The first day of my second week was the first time that I met a hotel and saw a presentation from them about what they do! Principal Hayley and Four Pillars Hotels both came in today which gave me an insight into what they offer.
Their hotels are located all over the country and have something to suit all people’s tastes and budgets as well as having facilities to cater for different sized events; they really have something for everyone!…

After a bit of a rushed journey from the office to the Macdonald Berystede we had a nice refreshing glass of pimms and some amazing canapés consisting of some indulgent mini burgers, interesting chilli popcorn and delightful asparagus wrapped in Parma ham waiting for us on the terrace, along with the lovely Mathew Turvey and Melissa Moore. The hotel looks very historical from the outside with a horse led theme inside due to being so close to the famous Ascot racecourse. The function rooms are beautiful and have some great …

After travelling for just over an hour and a half we found ourselves at the entrance to the Mercure Windsor Castle Hotel, what a sight, a beautiful traditional building with balconies and large windows. From the front the hotel looked quite large, but once we walked through the door it was even more grand and spacious than expected, kind of like a tardis, with the added benefit of a well appointed car park. We were welcomed warmly at the reception desk when we checked in. In my opinion first impressions …

After a long day in the office my colleague and I from Brief2Event and Square Events arrived at Bartley Lodge Hotel. We were greeted by a long, sweeping driveway that perfectly set up the country manor feel of the building itself our check-in was very fast, we were both delighted with the room we were staying in, very clean, modern but still within keeping with the country manor feel.
Shortly afterwards we met the lovely Nicki Smith for a drinks reception and a show round. The Baronial Hall is an …

The ‘MAC’nificent charity weekend organisers (Russ and Denise) attended the Square Events familiarisation trip at Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel. They loved the venue and thought it would be ideal for the charity weekend that they are organising, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd September 2013.
Russ and Craig (brothers in law) take part in the annual Macmillan 4×4 challenge, referred to as the ‘Mac’, partly because they enjoy it so much, but more importantly, because they raise money in aid of …

The New Forest has so much to offer, a wide variety of hotels, restaurants and cafés. We had an amazing opportunity to experience some of the many different things that can be done in the New Forest, from relaxing in the hotel bar to being on an exhilarating RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) ride.
The New Forest is an ideal location for a Masonic Ladies’ festival, although there are a few hotels in the area that are unsuitable due to size and/or price, they are all set in beautiful surroundings and …

From walking through the door we were made to feel special, the information given by reception while checking in was concise, we were made aware of the arrangements for dinner, when, where and whom we would be meeting. We were also told exactly how to get to our room, but the events coordinator then arrived to show us the way, which was helpful as we did have to leave the main hotel building to get to the blocks where the hotel bedrooms were situated.
The room was really well decorated, …

What a week! My first week working for Square Events and Perfect Weekend, my first Masonic Lodge Ladies Weekend experience, my first site visit to a hotel, well I suppose there is a first time for everything.
My name is Natasha, I joined the lovely team at Square Events Management just last week and I was thrown straight in at the deep end, as by Friday I was out on the road to meet Guy Mason (Director of Square Events) for a site visit at The Woodland Grange …

Responsibilities ahead of the event:
Choosing a venue – Obviously the most important decision as the success of the event will largely be measured on the numbers attending and people will not go …
