Thomson sport – Arsenal Dinner, March 2011

In my experience of organising hospitality events around the globe, the best event planners I’ve found are wedding planners- which is why I contacted Clare from Barcelona Wedding, for help with the Arsenal Executive Dinner prior to the Barcelona v Arsenal UEFA™ Champions League game in March 2011.

Clare very quickly took on board my requirements and was able to provide me with an in-depth proposal with her recommendations for our dinner.  Clare selected a couple of fabulous venues within Barcelona for us to look at and consider.

We then met with Clare a couple of weeks later and immediately upon meeting her I knew that our event was in safe hands.  Clare is very knowledgeable about the area and has some great contacts and some very creative ideas.

The event was project managed all the way through by Barcelona Wedding including the invoicing of suppliers, provision of flowers, candles and entertainment and liaising with the venue to ensure everything was perfect.

On the night of the event the venue looked amazing – this was down to the hard work put in by Clare.  Nothing was too much trouble.

The catering company she recommended, Sensacions, were excellent.  The food was beautifully presented, plentiful and the waiters with the Porros added to the wonderful ambience of the evening.

If I had a Clare in every destination I worked in my life would be so much easier!  The biggest compliment I can pay to Clare is not only would I trust her with another one of my events, I’d trust her with my own wedding.

Thanks to Clare and her team at Sensacions.
