Whether you have a massive conference centre, a unique venue, sporting arena or specialist venue, marketing and selling your event space using the latest know how is key. You cannot assume you will remain successful simply by doing the same things that have worked for you in the past, especially in the face of clients who expect more and more from venues.

Our specialist training courses cover the full range of skills for the event venue professionals. From using the very latest digital, data and social media techniques to market your venue to our very popular Maximise Venue Sales we have programmes to support the development of all members of your team and increase bookings.

We also offer event venues, consultancy and mentoring, special project work and bespoke masterclasses to ensure your event venue has maximum occupancy and sales.  Contact us if you would like more information on a tailored package for your teams.

I recently arranged some in-house training with The Media House which was excellent. If you are looking for some specific sponsorship sales training then I can’t recommend their course highly enough; very valuable for both seasoned and fresh BDMs (all my guys raved about it).

Thanks for a great training session. It was extremely useful, and gave me a lot of insight. I used a few tips from yesterday’s session in my meeting this morning and will hopefully have some positive news from the client next week.
