Agent Extravaganza provides perfect showcase

Our Experience. Your Success.©

After our hugely successful Agent’s Extravaganza events which took place over the last few weeks, Heather Ethridge – conference and events account director at Interstate Europe Hotels & Resorts – takes a look back at their success.

It’s often difficult to get a feel for a venue without visiting it and experiencing its surroundings for yourself. That’s why our two Agent Extravaganza events have worked so well. They gave over 80 booking agents from across the country the chance to immerse themselves in our venues and to experience the sites as if they were the client.

This year, we were showcasing two very different properties - The Crowne Plaza in Leeds and The View Hotel in Eastbourne - giving the agents, accompanied by their partners and friends, the chance to see the host venues for themselves.

Importantly, they also had the opportunity to learn about all the hotels within our portfolio at a special exhibition. The diversity in our meeting and event venues means we are able to highlight both our city and seaside offerings and demonstrate our portfolio’s ability to cater for any occasion. With more than 300 meeting rooms and 8000 bedrooms to offer across the portfolio, each venue’s team is experienced in creating meetings and events with the wow factor.

At the events, we were able to demonstrate our capabilities and how we can provide what the market needs now and what is trending for the future. All our properties from right across the UK were showcased, giving attendees the chance to find out about each venue and to meet the teams behind them.
