Outsourced Events is a London based events agency set up by Denise Sharpe and Alexandra Sibley in 2001, then operating out of a small office in Chiswick, West London. By 2007 the company had firmly established itself as a major player in the technology and associations events sectors with some of the world’s most well-known technology and association brands such as Citrix, Dell and British Society of Rheumatology amongst its clients.
Having both worked in the event industry since the 1990’s Denise and Alexandra’s goal was to create an event agency that could integrate so seamlessly with the client’s own business needs and processes that they became an extension of their own team. This philosophy set the company apart from the competition back in those early days and continues to do so today.
The agency offers a range of event services to clients working across EMEA; from registration, venue finding and trade show support through to sponsor liaison, delegate management and end to end event management, allowing clients to pick what services they need.
At Outsourced Events, it’s our job to turn your ideas into a reality. Central to this is our flexible and responsive event management service. We can provide this as a complete end-to-end service or as individual discrete elements that can work alongside your own internal event planning and marketing resources. However you want to work, we are agile enough to fit to your needs.
No two events are quite the same which is why we take the time to understand exactly what it is you want to achieve, before putting together a comprehensive event management plan. Depending on your requirements, this could cover everything from creative concept development through to logistics, finance planning, event marketing and post-event follow up. We will then assign you a dedicated client manager who will be your key contact from the beginning of the project through to its end. We work on either a project by project basis, or on a retainer.
A successful corporate event should stick in the mind, not fade into mundanity. We know the importance of creating a lasting impression for your attendees and vendors alike, but we’re also committed to making sure your event achieves everything you’ve set out to do. This is why we’ll never let artistic vision override established business goals and logistical realities. We know what works and we know what doesn’t.
We have the ability to adapt to your working practices and processes but we also believe that the way to build inspirational events from the ground up is to become an integral part of your team. Our passion for event planning is matched only by our experience, professionalism and friendliness. We love working with our clients and as a result they love working with us.
We have been working with major blue-chip technology firms since 2001 and are one of the leading UK events management and marketing service providers to the industry. We have worked with some of our clients for over a decade and over the years have come to view many of them as colleagues and friends, as much as clients.
Our focus and experience working in the technology sector has given us a deep insight into how this industry works and to appreciate the speed at which new technological developments can resonate across the wider market.
As well as technology event management, we are also fully committed to adopting new technologies as an agency. Our print on demand badging and registration service is a prime example of this, using proprietary software to allow instant badge printing on site and present a slick, professional first contact for delegates.
We have had a number of major associations as our clients since our inception delivering large conferences and exhibitions to a diverse membership audience. We were proud to add two new associations to our portfolio in 2017 – the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and the Royal College of Occupational Therapists – both annual large exhibitions and conferences for 1500 plus members each.
Our call for papers proprietary software is the perfect addition to the rest of the event management services that we are providing for these events, allowing potential presenters to fully submit online, reviewers to review all submissions online and us as organisers to allocate the sessions online.
