Cambridge’s official free venue-finding bureau for meetings and events has branched out to offer event management services as part of a new wider remit.
Meet Cambridge, which was officially launched last November, is providing event organisers with an off-the-shelf registration package with fixed fees, as well as a range of additional event management services.
Launched in response to client feedback, the service is being delivered through a new partnership with Suzy Howes & Associates, a professional event service provider and member of the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO).
Event planners can benefit from help process including: Pre-event Registration which provides a branded online portal system to handle online payments for conference registration fees, accommodation and meals, as well as processing requests for visa application letters, receipt issuance, confirmations and dietary requests.
There is also a Room Booking Service for organisers who may want delegates to book and pay for their own accommodation.
Judith Sloane, deputy manager at Meet Cambridge said: “We are delighted to announce this much-needed addition to our portfolio of services through a new partnership with Suzy Howes Associates.
“Clients often need help with organising a conference and don’t have the in-house resources to deliver the service in the professional way they wish. By offering a flexible range of services at competitive rates, we can meet this need. There’s also a special discount of 10% for staff at Cambridge University who are involved in organising conferences.”
