Royal Armouries' Northern venue show renamed
12-Jan-10by Annie Byrne
The Big Wow and Northern Venue Show has changed names to emphasise an increased focus on business and conferencing. The show is renamed The Conference and Hospitality Show 2010 and the venue has passed over the organising to Event Management 360 and director Emma Cartmell. “We understand that these are challenging times economically and we wanted to bring a new focus to the show,” says Cartmell. The 2010 show will be held at the Royal Armouries’ Savile’s Hall, Leeds, on 18 March. The show has traditionally been the biggest event of its kind in the North of England and Cartmell is targeting a record number of visitors in 2010. Head of sponsors Conference Leeds, Nicky Lockwood, says the new show, “is about getting business done and making events the best they can be in these challenging times. Emma is putting together a great exhibition which will show why Yorkshire offers such great value for money and how our venues and suppliers will go that little bit further to make events special. It is a must-see event on conference organisers’ calendars”.
