London City Selection: Game of Venues
London City Selection (LCS) The City of London’s venue consortium has revealed the success of its 10th annual agency familiarisation weekend ‘Game of Venues’, which took place in February.
The collective hosted 21 corporate and event agents for a weekend of Game of Thrones themed activities and challenges whilst touring member venues. The weekend was described by Lauren Keen from Story Events/Venue Search London as “absolutely incredible” and a “great way to see so many venues.”
Eight weeks later, a quarter of members within the collection of modern, heritage and unique City venues have confirmed a high-level of enquiries worth tens of thousands of pounds.
Paul Martins from Cavendish Venues, an LCS Member commented: “The Game of Venues FAM weekend was fantastic; to date we’ve received 18 enquiries from 15 separate agents that attended. The annual event is a highlight for us each year, this year was particularly special as our very own Mariam Khan, Event Sales Executive, led one of the winning teams, aptly named ‘Venue Slayers’.”
The themed activities were provided by Right Angle Events, and saw teams go head to head to be crowned Lord of the Seven Kingdoms. The winning team, who took their seat on the Iron Throne, were ‘Queens of The North’ with team members from E2E Events and Venue Search London.
