Often considered to be a mere rumour in the hospitality industry, we can confirm that Ross Goss really does exist! Venues call to be on it; the Operations team eagerly await the next chapter with bated breath.
So, what exactly IS Ross Goss?
When you only have so many working hours in the day, who has time for a gazillion e-mails flooding in with industry updates on who’s doing what and when? It’s enough to make you dunk your head in your morning coffee, just to escape the endless pinging of your in-box. Therefore, the event nerds at First Choice Conference & Events headquarters put their minds together and formulated the clever plan of having our Venue Relations expert Ross formulate a fortnightly news bulletin of all things hip and happening in the world of events.
With so many new places opening, current venues re-branding and new contacts trying to infiltrate First Choice Conference & Events H.Q as if it were Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory, what better way to keep the busy Ops team bang up to date than to send them a regular report- crammed with industry info and sprinkled with a liberal dose of Ross’s dark (and slightly bonkers) humour.
So how does one feature in a Ross Goss report? Well you don’t have to beg! Simply call Ross or drop him an e-mail and he’ll be able to assess the suitability of featuring your news in his regular tabloid. We’re not talking meeting rooms that have had a lick of paint; we want spice, we want colour, we want GOSSIP! Maybe it’s a brand-new venue opening in a key location, perhaps it’s a full refurbishment of a well-known venue, sometimes it’s an exciting change in the industry that no-one else knows…yet!
Eventually, Ross Goss will not just be for the beady eyes of our events team but will also be available to some of our key clients, who we book events for in the U.K and overseas. This way, they get a flavour for the industry, ultimately bringing them closer to us as somewhere they can know, like and trust to help run their corporate events!
