Bondholder partnership boost

Bondholder Roundhouse Events has launched a new initiative to network with other events companies in the area to boost communication and referrals.

Meeting with a series of events companies once a month, with the aim of ensuring that event bookings are retained in Derby, the group has been co-created by Helen Vann, Sales Manager at Bondholder Pentahotel and Amy Wicks, Conference and Events Manager at Roundhouse Events.

Amy said "The aim of the group is to ensure Derby venues work together in collaboration to service the needs of companies and individuals looking to hire quality event space.

“There are many fantastic venues in Derby and we want to ensure that we service the needs of businesses and the community by offering suitable, quality space to host their event."

Helen added "It's a great way to get to know the people behind other Derby venues and hotels. It will enable all of us to work together, share best practise and, as a result, will enhance the offering across Derby as a city".

The group is made up of representatives from Bondholders Derby Conference Centre, Derbyshire County Cricket Club, Derby City Council, QUAD, Deda, Jurys Inn, Derby County Football Club, Derby Museums and the University of Derby, along with Visit Derby, Hallmark Hotel, Riverside Centre and the Cathedral Quarter Hotel.
