The reasons organisers and meeting bookers need UK event space with accommodation are varied. For many people, arranging a meeting with overnight accommodation is an effective way to keep costs down. This is because hotels and venues can offer a 24-hour delegate rate. This will include guest rooms and breakfast as well as the meeting room hire, refreshments during the day and lunch time meals.
UK event space with accommodation is also a good option when you have delegates travelling from across the country. They can arrive the afternoon before the big event, check-in to the hotel and relax in the evening. This means they wake in morning feeling relaxed and raring to go. Plus you know they will arrive on time to your event as they won’t be caught out in any traffic delays! These 24-hour delegate packages are an excellent idea for welcoming special guest speakers to your conference too. Or maybe it’s a priority for your board members to have time before or after a meeting. In these situations, event spaces with accommodation are ideal; executives can talk, plan and rehearse before delegates arrive or even assess the conference after everyone has left.
And of course, there are occasions when you want a venue or hotel to host your event and accommodate your colleagues as part of an incentive or reward package too. At this time of year, you may be planning for a conference during the day and a Christmas party in the evening so a UK event space with accomodation is perfect for these events.
