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.

Aneka started her career as a professional dancer but due to becoming ill with meningitis she hung up her tutu and discovered her love of turning nothing into something - entering the life of a entrepreneur and since then has not looked back. 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!
