Following their “Fast Lane to Excellence” Annual Conference in January 2023 at the Silverstone Circuit, Venues of Excellence, the UK’s leading consortium for independent venues, has welcomed two exciting new venues into the family in February 2023.

The multi-award winning IXL Events Centre, partners of No Ordinary Hospitality Management (NOHM) are based in Southam, Warwickshire.

Atul Lakhani, CEO commented: “It’s a pleasure and privilege to work with Venues of Excellence and our hope is that this partnership will help us to elevate IXL Events Centre and all we have to offer. We’re excited to welcome more delegates through the door and share our unique surroundings with them. At IXL, we are confident we can deliver the outstanding quality and customer service that Venues of Excellence want to provide to their clients.”.

We also heard from NOHM’s Group Operations Director, Ron Terry, who said: “IXL is a valued venue in our No Ordinary portfolio and we’re proud to have been central to their journey in becoming a Venue of Excellence. Drawing on our membership, we’re excited to work with new clients who want to experience all IXL has to offer”.

In the Northwest we are delighted to welcome the MTC Events Centre in Liverpool, sister venue to the MTC Events Centre in Ansty, Coventry who has been in membership for over 4 years. This venue is based in the Liverpool Knowledge Quarter and its central location offers unique opportunities for businesses and individuals within the region. Comprising of a large exhibition space and meeting room, their event spaces combine the MTC’s reputation for world-leading manufacturing with the highest quality meeting facilities, providing flexible spaces for events with up to 60 attendees. The in-house MTC Events team offers a full-service event management solution, including AV support, catering, and accommodation through partner hotels.

Mandy Jennings, CEO at Venues of Excellence, commented on the growth of the consortium saying: “We are delighted to welcome two new venues to our consortium family and the new additions prove what a  great range of venues we have as member venues.  One offers large conference and event space in the Midlands, which is one of our key booking locations, whilst MTC Liverpool offers a state-of-the-art meeting and networking space in the city centre of Liverpool. Both venues offer the golden thread of excellence in product and service we look for in all of our venues.

The Venues of Excellence 2023 Annual Conference was a great showcase for several prospect members to attend and find out more about the consortium and hear first-hand from our current members.  From this we have already seen a positive increase in venues looking to join the consortium and to benefit from the skill and expertise of the Venues of Excellence team and network. Venues of Excellence continues to be recognised as a strong influencer within the independent venue sector”.
