The UK Blog Awards


73, 352 public votes. 2000 blogs entered. One Great George Street's venue and events blog, oggsvenue.com, has reached the final stages of the 2016 UK Blog Awards and has been listed as a top 10 UK industry blog.

Renowned for its high quality of standards and service, the historic yet highly innovative venue One Great George Street has gained an excellent reputation for hosting well-managed conferences and events, meetings, gala dinners, press conferences, wedding ceremonies and receptions, lectures and seminars, fashion shows, exhibitions and filming. The venue’s in-house dream team has become a sought-after council to event industry professionals, and 2015 saw the launch of oggsvenue.com – a new forum to add to the venue’s extensive social media platforms, and on which the venue’s team can divulge its winning formulas to diverse audiences. 

During the evaluation process it was noted: "Using WordPress as a platform Editor Katie McCarthy designed a customised blog synergised with the company’s existing social media platforms. The design showcases the company’s wealth of in-house expertise with clear, visual representation of the blog’s many contributors. In addition to developing and launching the blog last year, Katie manages the blog’s proactive editorial calendar; coordinating content from the venue’s expert in-house contributors to cater for the venue’s distinct target markets – from conference and event organisers addressed by the Events Manager to wedding planners and brides-to-be addressed by the Wedding Planner. Spontaneous and reactive posts are also encouraged thereby ensuring the blog remains fluid."
