Nottingham Conferences commits to Olympic Games pricing policy




A central England venue group has signed up to the 2012 UK Event Industry Fair Pricing and Practice Charter, designed to create a level playing field for event organisers and visitors during the Olympics to avoid the price-hiking that has blighted past Games.

Nottingham Conferences, which represents the entire conference and events portfolio of The University of Nottingham, is the first academic venue in the whole of the UK organisation to sign the charter.
 
The moves reveals the potential impact of the Games beyond London. Highlighting the impact that the 2012 Olympic Games will bring to Nottingham and the East Midlands, Kirstie Danzey marketing manager of Nottingham Conferences, said: “Although inevitably, most of the focus will be on London during 2012, it is important that Nottingham and the East Midlands, and all other UK destinations press themselves to become a part of the Olympic Games, aligning themselves with what is going on and help to make it a UK legacy rather than just London.
 
“When the Games are taking place, there will be an influx of people looking for destinations to hold their conferences and events away from the hustle and bustle of London,” she continued.

“This provides the perfect opportunity to showcase Nottingham and the East Midlands as an attractive destination and gain our share of the £1.5 billion the Games are expected to bring to the business tourism industry.”
 
Signatories to the voluntary code of practice, created by the London Development Group undertake that their pricing for the period around the 2012 Olympic Games, be both fair and reasonable and that they will not artificially inflate prices for goods or services. In turn, charter members will be promoted to organisers seeking venues and suppliers via Visit Britain’s network of overseas offices.
