DeSouza Associates are an independent company and therefore unbiased when suggesting suitable venues. We work with all major hotel groups (both international and national), independent hotels, conference and training centres and various other unique and unusual venues.
Yes, we are paid a small commission by the venues for the business placed with them. This is paid to us after the event takes place and when the final invoice is paid in full by the client.
No, not at all; due to our buying power and negotiation skills we will always endeavour to get the best possible rates for our clients and to match any budget.
Anything from indoor to outdoor events, competitive challenges, creative and artistic workshops, sporting activities, culinary ice breakers and many more. These events can be tailor made to suit budget and expectations.
We work with a range of partners including team building companies, caterers, entertainment providers and AV suppliers to enable us to suggest additional extras to make your event stand out from the crowd.
Our offices are open between 9am – 5.15pm Monday through to Friday. You can contact us by telephone, email or through the website from our contacts page. We can also be found on Twitter, Facebook & Linkedin
With one phone call or click of a button we can save you time and money by doing all the background work in finding a suitable venue for your event. We have 20 years expertise and knowledge behind us and we act with honesty and integrity in all our dealings with customers and suppliers alike.

We have been working with DeSouza Associates for two years now and have been extremely delighted with the quality of the work they have carried out for us. DeSouza has great people working in the company, which translates to successful projects and happy returning clients. What I particularly like about the company is that they make the clients’ customer service journeys very personalised by for instance taking the time to understand businesses’ needs and project requirements.

Thanks again Penny – fab service from you as always !
It was a pleasure talking to you over the past couple of days. I have found you and your service very helpful, informative and your venue options covering all discussed aspects. Great attention to detail! Please get back in touch in order to book future events as we will definitely be using your services again! Many thanks for all your help!
DeSouza Associates are our go to for arranging meetings, conferences and company away days. The nature of our business means we have to get conference venues arranged at short notice and DeSouza Associates always bend over backwards to help us find the perfect venue & stay within budget. Lida, Catherine and the team are super helpful; the venues they select are perfectly tailored & fit the events requirements, their attention to detail is second to none, I couldn’t recommend them more highly!…
Lida, I would like to thank you for helping us put this event together and helping us co-ordinate on all the activities, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. Dinner went down really well. The courtyard was a real wow factor especially as it was a beautiful warm evening. All in all the event was a great success from start to finish. Once again, thank you for your help and support and I will certainly recommend you to other companies.
Lida, thank you for your on-site assistance at our corporate reception at the Orangery at Kensington Palace recently. You managed this responsibility professionally and with the same commitment to high quality we enjoy from our own staff. The event was a huge success and ran very smoothly.
I would like to thank DeSouza Associates for your prompt, friendly service and support over the years. Without your help and follow-up we would not have been aware of many of the wonderful venues we have used, in various locations up and down the country. Wishing you continued success
I have used Desouza Associates for many years and value the excellent service they always provide no matter what the request or timescale given. They are always polite, helpful and very efficient at dealing with anything I ask for. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective clients and will continue to use their services in the coming years.
I have used DeSouza Associates with two different companies and keep returning. Having worked in the industries they support, they truly understand what is required. They are thorough, adaptable and say what they are going to do. Lida leads by example and has instilled her high standards and infectious enthusiasm into each and every member of her team. They treat each client equally, however big or small the enquiry. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed
Finding venues always takes so much longer than I expect it to, so being able to outsource it gives me back time to focus on my core job; DeSouza Associates’ service really comes into its own when there are queries or changes as this can be hugely time consuming. The service is always fast, efficient, reliable and free. They work to even the most challenging brief to find venues that surprise and delight.
Our vision is for “Perfect conferences, events and venues every time". Collectively, the team at DeSouza Associates has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the events industry & has established relationships with a variety of venues & hotel groups in the UK & worldwide.
Our mission is to offer a professional and personal service on each and every occasion and to maintain a high level of product knowledge in all areas.
