Conferencing with Lime Venue Portfolio - An Interview with Paul Colston, Editor, Conference News
This month at Lime Venue Portfolio, we’re really focusing on the conference industry. We’re full of opinions and predictions about this dynamic sector, what it is doing, where it is going, and what a truly great conference looks like.
The Lime Venue Portfolio Charity Partner Program
Lime Venue Portfolio has a unique relationship with charities.
Many of the venues within our portfolio are themselves not for profit organisations, zoo’s, museums, country houses and visitor attractions that rely heavily on the meetings and events business they get to reinvest in their attractions.
It’s a relationship that goes both ways though, and Lime Venue Portfolio venues are also a major supplier to the many fund raising events that charities have every year for a whole host of different and worthy causes.
This relationship is incredibly important to us and a fundamental structure of our brand, therefore we wanted to create an offer for charities with the express purpose of encouraging them to have more fundraising events, and for them to better profit from them.
Venues who are part of the Lime Venue Portfolio Charity Program* will offer as a minimum:
- A 5% donation to YOUR charity (contracted spend)**
- Discounted Rates available exclusively to UK registered Charities
- A raffle prize to help you raise money;
- Two complimentary planning meetings for events over £10,000;***
- Assistance with your Accommodation needs
- Marketing of your event via our social media channels and website.
*As some of our venues are registered charities themselves, they are not able to offer donations to other charities and as such are excluded from the minimum requirements of the LVP Charity Program. However, they are able to offer discounted rates for other charities.
**Not applicable when booked through third party booking agencies.
***Event planning meetings applicable to events over £10,000 – Boardroom meeting for 10 people with teas and coffees and room hire. Subject to your chosen venues capacities and availability.

We Give Back in more ways than one: Social Value
As well as supporting Charities through the Lime Venue Portfolio Charity Program, a great number of our venues also deliver social value to their communities. Some, such as Bristol Zoo and Somerset House are registered charities in their own right, whilst others including Twickenham Stadium and Harlequins RFC deliver considerable investment into grass roots rugby.
Our football stadiums are heavily involved with their local communities, whilst our museum venues such as Imperial War Museum North and the Museum of Science and Industry provide great educational value to the nation as a whole. A large percentage of the money generated through the hosting of your conferences and events goes directly into helping them stay open and grow.

The charity, Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), hold an annual Spring Seminar at Yarnfield Park.

The event is held over 3 days and numbers peaked at 280 including day delegates on the middle day.
Staff could not have been more helpful and it is crucial for our event to be able to accommodate everyone comfortably on site. They were most accommodating regarding accessibility issues and worked hard on the feedback we gave them in relation to the seminar. We will be coming again."
