Stuart Howitt Event Services

Event Solution Experts


Stuart Howitt, owner of Stuart Howitt Event Services found out about IT leasing when searching online for a cost-effective way of getting his new business access to the equipment and support that it needed to succeed.

Fast-forward 15 years and Stuart is organising live music events in Wembley stadium! Leasing gave Stuart the financial freedom to grow as a business and his HardSoft Flexi-Lease gave Stuart Howitt Event Services it’s very own IT department.

Along with first class service and products HardSoft offer a one-stop leasing solution to its clients, however big or small they are. When you lease with HardSoft you get access to the latest IT equipment and all the technical support, maintenance and advice your business needs.


Stuart Howitt Event Services, based in Kent, works with a variety of event venues. From building stages & setting up rigging at Wembley stadium to planning a wedding near you, Stuart Howitt Event Services focuses on bringing a bespoke set of solutions to make all events the best they can be.

Stuart has been a HardSoft client since 2003. Having worked for other event service organisations, Stuart decided to start his own business. Back then he was a New-Start looking to expand and seize his opportunity to create his own working world and HardSoft’s leasing solution has been with him every step of the way.

The HardSoft Solution:

Starting your own business is always tricky, so Stuart sought out some advice and got in contact with HardSoft to get the right kit on an affordable lease deal. HardSoft, back in 2003, was also a small business and at the time Stuart was dealing with one of our Managing Directors, Andrew Morgan.

Stuart’s lease gave him access to not just the hardware his business needed to grow without the intimidating up-front costs of buying outright, but more importantly, his small business also got its own HardSoft IT department fully equipped with IT Advice, Product Maintenance, Technical support, Installation services and round the clock customer care.

Now, 15 years on and countless PC and Mac leases later, Stuart Howitt Event Services are still reaping the rewards of both our fantastic products and customer service. After meeting his dedicated account manager, Ryan Kelly, face to face at the BVE exhibition at Excel, London in 2018, and after a brief stint with an Apple one-stop Pro Stuart decided to go for a PC and leased a brand new Dell XPS desktop to help him tackle his day-to-day.


Stuart Howitt Event Services has gone from strength to strength. What Stuart leased back in 2003 wasn’t just a product, he leased his small business’ very own IT department. Taking advantage of our Flexi-Lease ‘Change’ option, Stuart regularly keeps up to date with the latest IT equipment available and leases a wide variety of equipment, including both Apple and PC.
