Virtual Venue Visit London to launch at industry bash

Visit London has teamed up with C&IT and sister title Event to launch a virtual venue tour website aimed at events organisers who are interested in bringing events and meetings to the capital.

VirtualVenueVisitLondon.com is an interactive website that gives event buyers a chance to have a virtual tour of an events space. Each venue featured on the site includes a short video with key elements of their building, venue configurations and contact details plus interviews with venue personnel.

The website will be officially launched at an event for over 400 events industry clients and suppliers on the evening of the 1 July 2010 at Middle Temple and catering to be provided by Beyond Food.

Visit London head of Events Solutions and UK Sales said: "Visit London is looking forward to helping to launch VirtualVenueVisitLondon.com on the 1 July. This is a fantastic virtual tool which will help save time and money, but it's also a lot greener in terms of the amount of travel. We look forward to welcoming the industry to Middle Temple and celebrating this new innovative tool. "

Yasmin Arrigo, editor of C&IT added: "as the countdown to 2012 begins in earnest, event planners across the globe will be looking for the very best event solutions in London and VirtualVenueVisitLondon.com provides the perfect platform to showcase the very best the capital has to offer."

To register, please RSVP to lindsey.hawkins@haymarket.com by Wednesday 23 June. Places are limited to two people per company and subject to availability.
