About Us

What we do…

Our business has been dedicated to supporting corporate companies with their event needs since 1994. As a result, we have been able to build up an extensive database of venues and a valuable network of key industry contacts in the UK, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Offering you a committed team that will provide an outstanding service to meet all your event needs, whether it is for a small seminar, a team incentive, a global conference or for your annual corporate party, your event will be delivered professionally and successfully with our help.

Undertaking all the time consuming yet vital tasks, our service is targeted to help you reduce the cost of administration, time and effort of your event. We work alongside you throughout the whole event process.

Now at 25 years of Business, Venues For Business is in the hands of two new owners with an additional 20+ years of experience between them; Amy & Magdalena.

Our Work History


Meet the Team

Amy Woodthorpe
Amy WoodthorpeDirector
Amy has worked internationally in roles spanning across event operations, event planning & coordination and most recently, sales account management of two ITV branded Live Experiences, This Morning Live & Love Island Live.

Her story started 12 years ago at Lainston House Hotel, where she met Magdalena. Amy Worked on the delivery of weddings and small corporate events operationally; Following this she then worked with Eventist Group and managed a pop up venue with a capacity of 1000 visitors per night as well as working on the event production & coordination on a number of events including RIAT & Farnborough Airshow.

Her experience of managing events of many different types, styles and capacities, means that she completely understands the need of an event manager, in order to find the perfect venue/hotel for their specific event.

She enjoys swapping her busy work schedule during the week, to go on long country walks with her two little dogs, Rufus & Taco at the weekends (AKA our PR executives here at VfB).

Magdalena Foulds

Magdalena has an eye for detail, with her history in hospitality she has knowledge of every aspect of an event. Her experience gives her the ability to narrow down the perfect venues suited to you. When not scouting venues, Magdalena is scouting for the latest fashion trends or adding a light boxing session into her mid-week routine.
