What's Floating Around

What’s Floating Around? 21 May 2018


Welcome to another week and with the great weather (please pray it continues!)  it’s been an amazing opportunity to take a look at some truly fabulous properties in the last week – to help keep our knowledge up to date for our free venue finding service.

The Nottingham Belfry kindly hosted Cloud 9 on Tuesday for a team meeting and lunch and its always a great reminder of how stunning and stylish this venue is. Ideal for large events and the layout lend itself to several different styles – but we better get in quick as news has reached us that this hotel which is currently part of the Q portfolio is set to be a Marriott, so international business will soon be heading this way, making the venue difficult to secure.

We also discovered a bit of a hidden gem last week at The Mercure Daventry Court Hotel and Spa. It might not be your first choice, Daventry, but easy to find and just off the Motorway, a really great hotel.  It’s huge and can take 700 theatre style plus it has great outdoor space an ad a dedicated training centre. Additionally, all of the bedrooms have recently been refurbished and it has one of the largest reception areas we’ve ever seen.

We’re hosting the AIEA summer carnival there in August which should be great fun so if you are an independent agency and not yet signed up, do please get in touch as we would love to welcome you along as our guests.

We also enjoyed a great fam with our friends at Trident Hospitality last week at the Lane End Conference Centre in High Wycombe, and it was great to be pleasantly surprised by the great space and facilities. Although it’s a little out of our radar for some events, for specific ones it would make a truly ideal location.

Great bedrooms and wells equipped, and fresh-looking meeting rooms which lend themselves to all sorts of possibilities and what we can recommend, is that even with the smallest of groups, you would feel like the only delegates on site, such is the great adaptability of the layout.

Don’t forget that we can find your next venue for free no matter the event large or small, so do get one touch!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine.
