VenueVerdict Accreditations and Commendations – Q4 2019

By Karen Small

VenueVerdict is the only accreditation programme determined entirely by the voice of the customer and based on the meeting experience. It provides an independent measurement and improvement tool for venues to understand the end-to-end journey of event planners, identify service gaps and benchmark against the competition.  To find out more or to be a part of this syndicated research please contact meetings@bva-bdrc.com.

"Customers increasingly value transparency from their suppliers, and the meetings industry is no different.  Independently collecting feedback to assess the meeting experience really demonstrates venues that deliver on this for their clients. The VenueVerdict awards and accreditations celebrate the venues that have consistently excelled in their service and product delivery. My congratulations go to all winners for their hard work and well-earned achievements in 2019." Karen Small, BVA BDRC
