Experience Oxfordshire Announce Venues Rebrand to Attract More Business Visits and Events to Oxfordshire

Jan 22 2020

The official venue finding service at Experience Oxfordshire, formerly known as Experience Oxfordshire Conferencing, has rebranded as Experience Oxfordshire Venues.


The new name acknowledges the increased remit of the service, as part of Experience Oxfordshire’s ambition to promote the region to business and events visitors as well as the traditional conferencing market. Modern business meetings and venue enquiries now encompass a more diverse range of events than in previous years, including one-day meetings, seminars, residential conferences, corporate dinners, award ceremonies and weddings, and Experience Oxfordshire is adapting its service to contemporary needs.


The Experience Oxfordshire Venues Service is the official and free event venue-finding service for Oxford and Oxfordshire. The service is a single point of contact for regional, national and international event organisers and individuals, providing bureau services and introductions that deliver exceptional experiences within the unique venues in Oxford and Oxfordshire.


Over the past year Experience Oxfordshire have for the first time attended major international events aimed at attracting this type of business, including MeetGB and IMEX America alongside national agency VisitEngland, and took on board valuable feedback from experienced buyers on how best to attract this broad and lucrative businesses and moving to ‘venues’ was the natural progression of our current work.


Experience Oxfordshire’s venues team will match any brief to one or more venues in the historic heart of academic Oxford or the surrounding countryside, completely free of charge.


Commenting on the new identity , Hayley Beer-Gamage, Chief Executive of Experience Oxfordshire, said:

“As we are now promoting a broader range of venues suited to a variety of event enquiries, we wanted a brand that recognised the wider range of services now offered by Experience Oxfordshire Venues. We have increased our work in this area over the past year which has resulted in increased event enquiries and securing new bookings in destination. To build on this going forward we will continue to work closely with our venue partners and will also be seeking additional investment from local stakeholders to further grow and develop the service and Oxfordshire’s market share. This is a high value area of business that will help with economic growth and help build a more productive and year-round visitor economy, as highlighted in our ambition statement”.


The launch of the new identity includes a rebranding of Experience Oxfordshire’s Conferencing and Meetings website – a platform which allows bookers to search hundreds of event spaces according to room capacity, location, and event type or style, as well as discovering Oxfordshire’s best suppliers of catering, entertainments and transport solutions for events large and small.
