Flying the flag for Business Tourism in Exeter

Event Exeter at the University of Exeter are flying high this spring as they celebrate being named finalists in the national Conference Awards.

The announcement follows a string of recent successes for the event management specialists, having already been recognised as finalists in the Exeter Living Awards and Academic Venue Awards so far this year.

Best Conference Venue
Taking place in London in July, the prestigious Conference Awards represent the pinnacle of achievement for professionals in the event industry. Finalists in the Best Conference Venue (over 1250 Theatre Style) category, Event Exeter is placed amongst a number of national high profile, purpose-built conference venues, including ICC Belfast, ICC Birmingham and the Midland’s Ricoh Arena.

Spotlight on the South West
Event Exeter is the only venue from the South West to have been shortlisted, once again bringing the spotlight to Exeter - a city already flourishing having been recognised as one of the fastest growing economies in the UK and now sitting 12 th in the city UK competitiveness index. Exeter proudly plays host to a range of tech-based businesses, with the University of Exeter having recently been announced as a collaborator in the multi-million pound Institute of Technology, which is set to revolutionise digital, engineering and manufacturing technology education across the South West. This announcement will firmly cement Exeter as a key destination for tech-based business events. The shortlisting also comes at a time when business tourism in the region goes from strength to strength. According to Visit Britain, between January and September 2018, the South West welcomed 270,000 overseas visitors for business purposes, spending a total of £95.9 million.

Exceptional event facilities
In 2018-19, the Event Exeter team managed over 900 events on campus at the Russell Group University of Exeter, which is currently ranked by The Times and the Sunday Times as 14th in the UK.

As well as a conference, exhibition and concert hall, the University’s Great Hall has established a reputation locally as the best awards venue in Exeter. It is the current home to the Taste of the West Awards and the Exeter Living Awards.
