Studio 36: Butlins' new star
Venues play a very important part for every conference or event. Having recently relaunched its conference and events offering, Butlin’s has a variety of venues at all three resorts - Bognor Regis, Skegness and Minehead - to host the perfect conference or event.
Butlins has seen a lot of change since relaunching its proposition, which is now centred around entertaining conference venues. There’s a new team, a new creative approach, and a new venue: Studio 36.
This new space is available at all three resorts and aims to provide the perfect blank canvas to organisers. Studio 36 can host up to 1,600 delegates in a variety of seating arrangements including theatre, cabaret style and gala dinners.
As Studio 36 regularly showcases live entertainment and performances, it’s equipped with high quality AV, lighting and sound systems. The new venue aims to impress organisers and delegates, giving flexibility to personalise the space to suit each specific conference or event.
All three resorts offer everything all in one place. As well as Studio 36 there’s plenty of other showstopping spaces and venues. These include dedicated Conference Centres, a range of venues including Centre Stage and a variety of restaurants that can be used for breakouts alongside the venues. There’s everything from top sports and leisure facilities and fairgrounds. From Go Karts and Dodgems to bars with bowling and American pool. Food and drink play a huge part in any conference and with a revamped offering alongside a range of accommodation, Butlin’s is the ultimate location to host an unforgettable event.
Having recently hosted its first conference since the relaunch, Studio 36 played host to 200 delegates as the main plenary with six theatre style break out spaces created within the venue. There were also coffee stations and poser tables to network. The Centre Stage venue hosted pre-dinner drinks and Gala Dinner followed by an awards ceremony with Butlin’s own entertainment performing for delegates.
Nick Tipper, head of Butlin’s Conferences and Events, said “Ever since relaunching our proposition we were confident Studio 36 would be a huge attraction to prospective clients and it didn’t disappoint in our first conference back. Seeing delegates happy and engaged was brilliant. They loved every moment including plenary and breakout sessions in Studio 36 followed by a superb Gala Dinner and spectacular entertainment in our Centre Stage venue. Studio 36 is the perfect space to be the key venue for any conference of any size. It’s an amazing space that will host lots of fantastic events in the coming months.”
Following a recent conference, the organisers said: “Studio 36 is game changing. It’s a fabulous facility and the temperature was well controlled, the volume appropriate, the sight lines to the stage great and the "silent disco" format to hold the breakout talks in the same area was inspired.”
