Event booking agency Expotel has launched an initiative to help independent venues find business from the corporate and public sectors.
The agency has signed more than 100 privately-run properties to its ‘Expotel Collection’, and placed £486,000 of bookings at these venues since the launch early this year.
Properties in the collection include apartments, conference centres, golfing resorts, hotels, and sports venues in Bulgaria, Malta, Turkey, the Czech Republic, the USA and the UK.
Also in the collection of 3-5 star venues are several ‘green’ properties and unique venues such as Canterbury Cathedral Lodge.
Expotel commercial manager, Mark Bevan, says: “Independent properties deserve more of a market share, for their rapidly-increasing professionalism as much as their ‘appreciative’ work ethics, character and individualism.”
