Team love were an absolute joy to work with. Always professional, hardworking and fun. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
I have worked with Tom and Dave for a number of years now and in particular on 2 new major events that came to Bristol, See No Evil and Love Saves the Day.
Both events were ambitious in their scale and scope and thus were subject to close scrutiny and support by the Bristol Safety Advisory Group.
Throughout the planning process, Team Love are accessible and open in their communication and the quality and timeliness of their planning documentration is first rate.
In particular, their willingness to engage, listen and take advise from agencies is a real strength that sees them at the cutting edge of event planning in the City.
Team Love have proudly produced events for the European Green Capital (the prestigious award presented by The European Commission to recognise a city’s ability to demonstrate rapid progress and continuing ambition across a wide range of environmental and green business aspects) introducing green policies across all of our events and working closely with suppliers who demonstrate sustainable practice.
“We recognise that events of the size that we produce will inevitably have an impact. Therefore we have an environmental, economic and social responsibility to the area local to our event sites.
Our goal is to have a positive footprint; to reduce environmental impact associated with the event, to add value to the local area where possible and create new opportunities for people living nearby.”
