Making memories that last

We’re all about creating amazing experiences that make a great incentive, and an even better reward. And sometimes the best experiences just aren’t going to happen in the four walls of your workplace.

Creating something truly unforgettable is an unrivalled way of getting your message across. Teambuilding, inspiring great performances and rewarding people is all really important – so get out there, because it’s time to see the world. Our meetings and events team take your star people to the coolest and quirkiest travel destinations, making memories that connect powerfully to your organisation.

This is what we do

Want to be the kind of organisation that can throw an amazing employee conference, deliver the best possible training, reward long service like no one else, recognise outstanding work, or give a money-can’t-buy thank you for smashing their targets? Well, we can help you get there.

We design unforgettable experiences specifically for you and your people, helping you deliver your message in the most powerful and engaging way possible. Whatever that message might be, we’ll work with you to plan and organise the event that does the best job of shouting it loud and proud to your people – making happier and more productive employees in the process.

Our meetings, travel and events team are always going the extra mile. Sometimes even a thousand miles. It’s all about giving you real money-can’t-buy stuff that makes a lasting impact. We’ll even see your people onto the plane.

Our services

We love planning events – and we love how they always puts a smile on people’s faces. Don’t sweat the logistics, we’re here to take care of any kind of company event you could possibly imagine.

Incentive Travel and Events

Can you think of a better reward for a great performance at work than a holiday? Give your top talent the opportunity for a money-can't-buy trip as part of an incentive and recognition programme – trust us, the results will be amazing, and that positive experience (all tied to your brand!) will last a lifetime.

Truly global rewards
Group Travel

As you'll know if you've ever taken a holiday, the fun doesn't really start until you get on the plane. As your very own travel agent, we'll get your people where they need to go – there's no flight-booking stress for you. We just take care of it all.

Travel in style

Event services from Sodexo

Our events team give you a full-service event management strategy, working with you on every detail so it’s exactly how you want it. We transform meetings and events into something so much more impactful, productive and meaningful – all while making sure everything goes off without a hitch on the day.

  • Dream

    We start with you. We dig deep into your culture, your audience and the solutions you're looking for – we then work up a brief with your requirements and limitations so we're both on the same page. Then, we get started on the exciting stuff – researching the best themes and venues, and sourcing suppliers.

  • Define

    Let's take those starting points and make 'em better. You know what you want – but what about the people who'll actually be experiencing this event? We talk to them, with focus groups, questionnaires and interviews, to make sure everyone gets a say. We'll also work with our suppliers to learn about any new innovations that could take your event to the next level. And, of course, we'll carry out all the relevant site inspections and risk assessments.

  • Devise

    Time to make it happen! This is where we really roll up our sleeves, and start putting your event together. Managing suppliers, registering attendees, preparing itineraries and menus, sorting travel insurance and visas, and tracking your event budget – we do it all, and we’ll always keep you in the loop.

  • Deliver

    We don't just leave you to it once the big day's here – we'll be with you every step of the way, with full on-site staffing, behind-the-scenes logistics management, and helping out your guests in any way that we can. If there's any way we can make your event more memorable (only in the good ways, of course!) then we'll do it.

  • Determine

    We're sure you'll be ready to sleep your big event off, so leave the clean-up to us. We gather feedback from attendees and suppliers, and give you a full debrief on the event – all of which helps us give you an even better experience next time! And, of course, we clear all invoices and present you with full financial records.

Bespoke Touches Icon
Bespoke Touches

It's all about the little things that make that big difference. Our attention to detail makes everyone feel like a VIP – valet parking, airport lounge access, red carpet welcomes, branded merchandise, limo drivers, daily itineraries, and maybe even a bottle of bubbly or two. Whatever you want to give people, we can make it happen – and we've got plenty of great suggestions of our own, too.

Spellbinding Entertainment Icon
Spellbinding Entertainment

Let's give your event some star power. As long as it's suitable for the tone of your event, we'll find you entertainment that people will never forget. Nothing's too weird or wonderful – poets, mind-readers, singing waiters, knife throwers... though we're also big fans of comedians, celebrity speakers, or even a good ol' jazz band.

Why choose Sodexo?
