Agents meet independent venues at the newly re-opened Repertory Theatre Birmingham

The iconic Repertory Theatre in the heart of Birmingham opened its doors on Monday evening (25th November) to welcome Conference and Booking agents from the area to view the newly refurbished Theatre which re-opened in September after a two-and-a-half-year redevelopment. The Agents were invited to attend The Independent Venue Showcase, organised by Marketing and Events Agency, CHS Group and to meet with over 30 venues from across the UK.  The Showcase was spread across the first floor gallery with a drinks reception, mini exhibition and dinner in the iconic venue.

A wide range of venues was represented from country house estates such as Longleat near Bath, 5 star The Mere Resort in Cheshire, to large conference centres such as Telford International Centre  and unusual venues such as Newbury Racecourse and The Monastery in Manchester. 

Emma Cartmell, Director of CHS Group explained: “We wanted a city centre venue and where better to showcase our great Independent Venues than this wonderful theatre in its centenary year and following its recent re-opening. Guests and exhibitors alike were delighted with the event, many Agentscommented on how great it was to be able to see so many venues in one evening”.

Karen Lavender, Business Manager of of CI Events said: “I really enjoyed it, it’s rare that we get to see independent venues as the office is always so busy they never get a chance to come in and present.”

CHS Group, who also organise the annual Conference and Hospitality Show in Leeds, plan to continue to run the Showcases for Independent Venues to meet with Agents in 2014, building on the success of 2013.
