Victory Services Club
Now responds to event enquiries within 24 hours
Located near Marble Arch in central London, the Victory Services Club (VSC) stands as a distinguished private military members club. With a rich history dating back to its establishment in 1907, the Club boasts seven impressive event rooms that can accommodate gatherings ranging from 10 to 300 attendees. These versatile spaces serve as ideal venues for a variety of events, including conferences, meetings, exhibitions, receptions, and award ceremonies.
What sets the Victory Services Club apart is its charitable status as a registered charity. The Club operates with a noble purpose, reinvesting the revenue generated from its commercial events into impactful initiatives.
In 2008, the Victory Services Club became the first London venue to be awarded the Meetings Industry Association (MIA) AIM Gold accreditation. This esteemed recognition stands as a testament to the Club’s dedication to maintaining high standards and delivering exceptional experiences. Furthermore, the VSC has attained the Hospitality Assured status, a quality standard established by the Institute of Hospitality for customer-facing businesses. This achievement reflects the Club’s unwavering commitment to providing top-notch service and ensuring customer satisfaction.
The Victory Services Club experienced a significant shift in booking behaviours, with a notable surge in last-minute enquiries and event reservations. This sudden change in demand had a direct impact on various aspects of their venue management process, particularly in terms of response times and overall operational efficiency.
To address these challenges and capitalise on growing business opportunities, the Victory Services Club recognised the need to streamline its information management practices. The club sought a comprehensive solution that would alleviate the burden of manual updates and ensure that prices and menu items were consistently updated across all departments.
