Cambridge attracts prestigious events
Meet Cambridge, the official conference and events bureau for Cambridge and the surrounding area, has announced a series of major international and national conference wins that will bring about 3,200 delegates to Cambridge over the next two years.
The meetings, which span medical, scientific and electronics, are run by professional associations that rotate the location for their events, often following a competitive bidding process to select suitable destinations.
“Cambridge offers associations a number of unique benefits, including the opportunity to tap into the local expertise in the expert communities at our universities and the knowledge clusters at our science and technology parks, Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the new Biomedical Campus,” said Judith Sloane, head of Meet Cambridge. “This, together with our portfolio of inspirational venues – academic, unique spaces and hotels in the city, as well as the incredible breadth of activities and attractions on offer to visitors – makes Cambridge a very attractive destination for associations.”
Meet Cambridge has an established Ambassador Programme, which helps those who would like to champion the city to their association as a destination for their events. This includes free support to collate a competitive bid, material resources and practical help, as well as in-depth local knowledge.
