We have also helped venues repurpose their events space to lettable office and desk space whilst using Rendezvous. Our longer established clients have realised the benefits of remote working for their team and easy access to Rendezvous. We’ve helped them move from the traditional installed on the premises model to our cloud-based SaaS model.
Many exciting projects
We’ve continued to expand our client base with the addition of international brands, UK venues and blue chip companies installing Rendezvous Events to power their events business.
Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza
These are two of the largest hotels in Liverpool under the management of Centre Island Hotels. With their conference, wedding and events market getting busier and busier, their current event management system did not provide the group with the reporting required to manage the operational element of the hotel whilst providing management with the sales and marketing data to support their position. Speed of deployment of their new system was a paramount decision in choosing NFS.
South Glamorgan County Council
Penarth Pier stands majestically looking out over the Severn estuary and is home to the iconic 1929 art deco styled refurbished Pavilion building with a new Head of Sales and Events recognising the need to streamline its business, it was evident Rendezvous Events fitted all their requirements. The client needed one system and a point of truth from enquiry to contracts, billing and enquires direct from their website into Rendezvous.
CH&CO, the holder of a Royal Warrant for catering services to HM The Queen, continues to install Rendezvous Events as its event management software of choice across its brand from Gather & Gather to Vacherin/Entrée.
Searcys create fabulous events across a portfolio of historic and unusual venues to include well known locations as the Gherkin and The British Academy. We are very pleased to have the stamp of approval from their latest customer, The Institute of Directors.
Unilever UK & Unilever Singapore
Hellmann`s mayonnaise, Sure deodorant, Magnum ice creams and Knorr stockcubes have one thing in common – they are all owned by Unilever, used by 2.5 billion people in 190 countries. The other interesting fact is Unilever use Rendezvous Events to manage their Four Acres International Training centres in both the UK and Singapore.

So why choose Rendezvous?
Listen to what our customers are saying
We have been able to track and check all bookings leading to a more streamlined service, giving us tighter control over invoicing both internally and externally. I’ve not really had the need to use the support desk as any issues can usually be worked out, but on the odd occasion that I have the process has been straightforward and very helpful and I appreciate the UK based support.
Their venue diary system works very well for us. Its functionality allows us not only to control the bookings of our various function spaces on a day-to-day basis but also provides us with sales tools and reporting capabilities, financial systems, operational set ups etc.
The system runs my business very efficiently. It allows me to see all the figures I need about history, where we are going, trends – and I can do my own charts. The information is all there, whenever I need it. It’s a brilliant thing for looking at my business wherever it goes.
Everything from the initial enquiry right through to the production of contracts, proposals, invoicing and final settlement – that all happens far more quickly and far more efficiently now within Rendezvous and it’s a great boon for our business. Already within the first month between our inquiry handling increased by 300%.
