Why ‘Old is Gold’ in Event Sales

Seeing is believing! A good, old-fashioned site visit still has the wow-factor for me 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.
