Lime Venue Portfolio’s inaugural showcase event ‘The Unusual Made Easy’ has been recognised by Conference and Incentive Travel magazine with a prestigious Excellence Award at the publication’s annual awards, held at the Natural History Museum last Thursday 27th September.

Staged at the Old Royal Naval College’s Painted Hall in March 2012, the event drew together 36 venues across the UK including treasure houses, sporting venues and the nation’s major racecourses, as well as LVP’s preferred suppliers of events services, to an audience of more than 150 corporate meetings and events buyers and agencies.

Judges referred to ‘The Unusual Made Easy Showcase’ event as a very clever initiative with a cunning use of budget and very pleasing results. They also applauded the event for the savvy use of partners and contra deal arrangements.

Jo Austin, head of sales at Lime Venue Portfolio, said: “We wanted to create a unique brand showcase which truly reflected the essence of LVP and the diversity and capabilities of our venues by producing and delivering a memorable event at a unique surrounding. The award is a fantastic accolade for LVP’s team who worked tirelessly to deliver a unique event to the highest standards.”

Richard Kadri-Langford, head of marketing, commented: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the suppliers without whom we wouldn’t have been able to host such a memorable event: MCL-AV, Sternberg Clarke, Well Dressed Tables, Bash Bars, Karen Woolven Floral Design, Tavistock Photography, The Dream Catchers videography, Thames Clippers and Tablet-Rentals.”
