Well Met Conferencing brings the GANG together
2 March 2016 - Well Met Conferencing
Well Met Conferencing hosted this year’s annual Great Ambassador Networking Group (GANG) event yesterday (Wednesday 10th February 2016) at the Rose Bowl.Set up in 2009 by members of the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), GANG was created to bring industry experts from across the UK and Ireland together to discuss best practice in working with local ambassadors when bidding for conferences.
Following a successful bid by ConferenceLeeds, Well Met welcomed 50 delegates to the conference for a day of speakers, workshops and networking, including a talk by Steve Lewis from CAT Publications.
Well Met Conferencing gave an update on their ambassador programme, as well as Marketing Manchester and Marketing Sheffield, followed by a Q&A panel session giving delegates the chance to discuss key issues and share valuable knowledge.
Kate Davis, Head of Business Development for Campus and Residential Services at Leeds Beckett University comments:
“It is a huge testament to Leeds that the city was selected to host this year’s annual GANG conference and we were delighted to welcome the delegates to the Rose Bowl. Ambassador programmes are vital to generating conference business; our ambassador programme here at the University continues to grow as we work with more and more colleagues and staff to facilitate their conferences. The event was a fantastic opportunity to hear how other cities are developing their ambassador programmes and provided a platform to discuss how they can be improved.”
