32% leap in enquiries – it’s academic

Venuemasters, the consortium representing over 80 UK academic venues, reports a 32 per cent increase in enquiries for the period April-December 2008, compared with the same period in 2007.

The consortium will reveal its new development plans for 2009 at International Confex, at London’s Earls Court, 24-26 February, but claims its members offer “a great value option to event organisers in the current climate”, with an average day delegate rate of £33 with a group B&B rate of £33.50.

A new annual Venuemasters magazine, In Any Event, will also be launched at Confex.

Chief executive Terry Billingham says his team has improved the organisation’s venue search process to include clearer details about venue availability.
