HOW TO USE THE “CREDIT CRUNCH” TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

Everyday we read or hear reports about the global economic downturn and how the UK and other leading economies are in the middle of a severe “Credit Crunch”. These are obviously very worrying times for some people, however there is some good news if you are continuing to host events, business functions and meetings.

How can Red Dragon Events help you benefit from this?

More than ever venues need to retain as much exisiting business as possible whilst continuing to attract new business. Here are a number of ways in which this can be used to your advantage:

1 – Special Offers – we have access to special offers at numerous venues across the UK and internationally. Some venues are offering up to 25% of their published rates and some of the larger groups are offering 1 in 5 or 1 in 10 delegates attend Free of Charge;

2 – Added Value – Venues are offering Added Value to their Day Delegate Rates, for example, including bacon rolls on arrival, mineral water with lunch, Audio Visual equipment, upgraded accommodation for the organisers;

3 – Increased flexibility – venues are less likely to demand minimum numbers for certain function rooms in an effort to win your business;

4 РLoyalty Rewards Рa number of venues operate reward schemes for confirming events with them, with some excellent rewards Рfree overnight accommodation, iPads, etc

This is just a snap shot of what the industry is offering to event planners.
