The new venue will offer 650sqm of contemporary and flexible event space in a new, standalone facility adjacent to Warwick Conferences’ existing venues on the campus. It will open in September 2016.
The venue will be able to seat 350 on a single flat-floor space. It will be available on a single customer only basis for exclusivity and will include onsite finishing kitchens, integrated AV systems and fast, free wi-fi. Surrounded by trees and landscaping on the lakefront, the venue will have a full-length glass wall to allow for natural light and views.
Delegates using the venue will also have access to Warwick Conferences’ 479 hotel-style en-suite bedrooms in the adjacent Scarman and Radcliffe training and conference centres, as well as free on-site parking.
Richard Harrison, head of conference centres at Warwick Conferences, said: "This is an important investment for both Warwick Conferences and the Midlands region as a whole. Demand for high capacity, high quality, genuinely flexible event space is rising and there are few venues that can meet all these requirements in Central England currently - and even fewer that can do so without compromise.
"As a completely new development, our new venue will offer an uncompromised, contemporary and striking space that will give clients a complete blank canvas for their event. But of course the space itself is only one part of the experience. Bookers and their delegates will also benefit from the collective expertise of Warwick Conferences’ award winning team, a completely new approach to event catering with exciting new menus, and the prestige of being a part of a globally respected university."
