Venuemasters, a marketing consortium of academic venues, has announced the Royal Society as its newest member. The society, which is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence, will promote its 12 event spaces through Venuemasters.
“We are truly delighted to be working with the Royal Society”, said Natalie Williamson, interim general manager at Venuemasters. “Our comprehensive digital marketing reach, which spans the web, social media, email, press and live events, enables Venuemasters to connect hundreds of event organisers with high quality venues each year.”
Chartered by King Charles II in 1660, the Royal Society has hosted some of the most important events in the scientific world. Located in Central London with views over St James’ Park, its 12 event spaces are equipped to provide the setting for unforgettable occasions. With modern equipment and capacity for events from 10 to 800 people, the venue is suitable for conferences, board meetings, training events, seminars, lectures, receptions and dinners.
Barbara Wutte, head of conference services at the Royal Society said: “Having received the first interesting enquiry immediately after we joined, we are delighted to be working with Venuemasters. The Royal Society is the national academy of science in the UK and the Commonwealth and its fundamental purpose is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science, encouraging its development and use for the benefit of humanity. The Royal Society has played a part in some of the most significant and life-changing discoveries in scientific history. By being a member of Venuemasters, we are not only promoting excellence in science but also promoting a superb and beautiful venue with an academic background and unique history. We are also excited to be promoting the venue at the Academic Venue Showcase in October for the first time.”
