The North of England’s leading conference and event venue sourcing company, Hospitality Guaranteed, has launched a new online service, Conference Stop, a website service which provides a free UK conference venue finder.
Working with a range of hotels, conference centres and other venue partners, Conference Stop provides a unique resource for those looking for a venue for a wide range of events including training sessions, product launches and conferences. The easy to use system allows the user to search online by interactive map, region and unique requirements from free parking to proximity to motorways. The system is backed up by Hospitality Guaranteed’s team of conference experts, who can give you independent advice and help save you time and money by negotiating added value.
The new conference management system allows venues and hotels to create and manage their own profile online, including photos, conference facilities and full venue details. The venues and hotels can also add special offers and the latest news for the users of Conference Stop to view through the website. Conference Stop provides an enhanced service to Hospitality Guaranteed’s venue and hotel partners, which include a wide range of UK venues from small independent venues to large hotel chains who can join the service for free and showcase their conference facilities to potential clients.
Users of the service have an easy, convenient way to search for venues that match their requirements. The system uses the portfolio information provided by each venue partner to create a list of suitable venues to meet their specific requirements. The online service is accessible 24/7, allowing users to log in and view their event information, making changes with instant communication and tracking. Users can even collect loyalty points with Conference Stop while using the service, as this information is all stored in their individual profile.
Hospitality Guaranteed was established in 2006 by Victoria Brunton and Amanda Jackson following 20 years combined experience in the hospitality industry, to help companies across the UK save money and find the best venues and accommodation. Six years later and with an extensive client base including major contracts with large organisations, they took the decision to develop their current system to include a dedicated online conference venue finder and conference management system.
Commenting on the development of Conference Stop, Victoria Brunton explains “To further develop the service we offer to clients, we developed this system, which is smooth and efficient and is flexible enough to be bespoke for each client. The Conference Stop management information and tracking system is a great tool for both our clients and partner venues. It gives 24 hour access and visibility of the event details, giving client’s confidence that their specific requirements are stored every step of the way to ensure their event is a success.”
Amanda Jackson adds “We currently have 1,000 UK venues registered on the system and aim to increase this to 2000 by 2013. We are currently in the process of employing someone who will be dedicated to increasing sales and partner venues for Conference Stop. We have ambitious plans to continue to grow the business and aim to double the size of our team in the next 3 years. We are also in the progress of finalising our plans for the next phase of developing our system – ‘Accommodation Stop’. So watch this space!”
