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 budgets are seriously tight….
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.
Are you finding that you’re working very hard to convert those coveted bookings for your wedding venue?
Do you feel like you’re doing EVERYTHING but not enough couples are listening, responding, taking action to book their show round or are being oh-so-SLOW to make that booking decision? Is 2020 not looking to be quite as positive as all the talk out there?
Perhaps you’re beginning to lose focus in your efforts and are dipping toes
into the latest shiny strategy that comes your way
in a bid to boost your wedding bookings?
All the while your confidence is being ebbed away,
you may be starting to doubt your product
you’re in need of a boost of positivity, strategy and support.
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut of doing the same old marketing and sales activities
especially when you've worked non-stop through the summer peak wedding season.
Stepping away from the desk and doing something different 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, have gone for it and joined my training programmes always leave with an unparalleled bounce in their step, a renewed passion and determination 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 and back for a second time, is a LIVE learning event just for YOU,
the experienced successful wedding venue,
to support you in boosting your bookings & rising to the next level.
In this one day event, you and only up to 60 other venue colleagues will benefit from a whole day of bright, punchy sessions (from the best in the business) on the latest wedding venue marketing & sales conversion techniques that when applied will elevate your enquiries, conversion levels and overall wedding offer.
This is more than ‘just another conference’
the day is built to allow for precious collaboration, interaction and time to hear from venues, entrepreneurs and event professionals
who have made mistakes, learnt A LOT and want to
share THEIR experiences with you so you can get there faster.
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 NOW
& is about inspiring you
on how to future-proof your offerings 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.
Here’s what they had to say about Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE
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
WSGP was a great day. I learnt loads as well as meeting some fabulous people. Thank you for organising such a professional, well planned, and inspiring day. I'm looking forward to more days like yesterday in the future.

About Caswell House
Manor House in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds
The beautiful Caswell House and its lovingly restored medieval Cotswold barns play host to this second edition of Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE along with boutique hospitality caterer, Indulgence. A highly successful and experienced venue led by a dream team of forward-thinking, ambitious and thoroughly delightful wedding industry professionals, I’m thrilled to be able to partner with them and I’m sure you will enjoy learning in such an inspiring wedding location. Situated a few miles from Oxford and with quick access from the M40, I hope it’ll be easy for venues countrywide (and overseas) to join us as for previous similar events.
There are a small number of bedrooms on-site at Caswell House for the night of 11th November and a variety of other accommodation options within very easy reach. Please email us here for full details.

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!
