etm productions has had the privilege and delight of teaming with Factor 3 on client projects for over 15 years. Toby, Barbara and the entire Factor 3 family have always worked with enthusiasm, creativity and efficiency to ensure a great outcome for all involved – from roaming robots to posing pugs – they’ve helped it all happen seamlessly. We wouldn’t consider a live event in the Spanish region without their tireless support. A 5*recommendation from all of us!

As a U.S. company who has worked with multiple DMCs throughout the world, I need to let you know just how great it was to work with Factor 3 Events!

When our client originally came to Barcelona, she initially met with another DMC. However, she didn’t feel like the venue recommendations were what they were looking for.

Upon contacting Factor 3 Events she instantly engaged with your company, and you rapidly and expertly identified the best venues for the project, providing an impressive selection of fabulous options! From that initial meeting, and throughout the preplanning and execution phases, everything was absolutely flawless! It was abundantly clear that you went out of your way, in every respect, to deliver an event of the highest caliber.

In short, the service at Factor 3 Events was exceptional and seamless, and your staff was an absolute joy to work with. The high level of professionality we experienced made the project run incredibly smoothly, and in particular we greatly appreciated the round-the-clock communication updating us on any changes, and by the clear-cut transparency of your budgets and ease of your processes in general.

We cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us!

Working with Factor 3 Events on this run-up to the complex kickoff event for our client was seamless. Communication was effective, all inquiries addressed and questions answered in a timely manner. Despite the multiple channels involved, we did not miss a beat. Factor3 made tough decisions seem simple too.  On site, the Factor3 team were present on the set-up and live event day, start to finish. We executed a flawless walkthrough with the client, and the team was always ready to help with any last minute requests, such as multiple kosher meals requested on site to be delivered in minutes … and post event: I have already received my final invoice. This makes reconciliation so much easier for me which is extremely appreciated as I move into my next events.

For our two internal team receptions, the Factor3 team and I made quick decisions allowing us to wrap up these dinners far ahead of onsite dates. I got all of the answers that I needed within days. We were able to customize menus at both venues, which the client was very happy about. The clients cannot say enough great things about these two dinner events. I am so grateful for Factor3’s help in making these such a hit.

My Factor3 team were true professionals and extremely good at what they do, and always had a smile on their face. Their quote was “how can I help”, and it put me truly at ease throughout these events

Thanks again and looking forward to future events with Factor3.  All the very best.

I wanted to say what a pleasure it was to work with Factor 3 and both of you individually. Nothing was ever too much trouble for you, you dealt with the multiple countries and multiple requests with ease, grace and with such support. It felt like you were all part of our own team, not a 3rd party supplier. It is rare to get that these days and I certainly haven't had that for a long time. You have helped deliver one of the most successful European Symposiums the client has had and for us, ensured we had nothing to worry about on the periphery while we delivered this event.

I have worked with Toby and Factor3 on so many occasions over the years and there are many reasons for this. Factor 3 are my first point of contact when planning projects in Spain. It’s so great to work with a team that bring the kind of production values and professionalism that one comes to expect of trusted partners and is always harder to find outside the UK. Since Factor3 is made up of such a talented mix of individuals they have the local knowledge, contacts and above all creativity not only to respond to a brief, but think beyond it and provide much much more. Its not just about that, they add value to what is delivered at every turn and also provide you with peace of mind. A Destination Management Company has too bad a name in my book so I would never describe Factor3 as this, rather I see them as the most trusted and reliable partner to work with in Spain. Factor3 is true enabling partner in event delivery - if you think you know what their areas of expertise are it's worth asking them again, because they can support events in so many ways

It is hard to find a trustworthy, sympathetic and loyal partner in this business – but if you have one, you should go for it. Within the last 7 years we have been working with Factor3 on many events – incentives as well as big events for our clients out of the automotive business. Apart from their creativity and manpower – they do know, how to arrange whatever is necessary even with spontaneous changes. (I) am looking forward to our next projects and please do not hesitate to get in contact.
