Case studies

Barn End Events offer Freelance Event Management Services. We have over 19 years experience of managing corporate business meetings, seminars, conferences, residential training courses, client dinners, receptions, exhibition openings and weddings.

Business Seminars

Over the last 13 years, we have co-ordinated a regular programme of business seminars and courses for First Economics.

Exhibition Openings

We have coordinated three separate exhibition openings, held at the Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock, to launch the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Trust’s fundraising campaign to raise funds to build a bespoke Military museum. By January 2014, the museum was complete and the organisation of creating exhibitions and galleries was underway.


Over a number of years, we have organised an evening reception at the House of Lords with the kind permission of Lord Bradshaw for the Railway Study Association. This was always an extremely popular event, and guests felt that the grandeur of the surroundings complimented the entertainment provided by the evening event.

STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory TS2 Celebration and Vickers Building Opening

What a wonderful way to celebrate 10 years of the TS2 project and to dedicate the new building to Jane Vickers.

A slight departure from our usual venue in that an aeroplane could fit in the space.

However, with a little imagination, this was the end result:

The building is designed for instrument testing, not fine dining, but even our outside kitchen worked a treat.

Our first conference for SFTC and what an excellent event it was.

Public Procurement: Global Revolution Series of International Conferences

Working closely with Professor Sue Arrowsmith, Achilles Professor of Public Procurement Law and Policy, University of Nottingham and Achilles Information Ltd, we have coordinated a series of major international conferences on Procurement Law.

This extremely successful series of events provides unique networking opportunities, including plenary sessions and workshop streams of specific interest. With almost 300 participants of speakers and delegates from most of the major international organisations involved in procurement regulation (including a significant number from each of the WTO, World Bank and EBRD), as well as from academia, government, and the private sector, this event leads discussion on procurement regulation.

Cost of Capital Conference

At the start of 2019, the cost of capital was, once again, proving to be a key area of focus in periodic reviews being carried out by the likes of Ofgem, Ofcom and the CAA.  To consider this, a very well-supported conference was held at Watermen’s Hall, London.

Horticultural Trade Association

We are also delighted to have worked with the Horticultural Trade Association on their extensive range of events and with the Chartered Institute of Horticulture on their AGM and annual Conference Island Horticulture: Life after Brexit at Farmers’ and Fletchers Hall, London.

Cost of Capital Conference
Trinity House, Trinity Square, London

This was a meeting of regulators, companies, investors and other interested parties from across the UK’s regulated sectors. The event explored factors likely to impact on the rates of return that regulators would include in upcoming price control decisions.
