Best Outdoor Space and Best Marketing Campaign Winners

Nottingham Conferences is delighted to announce they have  won Best Outdoor Space category for the second year running and Best Marketing Campaign at the Conference News Academic Venue Awards 2018, which took place on Tuesday  27th November at the University of Birmingham.


Best Outdoor Space Award

Building on over £5 million investment into its glorious landscaped grounds and outdoor spaces, Nottingham Conferences hosted a diverse range of over 70 unique outdoor events over the past year including national sports tournaments and championships, as well as Weddings and the University of Nottingham’s Summer Graduation Garden Party. 


Best Marketing Campaign Award

Within Nottingham Conferences' marketing strategy, a well-researched, thought-provoking and on point creative marketing campaign to ‘Keep it On Campus’ resulted in increased reinvestment back into the University through retention of the University pound.

Andrew May, General Manager of Nottingham Conferences, comments: 

"To have won the Best Outdoor Space category for the second year running is a sheer delight and a real testament not only to the University’s investment into our outdoor spaces but also to the efforts of the wider support teams in delivering an exceptional service for our clients.

We are absolutely thrilled to have won Best Marketing Campaign for our ‘Keep it on Campus’ campaign. With delegates attending academic conferences and events from a national, European and international stage, the ‘Keep It On Campus’ campaign has given us a wonderful opportunity to showcase the University’s incredible conferencing offering and facilities to a much wider academic audience driving inbound business tourism to the area and economic benefits to the University and City itself.

The Conference News Academic Venue Awards are designed to celebrate the ‘best of the best’ through 13 carefully selected categories, as well as bringing together representatives from the UK’s top academic venues with event buyers to network, share best practice, highlight progress and celebrate success.
