TLC reports £1.5m worth of new booking enquiries
A Manchester-based event planning agency has reported an uplift in bookings for events in Q3 and Q4 2021.
Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC) reports it has seen over £1.5m worth of new enquiries and tenders, and many clients rebooking their postponed events. Additionally, since the lockdown roadmap announcement on 22 February the company has also reportedly seen a surge in large event enquiries for Q1 2022.
TLC CEO, Liz Taylor (pictured), said: "We saw green shoots emerging towards the end of 2020, with corporate clients and private bookers showing tentative interest in booking events for this year. The last two months has seen this convert to a real growth in enquires for business events in the autumn and private events from late August.
"We have seen a number of corporate companies looking to re-engage with their workforce in the autumn and seeing live events as the right tool to use. Many are citing the success of the vaccination programme, possibility of more rapid testing and a more measured Government approach to the lifting of lockdown as the reasons for their confidence.
"Clients who would normally have planned incentive events in Europe are keeping events in the UK or opting for hybrid events. In part due to uncertainty around foreign travel and allowing international delegates to safely attend, but also as a result of Brexit; with increased logistics and planning for events in EU countries comes increased costs."
