Academic venue enquiries double year-on-year as reputation for quality and value growsVenuemasters has set record enquiry numbers for January 2014, demonstrating the increasing popularity of academic venues with event organisers. The total enquiries received by Venuemasters last month was double that of January 2013, suggesting increased awareness among planners of the quality and value of academic facilities. And with Venuemasters’ upcoming Academic Venue Show set to be the biggest yet, that reputation is likely to continue growing.
“We’re delighted with this record-breaking start to the year,” said Terry Billingham, Chief Executive Officer at Venuemasters. “All event and group accommodation orgnaisers are being invited to the Academic Venue Show, our annual exhibition of venues across the UK. It’s another fantastic opportunity to discover new venues, as well as to meet new contacts and attend exciting live seminars. We’re looking forward to meeting the event organisers we support throughout the year.”
The Academic Venue Show 2014 will showcase over 50 high quality academic venues from across the UK, as well as offering professional seminars and networking opportunities. The show’s seminar programme includes a live session by Paralympic medallist and broadcaster Ade Adepitan. The one-day event is free to attend and will take place at the ILEC Conference Centre, London on Wednesday 14 May.
