Event Planning Services
Our specialities lie with the bespoke creation, management and delivery of all kinds of events. We are fully aware of how much time and resource is required in running an event and how intimidating and stressful it can be.
Hippo’s Event Planner team are on hand to support you every step of the way with your event through our two core services.
End-to-end Event Project Management
Our full event project management service is available for all kinds of events from corporate parties, conferences and product launches to more relaxed international incentive events.
The event planning stage starts with working on the Event Design and Concept but we then assist you right through to the delivery of your event, on-site, and then with the Post-event Evaluation. Whilst we are happy to take full control of your event, we know that some of our clients like to be more involved than others. We are flexible in our approach to and you can rest assured that we will handle as much, or as little, of the process as you wish.
We will always ensure that you have a single point of contact who is fully aware of the ins and outs of your event. Our goal is to make your event as stress free as possible.
In addition to the day-to-day management of your event we can also offer Audio Visual, Entertainment & Décor, Print & Design, Transportation, App Development, Delegate Management, Event Identity creation and Technology integration.
Global Venue Finding
One of the most requested services we offer is our venue finding service. We know how demanding and time consuming finding the perfect venue for your event can be. It can be further complicated with confusing rate cards from the venues.
Allow us to take the burden of this search off your shoulders and let us find venue that ticks all of the boxes for your event.
We are able to find venues both domestically and internationally with no part of the world too far flung. We will work unrelentingly to find the right venue, at the right cost and then present proposals to you with clearly laid out information.
When you bring us in to plan your event the first thing we will do is to meet with our client to discuss the event in detail including the client’s ideas and goals. Other important areas for discussion include when and where they would like to hold their event, catering requirements, the budget and how much you would like us to be involved.
We can manage your event from the initial concept through to execution and always do so with personality and professionalism.
A luxury city centre hotel in the UK or a large indoor arena in New York? We operate globally.
We offer a free service where your brief is discussed with our Venue Finding professional who will then go away and conduct the research and put together a proposal of suitable venues for you. Our proposals will be written clearly and concisely with all the information you will require to make an informed decision. Find out more here.
