“Thank you so much for getting this sorted so quickly.  This is absolutely fantastic, the outcome far more better than expected, waiving the whole parking fee! Now this is what I call outstanding service so huge thanks for resolving this for us, just wanted you to know that this is much appreciated. You’ve been a superstar as always!”

Sony Europe

“Last week, when I was in Paris, I met the French colleagues from Sales division and Marketing division, involved in BETT Partner Trip in UK. All of them told me that everything went perfectly with the Event (hotel, lunches, dinner-cruise and transfers). They have received a lot of appreciations by our Partners during the Event, and also later! So, let me forward you these very positive comments and thank you very much for your great support,  professionalism and  patience in following us in all the requirements (and changes). Many thanks again!”

I found the whole experience excellent. pro-ven were always helpful no matter who I was speaking to. The venue was top quality and all the staff were amazing. I would definitely use both pro-ven and the The Elvetham again and highly recommend. It was my first time organising an event and using pro-ven made the process 1000 times easier.
Thank you very much


The venue team were fantastic and went out of their way to accommodate our needs.
As always pro-ven could not be more helpful in supporting me in making my arrangements


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the efficient and professional service you have provided with the venue searching for this meeting – my colleague was absolutely right when she described your service!  Thanks a million!


I have worked with Julian Laxon and the team at pro-ven for 6 years, which I believe is testament to the service that they deliver.
They strive to really understand the objectives of the events we hold at Sainsbury’s to ensure they are sourcing venues that are suitable, and in the ever changing events industry this proves more challenging as events become more interactive and experience led.
They continue to deliver creative venue solutions against often challenging demands, be that budget constraints, tight deadlines or unusual requests.  And have put a dedicated team in place to work alongside the Sainsbury’s events team in partnership.

Spectacular evening – everybody said so! Thanks.

“The venue-finding team at pro-ven have a great venue product knowledge, yet they always want to extend this knowledge by enthusiastically taking part in our supplier ‘presentations’. These presentations are usually unusual just like Lime Venue Portfolio!

Having worked with pro-ven closely over the last four years, this is primarily down to Jayne Marriott who provides unrivalled supplier support. Quick to respond to communications plus appropriately channelling venue and Lime Venue Portfolio news to the operational teams. A pleasure to work with.”
