Your Gateway to Marrakech

Corporate & Incentive Travel Specialists

what we do

Epic Morocco Events is a British-owned events management company based in Marrakech. We specialise in a range of styles of corporate events and incentives. The team is led by Charlie Shepherd who has two decades of comprehensive travel industry experience behind him, over a decade of which has been spent running Epic Morocco in Marrakech. Charlie is a family man, and the close-knit, hands-on team at Epic Morocco Events mirrors this.

From conception to delivery, great events are invariably complex but experience has taught us that the best results are achieved by applying simple principles. Our philosophy is keep it straightforward, efficient and streamlined for you the client, and we place the highest value on teamwork, organisation and client care. The nature of events is complicated but we are not.

Our team comprises a group of travel professionals who are passionate about Morocco, and passionate about showing guests what’s really special about a destination that boasts an enormous wealth of riches. At short haul distance from major European cities, and offering world-class infrastructure – from exceptional hotels to superb specialist service providers – Marrakech offers a range of possibilities that are simply not achievable in much of Europe. Combine these possibilities with a touch of flair and our ability to think outside the box, and the frontiers stretch over the desert horizon.

At home with small intimate groups of top directors or larger company incentives, our approach is the same – to offer variety, quality, and to provide a rich experience to live on in the memory.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to find out how we can bring Marrakech to life for your corporate or incentive group and we’d be delighted to talk through your requirements and draw up a proposal for you.

Meet Our Marrakech-Based Team



Charlie is the founder of Epic Morocco and has been working in tourism for two decades. After an extensive period of world travel he joined a Latin American tour operator and managed their adventure tours department. After seven years working in London he felt it was time to spread his wings and set up his own company. Epic Morocco was born after a series of visits to Morocco when he and his better half fell in love with the country. His hands-on approach to managing his company has won Epic Morocco many loyal clients and his ground knowledge and local relationships help Epic Morocco to stand out from the competition. He divides his time between creating exciting itineraries, looking after clients, managing the day-to-day running of the company from their office in Marrakech, running ultra marathons, and bringing up three young children.




Stef joined Epic Morocco recently, and brings with her a wealth of private events experience. She is a multi-tasking genius who brings to our events a calm focus and a “zen” attitude. Amongst the work, she manages to find time to practise her passions of yoga and Chinese medicine.

The Boss’s Verdict :

Incredibly calm, pragmatic and streetwise, Stef is a dream to have working on the events side of our business. Her book of contacts, amassed over 12 years in Morocco, is extensive and it would be hard to find a more capable, energetic and passionate character.





Mariem, born and raised in Marrakech, heads our on-the-ground operations department, ensuring the smooth running of all of our trips.  She has a young son, has a penchant for nice restaurants, and likes rather too much sugar in her coffee.

The Boss’s Verdict : 

While we are all off looking after guests in Morocco, Mariem is very often the one responsible for the less fun tasks back in the office. A true ship-steadier and a safe pair of hands, Mariem is the Rock of the Epic Morocco team.





Jamila joined Epic Morocco’s Operations department in 2015 and comes from a background of working in tourism in her home town of Agadir. With her new job came a change of lifestyle from the seaside resort of Agadir to the frenetic oasis town of Marrakech. Jamila speaks multiple languages and has a great thirst for knowledge.

The Boss’s Verdict :

Jamila seems to love working and what more can a boss ask! She is always keen for a new challenge and likes to keep occupied, which is a good thing working in tourism. Her knowledge of the “bigger picture” in tourism makes her a very useful addition to the team.




Saaid is one of our longest standing team members. He works as a guide both in Marrakech, and, when we take groups into the hills and deserts of Morocco. When he’s not working (he works a lot), he likes cycling, socialising, and he’s a pretty serious football fan.

The Boss’s Verdict : 

We always like to show our guests an experience that goes beyond the souks of Marrakech, and Saaid’s expert knowledge, enthusiasm, organisational skills, and inter-personal capabilities make him invaluable to us in the remoter areas in which we work.






Lahoucein is a Berber from the High Atlas Mountains who has settled with his six children in Marrakech. His role is to coordinate our team of expert guides. A qualified city and mountain guide himself, he brings maturity and experience to the team.

The Boss’s Verdict :

Lahoucein is a rather unique character. Knowledgeable and educated beyond his simple upbringing in a remote village, he offers us several options as leader or organiser. His contacts and his in-depth historical insight make him a versatile and supremely useful member of the team.




Simo is from Marrakech, and is the youngest member of the Epic Morocco team. He is a versatile young man who divides his time between assisting the operations team, and helping our guides out in the field. Simo has a creative streak in him and he enjoys making films and DJ-ing.

The Boss’s Verdict : 

Just like every film shoot needs a fixer, every event needs a runner. Simo is a superbly capable assistant, and an excellent executer of diverse tasks, from sourcing guest gifts in the souks to servicing client requests, however obscure.
