The official conference and events bureau for Cambridge, which is funded and managed by the Cambridge Colleges, was recently handpicked to participate in a prestigious international summit, connecting with business meeting buyers from around the world.
Meet Cambridge was chosen to take part in MeetGB Virtual 2022 alongside other UK destinations, with the chance to meet virtually with buyers from the USA, Canada, India, Indonesia, Europe and the UK.
Organised by VisitBritain, the showcase was held over two days with time zones to accommodate an international audience.
Judith Sloane, Head of Meet Cambridge said: “All the buyers we met – a combination of professional conference organisers, association management companies, independent agents and incentive buyers – showed an enthusiastic interest in bringing events to Cambridge over the next few years.
“It was clear that everyone we spoke to was ready to get back to face-to-face meetings and were keen to know more about the unique venues we have on offer here. With our wide portfolio of the Cambridge Colleges and other historical and contemporary spaces, we were able to discuss suitable settings for groups ranging in size from 12 to 600.
“Our team was proud to showcase what Cambridge has to offer, not only in terms of facilities for meetings and conferences but also a memorable experience for delegates and unrivalled opportunities to key into clusters of world-class excellence.”
