Merry Christmas from all at Venues


Dec 16, 2014 | Blog

With Christmas just a few short days away, the team at Venues wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a prosperous New Year.

So that we can celebrate the season with our friends and family, the office will be closed from the 24th December through to the 2nd January. We will be checking emails on the 30th December so if there is anything urgent please do let us know.

We are all very excited for what 2015 may bring. The number of events held in the UK has steadily increased over the last couple of years and the expectations within the industry are that this will continue throughout 2015. The IPA Bellwether report, covering the third quarter of 2014, revealed a rise of 7.8% in event budgets and MPI’s latest Meetings Outlook report predicted 3.6% growth of meetings and events business in 2015.

With that in mind we are confident that now is the time to make some developments and invest in future growth. We have a number of changes planned for the look and feel of the Venues website, with the aim of enhancing user experience. Venues is the longest established and largest UK venue finder, providing event organisers with a quick and simple method of finding and contacting venues all over the UK. We plan to continue that tradition in style!

We will keep you informed of the changes as they happen and would welcome any feedback once in place.

We hope that you too have exciting plans for the coming year and we would love to hear about them. If you would like to let others in the industry know what’s happening in your company – new appointments, special offers, interesting events etc. - we can help by publicising the details on our news pages and including on our monthly newsletter. We will also post your news on our social media channels to our 10,000 followers. To get in touch with us please email editor@venues.org.uk.

Have a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!
