Coastal Event Services was founded in 2014 by Sarah Walker, to provide local event management in South Devon, building on her background of corporate and hospitality experience.
"Back in 2003, I was working for Barclays Bank in London as a Personal Assistant and happened to mention to my boss that I wanted to get into events...a few weeks later I was guiding 200 delegates around an exhibition hall, armed with a branded t-shirt, walkie talkie and green umbrella. There was no going back! Since that day I have clocked up over 100 events; from weddings and charity balls, to 3-day exhibitions and pharmaceutical conferences for thousands of delegates. I've worked at the Tower of London, Ricoh Arena football stadium, hotels and conference centres across Europe and even at a Shangri’la resort in Oman. Whatever the occasion, the key to any event is planning, an eye for detail and careful management of your budget!"

What our clients are saying
Definitely recommend!!Sarah was great to work with and very knowledgeable in her field. I needed an event manager with their own initiative and ability; Sarah was that person. I will definitely be using Sarah for my future events.
Nicola Davies, Inconnection
We wanted to write to say thank you for being so supportive and resourceful whilst we planned our wedding and for making the day run so smoothly. We had an absolutely perfect day, in no small part thanks to you. We really feel that you went above and beyond, particularly thank you for staying on as late as you did. Everything was so much less stressful for having you there! We know who to turn to if we need to plan an event again!
