Conference Cambridge celebrates record year

The official, free venue-finding service for the University of Cambridge has just announced record figures for its financial year 2008-2009.

The estimated value of events booked during the year with Conference Cambridge, including residential conferences, one-day training courses, corporate dinners and business meetings, has topped £4 million for the first time in the organisation’s 11-year history.

Enquiries over the year totalled 2484, with website traffic showing the greatest growth from 451 visits a month to 568.

Over the last 12 months, day meetings, dinners and residential conferences have been the top three most popular event types for clients making an enquiry to the service.

“We are delighted to announce these latest figures, which demonstrate that people very much want to hold events in Cambridge,” said Kelly Vickers, manager for Conference Cambridge.

“What we are finding is that people want more for their money and so our strengths in terms of flexibility and adding value ensure we continue to win the business.

“It’s also interesting that we have already taken a number of enquiries for very large events for 2010/2011 which seems to indicate that people are looking beyond the current challenging times to a brighter future.”

Conference Cambridge was established in 1998 and represents 36 venues, including 29 Cambridge colleges, as well as university sites, faculty buildings, Cambridge University Press and the Møller Centre. A total of 550 function rooms and 6,500 bedrooms are available.
