Great Britain offers a huge amount of choice for the Conference & Incentive market. We recommend our top 5 cities for events in 2013, so, in no particular order:
Scotland’s beautiful capital is still a firm favourite with conference organisers. In 2013 the EICC opens a 1,600m2 multi-purpose extension which can accommodate 2,000 delegates, while its neighbour, the 5* Sheraton, has just completed an extensive refurbishment. The city and surrounding countryside offer plenty of team building options, including innovative GPS city treasure hunts and Highland Games at stunning stately homes like Dundas Castle.
ACC Liverpool, the only directly interconnected arena and convention centre in Europe, is a uniquely flexible venue which had enjoyed huge success since it opened in 2008. A Beatles- themed tour of the city is a must, while the three Civic Halls provide historic space for gala dinners and award ceremonies.
Steeped in history yet defined by innovation, Glasgow’s breathtaking architecture and warm, welcoming embrace make it an ideal destination for incentive travel and conferences. The Glasgow Science Centre provides fantastic space for events and team building activities.
London boasts many world-famous landmarks, and incentive groups will delight in some of those televised during the Olympic Games such as Buckingham Palace and Horseguard’s Parade. ExCeL provides flexible conference space while The Natural History Museum has won many awards as an events venue.
A vibrant, energetic and fun city, Newcastle has bountiful opportunities for shopping and cultural events.The Sage Gateshead, designed by Sir Norman Foster, is one of Europe’s most dramatic urban settings for conferences while the city centre provides a great setting for fun team building events like Espionage.
