This September, the Center Parcs team will be heading to the M&IT Awards ceremony, one of the biggest events in the meetings and events calendar. These awards shine a spotlight on the stars of the events industry, with 21 categories from Best UK Hotel to Best Technology Provider. This award recognises venues that stand outside the traditional hotel or conference centre boxes, and instead offer something a little different.
The Center Parcs Conferences & Events team have set our sights on category 14, the ‘Best UK Unusual Venue’ award, and we’re going for gold.
Ten reasons why you should vote for Center Parcs Conferences & Events
as the ‘Best UK Unusual Venue’
1. Our stunning forest setting
The benefits of spending time in the great outdoors are well-researched, and if you’re looking for a venue where delegates will feel their very best then look no further. Escaping the office and immersing themselves in nature will help them to feel happier and healthier, more creative and more productive.
2. Unforgettable team building activities
No one does team building quite like Center Parcs. With up to 200 indoor, outdoor and watersports activities to choose from, our team building activities are designed to bring out the best in people, developing communication skills, teamwork and trust.
3. Premium events space
Our two conference venues, Woburn Forest and Sherwood Forest, both offer a variety of high-quality event spaces, including conference space, function rooms, seminar rooms and meeting spaces – all in the heart of the beautiful forest.
4. Chance to reconnect
One of the most important parts of any event is the opportunity for teams to spend time together outside of their usual office environment, and the forest at Center Parcs offers an ideal environment for delegates to reconnect, reset and strengthen those all-important working relationships.
5. Luxury woodland accommodation
For accommodation with a difference, discover our range of luxury lodges deep in the forest. From stylish Woodland Lodges to spectacular Treehouses and everything in between, delegates can wake up to the sound of birdsong, watch wildlife through the window and discover a whole new level of relaxation.
6. Space to recharge and relax
Conferences offer a wonderful opportunity to reward hardworking teams, and Center Parcs is the perfect place to do just that. Delegates can enjoy a relaxing spa session in our award-winning Aqua Sana Spa, try a range of fun activities together or simply spend free time wandering our miles of woodland trails.
7. A wide variety of dining options
With a delicious variety of catering options in The Venue as well as a range of onsite restaurants offering cuisines from across the globe, you’re sure to find something to tempt your tastebuds.
8. Everything you need, all in one place
One of the things that truly sets Center Parcs Conferences & Events apart is having a wide variety of facilities all in one place. With event space, accommodation, activities, restaurants and shops all just a short walk or cycle away, delegates can step into the forest and truly switch off from the outside world.
9. Tailor-made events packages
Delivering bespoke events is what we do best. Your teams are unique, so why should your event be any different? We’ll work with you to create a bespoke package to meet your needs and help you to deliver a truly unique, unforgettable event.
10. A personal touch
Center Parcs service is second to none, and our corporate events are no different. Our famously friendly team will always go the extra mile for our guests and delegates, so you can relax knowing you’re in the best possible hands.
