After The Meetings Show, earlier in the year, the synergy between the two organisations has led to a formal 3-year partnership to provide Venues of Excellence with key exhibition support, combined with a range of other products and services which Leopold Marketing can promote to the members.

On signing the contract with Venues of Excellence, Leo Platt, Managing Director at Leopold Marketing said: “Leopold Marketing is thrilled to be joining the Venues of Excellence preferred partner programme.
