Located on the University of Warwick campus, Warwick Conferences encompass five flexible and dedicated meeting and event venues for up to 1,200 delegates, coupled with an exceptionally high-quality hotel-styled accommodation offer.

Paul Bartlett, Head of Sales at Warwick Conferences, comments:

"We are incredibly proud of this achievement. With so many extraordinary venues in attendance, it was fulfilling to see the team’s hard work and creativity recognised in the category of Best Venue Chain or Group.

In addition to this exhilarating award win, we were also awarded silver for the Best Catering at a Venue award. Our venues were recognised for their exceptional ability to create striking food concepts, an ongoing ethical commitment to their Soil Association Accreditation, and the investment into the skills development of their talented hospitality and catering teams.

Our diverse food offer taps into the latest consumer psyche and seeks inspiration from upcoming trends and menus. This has seen us mobilise offers such as delivering street food across the UK in our very own food truck.”

Clive Singleton, General Commercial Manager, comments:

"We work extremely hard to push boundaries and deliver fantastic experiences to our clients. Our staff take considerable pride in delivering exceptional customer service, as well as developing innovative and creative initiatives to ensure that we stand out as a venue that delivers exciting event experiences.

To be recognised in this respect validates our continuing hard work in the further development of the business and its outputs, continuously exceeding our customer expectations.”
