About Venuemasters


Venuemasters was formed in 1981 by 25 academic venues that wanted to share the costs of marketing their facilities to event organisers in the Business and Leisure Tourism marketplace. Although the organisation has grown and developed over the past 30 years, the basic principle of agreeing and implementing an effective plan to market a group of unique venues with similar needs remains the same.

As a not-for-profit marketing consortium we're dedicated to promoting the meeting and accommodation facilities available at c50 academic venues. We provide event organisers looking for quality meeting space or group accommodation with a free venue finding service, our friendly team work with them to understand their needs and requirements and provide a list of venues that could help.
