Find new ways to protect and preserve the jewels within your Estate

SE&V work with a small number of historic estate owners who share a commercial desire to grow and enhance their estate for exclusive use events. Our team are venue management specialists with an enviable track record of success orchestrating development plans at unique venues. Together we can develop an events and hospitality proposition to chime with your ambition and safeguard the sustainability of your Estate for many generations to come.

An understanding of your world

We understand the rare and unusual challenge presented when your greatest asset is also your family home and the business of looking after it is in no way typical of any other family business! You’ll likely have a team of legal agents and factors helping you with the running of the Estate – our expertise lies in marketing, sales, business development, finance, catering and events. In essence, commercialising your offering.

Our aim is to help you develop a brand proposition for key and eager markets (e.g. weddings, private use, corporate events, film location, country sporting parties.) through our specialist business knowledge. Add to that digital know-how, and you have a visible route capable of delivering significant business to the Estate.

Working in line with your vision

Being a family home, there may be limits you want to set on how commercial you’d like the Estate to be. Perhaps you’d only like a few events a year, or only corporate dinners and not weddings? Let us understand your requirements and learn how best we can create value. Here are some of the many ways you can boost your resources through SE&V:

  • Develop a framework and preconditions for business growth using our market experience.
  • Develop a marketing proposition and framework to enhance your reputation and Estate.
  • Develop your brand through brand workshops and collateral design
  • Attract enquiries and increase your visibility through digital means including the SE&V website and bespoke website design, SEO and Social Media Strategies
  • Full enquiry management if required delivering the highest standards of service ensuring every potential client is dealt with efficiently and professionally resulting in high conversion rates
  • Full customer journey management if required from first call, to lights out.

Let’s make a world of difference to the bottom line
