What types of venues can DeSouza Associates book for you?
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.
Are you really a free service?
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.

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.
Are venue rates increased to cover the commission payment?
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.
Do you book Entertainment?
