Venue finding and event management agency, Conference Care held its first mini-expo of the year this week, opening its doors exclusively to independent venues.
The Independent Venue Expo was an excellent opportunity for venues that are not part of a major hotel group to spend quality time with events consultants, and gain a true insight to scope and scale of work undertaken on a day to day basis.
Attendees received a presentation on the business by Director Andrew Deakin, followed by an open forum, where an engaging question and answer session took place.
Representatives from the HBAA’s membership included, Rudding Park, The Mermaid Conference Centre, Heart of England Conference & Events Centre, Longleat House & Safari and The National Motor Cycle Museum.
Andrew Deakin said, “Our clients often require something a little unusual or unique in their choice of venue – in 2013, Conference Care placed £5 million pounds worth of business into venues which were not part of a group. In order for our clients to benefit from the added value of strong relationships, it is vital that we continue to communicate openly and work in partnership with these venues as the market gains strength.”
