Save the date: 2016 Academic Venue Show Announced
Venuemasters, the consortium representing around 70 academic venues, announced that The Academic Venue Show will take place on Wednesday 11 May 2016 between 09:30 – 15:30 at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster, Central London.
The one-day event is the UK’s only exhibition dedicated to showcasing the meeting and accommodation facilities offered by academic institutions, giving visitors the opportunity to discuss their event needs with representatives from academic venues around the country.
The Royal Horticultural Halls mark a new venue for the annual event, offering a fantastic open plan exhibition space, central refreshment area, and a stunning glass vaulted ceiling providing plenty of natural daylight.
The new central London venue has excellent transport links, with Victoria, Pimlico and St James tube stations a short walk away, in addition to Victoria Train Station.
“We’re really looking forward to the Academic Venue Show 2016,” said Jo Mitchell, Marketing Manager at Venuemasters. “Over half of the stands have already been sold, with a fantastic range of venues from across the country exhibiting. The Horticultural Halls will provide a fabulous backdrop for the Show, giving visitors plenty of space to arrange meetings with venue representatives.”
A high-profile speaker will join up to 40 exhibitors, providing attendees with a source of inspiration for their upcoming events, while giving event organisers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to find out about the fantastic facilities available at academic venues.
The Academic Venue Show 2016 is free to attend for event organisers and registration will open in January 2016, so keep a look out for more information coming soon.
