Leading conference, training and leisure venue Wyboston Lakes Resort has been lauded once again as a prominent industry innovator by being for shortlisted for the CHS Awards in the category Best Independent Venue/Hotel Residential & Non-Residential.
The CHS Awards recognises specific elements of venues, rather than the entire property, providing a level playing field for all entrants, irrespective of whether they are a national chain or a small independent venue. Director of Marketing, Louisa Watson says: “I am really delighted that the team at Wyboston Lakes Resort have been recognised at the CHS Awards this year. With all the investment made in our venue over the last 12 months, this feels really good; 2019 is turning out to be a great year for the Wyboston Lakes team.” The winners of the CHS Awards will be announced at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on Thursday 6 June.
While Wyboston Lakes Resort has been established for many years as the UK’s largest independently owned single site specialist venue, the quality of its facilities and overall services has been recently and consistently enhanced through a comprehensive multi million investment programme. Its two-residential conference and training venues, the Woodlands Event Centre and the Willows Training Centre, have been extensively improved to enable the company to offer a uniquely wide choice of facilities, services and delegate packages for conferences, meetings and training events.
The Woodlands Event Centre has completed a £3m investment, creating a stylish and inspiring event centre for now and for the future. It’s fully equipped with the facilities and technology to meet the needs of the latest generation of delegates and event organisers and has the capacity and flexibility to suit every type of event and the latest event trends.Equipped with the latest Audio-Visual technology, the venue provides inspirational meeting areas, including a main conference room that seats 620 delegates’ theatre style or 380 cabaret style, with creative flair and movable walls to expand event options.
An exciting range of food options, including the Mediterranean inspired Olive Restaurant and the informal Cedar Bar, have also been created. Providing a modern twist on the traditional servery, the new Food Market provides a variety of international street food dishes.
Users of both venues benefit from sector leading 1.3 GB broadband network, believed to be the most powerful available in any specialist conference venue in the UK. The improved broadband facility has brought a completely reliable Wi-Fi service in all working, residential and rest areas, which is free to all conference clients and delegates.
