Tell us about 'The Source'
The Source is the definitive destination for your event-planning journey. Using our industry expertise and knowledge we have hand-picked a diverse selection of brands and vendors to help YOU create the perfect event â€“ whether itâ€™s a wedding, a corporate party, or a birthday celebration. We are literally opening up our black book and sharing it with you. This, coupled with the latest trend led news, ideas, advice and inspiration from around the world, will help inspire you and guide you to achieve the event that youâ€™ve always dreamed of. There is no subscription, no commitment â€“ just great contacts and advice.
Tell us why you had the idea
We both have a passion for event planning but the idea was born out of the frustration that we saw clients and friends were having when searching for event suppliers and inspiration. They were finding that most of the directories out there were nothing more than long lists of meaningless names and numbers - really not very inspiring and certainly not very helpful! We felt that it was important to bring together a collection of exciting, innovative brands that all have a proactive approach to exceeding customer service, and showcase their products, bringing their company to life to help you find the perfect solution to every aspect of your event.
Tell us what we can expect
The answer to your prayers! The Source is not just a directory of chosen partners - it is the first step on your planning journey. Youâ€™ll hear from the brand ambassadors themselves, follow guest contributors sharing their inspiration for the perfect event and benefit from special offers by linking to our brands directly through The Source site. And it will be full of inspiration, trends, advice and all the latest event news. The Source will be a service that you'll not want to plan another event without. #TheSource

Tell us who you are
The team behind The Source are Talya Zysblat and Aron Schlagman. Talya has a degree in event management and balances her passion of organising events for both corporate and private clients with being a busy mum of four (for whom sheâ€™s had to plan many of her own events!) In the past, Talyaâ€™s entrepreneurial drive has seen her set up a successful gift business and, for her, customer focus and relationship building are always at the forefront of her endeavours. Aron has worked in the events industry for the past 15 years, heading up events teams for some of Londonâ€™s premier luxury hotels including The Savoy Hotel, London and The Four Seasons at Park Lane, as well as working within the corporate events sector for the likes of Goldman Sachs and Investec Bank. In 2013 Aron set up WHiTEPAPER Events, a Design, Production and Management company that specialises in the creation of private and corporate events of any size. Aronâ€™s passion and drive for both creativity and the exceeding of expectation is only matched by his focus on ensuring that each event is truly tailored to his clients needs. We are both extremely passionate about building relationships - and none more so than those between client and vendor through the process of creating an event. Our site is your site â€“ it is here to advise you, inspire you, and connect you with the best in the business - and we always want to hear from you about how we can improve our service. We canâ€™t wait to hear from you. Talya & Aron
