An internationally renowned venue finding and conference management agency is celebrating 20 years. DeSouza Associates was established in 1995 after founder Lida decided to leave her position in the pharmaceutical industry and set up on her own. The agency specialises in sourcing the ideal venue for corporate events.
Proudly surviving two recessions, Lida DeSouza said “Twenty years feels like a milestone we should celebrate, particularly in this day and age. I’ve always felt that our strength in being small allows us to establish personal relationships with clients over a long period.”
DeSouza Associates have maintained their client base for many years and continue to grow the business mainly from referrals. She said “Our philosophy is all about truly understanding each of our customer’s requirements and collectively, the team at DeSouza Associates has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the events industry”.
Having the medical link, DeSouza Associates regularly act as a professional conference organiser for an international medical society, providing full event management for their international meetings and Workshops.
Due to growth and expansion, their office is now based in one of the most prestigious streets in Farnham, Surrey with a team of 5.
