Why become a member?
Marketing & PR
You can reach thousands of potential clients through our website, client database, email marketing and social marketing campaigns. Our focussed PR strategy positions Venues of Excellence as an expert and raises the profile of our member venues in the most influential media outlets.
Our highly experienced team of venue finding consultants work closely with the key conference placement agencies gaining in-depth knowledge of their client base helping to generate leads for our members. We also offer avenue finding service which drives sales directly to our members.
Our members get access to a range of dedicated training courses from our Learning and Development Academy, in partnership with Paje Consulting. Led by our industry experts across a variety of disciplines, you will learn and share experiences with peers from other member venues.
Keeping you connected, we can put you in touch with other member venues when you are reviewing suppliers to potentially make huge savings. We also carefully select businesses for our preferred partner programme. These suppliers share our passion for quality and provide preferential offerings for our members.
We regularly attend and host exhibitions throughout the year providing amazing publicity to the group of venues we represent. Venues are invited to share stands with us, which as an individual venue may be cost prohibitive. We also hold sector-specific events to raise awareness of the consortium members.
We host an exciting calendar of meetings, workshops and forums that are an opportunity to share news, celebrate success and learn from industry experts. We also encourage networking and a culture of openness amongst our members for sharing of experiences to benefit the consortium as a whole.
