Venue group EEF Venues is predicting another robust trading year ahead.

The group - behind Broadway House in Westminster, Engineers’ House in Bristol and Woodland Grange in Leamington Spa – already has advance orders this year 25 per cent ahead of the corresponding point in 2017. And it is budgeting 4.5 per cent growth for 2018, with the aspiration to break £7 million turnover across the group this year.

David Vaughton, managing director of EEF Venues, said: “Despite all of the uncertainty created by Brexit, the demand is there and companies are simply getting on with business.

“Enquiries and bookings are up right across our three venues, showing the confidence organisations have and their willingness to invest in their people. The growing emphasis on staff wellbeing and on the human element of business is translating into more investment in face-to-face meetings and opportunities for people to come together for training events and conferencing.”

Over the last 12 months, EEF Venues has strengthened its portfolio of high profile corporate clients. Turnover for 2017 shows 7 per cent growth, which Vaughton attributes to EEF Venues’ style of engagement.

He said: “We take an open and enthusiast approach to entering relationships with prospective clients and then proactively cultivate those relationships.

“Consistent quality standards have and always will be key to our sustained growth. While each of our three venues has a unique identity, all share a common ethos of customer care excellence and that is what continues to drive this business.”
