We have many years of venue sourcing experience gained from finding imaginative, inspiring and appropriate event venues around the UK, Europe, the US and the rest of the world. In the vast majority of cases we have first-hand experience of actually having delivered meetings and events in a particular destination or venue. We always make it a priority to find out about new and refurbished venues and are always looking for something different when the brief warrants it.
We source accommodation with global, regional and national chain hotels when appropriate but we also relish the opportunity to find a unique independent hotel with characteristics that exactly fits the brief.
We have extensive knowledge of the healthcare sector and the strict regulatory and compliance requirements that apply to sourcing accommodation and venues across the UK, Europe, US and worldwide for meetings and events where healthcare professionals are in attendance.
When sourcing and recommending venues we always factor in the travel implications from a travel time, arrival time and travel cost perspective. Without this, extra nights’ accommodation may be required for a significant number of delegates. Unless explored properly, delegates may arrive for a business session having just endured a long journey or a number of delegates may need to leave before key sessions have concluded if they need to catch a return flight. Furthermore, an inaccessible destination may mean more connections, longer travel time and could easily lead to extra nights’ accommodation being required. Flight costs can vary considerably depending on a destination and venue and therefore we always consider these as part of a recommendation.
We work very closely with a travel partner that is IATA and ATOL registered with all the latest travel planning software and years of Group travel planning experience.
Skilful venue sourcing should result in delegates arriving in a positive frame of mind, well disposed to the content of the meeting – in other words many of the ingredients that are conducive to successful results.
