BCD Meetings & Events has been signed up by Tobacco Dock to manage its accommodation service, as the agency continues its three-year strategy to "significantly increase" the volume of its bookings.

BCD will streamline and manage accommodation for Tobacco Dock's guests and crew, offering preferred rates and full-room allocations.

It helps form part of BCD's three-year housing strategy, which has resulted in more than 100 exhibitions in the UK and overseas, as well as the signing of three venues, since it launched one year ago.

Anthony Coyle-Dowling, senior director for Housing, BCD Meetings & Events, said: "As a market leading accommodation provider, we are looking forward to playing a key part in the evolution of Tobacco Dock’s business by implementing a solution that will drive dividends for guests, event organisers and the Tobacco Dock team alike."

Jonathan Read, commercial director at Tobacco Dock, added: "As we continue to win larger multi-day events, we are responding to a demand from organisers to have readily available accommodation that can be used by delegates, visitors and the events crew alike. BCD M&E and Zibrant have an excellent reputation and the same outlook as our team; to innovate, to improve the customer journey, and to use data analytics and reporting to the benefit of future business planning."
