t DeSouza Associates, we offer an individual & bespoke conference venue finding service for each client and each booking. Ultimately we are here to save you time, money and provide the best event solution for your event. A venue finder is able to source suitable venues for your event for every client to match a specific budget, event requirement or attendee number.


  • What type of event are you planning – a conference, meeting, training, dinner etc.. and what is the purpose of the event?
  • Total budget for your event – does this budget include or exclude VAT
  • Numbers attending the event and the demographic of delegates attending
  • Location required
  • Conference Room layout – there are many different types of conference room layouts to suit all events; from theatre style to classroom style, boardroom style to cabaret. Cabaret style is very popular and allows delegates to view the main stage and presenter whilst having the ability for discussions around the table.
  • AV requirements – this can impact on the size of event space required
  • What type of catering is needed during the event?
  • Will you require bedrooms for guests to stay overnight either on the event days or night prior? If yes, then a conference hotel could be your best option!

It is important for us as a venue finder to obtain a comprehensive brief at the beginning to ensure a better understanding of the event requirements thereby enabling us to best match the venues we propose.

London remains the primary city for conferences and there are so many venues to choose from but other key destination trends for events include Birmingham (Midlands), Glasgow, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh.

Our Conference Venue finding Service does not just stop at UK venues. Conference venues can be sourced all over the world too. DeSouza Associates have the knowledge and expertise to source venues nationally and internationally and have a great relationship with all hotel groups and conference venues.

In addition to finding the perfect venue, the conference venue finding service offered by DeSouza Associates can also include sourcing other elements of your corporate event such as entertainment, activities, speakers, accommodation, team building, training venues and many more.

We keep up to date with industry changes and new openings by visiting conference hotels and venues, meeting with suppliers on a regular basis and attending industry events.

DeSouza Associates have a wide spectrum of clients in all different industries from Personal Assistants to Marketing Executives and from the Financial to the Engineering sectors. We can assist with all venue finding needs for your event.

We also have specialist knowledge in organising medical events of all sizes from advisory boards to international conferences.
