WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
The Liverpool Convention Bureau were one of the most efficient bureaus I’ve ever dealt with. They strenuously worked hard to ensure our first event in Liverpool in 2015 ran without a hitch and were well placed to get me the best rates for accommodation for my group due to their excellent relationship with the hotels in the area. I threw a few curveballs at them and they were only too willing to help; nothing was too much trouble! They have fantastic local knowledge and it was a real pleasure to work with Kate, Sarah and the team. I look forward to throwing a few more challenges their way in 2017!
– SARAH GREENWOOD, EVENTS MANAGER, BRITISH CONTACT LENS ASSOCIATION
LCB provided an accommodation service for delegates at the Hospice UK annual conference in 2015. We were delighted with the expertise and knowledge of the friendly team, not just in sourcing a wide range of accommodation for all budgets, but also with the helpful suggestions of venues for our conference dinner.
– RUTH REID, COURSES AND CONFERENCES MANAGER, HOSPICE UK
Liverpool Convention Bureau played a huge part in making our conference a success. The team made planning our conference so much easier by utilising their local knowledge and bureau services such as accommodation booking, finding venues for social events, and organising walking tours, allowing us more time to develop our conference programme itself and promote attendance. Liverpool Convention Bureau’s early involvement in the concept of coming to Liverpool to the final planning and delivery was the key to the perfect partnership between event organiser and convention bureau. The enthusiasm the team have for the City, ability to work with our partners such as our PCO and venue (ACC) and early support were an important part of the decision to bring Intergalva to Liverpool.

CASE STUDY: ASSOCIATION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATIONS
Liverpool Convention Bureau were chosen by the Association of Local Government Communications to support their Annual Conference held in partnership with the Government Communications Service in Liverpool on 1st-2nd November 2016. The Bureau used our local knowledge and expertise to source venues for the welcome reception, awards evening and the conference itself which attracted over 300 people from local and central government across the UK. Our relationships allowed LGcomms to tap in to reduced rates available through the Convention Bureau for their accommodation booking service and venue spaces.
“The Convention Bureau were a huge help to me when planning our event in Liverpool. Our conference is UK wide so we like to take it round the county each year and being London based means I often have to rely on local knowledge when it comes to finding venues. The Bureau showed us locations for our conference and evening events and helped us pick the perfect venues to showcase the unique history and beauty of Liverpool – ensuring that our delegates were able to leave with a great overview of Liverpool as a city. The service didn’t stop there though! The accommodation page that was set up for our delegates offered great rates at hotels and left me able to concentrate on other areas of my event. The team were always available if I had questions and didn’t cease their work until my event was in the capable hands of the venue staff we had chosen to use.”
