Yesterday I had a meeting with Jonathan Davidson, a senior executive at Payne & Gunter and the boss of the boss of Richard Fisher, our Catering Manager. The subject was how Stationers' Hall can maximise the opportunities for Hall hire during the London 2012 Olympics. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for venues in London and I have set myself and Susana Ruiz de Sousa, our Commercial Manager, the target of ensuring the Hall is fully booked throughout July and August 2012. Despite the opportunities of the Olympics, this is a tough challenge and we need to work very closely with Payne & Gunter and Compass, their parent Group, to prepare an effective marketing pitch. There is a chance that we might 'block book' the Hall to an individual country or perhaps a global media organisation; but this may be a long shot. Any ideas that members might have on how we can best exploit the opportunities of London 2012 would be very welcome.
