A helping hand…

The key to delivering a successful event lies in the pre work to bring together all the elements on the day to give your delegates a memorable experience.

Surrounding yourself with a talented, experienced team from the outset until the post event evaluation is vital and this is where Ellis Salsby can support you. Our Event Planners give you the ability to control all aspects of your event without the hassle. Not only will they help you save time and money, they can give you creative ideas that have been proven successful in the field.



All we need to know to get started:

  • Event objectives
  • Budget
  • Date(s)
  • Audience profile
  • Location

Ellis’ Top Tip

“Organising your conference, trade day or awards dinner can be a stressful journey, so my top tip is to be honest about your inhouse skills. Identify any gaps and seek external support from partners and experts who can help, it may not be as expensive as you think and can certainly deliver a positive ROI and reduce the hassle for you.

We can also Project Manage your other event partners such as AV / Production companies, speakers, team building / entertainment companies and even your inhouse colleagues (if required).

Additionally, we can advise you on ‘up scaling’ your existing events for example registration for a Trade day for 1300 delegates is a very different scenario to a conference for 300.

Use us to supplement the gaps in your inhouse team or outsource the whole project.”

What else?

We work closely with our clients to really understand their business and ensure we help run the best event possible. We try and get into the headspace of the attendees to try and understand how they should be feeling when they leave an event.

Sometimes this can take more than standard procedures, which is why as well as managing your event, we can offer a wider range of services to make your event extra special.

#2 Location Research

As an experienced venue sourcing company, we know what to look for when researching potential locations. We’ll take your full brief into consideration and look for somewhere that ticks all the boxes. We’ll contact venues on your behalf (provided they can properly fulfill your brief) and negotiate the best rates and ensure that the availablity is there for you.

#3 Shortlist Candidates

Once we have found suitable options, we get you to shortlist your favourite venues. From there we can organise site visits with the selected venues so you have a better understanding of the space & team. If we don’t find a venue that you like (this doesn’t happen often!) we are happy to keep looking for options that may suit you better.
