Marketing consortium hits target a year early

National consortium Venues of Excellence has surpassed its 2020 growth target 12 months ahead of schedule.

The organisation has hit its 2020 target of having 50 accredited venues under its name, a year ahead of schedule.

The latest wave of venues to join the consortium include Phyllis Court in Henley-on-Thames (pictured), Rothamsted Manor in Hertfordshire, Gloucester Rugby Club and the Elite Athlete Centre, operated by Imago Venues at the University of Loughborough.

Mandy Jennings, executive director at Venues of Excellence, said she was thrilled to reach the target ahead of time, adding: “The last 12 months have seen our membership figures increase rapidly, to include a more diverse mix of venues across the UK.

“We are now proud to have awarded accreditation to 52 venues, from Scotland to the South of England, representing more than 4,000 bedrooms and 1,000 meeting rooms in total.”

David Vaughton, chairman of Venues of Excellence since 2017, added: “It’s wonderful to see that so many venues across the country are keen to get involved with our organisation and, through our accreditation, make a commitment to quality, too.”
