About us

Barn End Events was established in 2004 and is based near Oxford. We provide Event Management Services for corporate businesses and associations. These vary from, but are not restricted to, residential training courses, one-day business meetings, seminars, conferences, in-house training and evening receptions.

We use unique venues in London and Oxford for our events, as we believe that every part of the meeting should be memorable. Our London venues include Watermen’s Hall, Trinity House and the Commonwealth Club – chosen for their history and architecture. Barn End Events create a relaxed, but stimulating, environment for learning and discussion.

Innovative Ethos
We have also developed an event specific app to enhance participant experience. Not only does it provide real time information, but significantly reduces the need for paper presentations.  It's the ‘go to’ place for speaker biographies, collaborator and sponsor details and programme and workshop selection options.

The client's needs always come first, so we offer bespoke solutions adapted to client requirements. Our versatility enables us to respond rapidly to ever-changing circumstances whilst never losing an eye for detail.

Feedback

'If no one else has said it yet, the APP is TERRIFIC. I’m running it on my laptop. It’s one of the best electronic tools of this type I’ve seen at a conference, particularly a conference of this size. It’s wonderful to be able to sort and access the information, schedule, and speakers in so many different and convenient ways. And, as always, the conference logistics are excellent.

Steve Schooner - George Washington University

'We have now used Justine/Barn End Events several times to manage our international conference on public procurement, and cannot praise them too highly. Justine and her staff are 100% reliable and efficient, as well as friendly and a pleasure to work with. Not only have they dealt superbly with both planning the event and detailed implementation – involving liaison with hundreds of high profile speakers and delegates from all over the world – but have come up with innovative ideas that have greatly improved the quality of the conference over the years'.

Professor Sue Arrowsmith - Achilles Professor of Public Procurement Law and Policy, University of Nottingham

With all our events, the following tasks are included:

  • Initial briefing
  • Source and book a venue
  • Invitation and confirmation of speakers
  • Invitation of, and joining instructions to, delegates
  • Draw up the programme, attendance list etc
  • Liaise with caterers, florists, A/V suppliers
  • Invoicing and budgets

More feedback

'Thank you very much for your tireless effort in making this conference such a success. I was very impressed, especially by your ability to make each and every participant feel as if they were your sole focus and concern, from the keynote speaker down to the first-timer like me'.

Karen Thornton - George Washington University, USA

'Having worked with Justine over the last 12 years running our events programme, I have found her to be efficient, professional and dedicated in dealing with clients and speakers on all levels. She has always built first class relationships with anyone associated with our events, leading to longstanding associations with companies, venues, caterers etc'.

Independent personal assistant

Barn End Events also offers a service for clients who require a Personal Assistant to help support their business at a critical time. As organisation is our core strength, we can offer this service for clients independently of our primary activities.

We have previously offered, for example, short-term personal assistance to a landscape gardener whose business growth outstripped the development of associated administrative systems.  We created efficient administrative solutions including for "paperwork", invoicing, payroll, banking, client databases and advertising.

We would be delighted to provide you with a bespoke PA service (virtual or in person) should this be of interest.
