A host of meeting rooms with a complete range of sizes and styles from the very small meeting through to 1200 persons. Plus, high quality audio-visual capability including large screen computer and video projection - whatever your size we have facilities to suit.

Our team of professional conference organisers are available to assist you with planning and guidance right through to a complete event management service if required - leaving you free to organise your programme with confidence.
