National Trust Convestival 2013
Agency Cascade Productions
Venue Calke Abbey, Derbyshire
Cascade Productions was given the task of designing and producing an event for 137 National Trust volunteer managers from across the UK on a limited budget. To help keep costs down the part-conference, partfestival event was held at Calke Abbey, a National Trust venue in Derbyshire, meaning the money could be spent on other things.
The venue's 354m2 riding school was transformed into a conference environment - a huge step for the National Trust, which had never done anything like it before. Cascade was able to secure reduced rates from hotels and suppliers and waived its own management fees, providing the associated website, printwork and video recording all free of charge.
The two-day event delivered crucial messages on how to approach volunteer management through a variety of creative workshops and plenary sessions. Delegates were surveyed before and after the event, and the results demonstrated that understanding after the conference had improved by 28%, showing clear ROI.
