Conference Cambridge hosted a VIP weekend for some of the UK’s leading agents, 9-10 May.
The bureau focussed the programme on what Cambridge and Newmarket have to offer for conferences and events.
The showcase was organised in conjunction with Trident Hospitality and 10 agents and partners, as well as Juliet Price, Executive Director of the HBAA trade association for the hotel booking and venue community, attended.
Guests arrived to an afternoon tea at the Jockey Club Rooms, enjoyed accommodation at The Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket and Madingley Hall, visited Downing College for a mini-Expo of 15 venues, participated in a ‘Live The City’ treasure hunt which gave the opportunity to explore Cambridge, took traditional Afternoon Tea at Hotel Felix and concluded the day with dinner in the Old Library at Girton College.
Kelly Vickers, Manager of Conference Cambridge, said: “The weekend was brilliant; we were privileged to be joined by so many agents, with a genuine interest in Cambridge and Newmarket.
“Our venues pulled out all the stops to offer a completely exclusive event, from the BBQ at the Bedford Lodge Hotel and a visit to Luca Cumani’s yard and the opportunity to see the horses on morning exercise on the gallops, to the venue networking opportunity at Downing College and a closing sumptuous dinner at Girton College. We certainly did our best to put Cambridge and Newmarket on the map.”
