Cotswold Conference Centre named best in the country
Cotswold Conference Centre has been named as the country’s best business tourism venue by industry experts VisitEngland.
The conference, training and teambuilding centre, between Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon, won Gold in the Business Tourism category of the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2012.
The national awards celebrate the best tourism venues, businesses and visitor attractions in the country and this year saw a record 392 applications. Winners were selected for their use of best practice, quality and innovation throughout the business and for helping raise standards across the industry.
Cotswold Conference Centre topped a Business Tourism Award short-list which included Ribby Hall Business & Conference Suite, in Preston, Manchester’s Lowry Hotel and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
The awards ceremony was held at the Athena in Leicester on Tuesday and the success marks the fourth Gold award that Cotswold Conference Centre has won so far in 2012.
Richard Howdle, Operations Manager of Cotswold Conference Centre, said: “We’ve won regional awards, customer service awards and environmental business awards this year but there’s no doubt that this national recognition tops it all.
“It isn’t just that we were short-listed alongside some great venues which makes winning so special, but also the fact that it comes from VisitEngland makes it very satisfying.
“To have an organisation that works with so many great venues across the country choose us as the winner is a fantastic reflection of our performance and a wonderful boost for the whole team.”
Cotswold Conference Centre’s other Gold awards this year include the VenueVerdict Awards for customer service in January, the Cotswold Tourism Awards in March and also the Green Tourism Business Scheme, in April.
Cotswold Conference Centre is a modern venue based on the 380-acre Farncombe Estate, five minutes from the picturesque town of Broadway and just half-an-hour from Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon.
