Venuemasters Conference demonstrates 'the power of communication'

Venuemasters Conference
Based around the theme ‘how to influence through the power of communication’ the 2013 Venuemasters annual Conference was hailed a triumph. The event brought together 116 delegates from over 40 academic venues and was held at Conference Aston, which has recently undergone a £5.4 million re-development and expansion to transform their existing space.

With an abundance of learning opportunities from inspiring workshops to motivational keynote presentations, it was the enthusiasm of the community of delegates that truly made it a success.

The Conference began with a warm welcome from Venuemasters Chair, Vanessa Gouws who set the scene perfectly for the speakers who followed. Chris Hughes used his charismatic style to motivate delegates with practical techniques to overcome challenges and create solutions. Geoff Ramm then took delegates on a high speed trip around the globe to observe some of the world’s greatest marketing ideas. The Conference was brought to a close by the first female controller of BBC One, Lorraine Heggessey whose amusing anecdotes brought to life important elements of business including, managing talent and moving outside of your comfort zone to implement change.

The programme found the perfect balance of learning and networking opportunities with interactive and informative sessions on a range of topics including tried and trusted ways of promoting your venue online, social communications that support long term sales results, producing accurate proposals and understanding the latest industry research.

Natalie Hudson, Marketing and Membership Manager commented: “It’s always great to see so many delegates from different academic venues come together to network and share best practice. Feedback has been extremely positive with 89% of those that attended rating the overall content as outstanding. We look forward to another fantastic Conference in 2014.”
