Calder Conferences, Conference Care, Venue Options and CT&E were all invited to join Lime Venue Portfolio for an exclusive hospitality experience at Wimbledon, and a meeting with Albert Roux OBE, in recognition of their participation in the portfolio’s ‘Agency of the Year’ campaign.
The Agency of the Year campaign is designed to continue providing informative experiences to teams that work with Lime Venue Portfolio venues, and at the same time offer agencies incentives to grow their own businesses through the brand. The winners were selected in four fields, including enquiry level, confirmed business, future business and attendance at Lime Venue Portfolio’s calendar of educational events. Last year, the campaign saw members of the team at Grass Roots receive a culinary tour of Chicago, the home of Levy Restaurants UK – the brand which Lime Venue Portfolio is part of.
“Our Agency of the Year competition has become really popular and is a great way for us to support our clients’ businesses, through education and growth, whilst rewarding them for supporting ours,” commented Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio. “We’re really grateful for our partnerships with all our agency customers, and especially delighted to welcome many of them at Wimbledon.”
The Lime Venue Portfolio team showcased The Gatsby Club as one of the best examples of the company’s ability to deliver amazing food, the best hospitality and unique experiences. Guests took their place on the day of the women’s quarter finals of the internationally renowned tournament, as they enjoyed the super styled dining experience. Albert Roux OBE designed the three course, a la carte menu, plus wines that accompanied the live action taking place on court, and was on hand to meet the winning teams during the meal.
“Education and familiarisation have been key factors in the growth of LVP over the past few years, and this trend has increased in 2017 with more clients looking for different experiences and real value for money; making every event count,” continues Jo.
“We believe that by giving our customers the chance to experience events, such as The Gatsby Club at Wimbledon, we have the perfect opportunity to show off our expertise in both event management and culinary flair. It’s a way of reminding them that our venues are well worth considering when recommending event space to their clients.”
