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.
Each member of the team has years of experience and knowledge within the industry to enable us to provide the best solutions to match any brief.

I have been a part of the DeSouza Associates team for almost 2
Why not consider Edinburgh for your next corporate event? Stee
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.
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
Extremely efficient service, very helpful, friendly and no job is too big or small
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
DeSouza Associates have found us the most beautiful venue to hold our conference, in a location we would never have thought of ourselves. We were not sure if the event was going to be feasible to run, but thanks to Lida and the team it’s looking to be a great success. Our whole office is very excited!
I have had the opportunity to be partnered with ‘DeSouza Associates’ over many years, both as working as a Hotelier for a luxury 5 star hotel chain and as one of the largest Global Independent Destination Management Companies.
