Academic venues join forces for agency familiarisation weekend

Saturday, October 31, 2015 -
unnamed (3)A group of event organisers from meetings and travel management company Inntel have spent two days experiencing the best the Midlands has to offer during a motorsport-themed familiarisation trip organised by two leading academic venues.

imago, the conference and events arm of Loughborough University, and Warwick Conferences, the conference facilities at the University of Warwick, welcomed a group of 10 staff members from the UK’s largest independent meetings and travel management company for the ‘Do You Have the Need for Speed’ themed trip, which took place on 9-10 October.

Helen Lowrie, Senior Business Development Manager at imago, and Justine Meek, Client Relationship Manager at Warwick Conferences, organised the trip, which was not only aimed at showcasing the award-winning facilities on offer at both AIM Gold accredited sites, but to highlight a number of on and off-site events delegates can enjoy when booking events.

Participants took part in a series of motor-racing themed activities, including Scalextrix races and a Soapbox Challenge and Race at Warwick Conferences, and a Batak and Formula 1 Race Simulator challenge at imago. Scores from each activity during the trip were collated with the winners announced during a private dinner and awards presentation on Sunday 10 October.
