Following an extensive brand review, from this October Conference Cambridge is changing its name to Meet Cambridge. The free venue-finding service for event space at the University of Cambridge, the Colleges and other unique venues in the city is key to the local business event industry.
The rebrand acknowledges the broader remit, which includes a new partnership with Visit Cambridge and Beyond, and the variety of event enquiries which now encompass one-day meetings, week-long residential association conferences, weddings and family celebrations, corporate dinners, team-building sessions and award ceremonies.
Meet Cambridge is to be a single point of contact for regional, national and international event organisers, providing bureau services that deliver exceptional experiences within the University of Cambridge, the Colleges and unique venues in the city and beyond.
Kelly Vickers, director of Meet Cambridge said: “As we are no longer just a venue-finding service, the Board of Directors and the team wanted a new brand to acknowledge the wider range of services now offered and the variety of event enquiries we receive.
“Working with Visit Cambridge and Beyond to promote the city and the region to business visitors, demonstrates a real commitment from our stakeholders, the Colleges and our other academic venues, to work in partnership to attract even more business events to the area.
“Meet Cambridge will provide a single point of contact for anyone looking to host an event in Cambridge and to deliver a rewarding membership for venues in the region. Our portfolio of venues will now be extended to include non-academic venues across the city and beyond.”
