Megan Dillon is a Senior Marketing Executive at Natives. Natives are the UK’s leading education-specialist digital marketing agency, and this was their second large digital marketing events they organised.

Megan, why did you choose Woburn House for your event?
Woburn House is in a fantastic location in the centre of London and is easily accessible being so close to major underground and train stations. It is also the home of Universities UK, Vice-chancellors’ membership body representing the UK Higher Education, which fits well with our audience and what we do.
How did you find the booking process?
What I liked about the booking process was that I saw the venue beforehand and the staff were accommodating and responded quickly, which is extremely useful when organising events.
Tell us about your experience on the day…
We travelled here from Brighton. We got the train to Victoria and then a tube to Euston, which was a very simple journey. Many of our delegates also commented on the venue’s convenient location. We arrived to find the set up was exactly as we wanted, and it worked well for our day. I found the staff extremely helpful on the day, both Magda and Michael were around early in the morning to help set up and provide us with anything extra we needed. The catering area allowed delegates to network which is what we were hoping for. Staff members were also extremely helpful when letting people know that lunch was ending etc.
I was very impressed with the AV. Michael was a tremendous help from pre-event until the end of day. He was very professional and took on all our AV needs. Presentations and sound all ran smoothly and added to our smooth running of the event.
Overall, Woburn House was perfect for our conference and we will definitely use it in the future. The staff on-hand were all extremely professional and went above and beyond our needs. I would highly recommend Woburn House.
