Opening new doors in Cambridge

ODV Blog June 2021 Opening new doors in Cambridge

The official venue-finding service for Cambridge and the surrounding area is expanding its support for clients and venues, with a specialist service focussing on delivering hybrid and virtual events.

Meet Cambridge is teaming up with Opening Doors & Venues Limited (OD&V) to offer event organisers a comprehensive service to manage meetings and conferences which incorporate in-person or virtual attendance.

OD&V, based in the West Midlands, has a first-class track record as a professional conference organiser, including digital events, and celebrates its 21st birthday this year.

With the status of many international events uncertain and likely to remain so for a while, companies are taking the decision to adopt either a hybrid model where local delegates can attend and others further afield can participate virtually or a fully virtual meeting.

The new partnership complements Meet Cambridge’s existing event management service, provided through an agreement with Suzy Howes & associates limited (SHA).

Judith Sloane, Head of Meet Cambridge said: “We have listened to both client and venue feedback and are delighted to be able to offer not only these new services from our collaboration with OD&V, but also enhance the existing expertise we have with SHA. This means we can now provide support for in-person, hybrid and virtual events or indeed any combination.

“Switching to a different format can be daunting for both organisers and venues and being able to tap into OD&V’s significant experience will ensure the event is delivered in a highly professional way. This includes using specialist software platforms to provide elements such as networking and e-poster exhibitions.

“We are delighted that over the next few weeks, Rose Padmore and the team at OD&V will celebrate its 21st birthday with a hybrid event for our venues in Cambridge to mark the occasion.”

Rose Padmore, OD&V Founder, added: “Having collaborated with the Meet Cambridge team over the last seven years, we are thrilled to now be partnering in an official capacity. Conversations are already taking place around us dovetailing our services with SHA to deliver a virtual conference in Spring 2022, and we are very much looking forward to working together”.
