The world of corporate events is ever-changing, and you can never be completely certain what’s around the corner. At this time of year, the meetings and events industry like to look ahead and try to predict the big trends for the year to come, and while nothing is set in stone, our commercial director Marc Webster has a few ideas about what 2018 may bring.
“Planning events for companies can be challenging, especially finding an events space that offers all you are looking for. The venue not only needs to have the space and facilities you require, but also an efficient team to ensure your event runs to plan.
“Companies are always looking for something new and inspiring for corporate away days and meetings, and we believe this is set to grow in 2018. Gone are the days where businesses would be content with a standard meeting room and a buffet lunch; they want to provide their staff with a unique experience which helps boost creativity to get the most out of their event.
“The facilities we have across the estate at Whittlebury allow us the flexibility to offer a combination of meetings across our 62 rooms for up to 500 delegates, team building activities, spa treatments and 36-hole golf course, catering for all needs. This enables companies to reward staff with fun activities alongside the more serious business focus
“Most industry reports are indicating that 2018 will be a strong year within the domestic market for meetings and events, and the need for corporate clients to seek out service-led venues is at the top of the criteria list. At Whittlebury Hall & Spa we are AIM Gold accredited, so are confident at providing not only top-quality facilities but also service that is second to none.”
