Whittlebury Park invests in conference and events
Whittlebury Park, a venue designed for the meetings and events industry, has announced its £1m investment for its conference and event spaces.
The project will be led by Monica Hira from Hira Hospitality Interiors, who has worked with the team at Whittlebury to design the new spaces.
Phase one of the project will commence from 11 November 2019 and will include new room concepts including an ‘inside, outside’ space, contemporary corridor seating and a new coffee station.
Whittlebury Park’s facilities will include 19 training and meeting rooms and 15 syndicate rooms. The new facilities will be upgraded to introduce modern fixtures and new colour schemes. It can also host small meetings for 20 people or larger conferences for 500 people.
During November, an additional £40k investment in SHY ZIP system blackout blinds will also be installed in Whittlebury’s 1905 Suite. This personalisation aims to improve the output of its guests’ meetings.
Hira said: “I am delighted to be collaborating with Whittlebury Park on this project. This will be a remarkable transformation and will include a diverse range of ideas from new Biophilic flooring to the quirky indoor treehouse!
“We have also included comfortable and stylish furniture along with new lighting concepts. We want to ensure that delegates have a memorable and unique experience at Whittlebury and so it was important for the designs to make a lasting impact.”
Marc Webster, commercial director, Whittlebury Park, said: “The aim of this significant investment project is to give our clients what they have told us they want from a meeting space, as well as responding to industry trends.
“We understand that conference facilities need to progress with changing needs and the new look and feel of the spaces will certainly achieve this.
“We are paying close attention to the small details as well as the overall visual appeal of the rooms and we look forward to welcoming new and existing guests back to experience the difference.”
