Event Connect - providing event transport solutions across the UK

Event Connect - providing event transport solutions across the UK.

You’re a busy event organiser, with a never ending “to do list”. We get it! It doesn’t matter how big or small your team are, let’s face it everyone could be doing with “one less job to do”. That’s where we come in.

Getting the right transport solution is essential for the success of any event, but without the expertise in the transport industry you’re often left at the mercy of your supplier, regardless of how good they are. Not to mention the additional work involved in trawling through your supplier list (if you have one) to check availability, attain the best deal, working up an operations plan, plus the endless amount of admin and time spent liaising and setting up contracts and schedules. It almost becomes a job of its own.

So, wouldn’t it be nice if someone could take this stress away and allow you to focus on organising other parts of your event, safe in the knowledge that you’ve got the best deal and that your guests will be transported from A to B by a reliable team of experts? I think we know the answer to that one already… And that’s where we come in.

So who are we and how can we help you?

Here at Event Connect we specialise in providing transport solutions for all types of events across the UK from conferences to excursions you name it we’ve done it! That’s why key partners such as UKinbound have selected us to be their transport provider for this year’s UKinbound Convention. We’re reliable, cost effective and know what we are talking about when it comes to transport provision.

With our UK wide network of road transport partners and vehicles ranging from; coaches, luxury minibuses and executive cars, we work as an extension of your team providing a full service, tailored transport solution to suit both you and your customers.

Whilst technically, we’re not a broker, you’ll find that working alongside Event Connect one of the main advantages is that we offer benefits similar to those of a broker, plus lots more. We’re known as being a full service transport provider. So what does that really mean? We pride ourselves on our personalised approach and our ability to work as an extension of your team to scope, select, manage and deliver a transport solution bespoke to your event. Meaning that we’ll get to know your event inside out making sure that all areas of transport support are covered.

We know that no two events are the same, so we work alongside you to provide the best transport solution for your event, we don’t do “off-the-shelf” service provision. Plus, we do all the hard work when it comes to getting the best price. As part of the Abellio Group, we are one of the biggest transport providers within the UK giving us buying power, which enables us to get rates which smaller (and larger) companies can’t always get. We have access to fleets across the UK allowing us to tap into local transport operators who have regional knowledge, contacts and experience. We have a 24 hour event control centre providing you with on the ground information to ensure your event transport operates as seamlessly as possible.

With Event Connect you’ll gain; security, reliability, expert knowledge, time and resource savings, plus a whole lot more added value when you book your event transport with us.
