The number of people going to Christmas parties at Nottingham Conference Centre has increased by 63 per cent in the past year.
The venue, based at Nottingham Trent University’s iconic Newton and Arkwright buildings in Nottingham city centre, has 1,421 covers booked for Christmas 2013 compared to 871 last year.
Nottingham Conference Centre began hosting Christmas parties only a year ago and Jillian Miles, conference and events operations manager at the centre, says the initial results are very encouraging.
“We’re really pleased to already have a positive response to our Christmas parties service and expect to build on these numbers going forward,” she said.
“We’re generally a 9am to 5pm conference centre, and have really only responded to the Christmas market through demand.
“More and more people are recognising Nottingham Conference Centre as a quality venue which hosts a variety of events in addition to the formal, national conferences which we have an existing reputation for.
“And the combination of our city centre location, historic buildings and modern facilities makes us an attractive venue for a Christmas works do and we’re keen to increase our market share in this area going forward.”
