The Thames Valley is set to experience a boom in meetings and events over the next few years, according to a recent survey of event agencies and corporate buyers.
Private destination marketing organisation Exclusively Thames Valley (ETV) has added new features to its web portal to make it easier, it says, for UK and international meetings buyers to access the best of a region that has Heathrow on its doorstep.
ETV revealed that 61% of its survey respondents predict an increase in the number of events held in the UK in the coming years. Thanks to the rebrand, visitors to the exclusivelythamesvalley.co.uk site can now access enhanced search facilities, more in-depth profiles of venues and suppliers, as well as use of the free concierge-style booking service.
“With unrivalled transport access, great venues and facilities plus the great British countryside, Thames Valley has it all,” says website founder Maxine MacPherson. “We wanted to ensure that this wonderful part of the country was front and centre for today’s busy event planners, so we’ve invested in adding a host of new features to bring our members to corporate and agency buyers.”
ETV claims to be the only on-line resource bringing the best of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey to the corporate and agency market.
