Inspired Events has been founded by Bob Tolley, Alan Bayley and Roger Linley, who previously worked at agency Imagination. It plans to offer a network of six or seven stately homes that have never before been available for the hosting of corporate events.
It has already secured its first contract with the Broadlands estate, the home of Lord and Lady Romsey, in Hampshire. "We use the term boutique because they are slightly smaller venues than those already in the market like Blenheim and Brocket Hall," said Tolley.
"We provide a total event management service and we are not tied to contractors so we have greater flexibility than you might find at other venues," he added.
