The guide includes hints and tips taken from event planners working across Lime Venue Portfolio’s business, as well as special advice from industry opinion leaders including Rob Davidson, MICEKnowledge, Kevin Jackson, The Experience is the Marketing / ISES UK President, and Andy Wardle, director of culinary, Levy Restaurants UK.
The activity will support the group’s Meetings Mean Business impact campaign, running throughout January, February and March, and is designed to encourage event organisers that want to go the extra mile for these important meetings.
“We’re really fortunate to work with so many outstanding event professionals across the Lime Venue Portfolio, and we wanted to share their advice with other eventprofs we work with,” comments Tracey Astles, Head of Sales, Lime Venue Portfolio. “Alongside our website and social media content, we want this guide to be about recognising event organisers who want to make their meetings special, as well as providing inspiration to others."
The guide is supported by offers from member venues within Lime Venue Portfolio, including winter day delegate packages with added value perks, discounted rates and complimentary entry tickets to venues such as Bristol Zoo Gardens.
There will also be a series of showcase days at venues, allowing event buyers to see the event spaces and network with industry colleagues. Liam Potter, Sales Manager at Imperial War Museum North, commented: “Our Showcase days are incredibly popular. They allow our customers to see the venue in action, experience our spaces, service, and food, all whilst building relationships and providing a networking event for regional event buyers.
Meetings Mean Business is the first of three impact campaigns created by Lime Venue Portfolio to deliver increased energy and activity around its venues.
