I invite you to attract & convert
THE RIGHT WEDDING BOOKINGS FOR YOUR VENUE,
increase your wedding sales & elevate your wedding offer.
Even if your marketing budget is seriously tight and your team small….
Behind the doors of this powerful live event, you’ll find the do-able strategies, connections and support you need to raise your venue’s profile and supercharge your success.
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut of doing the same old marketing and sales activities
ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE SPINNING MANY PLATES AND WEARING MANY HATS.
Stepping away from the desk and investing in fresh knowledge can be hard in more ways than one (leaving a busy venue office is never easy, I know). 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 when implemented, add tens of new beautiful weddings to the bottom line smoothly and easily.
And that makes me very happy.
So, after rave-reviews!
BACK FOR THE THIRD EDITION (AND ALREADY 60% BOOKED), IS THIS LIVE 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 event, you and only up to 40 other venue colleagues 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, conversion levels and overall wedding offer.
THIS EVENT IS CREATED ‘specifically & exclusively for venues, places and spaces’
the day is built 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 panel discussions and hot-seat interviews, informal networking aplenty alongside pre-bookable one on one slots with speakers so you can get tailored advice from those YOU really want to meet.
Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE is about equipping you with easy ’to do’s’
to convert more business in 2020
& is about inspiring you
on how to keep one eye on the future too.
Our target wedding customers and their needs are constantly changing and it's vital that we are one step ahead of the game and delivering to them what they want and how they want it!
Even if your booking levels are great right now, it's important to stay ahead in anticipating your customer's needs to keep them that way.
The content for Wedding Spaces Going Places constantly changes with each bi-annual 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.

About RSA House
GEORGIAN TOWNHOUSE IN CENTRAL LONDON
Central London’s RSA House plays host to this third edition of Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE.
Combining Georgian splendour and contemporary design, RSA House is a focal point for social change and enlightened thinking, whilst being at the forefront of numerous discoveries and inventions. A wonderful place to be inspired with fresh learning I’m sure you’ll agree. This is a timeless and elegant location, a highly successful London wedding venue led by a passionate team; I’m thrilled they are opening their doors to you, their fellow venue teams.
Due to the very central location of RSA House, we have not focussed on accommodation, assuming that many delegates will be able to arrive and depart same day or make individual arrangements. There is no accommodation on site at RSA but please email us should you require details on local options.
I KNOW that you have the most incredible venue
and a passionate, hard-working venue team,
yet sometimes you need a chance to appreciate just what your assets are, to take time out to review what you’re doing out of the heat of the office, freshen your ideas and talk to others doing exactly the same thing in other special places and spaces to achieve amazing results.
I’m privileged to see this transformation happening regularly on my programmes and I am thrilled to be sharing it here with you at Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE.
I’d be delighted to see you there!
