Conferences and meetings are essential to many different industries. From Nottingham to Derby, and even further afield, many important discussions and decisions stem from these events. That is why it's so important to get all the details right - something that Best Western Nottingham Derby always excels at. With accommodation room for up to sixty delegates, our theatre-style presentation space, several meeting room suites, and our excellent range of support equipment, when it comes to conferences, Best Western Nottingham Derby knows best.
Whether you need meeting rooms in Nottingham or are planning a conference in Derby, make sure you consider each of the following six factors when choosing a venue.
Your colleagues or delegates need to be brought together in a central, easily accessible location. Not only will this help the event go smoothly, but first impressions count. If you want to make your meeting or conference a success, choose a location that matters.
The style and sophistication of the specific location will give a particular air to the kind of event you are organising. Is this a conference where serious questions that could dominate the future of your industry will be decided or is it more the kind of event where participants will be invited to take part in a lot of blue-sky-thinking? Vastly different ambiences will be required, and the venue you choose will play a key part in making the day a success.
Transport Links and Parking
Regardless of if you have the perfect ambience and have invited all the right people, if your delegates cannot arrive in good time, much of your effort will be wasted. With its strategic position just off junction 25 of the M1 motorway between London and Leeds, Best Western Nottingham Derby is easily accessible by car. Along with the ample supply of spaces in our secure car park and the short distance between the mainline stations of Nottingham and Derby, you will be exceptionally hard pressed to find a more accessible conference location in the region.
Technical glitches and software difficulties - in the twenty-first-century business environment, these issues can spell disaster for your event. With our LCD projectors and property-wide Wi-Fi connections, at Best Western Nottingham Derby, you can be sure that your technical requirements will be met.
Conducting important business on an empty stomach or without the promise of a good meal later in the day is a recipe for instant corporate event disaster. At Best Western Nottingham Derby, we offer a full English breakfast, two-course hot and cold midday meal or working lunch, and a three-course meal in the evening. If your guests want to enjoy something extra special, we can happily point them in the direction of The Grill at Twenty Five, our on-site restaurant that offers a sweeping range of favourite dishes.
Depending on the kind of event you are organising, this may not be something that can be quickly and easily wrapped up over the course of a single day. If your delegates will need somewhere to stay during the course of your conference or meetings, Best Western Nottingham Derby is here to help. All our rooms are equipped with a 40-inch LED TV, an ultra-secure laptop safe, a full range of luxurious bathroom products and a complimentary hairdryer. This means that all your attendees will be well-rested and ready to do business.
Conferences take careful planning, preparation, and organisational know-how. Consider all these issues when you plan your event and it's sure to be a resounding success.
