Starkevents

Overview

Starkevents are currently celebrating 17 years of innovative professional event management and are a full-time event management company based in Glasgow and working all across Scotland. Starkevents have built their reputation on delivering highly professional, creative events for many parts of the Scottish business and corporate community.

From large conference projects to a single evening celebration we are able to create and deliver event projects which are stylish and innovative but also business focused and on budget. Starkevents have a close and collaborative working relationship with the Dundee and Angus Convention Bureau. In October 2015 we delivered the largest scientific conference ever to be held in Dundee - ISAM 2015.

We are also one of 5 preferred event suppliers to the Scottish Government (Marketing Framework Events Lot) so work in lots of areas of Scottish public life and also work with private sector clients to create memorable events.

Starkevents have the infrastructure to deliver seamless events – from Disaster Recovery Plans to fully supported IT Cloud systems and our own bespoke Register For Event online booking and payment system – but also the boutique approach that clients become long time partners who get to know individuals in the event team and are confident and secure in the commitment of the Stark team to deliver a highly professional event that meets each events’ aims and objectives.

Over the past 17 years we have been the event organiser of Scotland’s Modern Apprenticeship Awards Ceremony and Dinner, the PCO for the Business Tourism Scotland Conference and regular event contributors to projects for Transport Scotland, Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, Falkirk Council, and Oracle Scotland to name but a few!

Aidan Grisewood - Director of Rail Transport Scotland
May 2019

"I just wanted to say thank-you for all you and your team’s efforts over the last few months. Golden Ticket Saturday and Wednesday’s Royal Opening were fantastic occasions and feedback from both events - media, participants and ministers – has been overwhelmingly positive. My first-hand experience of attending both events was that the organisation was excellent, attention to detail was evident, and your staff were very professional and approachable. I know it’s been a long journey and the scope of the event has changed along the way along with all the challenges that has brought but everyone rose magnificently to the occasion."

Neil Brownlee, Head of Business Tourism, VisitScotland Business Tourism Scotland: Conference
May 2019

"I have had the pleasure of working with Starkevents on a number of conferences, most recently the Business Tourism Scotland: Conference last year and currently for the forthcoming 2014 edition. This conference is particularly demanding with a number of agencies, businesses and personalities all pushing forward ideas and vying for attention. The audience is also a challenging and diverse group. Ann and her team were excellent at pulling all the strands together and keeping everything, and everyone, in line and on time, including wise contributions at the planning and content stage. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Starkevents."

"I would not hesitate to recommend Ann and her excellent team at Starkevents. I have used Starkevents to develop and execute many major events both for the Oracle Corporation in Scotland, the Oracle Education Foundation in EMEA, and for Electronics Scotland. Starkevents have always delivered an event professionally, on time and in budget."
