ABOUT REM

 
 

Founded in 1997 by a Yorkshireman with a knack for events and organisation, over the last 20 years we’ve grown from an aspiring start-up to one of the country’s leading names in event management and delivery.

We love what we do, there’s no getting away from that, and this is why we work with events of all shapes and sizes from local music festivals, to large scale public events and huge cultural spectaculars. Our ethos is simple one, work hard on behalf of our clients and ensure that every penny of their budgets are used not only wisely but for maximum effect

We’re a small but passionate team with roots deep in Bristol and the South West, but on any given weekend you can find us on event sites throughout the country.
