Make the right choice for your conference room

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.

Excellent Facilities

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.

Check Capacity

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.

Successful events with quality conference facilities in Manchester

Regardless of your business type or size at some point you will require conference facilities. In Manchester Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) is renowned for its professional conference and meeting rooms all fully equipped to ensure your event is a success.

Make a difference with stylish conference facilities

You could choose to hold a conference for a number of reasons. You may want to announce a new initiative or launch a new product to staff and customers or you may want to bring your sales team together for a training day or annual sales review. Another business may find that a conference suite is the perfect venue to hold a seminar to target new prospects. No matter what the end goal of your event, the overall impression created due to the venue and the facilities will leave a lasting impression on attendees. If you want people to remember the day for all the right reasons then choosing good conference facilities is crucial.

An event or conference is another way of expressing your brand or company values so you need to ensure the venue creates the right impression. Make sure every element is just right from the conference room decor, to the toilet facilities, refreshments and technical back up. If all these elements are well thought through and professional you’ll make the right impression. A good conference suite will have a team to provide back up so your delegates feel comfortable and the event runs without a hitch. A technical hiccup or limp sandwiches for lunch can leave your guests feeling less than satisfied.

Getting the details right

There are some key factors to consider when planning the day and choosing your venue:

Food and drink – When is your event taking place? Many conferences can start early with the need for breakfast and refreshments whereas others may run throughout the day. If you don’t feed and water your delegates they can become distracted and for full day events it’s wise to build in breaks with refreshments so people can recharge and network.

Layout – Different layouts are suitable for different events. At Carrington Business Park our team can help you decide on the perfect layout. For example a theatre set up will accommodate a larger conference whereas smaller briefings may find a U-shape set up encourages discussion and interaction.

Facilities – How will you be communicating with delegates? Is a projector required? Will you be using audiovisual display or linking to the web? No matter what you require Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) can provide the equipment and ensure someone is on hand at set up and save time.
