The Kia Oval joins AEV
The Association of Event Venues (AEV) has announced that The Kia Oval, London, has joined the organisation as its newest member. The home of Surrey County Cricket Club since 1845, The Kia Oval has expanded a great deal since, and now hosts over 2,000 events every year.
Charlie Hodgson, managing director of The Kia Oval, explained why the cricket ground had chosen to join the AEV, saying, “AEV membership offers us great access to industry intelligence, shared best practice, and the chance to contribute our historic venue experience to the venue community.”
Rachel Parker, AEV director, added, “It's a privilege to welcome The Kia Oval as our latest member, with its iconic place in sporting history and superb reputation as an event venue. Each time a new venue joins us, regardless of type, all our members benefit from its contributions, whether they're through surveys, working groups or benchmarking initiatives, or simply coming to one of our events and meeting industry colleagues.”
