BDRC Continental, one of the UK’s leading research consultancy in the field of hospitality, has handed over another £3,000 to event industry charity Meeting Needs. In total, BDRC has donated more than £100,000 to the charity in the past decade and the latest donation represents activities in the second quarter.

The gift of £3,085 has been raised through the promotion of BDRC’s feedback service, VenueVerdict, where every completed response from customers triggers a donation of 50p to Meeting Needs.

Jennifer Jenkins, chair of Meeting Needs, said: “BDRC’s commitment to Meeting Needs is second to none and we are very grateful indeed for the company’s continued generosity. Their contributions fund important projects that change many lives for the better.”

VenueVerdict is an independent customer feedback and accreditation programme used by meeting and event venues to drive improvements in client experience. Based around an online survey, it allows properties to benchmark their ratings against their competitors.
