UKFE, organiser of the inaugural edition of The Venue Expo at EventCity has said the event shows there is “a gap in the market in the North for such an event”.
UKFE claims the show attracted 3,272 unique visitors attending on 1-2 September.
The 2015 edition of the show is to relocate to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool.
Speakers at the 2014 event included Simon Gidman from VisitEngland, Alistair Turner from Britain for Events and Kevin Jackson from George P Johnson.
The Venue Expo show manager Joseph Davies said: “The Venue Expo 2014 delivered all our expectations proving that there most certainly was a gap in the market in the North for such an event.
“The success of the show can be seen with rebooks for 2015 taking place on the second day of the show and the great feedback received. Plans for 2015 are in full force.”
