If you carry out training session either within your company or to your clients, you’ll need a training centre in Manchester that delivers the best facilities and service. At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we have a training room that offers businesses a range of services to ensure that your training events stand the best chance of success.
We have years of experience supporting businesses with their training needs so read on to find out how you can set up your training room to guarantee success.
A Room with a View
If possible, opt for a room with natural lights. Hotels often offer training rooms with no windows which can feel oppressive particularly if you are planning a full day training event. Windows will give the room a feeling of space and allow fresh air into the room to avoid that midday slump!
It can help to arrange the room so that the windows are towards the back of your delegates. This then throws natural light onto the speaker at the front and your delegates won’t be distracted by going-on outside the room.
Plan Your Day
When planning the training schedule think about when you will have breaks for tea and coffee. People are more alert in the morning so you can build longer sessions in there. The afternoon can become a struggle as people start to feel sleepy after lunch so more frequent breaks can keep people focused.
There is constant easy access to hot beverages throughout the day in each training room which is less disruptive than people leaving and returning to go to the café.
Create Some Space
Give yourself some space to move at the front of the room. People will find the presentation more engaging if you are able to move around freely rather than being sat stationary in a corner. Don’t opt for a table at the head of the room as many traditional room layouts provide. By removing this barrier your training session will feel more comfortable and informal. The delegates are more likely to work together and you can join in with them too.
Keep Your Eye on the Time
If you can move the clock behind your audience’s heads so you can keep an eye on the time. This will help you to keep on track without anyone knowing!

Location is Everything
It is true that the most important decision you will make will be the location of your offices. Before you make a decision it is important to ensure your business needs will be met in a particular area. Think about the day-to-day running of the business. Will the office be easily accessible for supplier, clients and employees? Do you expect a high number of deliveries and will you need a large amount of parking space?
Look for a location that has easy access to major road and motorway networks. This is particularly important if your business relies on product and materials to be delivered on a regular basis. Manchester has brilliant transport networks via road, rail and air.
Consider how dynamic the business community is in the area. Moving to prime business location can offer great contacts and help you to access your market. For new businesses choosing a city such as Manchester can provide great kudos and help an emerging business develop its credibility.
If you are looking at a business park, understand what is on offer. Are there parking facilities? Is there an onsite cafe or restaurant which will offer benefits to staff and also provide a great area to entertain clients? How is the business park managed? Is there a team that manages security, site maintenance and does it have a welcoming reception with well presented professional staff?
All these elements will help your business to establish itself as a serious contender in your market and leave clients and potential employees with a positive impression of your company.

When choosing your training room there are several considerations to be made. How many people will be attending the training session? What types of equipment and technology will you need? Do you have any other specific requirements? No matter what type of training session you are planning the following areas need to be considered before you make a decision:
Getting the Location Right
Your number one consideration should be where to hold the training session. You need people to be able to access the venue easily whether by road or public transport. At Carrington Business Park we are ideally situated close to one of the North West’s leading cities for business and enterprise. Close to rail and motorway networks as well as Manchester International Airport you can be sure your attendees will be able to travel easily to your training venue. If you need to accommodate people with an overnight stay, Manchester and the surrounding areas boast high quality hotels to ensure the whole experience is a positive one. Parking is also a major consideration and again there is plenty on hand.
Know your Audience
Good planning will make all the difference so start by fully understanding your delegate’s requirements. You need a room with adequate space so that delegates are comfortable without the room being too big.
Consider the layout also. We can advise on the best layout to meet your training goals. Do you want to stimulate group discussion? Would you like delegates to break out into smaller groups? All your requirements are easily accommodated.
When you need things to run smoothly having technical back up can make all the difference. Also ensure that your chosen venue has the technology that you need whether you want access to Wi-Fi, video conferencing facilities, audio or projector equipment.
If things go wrong, it will reduce your stress levels to know that you have an onsite team to help you get things up and running. Someone who can quickly run off some photocopies or connect a device to Wi-Fi can ensure you are ready to go before your delegates arrive!

When looking for conference rooms you need to be sure to do your homework. When you hold any meeting or conference its essential to ensure that the image of the company will be well maintained and that your attendees leave the event with only positive thoughts about your business. If you fail to ensure you have chosen the right venue you will be left with disgruntled guests and the impact on your business could be detrimental. At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we have a range of smart conference rooms with a wide range of facilities to choose from should you need them. If you have a conference to plan, then use our handy checklist to ensure it is a resounding success!
A Great Location
Choosing a good location is one of the most important considerations to make when renting conference facilities. It needs to be somewhere that is easily accessed by your attendees by a range of transport networks and it should be easy to find. There is nothing worse than your guests arriving late and flustered because your conference room is hidden way off the beaten track. To get your conference off to the best start choose a venue that is close to motorway and rail networks, and also check there are adequate hotel facilities in the area if people are travelling a distance. A city like Manchester is well connected to transport links and will offer your guests a wide range of places to stay.
The type of conference will influence the type of facilities you require; however, most conferences will need a level of technical equipment for projecting presentations and if there is a training element you may require separate meeting rooms for break-out sessions. Think carefully about the facilities you will require and ensure that your chosen venue can deliver.
Good Car Parking Facilities
When looking at the location you also need to consider car parking facilities. Many attendees will travel to the venue by car and if car parking is easy and stress-free your conference will get off to a good start. Make sure you supply clear directions to the car park area and let people know in advance if there is a charge for parking.
When booking your conference room consider the maximum capacity required. You need to be sure that you can accommodate all your guests without them feeling crammed in so double check there is adequate space.
Regardless of how long your conference is, you’ll need to offer adequate refreshments. If it is an all-day event the venue will need to provide tea and coffee as an absolute minimum. However, it is best to find a venue with quality catering facilities with someone on hand to refill empty pots.
Finding the right venue can be a difficult task but with the right planning and an experienced team to help you, your event will run without a hitch. Contact our conference team at Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) on 0161 776 400 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
