I invite you to attract & convert
THE RIGHT WEDDING BOOKINGS FOR YOUR VENUE,
increase your wedding sales & elevate your wedding offer.
In a year absolutely like no other, it's more important than ever to focus your efforts, your team's priorities and your budgets in the right areas….
Behind the doors of this powerful live virtual event, you’ll find the do-able strategies, connections and support you need to raise your venue’s profile and continue your success, whatever the challenges.
Constantly managing all that 2020 has thrown your way It's not a surprise if you're fatigued and "all out of ideas"
Juggling postponed wedding couples & hosting Covid-secure micro weddings leaves little time for future sales and marketing planning ... but plan we must.
Stepping away from the inbox and investing in fresh knowledge can be hard in more ways than one. Yet, those who’ve invested in themselves and joined my training programmes always leave with an unparalleled bounce in their step, a renewed passion and focus as well as confidence in fresh strategies, that help add new beautiful weddings to the bottom line smoothly and easily.
And that makes me happy.
So, after a patient wait and postponement
BACK FOR THE THIRD EDITION (AND ALREADY 60% BOOKED), IS THIS LIVE virtual learning event just for YOU,
THE SUCCESSFUL AND BRILLIANTLY UNIQUE WEDDING VENUE,
TO SUPPORT YOU IN BOOSTING YOUR BOOKINGS & RISING TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
In this one day virtual event, you and only up to 50 other venues will benefit from a whole day of vibrant and practical sessions on the latest wedding venue marketing & sales conversion techniques that when applied will elevate your enquiries, help you convert more wedding bookings and improve your overall wedding offer.
THIS EVENT IS CREATED ‘specifically & exclusively for venues, places and spaces’
Even though we're not meeting in person this time, the day is being thoughtfully designed to allow for precious interaction and genuine conversation with other venue delegates who have a shared ambition to succeed along with a collaborative spirit of supporting others.
We’ll have lively Q&A discussions, hot-seat interviews, informal breakout networking and yes, we'll end the day with a virtual cocktail together!
Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE is about equipping you with easy ’to do’s’
to convert more business in 2021
& is about inspiring you
on how to keep one eye on the future too.
Our target wedding customers and their needs are constantly changing (never truer than in 2020) and it's vital that we are able to deliver to them what they want and how they want it! (at the moment within the framework of what we are allowed).
Even if your booked dates are high (I know that 2021 is booked out for many due to postponements), it's important to stay ahead in anticipating your customer's needs to keep bookings flowing for future years and to look for other ways of generating "lost" revenue.
The content for Wedding Spaces Going Places constantly changes with each edition to reflect the fast changing times and to ensure we deliver the most relevant and up to the minute content and expertise.
Here’s what happened
last time around...
We came away with so many new ideas and a renewed focus in terms of development and priorities. Hugely grateful for a really inspiring and well-researched day. Highly recommended.
Owner, Cley Windmill, Norfolk
I had never attended a training day quite like it and I only wish all courses were like this one. It was full of variety, interesting topics, and seamless organisation. I would love to attend another Kelly Chandler event/course in the future and would recommend her, her events, and her services wholeheartedly.
Weddings & Special Events Executive, The Bingham Riverhouse, London
The speaker line-up was absolutely brilliant - informative, inspiring and entertaining! All round 10/10!
Marketing & Events Manager, Somerley House
We left the event feeling inspired and excited after listening to Kelly and the other industry professionals share their ideas and business experience. We were over the moon that we got the chance to network with like-minded and creative venues across the UK.
