Types of Event
Corporate hospitality is the provision of hospitality and entertainment to the customers of companies, a reason for this is to form customer relationships and also to encourage business. Corporate hospitality can also help sales dramatically and also helps to form a good company image. For example at a Leeds united match they might invite food stall and vans outside to provide the Leeds supporters with food and also it will be a good placement for the food van because it will provide the stand with many customers. Sometimes these are free and it can be an example of corporate hospitality, also there are promotional events such as Cadbury's could offer out new products and so on.

Annual conferences may be held every single year by a single company, to discuss the annual statistics of the company to see where they can improve. They also try to solve issues what arise during the year for example there could have been a fall in sales and they must recognize reasons for this decline and how to stop declines in the future (to maximize profits). Medical conferences are often held and sponsored by drug manufactures to promote ideas, discussion and concepts. There are many different conferences held by businesses for many reason but they are all usually to improve business strategies and also to solve problems.

Events are held to either raise awareness for existing products or to introduce new products, these are held also to raise the company images. These events are mostly open to the public and include giving away free testers, free products or holding events such as concerts or free experiences. These events are aimed at the press and media because they want to raise awareness and publicize there product in order to boost sales and revenue.
Types of Conference
The most popular and famous are the party political conferences, held each ear but the political parties. The most popular venues for the main parties are Brighton, Blackpool, and Bournemouth. These are held at seaside towns because heavily rely on conference provide an important revenue stream which they carefully target. Political conference related to travel and tourism include those held by the world tourism organisation.
Many business meetings are usually held on the business premises, however there are specific building and though where business meetings can be held. These can be hired for business meeting so that they are in a calm uninterrupted environment to discuss policy issues and also to discuss manners. These rooms and conferences can also be held for meetings between the company and students, however if only a few people are included in the meeting they can meet in a lounge or an office. When a lot of people come together for a full meeting as an Annual General Meeting.
Types of Conference
Types of Exhibition
Trade fairs are events what provide an opportunity for many different industry members to meet up discuss business strategies and mainly conduct business. A famous example of a Trade Fair would be The World Travel Market which is held annually in London and is probably the most popular and wide know for is specific Travel related fair. Also throughout the year many things may have been introduced in to the sector so in this time they could discuss events throughout the year and also the latest industry developments.
Exhibitions have many different aims and objectives depending on the business sector however they are mainly held in order or promoting a service or product, increasing sales, and attracting new customers. There are promotional shows what are open to customers but some what are only open to industry members and staff, this could be to update technology in their business. An example of a promotional show would be the Travel Technology Show, this events includes over 100 suppliers what demonstrate what the years technology has to offer.
Venue Finding Agencies
Most major organizations will be involved with venue finding organizations, venues are important because if an organizations desire a prestigious venue this could suggest that the clients and business members attending will be upper class and set a good company image. They do not charge for there services because thy will get commission from the venue which can range significantly. They usually have a database where many credentials are used to determine the right venue for the organization/client this helps with customer satisfaction and suitability. Some Tourist Informational Centers offer venue finding services, they have excellent local knowledge and can advise on suitability.
Conferences should always be specialized the the members of the conference however the main parts and also more time consuming plans will be created by Conference Organizers. It would be too time consuming for the company to organize the whole conference. The services they include are; arranging technical audio/visual equipment, booking transport, booking hotels, organizing catering, making all bookings, offering choices of venues and much more. There organizers are crucial in Conferences to make them run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Exhibitors are these are the buyers of spaces and stands within the exhibition, these are the main source of income to the exhibition organizer however without these people the event could not take place (these people are also corporate). Secondly there are people who attend exhibitions through as a hobbies perhaps or just from interest for the industry, these usually pay an entrance fee. These customers could be corporate as in they represent there own business or they could be just individuals. Examples of Exhibitors could be; government organizations, Visit Britain, trade associations and much more.
Associations and Government
Government departments, authorities and agencies may be customers of conferences because they want to make sure that the idea put forward are legit and conference can be held to discuss matters on travel and tourism and other maters. Customers can be part of associations and they will often go to conferences to represent there associations and also to take some information back to there collegues. For example ABTA, the Travel Association, who want to create a conference or event for there members.
Links With the Travel and
Accommodation & Transport Provision
In some cases Conferences can be fully booked with transport and accommodation or they can be more independent where customers and exhibitors have to provide these factors themselves, in many ways like a package holiday. This can change the rates and the prices of conferences, however the more upper callas and corporate events usually have transport and hotels books for ease and efficiency of the event.
In some cases due the the sheer amount of conferences held in a particular location it can lead to popularization. As I spoke about earlier in my presentation, many seaside towns and other towns such as; Blackpool, Brighton and Bournemouth. These destinations have been partially popularized and have helped there travel and tourism market.
Popularity of Usual Venues
The most popular type of venues are hotels and other learning institutes and so on, for example premiere inn and Oxford halls. However more and more corporate organizers want to try stand out and send messages the there clients. For example there have been many usual venues what have held for example Alton towers have a conference section along with a hotel which has been a venue for many events and conferences. The event sets the tone and also gives out an image to the clients choosing this right venue is crucial.
Growth of Venue-Finding and Event management Companies
There are new ways that businesses are staring to expand and be created, social media and the internet enable for thousands of companies to become accessible which has caused in increase in the amount of venue finding event companies. There is a trend to use them because they are experts and can usually offer more a quality service rather than a inexperienced person planning the event and taking up there time.
Impact of Web-conferences, web seminars and e-meetings
Web-conferences web seminars and also e-meeting and accessible for all most all companies and clients, also they are versatile and is a brilliant way of communication with minimal effort and time needed. However if the meeting is large scale it can be not as effective as meeting in person.
Sponsorship can benefit events, because if a well known brand sponsors your event then it improves your events image and also helps to provide a budget for the event because events can be very costly. For example companies will only sponsor an event if they are suitable to sponsor, also if they are sponsored it is also the advertise a brand or company. A sponsor may have representatives and workers what ensure that there sponsor has been involved enough and has an effect (mainly making sure the brand has been advertised properly). Sponsors needs should be met and they should be a working relationship between the sponsors and event organizer.
