Destination is key for the educational and motivational business network, Entrepreneurs Circle, which has contracted five events with the ICC and the Vox.
The NEC Group owned venues in Birmingham have won the contract to host the annual convention and four additional conferences of the popular business network between December 2019 - October 2020, to celebrate its landmark 10th Anniversary.
With the first of the four contracted Advanced Masterclasses having taken place at the Vox on 16 December, each day will have a separate focus; marketing, LinkedIn, scale and money. Utilising the space of Vox 4 and 5, each conference setup will be a combination of cabaret, classroom and theatre style and host up to 200 delegates with live streaming of the event online.
Over 1500 delegates will also descend on the ICC for a three-day ‘Getting and Keeping Customers’ convention in March. In an environment filled with like-minded business owners and industry experts, practical advice will be offered on sales, marketing and customer retention. Headline speakers Peter Jones, Piers Morgan and David Walliams will be taking to the stage in Hall 1, plus speakers from John Lewis, Ogilvy Group, Innocent Smoothies and Trunki. This is set to be the UK’s leading entrepreneurial event of the year.
Cameron Botterill, Head of Marketing at Entrepreneurs Circle said: “We've been running world-class business events for entrepreneurs and small business owners for a decade now. With our celebrity speakers, industry experts, lack of sales pitches and practical content on how delegates can get and keep more customers - we know that our business events are the most useful and well-received in the UK.
“Having said that, we also know that the venue can make or break a delegate's experience. That's why we felt there was no other choice than the Vox and ICC for our events in 2020. With their central location, travel links and the five-star look and feel of both venues - there was no other choice for us. And judging by the feedback we've had already, our delegates approve too!”
Donna Cunningham, Sales Director for the ICC and Vox added: “This is a prime example of how our sister venues can be used collaboratively for varying event needs. The initial enquiry came into the Vox, but even though the convention element went above the venue’s maximum delegate number, the team did a fantastic job in scheduling it with the ICC, keeping the full event within the Group.
“Offering the ability to host from 2-3000 delegates, our prestigious venues and dedicated teams provide exceptional event experiences no matter what the format or complexity. It’s great to have Entrepreneurs Circle with us across this next year and hope to excel their expectations at every event.”
