As Head of Marketing I am fortunate to work with a number of different venues for events and conferences, and I can hand on heart say that the team at Halo are one of if not the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Nothing is ever a problem for them and they are so good I think it would be worth them setting up as trainers in the field to other companies looking to improve their hospitality offering.Head of Marketing – Paris Smith

I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for helping make another event extremely successful! Nigel, Roy and the team provided yet again 5* service for the event and also made it extremely fun.Regional Executive - Solent Business Ball
Just thought I'd drop you a line to say thanks very much for your support till now. The first event was a real success and feedback was very positive. All the staff were very helpful and responded to our adhoc requests so quickly. Part of our messaging during the conferences is about making thing easy for customers and making them feel valued and this is exactly how they made us feel so please pass our gratitude to the team.Old Mutual Wealth
Thank you so much for everything you and the team did to make Saturday night the huge success it was. I cannot believe that we raised so much money! The room was absolutely buzzing and looked so amazing it really put everybody in the party mood. The feedback we have had from guests has been so complimentary regarding the whole evening. The food, entertainment in fact everything ensured that all feedback from everyone that attended thought the evening was exceptional. I really can not fault the evening.Karen and Francis Benali
I would really recommend Halo for helping to organise a party in St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton. I was so well looked after from start to finish and they always tried their best to suit my needs. Lots of guests complimented the set up and smooth running of the night. The Headteacher of our school said that it was the best prom she had been to in fifteen years and was delighted with the venue. We will definitely be returning next year. The food was AMAZING and 100 times better than where we have been previously. It was so well cooked, presented and delivered. The students and colleagues ate so much of it, it went down very well. The price is quite reasonable, given the standard of service Halo provide. Other establishments charge the same but do not offer anywhere near as good service as we had. We also had the opportunity for all students to have their photograph taken by the pitch side, which they loved. It was great for them to have their photo with where they actually were as opposed to being, anywhere, in a room. Many, many thanks to be given to so many members of staff that helped me along the way in planning a fantastic night that everyone will look back on fondly in years to come.Georgina - Wildern School
Just wanted to send a massive thank you to everyone at Southampton Football Stadium, Halo and the security team for their help for our wedding on Saturday 30th July 2016. To be more specific, Alex Mostyn, Carole and Jordan (the best double act!). We had probably hundreds of questions leading up to and during the big day and Alex couldn’t do enough to try and accommodate every request we had as well as putting our minds at rest throughout the day. From welcoming us first thing to saying goodbye at the end, the team were never too far away and always quick to make sure everything was perfect. Everyone was so professional, yet made the whole day feel relaxed. The security team knew exactly what to do and when! E.g. whilst posing for photos the security guards arranged the wedding dress perfectly. The venue itself is so eye catching and even though we are not huge football fans, we were not put off at all!! I will definitely be recommending this venue and its team to everyone.Jess & Will
