Brands that have held events there this year include IBM, which held a tembuiding event and dinner themed around a football tournament and Navman Wireless, which held a company conference in February combined with teambuilding activities. IBM plans to return to the venue for an event in 2015. 

Located in the heart of Keele University’s rural campus and featuring 19th century, Grade-II listed Keele Hall amongst its facilities, KUC&E has hosted 2,811 events in the past year, including small business meetings and large corporate conferences for hundreds of delegates.

Marcus Wilson, head of marketing at Keele University, said: "It really has been a fantastic year for the KUC&E team, with a number of impressive business wins under our belt, as well as some great awards. We pride ourselves on the versatile facilities across the University and believe it is our flexible approach which has undoubtedly contributed to our success in 2014, particularly our dedication to being able to provide an alternative to traditional networking and conferencing if desired."

KUC&E has also ended the year on a high note, having been selected as one of the key venues for the UK Corporate Games - a nationally recognised competition which will welcome over 4,000 competitors to Staffordshire in June. Ernst & Young and Vodafone have registered 200 and 300 employees respectively to compete in at the Games.
