Following the rebranding of Destination Bristol’s conference team to Meet Bristol, a new membership category has been launched to enable the team to provide a one-stop-shop for event planners. The membership is open to local suppliers who can add value to meetings and events.
Brightelm, a Bristol-based professional conference organiser (PCO), was the first company to become members in this category. Brightelm is owned and run by MD Rob Eveleigh who has more than 20 years’ experience in the hospitality and events industries.
“We’re delighted to be the first PCO to take advantage of the new supplier membership category,” said Eveleigh. “Bristol is truly a great city for meetings with a wide range of excellent facilities.
“Partnerships between destinations and professional conference organisers like Brightelm are paramount to be able to offer the full support package that many organisers require.”
In November, Bristol was highlighted as one of the UK’s most popular destinations for business meetings and events in the British Meetings & Events Industry Survey, rising from 11th to fifth place in the survey’s destination rankings.
