Julia Dowling

Founder & Managing Director

Luxury event specialist Julia Dowling started Snapdragon because she believed the event planning industry had a real need for planners who could combine creativity with stellar project management and world class service. Having planned events for high-profile clients, including senior business figures and celebrities, founder and managing director Julia and her team know the importance of flawless delivery. No matter how large a client’s budget, it’s about delivering quality and value.

Julia’s leadership has landed her a place on the Spear’s 500 three years running. In the 2019 publication, Snapdragon is one of only two event companies listed, while Julia is personally recognised as “best in breed”. Spear’s talks of her mission to “define a new standard of service for her private clients, no matter how exacting their requirements.”

The combination of event management, project management and commercial flair is what sets Snapdragon apart. Because of the extraordinary service offered by Julia and her team, many new clients are referrals from previous projects.
