Hosted by National Museums Liverpool welcomes 30,000 business tourists

Hosted by National Museums Liverpool, an events initiative set up by National Museums Liverpool, welcomed more than 30,000 business tourists in the last 12 months.

‘Hosted by’ delivers corporate conferences, awards ceremonies, meetings and private dining experiences across eight museums and galleries. Its 30,000 figure is set to be exceeded in 2020.

Head of events at Hosted by National Museums Liverpool Katie Roberts (pictured right) said: “Our venues have become synonymous with the city of Liverpool, with the likes of Merseyside Maritime Museum, Museum of Liverpool and the Walker Art Gallery amongst the most well-known cultural venues in the region.

“On the back of this, our private hire and events department has also seen incredible growth, having hosted 386 events over the last 12 months, welcoming clients from as far as Australia and China. 

“Our unique events are expertly curated to allow our clients to dine, entertain and do business in among some of the city’s most stunning spaces, from spacious galleries to waterfront meeting rooms.”

The expansion comes after Liverpool was named the third best-rated destination in the UK in the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards.

Roberts added: “We hope to introduce new markets to our offering, with the aim to increase revenue for National Museums Liverpool and create further growth in the city region.

“It’s important to remember that all profits generated from our events go back into National Museums Liverpool, supporting public programmes and social initiatives, as well as the wider city region.”
