In April 2018 Shaping Portsmouth, under the leadership of Andy Grays from the Portsmouth Cultural Trust, led a team of twelve of the City's hotels & venues in creating a Portsmouth Convention Bureau to coordinate their focus to increase the number of businesses from the south of England that hold their conferences & conventions here in Portsmouth.
The benefits of bringing these organisations into the city will include more jobs and more tourism. We have a great number of high-quality facilities, and by combining our resources we will be able to take a greater wallet share of the market.
We have designed, and will soon launch, the website that will be used by those business wishing to run their conferences here. It will be a world-class portal, showcasing the benefits of the city, as well as the first twelve venues in the consortium. We have plans to build out from the first set of partners and also increase the offerings the website will have.
Look out for the launch coming soon!
