About us

 

We are no nonsense approachable people with long and sucessful experience of running events, designing and implementing software, sales, marketing, training and finance.

 

Our approach to business is built on three pillars.

01. Strategic

We always start by looking at the big picture – what are you trying to achieve and why. Our experience means we don’t take long or waste your time doing this.

02. Tactical

We have the people, skills and software to make things work the way you need, on time and within budget.

03. Supportive

You’re the face of your business  – we’re the back room team making it happen. Whenever and wherever – we are there to support you.

WE Save you money

We don’t waste your money on gimmicks.

We give you what you need,  when you need it and make it work.

We keep in touch

Branding is vital in today’s market for you as an organiser and your sponsors. Congress gives you amazing freedom to brand in virtually any way you want.

Delegates have lots of opportunites to interact with each other and your sponsors including targeted messages and interactive advertisements during and after the livestreamed sessions.

Increase your sponsors ROI by helping your exhibitors, sponsors and speakers interact with delegates before, during and after the event. Congress gives your sponsors many opportunities to engage with delegates on the day and either side of the main event. Some of the ideas we support include personalised messages to delegates based on their interests and profile, arranging one to one meetings in-person or via the built in conference call tools, impromptu round table discussions and talk to the expert sessions, targeted adverts and in-line messaging during livestreams.

Sponsors and delegates love the Real Time Q&A which allows the speaker or their support team to engage with delegates in real-time while the speaker is still presenting. Delegates can use this live in the hall or virtually while watching at work. Many sponsors use Real Time Q&A to arrange timed one to one meetings later that day in the hall with the speaker or other product specialist.

Corporate Hospitality and other invitation driven events like product launches and sales conferences use the Guest Management System to manage their complex events. Your staff request tickets with as simple or complex a process to match your companies compliance and approval rules. You can easily allocate tickets so your sales teams manage their own invitations, sending them by email or post. Guests can register on-line or by telephone. Manage every aspect of guests, their partners and +1’s, accommodation, transport, food and seating plans. Ensuring that every communication and touch point uses your branding at every opportunity.

In short the GMS has everything you need to manage any invitation based event from a simple dinner through to thousands of invitations to an international PGA Golf Tournament, major sponsorship at Wimbledon or a a whole season of Premier League football sponsorship.
