DBF Events & Awards

What we do.

Created in 2010 to provide the suppliers and buyers quality events to build relationships.


"We like to really think outside the box and come up with unique ideas for our clients, but never forget what is important: People"


People buy into and from people. They buy from people they know and trust and you achieve this by building relationships. The first step to increase your MICE business".


“Be our guest at” and “All About People”


The company created 2 key events which allow buyers and suppliers to interact and build the all so important relationships which leads to trust and business. 

Delphine Fortuin


Delphine started her career at the Paris CVB in 1995, where she became director and set Paris on its course to become the leading destination for all MICE sub segments.


In 2006, Delphine moved with her young family to the UK and set up DBF Events Ltd in 2010. This move was triggered by requests from a variety of industry colleagues.
