Pioneer Venue Solutions (PVS) are a global service provider who work with Venues & Event Organisers to bring Positive Change for Owners, Operators and Visitors through a variety of solutions & services.

Founded in 2018, Pioneer Venue Solutions, came about as a result of the shareholders (Dan Schofield, Chris Appleyard and Paul Childerhouse) ambition to bring positive change across the Venue & Event Industries.

Having each worked in senior positions across the industries, we know the value that informed and considered advice and support can bring to an organisation and with that in mind we set about building a business with a core ambition of working with, and for, our clients to help them improve the operation; whether that be in enhancing the visitor experience, in finding operational efficiencies or by having a positive impact on the bottom-line.

At our core we are a small team of salaried industry experts who work alongside a range of Associate Consultants which we hand pick based on the needs of our clients. Being boutique in nature we can tailor our approach on a client by client basis to ensure we are hitting the objectives of our clients at every stage of our engagement on a project.

Since launching we have worked hard to ensure we are delivering our services to the highest standards and we are proud to deliver our services adhering to the following international standards; ISO:9001, ISO:14001, ISO:27001, ISO:45001.

We also take our Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously and are proud to have partnered with both Foodinate (www.foodinate.co.uk) who we are working with to expand the Foodinate scheme across the Event & Venue worlds, and the Michael Carrick Foundation as a founder member of Club 16.

As a brand new company we are still building our portfolio of clients, projects and case studies. Prior to PVS being formed our team of Industry experts have worked on a wide variety of projects around the world and it is our work on these projects, amongst many others, that have helped to build our skillsets and knowledge base and are what allow us to deliver the services we do today as Pioneer Venue Solutions.
