A party of six overseas meetings procurement professionals recently spent a day in Cambridge experiencing what the city and the region has to offer for exceptional events.
Venue-finding bureau Meet Cambridge co-hosted the delegation in conjunction with VisitBritain.
The party visited a number of venues from the Meet Cambridge portfolio, starting with the Hilton Cambridge City Centre, West Road Concert Hall and the Stephen Hawking Building at the Cavonius Centre at Gonville & Caius College.
Lunch and a tour of Homerton College were followed by a walking tour organised by Visit Cambridge & Beyond and a visit to Trinity Hall.
The day concluded with dinner at the Marco Pierre White restaurant at the Doubletree by Hilton.
The buyers were visiting as part of a UK-wide trip following IMEX Frankfurt.
Kelly Vickers, director of Meet Cambridge said: “We were delighted to co-host this delegation and proud to have the opportunity to showcase what Cambridge has to offer in terms of unique venues and creating exceptional experiences.”
