Hear it from others

Summit Events are based in London and have been organising sector leading industry networking events for over 25 years. Our aim is to provide a high-quality, personalised service to our clients, and ensure that they get the maximum value from each event. We are proud of our reputation and the long term relationships we have built through our consistent service.

“Great opportunity to meet a range of relevant suppliers without a hard sell. The strategy sessions were great opportunities to hear about other organisations and case studies as well as network with other peers. I feel that I have made some really great contacts as well as learned about products and services that will help me. Very well organised.”

Rosie Ranganathan, People Director

“To be honest I was sceptical attending as my experience of similar events in the past has not always been positive. Having had a good pre-meet with the Summit Events team there was something about this event though that seemed different. When I arrived it was clear that the quality of attendees, relaxed atmosphere and attention to detail was a recipe for success. This was borne out by the first few one to one meetings that were open and enlightening. The key for suppliers is to build relationships and share market insight rather than 'sell' services. Following that recipe we have identified a number of opportunities to progress discussions and explore synergies that more than meets the ROI expectations for the budget spend.”
