This is how I get paid to give you (the client) a free service. This can sometimes be called a 'finders fee'.

I follow up with you post event for feedback on the venue, service and going forward with your next event where relevant.
