venuebirmingham - Going for Gold
14th Sep 2012
venuebirmingham has been shortlisted for an industry award, for the “Best Use of Budget”.
The accolade comes at a time when most businesses are having to make every penny count, and is further recognition that the marketing team at venuebirmingham has come-up with a value-for-money equation which will both raise the profile of Birmingham and bring more business into the city.
The award is one of several in the Meetings Industry Marketing Awards (MIMA) organised each year by Conference and Travel Publications (CAT).
The final results will be kept secret until the night of the presentation dinner on Monday, October 1st. Staged at The Brewery, in London, the glittering presentation evening will see gold, silver and bronze awards being presented to those who have proved to be the best-of-the-best in the UK’s conference, meetings and events industry during 2012.
Operating from the University of Birmingham campus in Edgbaston, venuebirmingham has enjoyed a summer of new facilities and high profile visitors.
It’s taken more than 100 years to complete the vision of a semi-circular, five-domed set of buildings at the heart of this historic University, but now that it is finally in place, the new, £18-million Bramall Music Building is the latest in a long list of world-class facilities being promoted by the marketing team.
Jamaica put all its trust in venuebirmingham to host its Olympics team during the summer – an occasion which culminated with ripple gold medal winner Usain Bolt leading the praise for the people of Birmingham for giving him and his team-mates such a warm welcome.
And now it’s the turn of venuebirmingham to go for gold.
“It’s been a very exciting year already, and we’re obviously all buzzing with the news that we’ve been short-listed for a MIMA award,” says Sales & Marketing Manager, Frances Mann. “Just to be a part of the awards night is another massive step towards where we want to take this organisation. It’s going to be quite a night!”
