More sign up to London Olympics Fair Price Charter

The Lime Venue Portfolio and Twickenham Experience are the latest events organisations to add their names to the 2012 UK Events Industry Fair Pricing & Practice Charter created by tourism bodies Visit London and VisitBritain.

Following criticisms over cost that previous host cities have faced, those that have signed up to the voluntary charter agree to abide by a "fair price" policy during the Olympics.

“The Olympics represent a fantastic opportunity for the events industry and for the UK as a whole,” said Chris Morris, managing director of Twickenham Experience.

“As a sporting venue, we understand the importance of aligning ourselves with the charter and to be part of creating a positive Olympic legacy.”

Meanwhile, Louise Amphlett, head of Lime Venue Portfolio, commented: “The arrival of the Olympic Games to London presents a huge opportunity for the whole of the UK events industry.

“It is not just our venues in London that have committed to the charter, but also those from all across the country have also signed up, recognising that they can be a part of creating a lasting legacy for the country.”

Commenting on the new sign-ups, Tracey Halliwell, director of business tourism for Visit London, said: “We are delighted to have Lime Venue Portfolio and Twickenham Experience signed up to the charter. With more than 160 companies already on board, we are aware that this is a key document to showcase to incoming businesses that London and the UK is both fair and outstanding in its events offer."
