Established in 2000 and based in Port Solent, Portsmouth, MYT operates on a local and international basis providing high end solutions to their clients varying needs.
We provide a full range of professional event management services with a turnkey approach for clients across many sectors. Some of our clients make full use of this approach and rely on us to manage the entire process, whilst others select from our broad range of services dependent on the nature and size of their event.
Janine Lancaster - Managing Director
Janine Lancaster is the Managing Director of MYT. With more than 25 years in the hotel and events industry, Janine brings her extraordinary passion into the business and very easily inspires people to trust and follow her.
After travelling and working in different countries around the world, Janine identified a gap in the UK market for an agency who were committed to a personal and unique venue finding and event management service. Transparency and honesty are core values to the MYT approach, as is attention to detail and a commitment to excellent customer service.
Still working with many of the same clients as when the company was first established, her exacting standards, laughter and unyielding enthusiasm carry her clients and her team forward to keep pushing boundaries and excelling.
When not organising events Janine doesn’t sit still for long and spends her free time hiking, cycling, sailing and relaxing with family and friends.
Rachel Bradley - Corporate Director
Rachel is an invaluable part of the core team since joining the team in the Companies infancy in 2003. With Rachel’s background of travel, hospitality and office management, she brings a sense of ‘all is under control’ in an office which is often a hub of event management craziness and deadlines. Her ability to remain calm and controlled under intense situations is one of Rachel’s key strengths.
A shared vision of working transparently, honestly with a high level of customer service is what brought Rachel to MYT in the early years and with these core values still at the heart of MYT and with Rachel’s wealth of experience she cascades the message to the team and the venues we work with.
Rachel enjoys the finer things in life and when not managing our clients you will find her enjoying a day’s sailing one weekend, hiking along the Jurassic Coast the next or partying at a Festival the next. All of the above will end with dinner and bubbles with her much valued family and friends.
Eva Natcheva - Senior Event Planner
Eva joined MYT in 2012 and is an integral and indispensable part of the team. Eva’s key strengths are her extraordinary attention to detail and speed of delivery. Eva shares the company ethos of going the extra mile for all our clients, no matter how big or small the event may be.
Eva speaks with pride about the largest event in which she was Assistant Project Manager alongside Janine – the IAPB 10GA, an event for 1200 in Durban, South Africa.
When not venue finding or building websites Eva spends her free time teaching as fully qualified SSI Scuba Diving Instructor and also enjoys snowboarding.

In her spare time Zoe is a keen hockey and cricket player.
