Nottingham Venues unveiled – new name launches “unrivalled portfolio of meeting & event spaces”

After decades of providing meetings, events and hotel stays, a collection of venues located across the University of Nottingham’s campuses has been rebranded as Nottingham Venues.

The rebrand brings the Orchard Hotel, the Jubilee Hotel & Conferences, Hugh Stewart Manor House, Campus Venues (formally known as Nottingham Conferences) and East Midlands Conference Centre under one roof.

“These unique venues have always been a part of the University but have now decided to stand alone without a management company due to the wealth of knowledge of the inhouse team,” explains general manager Tom Waldron-Lynch.

“We’re talking about ‘One Destination with Endless Possibilities’ because when you look at the offering, that is what truly awaits visitors and guests.”

The five venues provide customers with world class sporting facilities, global conferences, exhibitions, award nights or cater for a simpler everyday meeting.

Each venue has its own aesthetic, located in peaceful green grounds of the secluded university campus.

Tom continues: “The move provides us with the opportunity to take the knowledge and experience gained from the last 10 years and take the business into its next phase.

“The unique nature of our offering sets us apart from competitors which has seen us become a firm favourite of organisers of global conferences, team away days, overnight stays, and business meetings.

“Being part of the University gives us world-class facilities which has seen us host a variety of sporting teams from premier league football teams to cricket and netball. We are looking forward to growing the business and becoming the number one place in the East Midlands for meetings and events.”

Whilst the heritage of the sites is important, it is the future of the organisation as a beacon of sustainability and local employment that is driving the direction and growth of the business, according to marketing director Stephanie Moss-Pearce.

“We employ circa 180 people across our sites, and we are proud to be one of the larger employers in the city. We have plans to grow but as we do, we want to make sure we do that sustainably, both in terms of personnel but also with regards to our own impact on the planet

“Nottingham Venues will officially launch as a new brand with a garden party event in early July.”

What you can experience at Nottingham Venues:

  • Accommodation to suit every budget and need from student halls to four-star bedrooms.
  • Sustainably built buildings, locally sourced food, and electric charging points.
  • Endless food options from banqueting menus, delegate lunches, Bramleys Restaurant and Spokes Café.

The impressive East Midlands Conference Centre holds over 1,000 delegates with its very own AV team, conference theatre, exhibition space, banqueting suite, meeting spaces and networking space.
