Visit Wales unveils marketing plans

Relaunched website and expanded venue guide feature as Wales goes on C&I offensive

Visit Wales has unveiled its latest marketing initiatives as it looks to gain a larger share of the UK's C&I market.

This includes an expanded and updated version of its Conference Planner guide for 2008-2010 and a revamped website.

The 44-page Conference Planner details venue options by region and also has special chapters dedicated to golfing and academic venues. A total of 138 venues feature in the planner and a total of 15,000 copies will be distributed to event organisers and marketing managers.

Meanwhile, the website has a number of new features including a quick search option and the ability to subscribe to regular e-newsletters. The total number of venues listed on the Visit Wales website is now 299.

Visit Wales head of events, sponsorship and business tourism Pat Crimp said: "Wales offers corporate clients a fantastic variety of venues and locations to hold an event whatever the theme - whatever the budget. In particular, with the credit crunch biting hard, Wales offers excellent value for money without having to make any sacrifices on quality."
