My name is Alex and I am the Venue Finding Manager here at The Conference People. I work with and manage four lovely ladies and it is our responsibility to track down the perfect venue for your event.
No two days are ever the same in our office, we can be working on an enquiry for 1500 delegates in the Caribbean one minute and a top level board meeting for 8 the next. We even found the perfect location for Justin Timberlake to launch his latest album recently...never a dull moment!
I have been at TCP for almost six years now and prior to this I worked in hotels for around 14 years. I have no intentions of giving my age away though...you can guess, but please bear in mind I started my first hotel position when I was six!
One of my big passions in life is hotels, and I am very fortunate as I get to inspect them on a regular basis. One of the most recent properties I had the pleasure of staying at was The Forbury in Reading (www.theforburyhotel.co.uk), believe me, this place is incredible. 24 deliciously decadent bedrooms, a sexy cocktail bar and restaurant, and even a private cinema. Ideal for board level events, The Forbury is destined to be one of the best boutique hotels in the country...trust me, I'm an agent!
I will keep you posted on the hotels to watch in the UK and overseas, new openings, refurbishments etc. I spend my life tracking them down and if its there, I will find it!
Thats all folks, take care for now
