Conference, Meetings and Business Events
Destination Bristol offer conference and business event organisers a range of services to encourage and support them to bring their events to Bristol, and so a complimentary set of services for businesses wanting to bring business events to their venue.
We operate a free venue finding service, plus a wide range of other services from delegate accommodation booking to special rail fares. Our aim is to offer a professional and efficient service, converting enquiries into proposals, often within 24 hours, as well as offering impartial advice to support those who may not know the city. This can be something as simple as arranging a series of site visits or help prepare a whole programme.
Within the UK, we will attend trade and industry events such as The Meetings Show and Square Meal, both of which take place in London, where we will meet conference organisers both informally and during pre-arranged appointments. Stand share opportunities are available at most domestic events. We also work closely with partners at VisitBritain to promote Bristol as a MICE destination internationally.
We produce an annual guide to venues in the area with comprehensive editorial supporting and explaining why Bristol is one of the UK’s leading MICE destinations.
There is a dedicated website for conference business - visitbristol.co.uk/conferences – which includes an enquiry form, plus opportunities to promote individual venues. This will continue to be developed to include case studies, video and other content.
To compliment this, we have monthly newsletters distributed by email to agents, association and business contacts featuring destination and venue news, together with our dedicated Twitter @confbristol.
We regularly supply information and content to industry publications both in print and online.
