Leading event production and services company PSL is launching an innovative programme for conference centres, hotels and meeting venues. The Venue Partnership Scheme provides privileged access at uniquely competitive rates to PSL’s creative skills, technical expertise and equipment.

Effectively, PSL’s scheme gives its partner venues a ‘Virtual AV Department’, enviably stocked with the latest technology and experienced staff that are familiar with the venue’s facilities. Some of London’s most high-profile conference and meeting venues have already joined up, including The Brewery, Kensington Roof Gardens, 45 Millbank and Brocket Hall.

“Two factors make this scheme unique,” says PSL Sales Director Darren Glossop. “We believe we are the only presentation services supplier to offer creative expertise and equipment in one complete service. And we are able to give our partner venues an unrivalled degree of choice in terms of technical solutions.”

Central to the Venue Partnership scheme is a new streamlined ratecard, which makes it easier than ever before for venues to prepare technical services quotations for events. All prices are shown inclusive of delivery and collection, at daily and weekly rates. The ratecard gives access to all the contents of PSL’s 70,000 sq. foot warehouse, which houses the very latest audio-visual and presentation technology, from high-definition video projectors and LED lighting to every size of plasma screen.

Partner venues will also be able to call on PSL’s extensive production department to inject more creativity into their events. Providing a wide range of fully integrated production services, from room renderings to set design to a full event branding package, the PSL team can deliver considerable savings, helping venues to maximise their own earning potential.

Participation in the Venue Partnership Scheme builds a valuable familiarity between venue and supplier. PSL engineers get to know the venue’s strengths and quirks, everything from the fire exits and ceiling heights to the precise location of a squeaky floorboard. Savings are made in both time and money, and the potential for error is massively reduced.

“Being part of this scheme can make a venue look good!” explains Darren Glossop. “Venue managers can pitch confidently for bigger and better projects, knowing that they’ve got access to the equipment and the expertise to carry them off. PSL will provide free extras to our partners such as CAD and artist visualisations of events, which will make it easier for venues to sell their own space. And the preferential charges on the new ratecard enable venues to improve on their own profit margins.”
