A party of six overseas meetings procurement professionals has just spent a day in Cambridge to see what the city and the region has to offer in terms of creating exceptional events.
Meet Cambridge, the official free venue-finding bureau for meetings and events in Cambridge and beyond, co-hosted the delegation in conjunction with VisitBritain.
The party visited a number of venues from the Meet Cambridge portfolio starting with the Hilton Cambridge City Centre, West Road Concert Hall and the Stephen Hawking Building at the Cavonius Centre at Gonville & Caius College.
Lunch and a tour of Homerton College were followed by a walking tour organised by Visit Cambridge & Beyond and a visit to Trinity Hall. The day concluded with dinner at the Marco Pierre White restaurant at the Doubletree by Hilton.
The buyers were visiting as part of a UK-wide trip following IMEX Frankfurt, one of the leading annual global events for the meetings and events industry.
Kelly Vickers, Director of Meet Cambridge said: We were delighted to co-host this delegation and proud to have the opportunity to showcase what Cambridge has to offer in terms of unique venues and creating exceptional experiences.
