Cranfield Management Development Centre attends The Meetings Show

Date Posted:27/06/2016

Cranfield Management Development Centre (CMDC) attended The Meetings Show exhibition that took place at London Olympia from 14th- 16th June. CMDC was one of five stand partners that collectively exhibited as part of the newly rebranded Venues of Excellence group (previously Conference Centres of Excellence).

The first day of the exhibition saw the launch of Venues of Excellence (VE); with The Meetings Show providing a great platform to launch the rebrand, helping to attract interest towards the stand and promote the profile of Venues of Excellence.

To the accompaniment of champagne and canapés, Stuart Websdale, Chairman of Venues of Excellence, gave a short speech to introduce the new brand to the attendees of The Meetings Show; explaining that: “The Board has reviewed the positioning of the brand within the MICE sector and recognised that there are venues within the broader hospitality sector eager to endorse their venue with a badge of excellence synonymous with the Conference Centres of Excellence brand.”

The show welcomed close to 5,000 industry professionals over the three days, providing many prospects for networking; while the vast range of educational sessions allowed for key knowledge growth. Jay Browne, Business Development Manager at Venue Cranfield, said: “It was a privilege to take part in such a recognised exhibition for meeting professionals. We would like to thank Venues of Excellence for inviting us to exhibit in partnership with them, and giving us the opportunity to forge new links with other professionals in the industry and to engage with visitors at the Show.”
