Venues of Excellence set to make IMEX debut

INDEPENDENT venue consortium, Venues of Excellence, is set to make its inaugural appearance at IMEX 2019 in Frankfurt, in a bid to open up new opportunities for venues and buyers looking for representation in the UK.

The organisation, which awards accreditation to venues that meet stringent quality criteria, will be showcasing the benefits of a Venues of Excellence kitemark through real-life case studies and examples from across the consortium’s 48-strong portfolio.

Mandy Jennings, executive director at Venues of Excellence, said: “We’re excited to be heading to IMEX for the first time. Our UK portfolio has experienced rapid growth over the last two years, with more and more prestigious venues seeking Venues of Excellence accreditation as a way of putting a stamp on their commitment to high quality and service.

“We’re looking forward to meeting new venues and event professionals and buyers, interested in working with our consortium, at the expo, and to discussing our passion for raising the bar when it comes to standards within our industry.”

Joining Venues of Excellence on the stand will be Imago Venues (Holywell Park Conference Centre, Burleigh Court and the Elite Athlete Centre and Hotel) and Silverstone Circuits.
