Avoiding event management disasters: Why the right transport for international conference speakers is so important

Yorkshire is host to some of the UK’s most high profile events at venues like Harrogate International Centre, the Royal Armouries in Leeds. These events cover a wide range of topics: For example, we recently chauffeured a group to the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers conference at Briar Court Hotel in Huddersfield and the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Automation and Computing, which is attended by some of the world’s leading technology thinkers, will take place at the University of Huddersfield in September 2017.

Conference organisers have a lot to think about when it comes to co-ordinating all the people and resources involved in pulling off a seamless event with an international audience. Ensuring that high profile speakers, exhibitors and sponsors are well looked after is often at the top of their list. A delayed or disgruntled speaker can throw the whole programme off track!

At Elite Voyager, we take one head ache off your hands by ensuring that your conference ‘VIPs’ make it to the event on time and in style. Our professional, reliable, friendly drivers can ‘meet and greet’ individuals or groups from any UK airport in our fleet of luxury vehicles which include features like mobile wifi and plenty of space for luggage.

Treat your staff to luxury transport to the Christmas party

Making your Christmas party a special occasion is an important task for office managers and personal assistants; providing hard-working employees with the opportunity to not only let their hair down but also socialise in an environment outside of the corporate office.

To give your event the added edge, why not arrange luxury transport for your loyal team members? Starting the night with a stylish touch, senior staff and deserving team members can be transported in premium vehicles allowing for a door-to-door service.

Our suited chauffeurs will arrange a pick-up location to collect employees in our fleet of top-of-the-range vehicles, including a Mercedes V Class people carrier which seats six – perfect for collecting larger groups and taking them direct to the party!

Here’s three things you should consider when you’re tasked with arranging the Christmas party:

1.      Set a clear budget which includes transport: Having a budget in mind which includes transport is one of the first things to plan for. Knowing this before making enquiries will give you an idea of how extravagant you can be.

2.      Have a ‘surprise’ element which employees won’t be expecting: We’ve all been to business events which are the same as the previous year, so make sure you mix things up a bit. Small touches like luxury transport for employees will make your event a hit before they’ve even arrived!

3.      Allow plenty of time: Christmas is a busy time for everyone, in both business and personal calendars. Make sure you book venues, catering and transport far enough in advance to guarantee the ideal date for everyone.
