“I work with several organisations through the sponsorship of different events, but none are as positive, organised and client focused as when I work with Echo Events. I enjoy working with the team at Echo and know that every email exchange and meeting is going to add value and be a good use of my time. The team gives me the confidence that I know they will keep Nigel Wright Recruitment at the forefront of their minds, as the main sponsors, and suggest and utilise all appropriate branding opportunities for us.”

Justin Barlow, Marketing Director, Nigel Wright Recruitment

“We’ve worked with Echo Events on a variety of projects of varying sizes from seminars to large-scale award ceremonies. We’ve always found them to be approachable, knowledgeable and efficient in staging a successful event. We work with the team to define what we need to get out of a particular event to meet our business needs, and they deliver. Through sponsorship we’ve been able to reach new markets, and increase knowledge in the business community of what it is that Brewin Dolphin offer, and why we do what we do. We’ve found that invaluable.”

Neil McLoram, Business Development and Marketing, Brewin Dolphin

“Echo Events are always open to new ideas and finding ways to help us achieve our objectives.  We have worked with Echo Events for several years now and they have always been supportive.  The passion and commitment they show makes working with the team a pleasure.  Sponsoring the British Association of Critical Care Nursing Conference creates the opportunity to work in partnership with our customers to make better outcomes possible in the future.  The Conference offers the right audience in a positive environment to allow both the delegates and Industry to interact.”

Jon Hall, Partner, Burnt Orange
