Key M&IT Award win seals venue’s ‘value for money’ reputation

Warwick Conferences once again has cause for celebration after bringing home Gold in the Best Value for Money Conference venue category at the 2014 Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Awards.goldwinners1

This is the sixth year in a row the Coventry and Warwickshire-based venue has scooped the top accolade in the fiercely competitive Value for Money category, and the ninth time in the last decade.

Rachael Bartlett, Warwick’s head of sales and marketing, is understandably delighted. She comments:

Value for money is arguably the single most influential pressure facing the meetings and conference industry today, but as our own Value of Satisfaction report revealed last year, value is defined by so much more than a low day rate. Rather, it is determined by the quality of the delegate and booker experience, combined with a cost structure that’s transparent and appropriate.

To win this award once again is of course a thrill and an honour, but more importantly it’s an endorsement of our business, our people and of our tireless drive to delight our delegates and clients.”

The ceremony saw additional success for Warwick Conferences, with the team also collecting a silver award in each of the remaining three categories in which it was shortlisted: Best Academic Venue, Best UK Management Training Centre and Best UK Conference Centre.

The awards, which serve to reward excellence within the meetings and events industry, are voted for solely by event organisers and the readers of M&IT magazine. The ceremony was held on Tuesday 25 February at Battersea Evolution, London.
