Golder Associates at East Midlands Conference Centre (EMCC)

Event: Client day and networking
Group size: 120
Agency: In-house
Date: 23 April 2009

Event Overview: Golder Associates (UK) is part of a global group of consulting companies specialising in ground engineering and environmental science, with more than 150 offices and almost 7,000 professionals operating across the world.
Golder approached the East Midlands Conference Centre (EMCC) to host its 2009 Client Day, influenced largely by its central Midlands location, elegant surroundings, close proximity to the motorway and ample free parking.
The EMCC is part of the portfolio of venues that makes up Nottingham Conferences, the conference and events division of the University of Nottingham.
The one-day event enabled Golder's clients and employees to discuss new trends and developments in the marketplace. Four conference sessions made use of the recently refurbished theatre for the plenary sessions and the smaller meeting spaces in The Gallery hosted the parallel sessions. The venue's Atrium was used for refreshment breaks and lunchtime dining.

Verdict: Golder Associates project manager Marie Townshend says: " One factor in our decision to use the EMCC was that it allowed us to book the facilities before our final attendance numbers had been confirmed, which was vital to us. Altogether, the event was very slick and professionally orchestrated and given our experience this year, we would definitely consider the EMCC again."
