In the run up to the Summit later this year, we caught up with sponsors Verteda to hear about their latest success at Southampton FC, UK with their new event management platform – eVents500.

Home to the Saints since 2001, St Mary’s Stadium is a UEFA 4-star rated stadium. With a capacity of more than 32,500, it is the largest football stadium in the south of England outside London. Hospitality and events facilities are managed by Halo Conferences & Events – with Verteda a strategic technology partner. Facilities include an impressive 11 function rooms alongside 40 executive boxes that are available for private hire; the venue hosts some 2,000 events every year, catering for 100,000 customers.

eVents500 means the Halo Conferences & Events team can plan and deliver the highest quality events at St. Mary’s Stadium with more effective back office operations, improved speed and productivity for the Halo team, improved customer satisfaction, enabling more profitable conferences and events – and more revenue opportunities.

I had a great time and more importantly I learned a great deal. The networking alone was worth the trip but when you add the ability to come back and improve your business…well then you have a real winner

Probably the best place to be on the planet to discuss this exciting industry that we all work in

Your conferences are well run, well thought out, and well executed. I’ve been to many, and really appreciate the way you handle yourself. Well done.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, which isn’t a phrase normally associated with doing events, but it was really good and we have a lot of excellent contacts to follow up on.
