Blazing Events, a corporate events organising company in Valencia, was created by Yola Sanders. Having worked for 5 years for Shell International in London where she organised exciting and successful events for the company, she decided to look for an opportunity to open her own corporate events company.
Valencia was the perfect place; the third biggest city in Spain, easy to fly to from all over Europe, and a city rapidly changing and growing in popularity with tourists and corporate incentive trips.
Before setting up the company, there were several years of research and getting to know the city of Valencia, which enables the company to be able to use their expert local knowledge and creative solutions to be able to organise all of their events.
Being the first British owned events organisation to set up and be based in Valencia, they have a unique advantage as to be able to provide foreign companies with the quality service they aim for with minimal stress, through carefully planned, organised and managed events.
With more and more companies realising the importance of incentive travel to boost morale of staff members, and the relative low cost of having a conference in Spain rather than in several other European countries, Blazing Events have been able to create diverse events that balance work and leisure according to their clients’ requirements.
They have successfully organised conferences and team building trips for a variety of companies from different European countries including; UBS Investment bank, AVL Powertrain Ltd, B Braun Medical Ltd, Singtel (Europe) Limited, IMG – Investment and Marketing Corporation Saxony-Anhalt, and celebrations for foreign companies based in Valencia, such as the 10th anniversary of Future Fibres S.L.U, where they organised a paella competition and party at the beach for over 100 people.
As well as organising the “serious” side of corporate travel such as first class accommodation, transport, English and specifically requested language speaking guides, conference and congress venue facilities, catering and VIP parties, they also organise fun day-time activities in the city, mountains and beach.
Blazing Events are optimistic about the future, as even though the travel industry is being affected by the present world-wide economic situation, many companies realise that in order to succeed they need to continue having conferences and team building events. Valencia is a city where they can have a fantastic time, and Blazing Events pride themselves on offering great quality and value for money.
