TESTIMONIALS

As one of the leading names when it comes to event management in Kent, we are 100% committed to ensuring you have everything needed to host the perfect show. Here’s what our clients had to say…

From concept stage right through to the closing credits this event delivered an exceptional experience for us as hosts and for our attendees.
The set looked amazing with high quality graphics, interaction and creativity. All backed up by technical assistance and expertise that put all of us that were speaking on the day at our ease.
Our audience loved it and we were so pleased with the engagement that we could continue to have with our attendees and sponsors despite not being in a room together. Connect In events delivered us a professional, immersive and still personal event and I was really impressed with how the day turned out.

I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your hard work and sheer brilliance in pulling the virtual conference together. As always, we knew we were in safe hands and we are delighted with the outcome. Whilst it all would prefer something in person, I do think that our colleagues responded to this being the very best that we could make it and you played a huge part in that.
Thanks again

Thank you for hosting a great event. This was my first virtual awards ceremony, I must say it was absolutely fantastic. The live studio event made you feel part of the atmosphere and interacting with the twitter accounts was great, accompanied by a great meal, wine and entertainment
I have become a fan of virtual events, and the effort the Connectin team put in bridged the gap of being physically at the event.
Watching on a screen at home was amazing and I will be asking for moreof these events in the future!!

We have been supported for both live and virtual events by Connect In. They provide excellent project management of the event with a little bit extra, their creativity and 'can do' approach are second to none. On the day they are both professional and supportive, planning ahead and reacting as needed should unexpected circumstances arise. We have been delighted with all of the events Connect In have supported us with and the output for both our live and virtual events has been both professional and fun - a tricky balance to strike.

Got to say working with the Connect In team is nothing short of amazing. No job too small and the attention to detail is incredible. The team delivered a full day conference that resembled more a glossy daytime TV programme.
The Client was delighted.

Here to Help Where It’s Needed

We aren’t here to come in and take everything out of your hands and deliver you an end-product. These services exist, but we feel passionately that a service built around you, with you and your needs at the heart of everything, will lead to a much better final product. No two events, and no two clients are ever the same — so a one-size-fit-all solution will lead to an undercooked concept that fails to deliver on the promise. Our team takes the time needed to fully understand your needs before moving through the process of delivering an end product you can be proud of. 

Our determination to meet your high expectations is what helps us to constantly innovate and stage all manner of different events. No matter the size, scale, or budget of the occasion, we’re ideally placed to offer our unique perspective.
