Exceptional venues

Venues of Excellence is the leading collection of exceptional venues delivering excellence in conferences, training and events.

We are a membership organisation that represents specialist venues at the top end of the meetings sector, providing excellent quality events, in a dedicated environment, at all-inclusive rates.

Our members, which include many of the country’s best-known venues, cover a geographical area extending from the South East of England to Scotland.

Working with our members, who are mostly independent providers, we support the concept that specialist venues are the optimum solution for conferences, training and events, offering completely focused support and a distraction-free environment.

Before joining and throughout their membership, venues have to meet stringent quality criteria in terms of facilities, accommodation and customer care. The ongoing quality assurance is administered independently, ensuring customers have a guarantee of the highest quality standards when choosing Venues of Excellence.
