Choosing the right venue for your upcoming conference or business meeting can be a tricky task. These are important events that can have a significant impact on your business, which is why you will want to ensure that everything goes according to plan. Your full attention needs to be focused firmly on the meeting rather than potential issues or problems that your guests or delegates are facing.

Therefore, to ensure everything runs smoothly, you need to choose a venue that works for you. There are plenty of different choices available - make sure to pick between different locations, venues and the best hotels. Nottingham has many business facilities and venues that can cater to your individual needs.

Here are five important things to keep in mind when you are looking for the best venue for your next conference.

Local Hotels in Nottingham

Location is key when hosting meetings, conferences and corporate events. You will want to make sure that your guests will have no difficulty getting to the venue, which is why a centralised location with strong transport links is always a safe bet.

Best Western is located between Nottingham and Derby, just off the M1. We have great transport connections to both cities and are only 15 minutes away from the city centres. For international guests, East Midlands airport is also situated close by. This puts us in a convenient location as we are easily accessible from all directions through Nottingham's great infrastructure and public transport. Plus, if you need additional transport during your time with us, our reception has a range of trusted taxi contacts which we can easily arrange for you and your guests.


If your conference is a longer event or stretches over several days, you may also need to consider arranging accommodation for your guests. Make sure that your chosen hotel offers well-furnished rooms and has the capacity to cater to larger parties if this applies to your group. After all, it makes much more sense to place all your guests under the same roof.

Conference Facilities

State-of-the-art conference facilities and dedicated rooms or spaces in which you can hold your event are always the best options. Here at Best Western Nottingham and Derby, we offer two purpose-built conference rooms and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, making sure that your day continues uninterrupted by poor technology. Pens, paper and projectors are also provided in our conference rooms.

Exclusive Packages

We are pleased to be able to offer two packages - day delegate packages and residential packages that can help you plan your event more economically. Whether your meeting winds up in a day or you are planning a conference which stretches over multiple days, our all-inclusive packages will help you to find the perfect fit to match your needs.

Dining Options

After a day spent at the conference, your guests will be bound to have worked up an appetite. We have a top-quality restaurant of our very own right here in the hotel, offering the perfect choice when it comes to both convenience and delicious food.

Of course, each conference will require a different venue due to contributing factors such as the number of guests, where they are coming from, and the nature of your event. However, with the handy addition of our guide, you should soon find yourself well on the way towards being able to select the perfect venue to ensure that your next conference is a resounding success!
