Plan your day at the Show

We are always looking for ways to develop the Show and this year is no exception. In addition to moving to a stunning new location at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster, we've also introduced a new timetable for the day, which includes new opening times and can be seen below:

Show programme

0930 - 0930

Show opens: Doors open for the 2016 Academic Venue Show where there will be 40 venues eager to meet and greet you with a warm welcome. All visitors to the Show will receive a voucher for a complimentary hot drink - if you're one of the first 50 visitors you'll also receive a Strawberry Tartlet.

 
1200 - 1300

Lunch time: During the lunch time period there will be a range of refreshments available to purchase including salad boxes, sandwiches and drinks. There will also be ample seating available for you to take a short break from meeting the exhibitors.

 
1300 - 1400

Be inspired by Sharron Davies MBE: Hear from and meet this Olympic medallist and TV personality who will inspire you by sharing some insights from her varied career on how 'winning combinations' in sport and business can help you achieve success with your events.

 
1430 - 1530

Hospitality Hour: For the final hour of the Show celebrate the business you will have done at this great event by enjoying our hospitality and continue to meet and speak with exhibitors in a more relaxed and informal atmosphere over a complimentary glass of wine and nibbles.

 
1500 - 1500

Prize draw winners will be announced: During the Show you will have the opportunity to take advantage of the special offers and prize draws available on the exhibitors' stands. Any winners will be announced at 15:00, so make sure you stay around to hear if you're one of the lucky ones.

 
1530 - 1530

Show closes: The 2016 Show will close and we hope that you will have found the winning combination of venues for your next events. However, if you do still need a venue, don't forget the Venuemasters team are available throughout the year to help with your requirements.
