Aneka, one of the TableCrowd hosting team will be on hand to make sure you are welcomed through the door and introduced to the most relevant people to you.

Setting up a Lifestyle Management company that has thrown celebrity events that has received international press coverage to providing business development for clients in the entertainment industry Aneka is a natural host!
