About Us

Events & Venues is made up of a small dedicated team of staff who have been booking Business Accommodation, Conferences & Meetings, Team Building, Corporate Entertaining and Training for over 26 years.

Understanding you and your business

  • Your dedicated account managers will listen, check for understanding and deliver to your full satisfaction
  • We’ll share with you great tips, ideas and creative suggestions
  • We work with you building up an understanding of the types of venues that work for you
  • We never assume that ‘one size fits all’ – even within one organisation we consider different events require different venues
  • We offer a completely unbiased list of options with the belief that if we find the right venue, you will come back to us time and time again.
  • We do all of the above to ensure your event goes well and you are never let down on the day.

  • Government Departments
  • Space Industry
  • Medical Supplies

The company was founded by Jackie Basden, 27 years ago .

      “Our Venue Finding is not only FREE but it will GUARANTEE to secure you the best price and terms every time. Because we’re a relatively small company, with a fabulous track record, we can pick and choose who we work with and thus offer a very personal, friendly, bespoke and outstanding service.  Last year 98% of our business came from repeat business and word of mouth recommendations, ask yourself – why do you think that was?”

Over the years Events & Venues has not needed to advertise their services as most business comes via recommendation from existing clients. Read Testimonials from some of our regular clients Our Clients’ Testimonials 

Venue Finding Agents are now placing over 60% of the corporate business booked each year with less than 30% being booked by corporates direct. Whilst E&V place bookings daily into all the major hotel groups such as Marriott & Radisson, E&V are totally unbiased and also offer independent venues and specialise in unusual options both in the UK and around Europe.
