A Day in the Life Of: Tilly Broadbent
Welcome to our ‘Day in the Life’ blog series where we interview each professional conference organiser (PCO) to reflect on their career and experiences at Millbrook Medical Conferences (Millbrook).
Today, we’re introducing you to Tilly Broadbent, our cheerful Conference Coordinator. Tilly has worked in hospitality since the age of 16 and studied Event Management at Leeds Beckett University, which she graduated from in 2017.
As a part of her degree, she completed a placement year in America, working at Greenwich Country Club where she shadowed an Event Manager and undertook other duties within the club. Once Tilly completed her degree, she lived in Australia for two years, again working in the hospitality, events, and customer service industry.
Upon returning to the UK, Tilly joined Millbrook as an Administration Assistant, but it wasn’t long before she moved into an event organiser role. Tilly works on many of our face-to-face and virtual conferences. Our well-travelled Tilly is our go-to for everything venues with bags of knowledge on hotels and hotspots across the UK.

“I’m currently working on a Valve for Life webinar focused on TEER for mitral and tricuspid regurgitation as well as a few BCIS meetings, including the Coronary Intervention Trainees Course, Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Study Day and Coronary Intervention Trainees e-Course. I’m also planning for the 2023 Bristol ACHD Course, BISMICS, CHIP and CTO 2024!”

Do you find selecting a venue for your event a minefield? First you need to scour a city, or even a country and review possibly hundreds of contenders to find something suitable.
Once you’ve found a venue, there’s the array of seating layouts to contend with and reviewing room capacities, day delegate rates, menus, refreshment breaks, contracts, accommodation, audio-visual needs, and so much more. It’s enough to give you a headache.
Whilst you don’t enjoy the process of venue sourcing, you also don’t want or need full conference organisation support from a professional conference organiser. Does this sound like you? Great, we have a solution for you! Millbrook now offers a FREE venue sourcing service.
We have strong working relationships with the biggest hotel chains in the UK and have visited hundreds of venues giving us intimate knowledge of boutique and unique hotels alike. Our conference organisers have likely worked with many of the options available, so we can offer inside knowledge on the location and transport links, internal layouts and local accommodation recommendations.
Not only will we take the stress away from sourcing your next venue, but you will also benefit from additional discounts, at no cost to you. Due to our relationships with venues across the UK and our agency status, we can negotiate preferential rates on your behalf.
You’ve got nothing to lose!
The process is a total breeze. Get in touch with us here to get started. We’ll ask a few basic questions about the dates and requirements of your conference or event. Then, we’ll get started by combing through our extensive library of venues to see which suit your needs best and get in touch with them for quotes.
Within a week, we’ll share a wide variety of venues in one document and highlight their main features, as well as displaying all costs for direct comparison. If needed, you’ll also be able to lean on our team for inside support and impartial opinions so you’re not alone in making the final decision. Once you have made your decision, we’ll arrange contracts for you to sign. It’s that simple!
Get in touch today and we’ll take the pain out of venue sourcing for your next event.
