Bournemouth will be promoted as a business destination at an international event in London.

The newly launched body Business Events Bournemouth will join with the BIC to showcase the resort at International Confex.
The exhibition takes place alongside the Event Production Show from February 18-19 at London Olympia.

Business Events Bournemouth aims to pull together the region’s venue, hotel and retail community to streamline the process of matching events and delegates to venues, hospitality and ‘after show experiences’.

Pat Coyne, director of venues for BH Live, the trust that runs the BIC, said: “With over 8,000 expected to attend, International Confex is the perfect platform to explain the region’s compelling new offer to organisers of events all shapes and sizes, with Bournemouth International Centre fulfilling the demand for high profile, large events.”

Business Events Bournemouth is a ‘hub’ providing a single point of contact for anyone planning or attending events in the town.

Mr Coyne said: “Business Events Bournemouth offers organisers impartial advice and a taste of what we have to offer through familiarisation and site visits, matching events and delegates to the most suitable venues and accommodation. It also provides access to a range of value added facilities to create memorable, informative and enjoyable delegate experiences.”

The hub’s portfolio consists of hundreds of venues throughout the area.

Mr Coyne added: “As economic growth and business confidence returns, we are seeing demands for flexible, customised conferencing in a world class centre, combined with hospitality, security and a diverse range of accommodation.

“Bournemouth is a very exciting place to be right now, with a massive and very visible investment in transport and civic infrastructure.

“We’re the fifth in the UK in jobs creation and our university graduates are among the most sought after in the country.

“We’re creating a unique business and coastal vibe unlike any other event destination and a major draw for delegates attending major association and corporate conferences and exhibitions.”
