EDGE Venues has celebrated a successful first year with its Business Intelligence Review for 125 agent and venue industry professionals, which was hosted at the Barbican on 17 January.
The Review provided insight into the business, which specifically looked back on the financial and operational developments of 2019.
The event revealed a preview of EDGE Venue’s 2020 goals, which includes the launch of its RFP tool and enhancements to the digital marketing arm of EDGE Venues. It will also host key events such as the Marketing Summit and the EDGE Venue Summer Party.
A panel session saw industry experts discuss their own experiences with industry changes, challenges and successes.
The event was also an opportunity to announce the promotion of Tracy Winsworth to managing director of EDGE Venues.
Jacqui Kavanagh, CEO of Trinity EDGE Holdings, comments “We are delighted with the outcome of our first Annual EDGE Business Intelligence Review which was held exclusively for our licensees, providing an in-depth analysis of our industry which is rarely shared so openly.
“It included consideration of a turbulent time during which several key players haven’t survived, some of which can be attributed to the industry’s lack of adaptation to digital developments. EDGE Venues commits to supporting licensees with this high level of information to help them prepare for the challenges our world and industries are experiencing.”
Kavanagh added that EDGE Venues will “continue to share expertise, and key industry trends and predictions with our licensees to ensure they have all-round knowledge and skills to develop traction and grow their business in 2020.”
