Event Management

Gallus Events offer bespoke event management for any organisation and for any type of event

We specialise in supporting large meetings, conferences, sales conferences, away days and exhibitions.

We use all of our knowledge and experience across the whole team to create dynamic events. We work closely with clients to help them shape their event. We are proactive and suggest innovative and creative ways for clients to achieve their objectives.

We add substantial value when clients wish to run innovative, industry leading and challenging events. Our knowledge of meeting design and event technology allow us to deliver cutting edge events.

If you are looking to source an event management company to manage a “traditional” event, it is unlikely that Gallus Events would be your ideal partner. However, if you are looking to run an experience that delivers exceptional ROI then we would be interested. Please do get in touch to discuss how we can support your events.

  • Event Consultancy – commercial event businesses

    Gallus Events are able to help startup event businesses as well as experienced events companies. Gallus Events are able to look at your events like no one else. We can train or help your experienced events staff to look at restructuring your events. We can work with you to target a new market or improve the events you already organise. We are there to fill in any gaps and provide the knowledge to advise your events team.By providing tailored training, meeting design or event consultancy Gallus Events have supported the following commercial event businesses: AramCo, Concerto Group, Reed Exhibitions, Sage Publishers.

  • Event Consultancy – associations

    No one quite understands association events like Gallus Events. We appreciate the unique environment within associations. All three of our Event Consultants have run association event departments. Our Event Consultants therefore instinctively understand the challenge for your association as you strive to offer as much value as possible with the budgetary constraints of a not for profit organisation. The majority of our consultancy has been supporting Event Managers and Director Generals in all sizes of UK association and large international associations including, in recent years, the Institute of Engineering and Technology, the British Dietetic Association, the Design Business Association, Association of Project Safety, The NHS Confederation and the European Wind Energy Association.

We now have a new model for future events and demonstrated an ability to engage with our members in new and exciting ways. This was only achievable by working with William's team at Gallus Events.

Chief Executive / The British Dietetic Association

After many years of delivering a routine annual conference format, the BDA decided a complete review of its leading event was required. The feedback has been immensely positive and other associations are now asking us how we did what we did. This shows we have delivered something truly innovative and ground breaking, something we are very proud of.

"We wanted to create a dynamic, creative and innovative event that delivered top quality content. We wouldn't have been able to deliver this type of event without the support and direction from Gallus Events. I must say that working alongside their team I learned a tremendous amount”

"Gallus Events detailed consultancy hit the nail on the head. By adopting their planned and strategic approach to the content, for all of our seven shows, the educational programme will play an important role in increasing the number of visitors and hosted buyers to our shows. It will also play a role in recruiting, recapturing and retaining exhibitors."

“I had an brainstorm with William about the meeting design of an international conference. In a very relaxed way, he let me see the program in a different light. By asking questions and giving examples of projects from his own considerable experience. This way he inspired me and we were able to improve our first concept to a next level.”

Chief Executive / Design Business Association

“William worked with the DBA to do our event consultancy in 2012 bringing his knowledge and experience to bear on our events programmes working with us to address the challenges when introducing new systems and processes to the way we work. I’m delighted to say that coupled with an extremely hard-working and talented events team at the DBA, 2013′s programmes are delivering against our strategic aims, attracting much higher numbers of delegates and generating far greater levels of profitability. Want to know the secret? Hire William. We recouped our investment on one event alone.”

"The CFA institute use UK event consultancy company Gallus Events: "We’re all so pleased to see the results of William's strategy come to fruition. We not only saw a big increase in the number of paid delegates, but also in the awareness and traffic to our event site. There's still a lot more that we can do, and I'm sure William's suggestions will be invaluable"

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for the last couple of days. For the last 6 months I have felt like I am on a treadmill that I couldn’t get off, but now I can (well after some more hard work but I see the light at the end of the tunnel). You have put the fire back in my belly, so thank you and I am excited to see what the coming months bring working with your proposals"

Event Manager / NHS confederation

Whilst we have a successful annual conference, we are keen to bring in new ideas to keep the audience engaged and for them to come back year on year. William has delivered a number of workshops for us, giving staff the tools and confidence to plan new and innovative sessions. He has been able to adapt the workshops to meet the needs of the participants. We are still in the early days of planning the 2016 event, but the added value and impetus these workshops have brought to the table, will ensure the continued success and growth of our annual conference.

William was a massive help to me, giving a second, well-informed perspective not only my events programme but my approach to sponsorship. His fantastic ideas have made me rethink my strategy and I will be making a great deal of changes! I can’t recommend William highly enough and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Managing Director / White Light Media

"I've been working with Gallus Events on an ambitious new whisky festival, to be launched off the back of our World Whisky Day project. I’ve been hugely impressed by the creative thinking that William and his team bring to the process – they have a wealth of ideas for turning every aspect of an event into a talking point that engages and excites the audience. They're also very strong on the practicalities of event management and have a refreshing commitment to delivering profit – as well as remaining flexible and able to tailor their service according to changing circumstances.
