Wynyard Park-based accommodation, conference and event management specialist Hospitality Guaranteed marked its tenth anniversary this summer with a special celebration at the Crowne Plaza Newcastle – Stephenson Quarter hotel.
Hospitality Guaranteed offers a range of online solutions for corporate event, conference and accommodation management, including a ‘one stop shop’ system for bookings, plus a venue finding service and support from a dedicated team of hospitality specialists.
The team – which has grown from 12 employees to 18 in the last year – had plenty to celebrate at the anniversary event as it looked back on ten years in business.
Since 2006, Hospitality Guaranteed has booked more than 6000 conferences and meetings, and 787,998 delegates have attended events it has booked for clients. The company’s turnover has grown at least 30 per cent year on year since it launched in 2006.
The company now works with more than 2000 conference and meeting venue suppliers in the UK – including the recently opened Crowne Plaza Newcastle – and has access to more than 80,000 accommodation venues worldwide.
The company developed a unique bookings and management system HG One Stop, which provides the foundation for its online systems. These include Conference Stop, an online venue finding and conference management tool and Apprentice Stop, a system that supports businesses running apprentice or staff residential programmes.
Launched from a home office by Amanda Jackson and Victoria Brunton, Hospitality Guaranteed moved to a site in Castle Eden in 2007 before locating to new premises at Wynyard Business Park in 2013.
Victoria Brunton, director and co-founder of Hospitality Guaranteed said: “We were delighted to hold our tenth anniversary celebrations at the Crowne Plaza Newcastle, which we now work with on a regular basis. It is a magnificent venue that has added a great deal to the North East’s already vibrant hospitality scene - staff really looked after us and made it a night to remember for the whole team.
“The last year has seen significant growth for the company and we’re proud that so many new clients have come on board during that time. By offering a quick, streamlined route to effective accommodation, conference and event management – through our innovative online solutions and specialist support – we are helping businesses to cut administration costs and save valuable time, and this has proved to be highly popular.
Amanda Jackson, director and co-founder of Hospitality Guaranteed, added: “Ten years is a major milestone for any company to reach and we’re excited about what the next decade has in store.”
Amanda McBride, director of sales at Crown Plaza Newcastle - Stephenson Quarter, said: “Congratulations to Hospitality Guaranteed on a successful 10 years in business. It’s always a pleasure to work with the team and we were delighted to host their anniversary event, making it a memorable celebration for them.
“On behalf of all of us here at Crowne Plaza Newcastle, I wish them continued success and we look forward to working with them in the years to come.”
