The Magical Spring 2019 Showcase in Oxford

We promised magic and we delivered it in the magical city of Oxford this March 2019! The Exclusively Thames Valley Spring 2019 Showcase was held in the 3 special venues of Saïd Business School, the Ashmolean Museum and Balliol College. 60 corporate and intermediary event planners met with 20+ regional venues and suppliers in a showcase & networking event, finishing with a magical extravaganza in Oxford’s oldest college, Balliol.

Thank you both so much for last night’s event. It was amazing. Penningtons Manches LLP 

On behalf of myself and Matt we’d like to thank you and the team for organising such a fabulous afternoon and evening. It was the first time we have managed to attend one of your events and felt it informative and enjoyable and a good use of our time due to so many venues being in one place at the same time with the added bonus of having the privilege to experience some of the venues for ourselves. RSVP Venues

Great to meet you at the end of the evening, thank you for a very productive and well organised afternoon and evening. SafiSanaEvents

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the invite to the Magical Showcase yesterday. It was great to see the diversity of venues that are in and around Oxford and is something I will definitely share with the team. I made some great contacts and had a truly magical evening. RSVP Venues

Just wanted to thank you and the team for an exceptional event yesterday. The mix of great networking opportunities with the creativity of the theme really hit the mark and really showcased some of what Thames Valley has to offer. Such a wow factor and love the use of the stage school combined with the Alchemist to add that extra flair. Theolytics

We really enjoyed it and found the contacts extremely useful.  I can only imagine how much work you must have put in to make it such a success.  The dinner at Balliol was really the highlight of the evening – what a place. ….these events are a really great way to make new contacts. Zogenix

Thanks very much indeed for a wonderful evening last Thursday.  I really appreciated the introduction to several interesting new venues.  We always tend to look towards London, Marlow and Windsor so it was beneficial to see alternative local possibilities. Energizer

I would like to say what an amazing afternoon I had whilst at the Said Business School, Oxford Ashmolean and the Balliol College last Thursday.  It was seamless, certainly a wow factor, and great to meet new faces, from exhibititors and PA’s themselves.  Jamie the magician even wowed us with some close up magic, perfect entertainment and a talking point. Great to meet the contacts at the venues, and definitely food for thought of new locations…Kubota

Thank you again for a great event – a great range of suppliers and all very relevant for my client-base, I’ve come away with a greater knowledge of a range of venues in the Thames Valley.  Helmsbriscoe

You did a fantastic job; it’s the first ETV Showcase event I’ve been to, and it was a brilliant experience.I loved the format and the “intimacy” of the showcase where I could speak directly with the suppliers in an informal setting. The upshot of the short introduction to Thames Valley is that RQA can begin to consider the area for our events. We never realised there was so much on offer, and so close to the major airports. RQA

Thank you for such a lovely evening, I really enjoyed it and it was extremely well organised.We will definitely look into using some of these venues and entertainment in the future when needs arise. Alcamus
