Venues Back Fair Pricing
UK Event Industry Fair Pricing & Practice Charter for London 2012
350 signatories have pledged support to the 2012 UK Event Industry Fair Pricing and Practice Charter. Launched by Visit London, the FPPC is designed to ensure that pricing for the period around the 2012 Games is both fair and reasonable, providing a voluntary code of practice for both UK venues and event suppliers.
The latest signatory is IET Venue: Savoy Place, situated on the Embankment.
Anna Clover, manager, IET Venues and Facilities, said: "The Fair Pricing and Practice Charter is a key initiative to help ensure that companies are not overcharged for hosting corporate hospitality at the London Olympics, and IET Venues is proud to be involved in this. London offers great capacity and variety in both accommodation and event venues for the games, but given that the ballot for tickets opened back in March, now is the time for businesses to get moving on planning and booking their events."
Visit London director of business tourism, Tracy Halliwell, added: "London is the first Olympic city to create a charter like this and for Visit London as the official business convention bureau it's all about maintaining the business tourism we have and looking after that future business legacy for the city and country."
