Venuedirectory.com sees positive numbers following #Greenlightfriday campaign

Michael Begley, managing director of venuedirectory.com says: “There’s growing momentum in the events industry and we’ve seen a recent surge in enquiries. Last week (w.c 30 November) we saw a massive 52% increase in enquiry numbers. Although this growth is from a low base, we hope this is a clear sign of confidence.

“The event industry now has many reasons to be positive – the recent news of the vaccine has given our industry a ‘shot in the arm’ so to speak. Also, our recent #Greenlightfriday campaign (4 December) saw many event professionals share the message that now is the time to start planning with confidence for next year.

“We calling on the industry to maintain this continued confidence and plan ahead for a bright 2021.”
