Are You Under Pressure To Find A Conference Venue?
Sounds Like You Need A Venue Finder…
Do you need to find a conference venue for 500 or a meeting room for 2?
Do you find yourself spending time out of your day answering questions about the event you have booked?
Ever wished you could just hand over all the work involved in finding a venue or organising a conference?
You need Focus Venue Finders!
We’ve been creating top-level events for over 21 years with clients from all industries.
My years working in the hospitality industry has given me an insight into the problems and challenges you face when booking a company event.
That’s why I started Focus Venue Finders. With over 21 years in the industry, we have booked just about every type of conference, meeting and event for our clients.
So Why Use Focus Venue Finders?
Added Value For Charity Client
We have been working with an international charity for over 10 years and are still continuing to provide massive time and cost savings for them. Sometimes it’s not the obvious reduction in DDR’s and 24 hour rates that always offer the value. For many years we have used the same hotel and the client didn’t want to move so we have this year achieved additional savings for the client by negotiating set up the day prior for no charge as well as upgraded breaks and complimentary overnight stays for trainers and organisers. The venue was happy because we have negotiated on a 3 year deal for them and the client, so everyone was happy.
Saved a client over £150,000
We were able to apply this experience when we were contacted by a health and safety training company to help them with their weekly training events. They were paying a number of hotel groups £35-£45 day delegate rate excluding VAT. Focus consolidated the number of hotel groups used and negotiated a rate of £25.00 day delegate rate inclusive of VAT this gave them between 44% – 57% saving per person!. Over 12 months this represented a saving of more than £150,000!
Quick..We need a venue in 4 weeks time!!
So the brief from the boss is that you have 4 weeks to find a great venue for 300 people, including bedrooms and free car parking and you don’t have any time to spend looking around dozens of potential options, trolling websites to find if they are suitable, if they have availability and if the price is right? Then do what Fujitsu did and call Focus! Within 48 hours of them being in touch with a brief we’d contacted over 30 different venues, sourced a perfect option which ticked all the boxes and negotiated one fabulous rate! Job done….and we made you look good!
Venue Finders That Are FREE…. Where’s The Catch?
How can you offer a free venue finding service?
Like all venue finding agencies, we get paid a commission by the venues we book.
This must increase the rates?
Not at all. We book a LOT of events every year and this gives us the buying power to get you the best rates.
Can I still be involved in the booking process?
Yes you can be involved as much as you wish we are working for you.
Can I visit the venues?
Absolutely, in fact, we actively encourage you to experience all the elements of the shortlisted/preferred places, especially the elements that are particular to your event such as food and an overnight experience. Focus will organise this for you complimentary and if required attend with you to ensure you get the best experience that the venue can offer.
Do you just book conferences and meetings?
No, we do everything involved in meetings and conferences. We have exclusive rates on audio visual, team building activities, incentive travel & corporate hospitality. We can also manage the event for you.
