Case Study

VIP Transport for Gala Dinner

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Brief

Gala Dinner

The client hosted a gala dinner on board The Royal Yacht Britannia and required a luxury chauffeur service for 25 VIP couples which included partners of the business, employees and clients. This was the company’s flagship event of the year and they needed dedicated chauffeurs for each couple to take them from their home address or hotel to the start of the red-carpet. The key priority for the client was to assign a company that could cope with the capacity of the vehicles required and to manage any ongoing changes – essentially ticking off event transport from the organiser’s to-do list.

Location

Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh

Our Solution

In Scotland, our extensive all burgundy fleet allowed us to help the client meet their event objective of creating the ‘wow factor’.

As the guests were travelling at rush hour, we pre-planned all routes ensuring that the chauffeurs had enough time for each guest to arrive on schedule. On the evening of the event, lead guests (or their PAs) were sent a text message in advance of their car arriving, confirming their collection time and chauffeur details. Dockside, we had two senior chauffeurs, managing the seamless drop-off and collection of all event guests. Many of the couples were delayed leaving the event so having our on-site team allowed the correct vehicles, allocated to each couple, to be brought to the end of the red carpet ahead of their departure. With constant changes being communicated by the on-site coordinators, all chauffeurs were fully aware of alterations to their departure times and locations.

Feedback

Your team was professional and accurate from the very beginning to the end – taking away a lot of the stress that can be caused when arranging chauffeurs for many VIPs on the same evening. All your chauffeurs were of a very high standard and many compliments were received from our guests. We will certainly use Little’s again in the UK and look to use you when our clients travel abroad. For the first time in a long time, I had 100% trust in a company that things would run extremely professionally and accurately and it was great to have peace of mind to enjoy the evening as an organiser – rather than worrying and checking arrangements constantly.
