Great news! One Great George Street has now become a finalist in the category ‘Best Conference Venue – up to 300 delegates’ for the 2016 Conference Awards!
The Conference Awards is the flagship event of The Global Conference Network (GCN) which was established to provide quality information and events for the global conference industry. The GCN aims to facilitate dialogue and strategic thinking amongst the world’s conference companies through a variety of different forums and channels. Through events, education and industry wide projects the GCN look to facilitate best practice within the conference industry and provide an industry wide voice to external organisations including educational institutions, suppliers and government bodies.
For ten years Invest in ME (Research) has been organising international biomedical research conferences in Westminster, London. The conferences now attract delegates (researchers, clinicians, media, patient groups, patients, carers, politicians) in a unique event that is friendly and conducive for learning and networking.
Here at One Great George Street (OGGS) we try and make each client experience as unique and personal as possible. Once we had the Paramount Pictures events team come in for an evening and we were racking our brains as to where to host them and how to differentiate from the norm – we had just been informed of our brand spanking new HD projector in the Telford Theatre and that was it…a light bulb moment and we went from there.
I was recently interviewed by Evolve Events regarding my role as Events Manager at One Great George Street. From what my typical day looks like to Hans the German pelvis thruster…it’s all in a day’s work at OGGS!
Seeing is believing! A good, old-fashioned site visit still has the wow-factor for me at OGGS!
Old will always be gold in event sales as while it’s important we move with the times by getting tech savvy, nothing beats face-to-face and one-to-one communication. How else can you develop a strong, trusting and positive relationship with that new client, and maintain one with a loyal customer?
People still buy people, and I find it refreshing to go back to basics. One of my favourite recurring moments is a guest’s reaction as they step into our Great Hall and can’t help but look up in awe at its exquisitely painted ceiling.
My own reaction was captured recently for an impromptu wedding photoshoot as pictured.
