The 410-acre campus has more than 75 exhibition, meeting and conference rooms for up to 2,000 delegates, in addition to facilities at Burleigh Court, Holywell Park and The Link Hotel.

Imago, which was launched in 2003 to unify the venue’s conference areas, has welcomed the expansion. Emma Boynton, head of sales and marketing at Imago, said: "It’s really exciting to be able to offer clients a new event space on campus – it is an outstanding facility to have in our portfolio. The West Park Teaching Hub offers everything event organisers need for successful meetings and conferences.’

She added: "Our campus offering is about more than the buildings. Being able to utilise the university’s reputation for academic excellence is also a great way for event organisers to enhance the content of their event so it has real value for delegates attending."
