AGENCY TRAINING WORKSHOPS

NEW for 2017 are the Agency Training Workshops, created to help venues and agencies work better together.

There will be one 90-minute workshop per day of the show. Please note: attendance is ONLY available to venues and agencies who have pre-registered to attend, either as a visitor or as a hosted buyer.  

Agents: to qualify for attendance, we must see applications (either as a hosted buyer or as a visitor buyer) from 3 people or more in any single agency but you won't be required to attend on the same day. 

THE WORKSHOP

Venues and Agencies Working Together

Endlessly chasing provisional bookings with the agent without a response, not being given reasons for released bookings, not being able to sell your venue effectively to the client? This might sound familiar from a venue point of view.

No answer at venues or no one available to give you a quote for days, venue sales staff not being able to negotiate on price or added value without checking with management, complicated yielding strategies which are impossible to explain to the client? Probably a familiar story if you are an agent.
 
In this workshop, venue and agency staff will work together in mixed groups, looking at a range of pre-set enquiry scenarios and discussing the challenges faced by both parties. This will be followed by a panel discussion on the outcomes.
 
The aim of this workshop is for delegates to gain further insight, awareness and understanding of the other side and jointly improve the service to the end client.
