Wyboston Lakes Resort secures major event bookings despite roadmap delays
Wyboston Lakes Resort in Bedfordshire has confirmed a series of major bookings for conferences and events from July and August onwards.
The resort’s Woodlands Event Centre will host a range of international brands, associations, consumer, and corporate organisations including Spa Life, trade association HBAA and Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine. All these events have been rescheduled because of the recent four-week delay to the government’s roadmap for lifting restrictions on activities.
The venue also confirmed it has secured several hundred thousand pounds of event bookings for global pharmaceutical brands due to take place in the autumn.
The first event to take place at the conference, training and leisure complex was the sold-out Utopia 2021, a Doctor Who annual convention organised by Fantom Events, which was held from 9-11 July.
Steve Jones, managing director of Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “It is great to see the UK events industry reopening. We are really looking forward to welcoming these events to Wyboston Lakes Resort in the coming months.”
Spa Life International UK Convention will take place on 2-3 August. Mike Fitch (pictured), director of Spa Life International, said they are expecting up to 250 delegates from the spa and wellness industry for the event in accordance with the latest government Covid-19 guidelines: “We chose Wyboston Lakes Resort because of the high-quality facilities and excellent customer service we have experienced at previous events. It is also a very Covid-secure venue having hosted training for the emergency services during the pandemic."
The HBAA Annual Forum and Dinner will gather the meeting, events, and accommodation industry’s association’s members on 17 September, preceded by a charity golf day at Wyboston Lakes Resort’s course on the day before.
The Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Agency Forum on 25 October will bring together around 60 event organisers from agencies with up to 30 venues and destination representatives for two days of networking, one-to-one meetings, and teambuilding activities.
