The Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin has been announced as the host for the inaugural MEET South West industry reception.

MEET South West is pleased to announce that The Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin will host the inaugural MEET South West industry reception. Taking place after the conference finishes the hotel will provide a stunning backdrop for industry leaders to network and relax after a long day at the show.

Announcing the news Louise Torm, Hotel du Vin Sales Manager said:

“Last summer we introduced a brand-new meetings and events space, following an extensive refurbishment across the hotel. Many of the venue’s original features were uncovered during the renovation work and have been incorporated into the design – beautiful tiled flooring, original Turkish bath doorways and amazing stained-glass windows. Exposed brick walls, contemporary chandeliers, and bespoke artwork finish the look, creating a light and airy space that can be arranged for dining, presentations or board room style meetings that will stand out.

We’re delighted to be an official partner to the inaugural MEET South West event and look forward to welcoming everyone to our hotel.”

Speaking about the announcement, Thomas Heiser, MEET South West Co-Founder said:

“We’re delighted that The Avon Gorge will host our first industry reception. The hotel is a Bristol institution and under it’s new management is now even better. What better place to discuss the future of the SW event industry than looking out over such an iconic landmark. The reception will also provide a great opportunity to look around their new event spaces!”

Attendance at the MEET South West industry reception is by invitation only, to be sent out in the coming days. You can also register your interest by emailing
