Based in the historic and cultured City of Oxford, we believe that every event should not only be inspiring but also unforgettable.

Conven-event offer a structured, professional yet personal touch on the service given. We provide event planning in a wide range of applications, guaranteeing satisfaction in the areas of appearance, performance and taste.

This manifests itself it 2 sections;

* Corporate Events/ Retreats *

These events are typically used for two different reasons. They are either leadership training or teaming skills training where employees of the corporation are sent away to develop these skills. In addition to the planning of the events, Conven-event will be able to host the event as well. While Conven-events core competencies are not in hosting, Conven-event will align itself with a well respected host of leadership development/teaming skills programs and have them assist Conven-event in the hosting aspect. Using a strategic partner in this case allows Conven-event to stick with a narrow focus but still offer the service to our customers.

* Weddings / Social Gatherings *

Etiquette advice, event scheduling, discounted invitations and products, vendor confirmation, rehearsal attendance, supervision of both ceremony and reception set up and budget planning.
