The annual conference will take place in June 2013.
Ray Oliver, training and development manager, commented on the conference: "We selected the venue because the facilities catered for a large number of attendees, potentially around 500, and also offered syndicate rooms and bedrooms.
"The pre-conference planning and coordination by Jacquie Franklin, Meetings and Events Sales Executive, far exceeded our expectations.
"Secondly, the Event Manager, Ouahab, and his team, ensured all our needs were catered for including last minute changes to our plans.
"The Commonwealth Suite was spectacular for both our annual dinner and conference event. The discussion group rooms were well equipped and the flexibility of catering arrangements and refreshments ensured we had no disruption to our programme."
The hotel has 459 bedrooms and 43 meetings and events rooms offering flexible space, the largest of which can cater for up to 700 guests. The hotel is one of Europe's largest conference centres, with a globally accessible location and an extensive reward programme for conference planners.
The hotel’s refit includes new high tech bedrooms, plus elegant restaurants and bars. In excess of £18,000 has been spent on each of 350 Business Class and Deluxe bedrooms, including triple glazed windows, desk spaces featuring wireless and wired internet access, a conference telephone system and a docking station for iPhone and iPad.
