Who are Event Management Services?
Event Management Services (EMS) embodies a wealth of international experience in the business conference industry. Founded and led by seasoned conference professionals, Carol Baines and Suzy Sclater, EMS enjoys a reputation for high quality events executed flawlessly.
Our team of professionals are far more than just “good organisers”. We think strategically with the client organisation to:
- Design a conference agenda that translates into a “must attend” for the target audience
- Create a marketing campaign to drive registrations to match the target profile
- Develop sponsorship packages to fund the direct costs of the conference
- Build an enduring relationship with delegates before, during and after the event
Our in-house team will manage the whole event for you, from securing the speakers and the venue; to designing a new look for your marketing communications, to creating some fun catering and entertainment options onsite. You can be confident that your event will be run to schedule, according to budget and without a hitch.
Key Members of the EMS Team
Our Founder Suzy Sclater
Suzy Sclater is a highly experienced event marketing and project management professional having spent more than 17 years in commercial events management. Suzy specialises in marketing, creating and growing the event brand, establishing attendee communities and maximising both audience numbers and event revenue.
After gaining valuable experience on the venue side of the industry, Suzy started her commercial conference career at BIS Strategic Decisions, an IT advisory firm, now part of Forrester Research.. Spending 10 years at the organisation, through two acquisitions and business transformations, she gained experience in both the UK and in North America in logistics, marketing and project management roles within a rapidly expanding conference division. Suzy’s role as Events Marketing Director led her to develop her international marketing expertise, creating a tool kit for entering new geographic markets.
Before co-founding EMS with Carol Baines in 2004, Suzy acted as an independent conference organizer, producing industry conferences for specific IT vertical markets. Her projects ranged from conference planning and budgeting, speaker recruitment, marketing strategy and execution, to onsite event coordination and overall project management – in short, business conferences from concept to completion.
As the business at EMS has grown and our client portfolio has expanded, Suzy has focused on effective marketing strategies for conference and training courses – leveraging all the new opportunities that digital marketing has brought to the industry.
