London & Partners, the official promotional organisation for London, has launched a brand new convention bureau website that provides a one-stop-shop for event planners. The website offers improved venue listing services, an all-new search and shortlisting tool, as well as ‘Visualise’ 360 degree panoramas. Created using feedback and suggestions from the events industry, the new site aims to provide an efficient and easy-to-use service for event planners around the world.
To bring the unique spaces of the British capital to life, London & Partners’ experienced and knowledgeable convention bureau team give their individual recommendations and insider tips on the best parts of the city in a short video to mark the website's launch. They talk about their favourite event venues and why they love London.
Tracy Halliwell, Director of Major Events & Business Tourism for London & Partners, says: “We’re extremely proud of our all-new convention bureau website. Right from the start it was built and designed with the customer in mind. We talked to event planners and to our clients and asked them what they wanted the site to do for them – how it could make their job easier.
“Our new website does just that – from making it simpler to search for and find venues, to bringing to life the city for people who’ve never been here or haven’t visited for a while. We hope that event planners find the website a valuable new tool, and one which vividly conveys to people all over the world what an amazing place London is to visit and do business in.”
The new website helps event planners:
• Search for, map and shortlist potential London venues, hotels, restaurants and services
• Find inspiration for different events, from incentive programmes, to corporate events, to congresses
• View 360 degree panoramas of some of London's best venues
• Meet the individuals that make up the convention bureau team
