In our latest case study, we talk to Charlotte Spokes, FX Dealer and Online Platform Account Manager at Ebury, a global financial specialist. She discusses her experience booking an event through Hire Space – including which Venue Expert helped, and which cosy, après-ski-themed venue they decided on.

What does Ebury do and what's your role?

Ebury is a financial services company that supports growth through our FX, business lending and solutions products. We enable businesses to grow, and trade wherever and in whichever currencies they need – all securely and efficiently. I work in the dealing team, managing our online platform.

How did you hear about Hire Space?

We were referred by a contact of mine after we put out a request for suitable venues on social media back in September.

What venue did you choose and why?

We chose Bodo's Schloss for many reasons: it was a convenient venue for work, fitted in within our budget and had a great reputation for good parties. The venue is really quirky: it's modelled on an Austrian ski chalet and has Alpine food and drink, décor, and lederhosen, of course...

Caitlin at the venue was really on the ball with everything – the pre-event tastings, communication and organisation in general.

Were you assisted by a Venue Expert? How was your experience in dealing with him/her?

Nathan was the one who helped us find the venue and even set up a tasting session for us! He came up with loads of suggestions and initial pricing first, so we could narrow our search.

After the venue was booked, he put us in contact with them so we could figure out the additional little details and organise the rest of the event directly.

How did the event go? Were you successful in achieving your aims?

We had a great event! It ran really smoothly, and the team at Bodo's made themselves available to us all night to make sure we had a great time.

Would you use Hire Space again?

Yes, definitely. It takes all the hassle out of those tricky, time-consuming initial stages, meaning we could focus on the fun bits!
