Save money and save time when booking your venues

GCN have teamed up with established event management company Event Source to provide a new service for commercial event organisers.

Through our Conference Venue Awards and our other various events we have good relations with many of the top venues, and we are in a position to get you better rates than you would get if you contact them directly.

Furthermore you can have someone else do the hard work of drawing up a shortlist and checking the availability of suitable venues. The service is absolutely free of charge because any commissions due are paid by the venue and will not be deducted from the amount you pay.

The service is headed up by Andy Jeffery. If you wish to find out more then please contact him by completing the form below:
