A team from the UK is flying the flag for the city of Cambridge as an ideal location for conferences and events. Conference Cambridge headed to the U.S. for the first time in its 15-year history to exhibit at IMEX America 2013, a meetings exhibition that ends Oct. 17 in Las Vegas, in a bid to further enhance the global reputation of Cambridge as a key player in the meetings industry.
The official, free venue-finding service for the University and its colleges, as well as a number of unique venues in and around Cambridge, will be promoting its portfolio of venues, both historic and contemporary.
“We are delighted to be attending IMEX America to fly the flag for Cambridge and to showcase our range of venues and facilities for meetings,” said Kelly Vickers, manager, Conference Cambridge. “Cambridge can deliver a truly unique event experience, and with the recent additions to our portfolio, we now offer a wider choice of venues suitable for events of all types.
Recent figures show that academic venues in particular are bucking the trend in terms of popularity for events. Not only do they offer a unique experience for delegates, but they also provide a conducive environment for learning.
“The City has an international reputation not only for its University but also its groundbreaking scientific and medical research, both in the past and today. Located only one hour by rail from London, and with the announcement of new routes and opportunities to connect via Europe and fly into Cambridge International Airport, we are ideally situated for international delegates attending an event here,” added Vickers.
During IMEX America, Conference Cambridge will be inviting delegates to enter into a prize draw with a chance to win a limited edition Brit Bag designed and manufactured by the award-winning Cambridge Satchel Company. Another available prize is a two-night two-center break for two guests encompassing both the historic city of Cambridge and the birthplace of horseracing, Newmarket.
