There are many online companies offering private home owners the opportunity to pay a registration fee and advertise their homes to potential visitors to London for the Olympics. The Partners at London Village Rentals are keen to distance their business from this model, with the new outdoor marketing campaign they hope to reach a new audience and show the points of differentiation.
Managing Director Mark Sheppard explains the thinking behind the campaign; ‘The London Village Rentals website has been very successful for our business, we have managed to attract visitors to the site to view the range of accommodation options and the scope of hospitality and destination management services we are able to offer. At London Village Rentals we believe that, as the Games draw closer and the excitement builds, more companies and organisations may consider Olympic theme hospitality and events as rewards for valued staff, customers or suppliers. When they come to that conclusion we want them to talk to us’. The outdoor campaign features banners strategically placed to catch the eye of business leaders and executives as the commute into the capital.
http://www.LondonVillageRentals.com have a good track record in helping to arrange hospitality and events; they are currently sourcing a hospitality house which will be used as a main base for dignitaries, sponsors and officials for one of the major European National Olympic Committees. Mark recognises that not all organisations have the same access to hospitality funding, ‘We deal with companies seeking to provide key people with a rewarding experience within budget restrictions and we can provide access to good events that don’t cost the Earth. We can provide tickets to parties in fabulous locations, top class food and drink and with large screens to keep in touch with the Olympic action. We even have events planned on the nights of the opening and closing ceremonies at great rooftop venues with spectacular views across the river Thames. The atmosphere will be amazing and the locations will afford unrivalled views of the Olympic firework displays.’ London Village Rentals will also supply private cars or luxury coaches to make sure your guests get home safely or if they prefer to stay over London Village Rentals have a range of accommodation options.
Whether the team at London Village Rentals are providing accommodation or hospitality, one of their key strengths is being able to offer bespoke options to suit all budgets and requirements. The company’s website, www.londonvillagerentals.com reflects this showing the range of destination management services covered by this growing company.
The website showcases the range of accommodation available including stunning private homes set in the beautiful Kent countryside, Central London townhouses and a choice of 3* to 5* hotels. The team at http://www.LondonVillageRentals.com also recognise that many people will be travelling to London on a restricted budget. Product Director Ashley Connell has been helping sports associations from several countries source suitable accommodation, ‘the London Olympic Organising Committee look after the athletes needs including their accommodation but obviously family and friends of the athletes want to see them compete. Seeing a loved one take part in the greatest sporting competition in the World is a once in a lifetime opportunity, we don’t want the cost to be prohibitive. We have managed to source some quality, value hotels and have availability in hostels, for those travelling on a particularly tight budget we also have some luxury trailers near the main Olympic Park and camping facilities near to Ebbsfleet International rail station in Kent. Kent is a great option for many travellers because the High Speed Rail link means that journey times to Stratford for the main Olympic venues is only 11 minutes and ticket holders are entitled to concessionary fares.’
London Village Rentals are committed to providing excellent destination management services. Based in Kent they are perfectly placed to take the business beyond the Olympics with great access to London’s West End, the Channel Tunnel and the Excel centre. 2012 will be a busy year for the team at London Village Rentals with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Dickens Bicentenary due to bring more visitors to the region.
