Great opportunity for event professionals to meet and research 30 independent venues from across the UK in one focused evening and morning! You only need to attend this event once a year so you fill your little black book with some exceptional independent
I just want to thank you again for such a great event, venue, accommodation, food and company 😊 We had a great time networking with your team and with all the great independent venues. You achieved a good mix with a lot going on.
Further information from the venues is coming through on email now so we will be busy liaising with them with a view to continually working together and/or receiving new contracts.
Thank you so much and congratulations for putting on a fantastic CHS18. As a first time visitor, I was really impressed with the organisation, the VIP element to the show with the evening pre-party and treatment on the day and as always your friendliness and personalities always shine through, making it a pleasure to be involved and to attend such a fantastic event.
There were a great host of suppliers there, which were great to meet and interact with. Obviously, some existing supplier contacts for relationship strengthening is always good, but also a wide variety of new suppliers I hadn’t met or heard of before which was great. Incredible WELL DONE and hats off to you all! Thanks so much.
Coombe Abbey Hotel have worked with CHS for the past 3 years exhibiting at the Annual CHS show in Leeds and also taking part in the Independent Venue Roadshows and Showcase events throughout the UK. These events have given us the opportunity to present our venue and build relationships with numerous Conference organisers that we wouldn’t independently have been able to access. We are delighted to have recently converted an enquiry gained at one of these roadshows which is valued at approximately £50,000 – a wonderful return on investment!
Just wanted to say thank you for another great IVR. I found that the quality and mix of attendees was really good and as usual everything was very well organised.
I found the evening very useful indeed, learnt a lot about the venues involved in the roadshow and made some great contacts. The relaxed evening made it very easy to sit down and have a proper conversation with complementary businesses and left me with some thought provoking ideas and inspirations.
Having attended previous IVS events I was delighted to see the new format which enabled quality time with all exhibitors. A well balanced mix of venues were present to cater for all conference and event requirements. All in all a superbly organised and ran event maximising on the time available. I’ll be back!
