Midlands conference bureau Meet Oxfordshire has invited conference and event organisers from across the UK to a second session of its Destination Showcases this summer.
After a successful Garden Party at Rhodes House in 2013, the seasonal theme will continue this year with a Summer Showcase at the Saïd Business School in the heart of Oxford on 13 August.
Twenty venues and service providers will showcase the diverse of Oxford and Oxfordshire as a destination for business visits and events.
Oxford Malmaison, Bicester Village, Four Pillars Hotels, The Old Swan and Minster Mill, Blenheim Palace, The Macdonald Randolph and Heythrop Park Resort are some of the exhibitors committed to attend.
Two industry related workshops will run during the exhibition; ‘Networking skills’ hosted by First Class Learning & Development (recently announced as the new training provider to the Meetings Industry Association) and ‘Using social media for successful events’ with Graham Todd from digital marketing and training provider, Jo’s Correctional Facility.
De Vere Venues Heythrop Park Resort and their teambuilding provider Off Limits Events will be holding interactive team building activities during the exhibition to showcase new ideas for event organisers.
Meet Oxfordshire will be using this year’s Summer Showcase to launch several new themed incentive itineraries.
Jo Butler, Head of Marketing and Development at Experience Oxfordshire, said: “We are thrilled to be bringing back our Summer Showcase to demonstrate the huge potential of our county as a choice destination for meetings and events. Business tourism is extremely beneficial to the local visitor economy and by working together with our partners we can demonstrate the many offerings that Oxford and Oxfordshire provides to conference and event organisers”.
