About Us

History

Banks Sadler is a global meetings and event management agency. Established in 1982 in London, it is still privately owned and fully independent. The founding directors came from the marketing and events department of Grand Met Hotels and recognised a gap in the market for a professional, independent event management and venue sourcing service.

In the last ten years we have responded to our clients’ need for regional support and opened offices in York (2005), Paris (2007), Düsseldorf (2007) and New York (2011). A true global presence will become reality in 2015 when we open an office in Shanghai.

The meetings and events industry has seen major changes over the last 30 years and Banks Sadler has been at the forefront of that evolution. Today, we are recognised as one of the leading names in the event management and venue sourcing sector and enjoy a reputation second to none.

Our desire to work collaboratively with clients (‘your partner in successful events’) is the bedrock of our business. We have an ethos of stringent self-evaluation and continuous improvement to ensure current and future clients receive the best event management service every time.
