Event production and services company PSL is launching its Venue Partnership Scheme, which provides "conference centres":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/conference_center_venues.asp, hotels and "meeting venues":http://www.venues.org.uk/searches/meetings_and_events_venues.asp with privileged access at competitive rates to PSL’s creative skills, technical expertise and equipment.
The company claims the scheme gives its partners access to a ‘Virtual AV Department’, stocked with the latest technology and experienced staff that are familiar with the venue’s facilities. Some venues have already joined up, include The Brewery, Kensington Roof Gardens, 45 Millbank and Brocket Hall.
“Two factors make this scheme unique,” said PSL sales director Darren Glossop. “We believe we are the only presentation services supplier to offer creative expertise and equipment in one complete service. And we are able to give our partner venues an unrivalled degree of choice in terms of technical solutions.”
Central to the Venue Partnership scheme is a new streamlined ratecard, which makes it easier for venues to prepare technical services quotations for events. All prices are shown inclusive of delivery and collection, at daily and weekly rates. The ratecard gives access to all the contents of PSL’s 70,000 square foot warehouse, which houses the latest audio-visual and presentation technology, from high-definition video projectors and LED lighting to every size of plasma screen.
Partner venues will also be able to call on PSL’s production department to inject more creativity into their events. Providing a wide range of fully integrated production services, from room renderings to set design to a full event branding package, the PSL team can help venues maximise their own earning potential.
“Being part of this scheme can make a venue look good!” said Glossop. “Venue managers can pitch confidently for bigger and better projects, knowing that they’ve got access to the equipment and the expertise to carry them off. PSL will provide free extras to our partners such as CAD and artist visualisations of events, which will make it easier for "venues":www.venues.org.uk to sell their own space. And the preferential charges on the new ratecard enable venues to improve on their own profit margins.”
