Lime Venue Portfolio increases virtual offer

Lime Venue Portfolio is offering virtual tours of its venues that enable planners to interact with venue staff in real time, after launching Skype and Facetime tour options.

The portfolio, which represents venues across UK and Ireland, hopes the new online tours will lead to a rise in more qualified and informed second appointments. It has trained all its in-house venue managers how to conduct the tours and has produced a handbook guide for them to refer to.

Lime Venue Portfolio has also launched an online chat facility where planners can make fast enquiries, and has introduced a three-hour guaranteed turn around on all requests for proposals (RFPs).

Jo Austin, sales director with Lime Venue Portfolio, said: "We recognise that people’s time is really precious and neither venues or planners like wasteful venue visits, so a digital show round means both parties can get a real look at new venues and establish easily and efficiently if it will meet their requirements."
