Farnham Castle is already an established venue itself as an events facility within the conference and training market, with its 11 meeting rooms supported by 32 en-suite bedrooms. The venue, which can host up to 180 for a conference, has a blend of historic venues and modern facilities, and will partner with the sales, marketing and service initiatives found within Lime Venue Portfolio.
Ian Parkinson, operations director for conference channel at Farnham Castle, said: “Lime Venue Portfolio has great relationships with event organisers across the country and can help us drive further awareness of our great facilities and build relationships with new customers. It’s a great time to be joining the portfolio and we look forward to being in the company of so many other outstanding venues.”
Jo Austin, sales director of Lime Venue Portfolio, said: “This is becoming a record year for us in terms of acquisition of new venues. We’ve already seen the arrival of Aston Villa, Twycross Zoo and Edgbaston Priory Club, and with Farnham Castle, we’re offering our customers another excellent historic venue which is proven in this market.”
“Our growth makes us an increasingly attractive option for events professionals who demand choice. We’ve got some really exciting plans to open up our portfolio to new customers by showcasing how unusual venues deliver great events.”
