What We Do

The team at VNL Events are seasoned professionals with creative minds that can bring your biggest ideas to life creating events that are not only memorable but stress-free. We believe in fully understanding a client’s brief, expectations and budget prior to sending a proposal so that the outcome is what you, the client, envisioned. Our knowledgeable team will plan the logistics and think about the behind-the-scenes necessities that will be required to pull off your grand ideas. We strive to maintain transparency with our clients from the onset so that there are no surprise bills later on and will also advise the limitations of certain venues and locations so as not to disappoint. We believe you’re only as good as your last event and are continually improving upon our knowledge within the industry by keeping up with trends and taking all feedback received from clients very seriously so that we constantly improve our service.

Your designated coordinator manages your account from initial enquiry, meeting and site visit, through to the conceptualisation stage and proposal approval right through to execution on the day ensuring that everything runs smoothly so that you can relax and actually enjoy the evening. Your coordinator will manage all the suppliers and service providers and maintain a one-invoice model with no extra charges on the final bill without your approval.



Services we offer:

Full event coordination: From the red carpet that your guest’s set foot to on entrance right through to the entertainment on stage and a tailor made menu in a venue that fits your event like a glove, our full package is your hassle-free all-encompassing service that will manage every aspect of your event including transfers, accommodation, room drops, VIP lounges, décor, catering, entertainment, speakers, lighting effects, DJs and anything else you might require for your event.

Event coordination: So you’ve already chosen your venue but you need a professional to help with all the rest, our event coordination service allows us to apply our expertise within the industry and bring that skill set to you, wherever your dream venue might be.

On the day coordination: Ok, so you’ve managed to organise everything yourself but feel that on the day you would like to be able to actually mingle with your guests rather than running around ensuring that everything goes according to plan. That’s where our logistical maestros will step in and take charge coordinating all the suppliers according to the times specified and also that any special requests or dietaries are not forgotten giving you more time to make the rounds and effortlessly host the event.
