About Us

Experienced Event Management

Autograph Events is synonymous with global event management and venue finding of the highest calibre. By creating bespoke events and providing innovative solutions to our clients, we’ve developed long term partnerships with well-known brands who trust us to carry their message.

With HQ in the West Midlands and offices in London, the Autograph team is made up of an experienced team of event managers, producers, audio visual technicians and exhibition planners. Together we have worked with clients to organise spectacular events around the globe. We offer a modular service, which means that you can pick and choose which services you need to use us for. This allows us to work as part of your internal events team or to take ownership of an entire event and deliver a turn-key solution out of the box.

International Expertise, Local Support

We partner with many local service providers throughout Europe, America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. This allows us to deliver a service with local support anywhere in the world. It’s why we’re known for finding some of the most spectacular venues in the world.

Once you know where your event will be held we can help you to find local suppliers that you can trust. This can often be the most stressful aspect of any international event.

Our Team

Victoria Jenkins-Leigh

Managing Director

Victoria is the most operational Managing Director you are likely to meet. Having founded Autograph Events in 2009, Victoria is passionately committed to ensuring the highest levels of client service and has built strong and lasting relationships with her clients; many of who have been working with her since before she started Autograph.

Victoria has over 20 years’ experience in running events for the private, public and charity sectors for both B2B and B2C events. There are very few places in the world she hasn’t travelled to with her clients. As a result, her venue and destination knowledge is second to none.

Only recently Victoria has become the proud owner of 3 kittens, Ron, Harry and Hermione, named by her daughters all of whom keep her busy in her spare time.

Laine Bedford

Event Director

Laine has over 10 years corporate event management experience working in-house and for B2B agencies. She has references available for varied event types, including international conferences, gala dinners, networking events, partner meetings and training courses.

Laine has run commercially successful events with budgets ranging from £10,000 through to £1m+. This includes full project governance including budget management, contract negotiations and ROI analysis with reports to senior board level.

Laine’s spare time is spent on various social media channels following the daily life and wardrobe of Kate Middleton.

Laura Clarke

Office Manager

Having worked at Autograph since it was founded, Laura has got to know all of our clients and built lasting relationships. She has a reputation for having a meticulous attention to detail, and her quick wit and fantastic sense of humour always makes her a popular addition to our clients’ event teams.

In her spare time when she is not running around her very lively toddler, Laura enjoys playing netball and attending festivals.

Georgina Forsythe

Sales Manager

Georgina comes from a strong Sales Background, with over 14 years experience across a number of sectors including Travel, Hospitality, Recruitment, Corporate Sales and Events.

She loves being on the phone and has therefore been recruited to introduce new business into Autograph Events. Her passion for the industry lends itself well to this and she is really looking forward to seeing the business grow as her relationships with new clients develop.

In her spare time she’s normally running around after her 2 young children, but for fun she loves training for various running events and socialising with friends and gin!

Katie Hollinshead

Event Coordinator

Katie has joined Autograph Events straight from University. She has worked at a variety of arts, corporate and agricultural events with an in-depth knowledge of each. Her bubbly personality is infectious, and she always has a positive outlook.

From liaising with exhibitors and speakers to creating venue proposals and dealing with client enquires from beginning to end, Katie has the passion and can-do attitude that makes our client and delegate experiences truly memorable.

Katie’s creative talent is evident through her wonderful oil portrait paintings that she does in her spare time.
