Warwick Conferences Strike Gold at Industry Awards

ScarmanWarwick Conferences has added to its already heaving awards cabinet after once again receiving recognition at this year’s prestigious Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Awards.

The University of Warwick-based training and conference venue bought home two golds and a silver at the awards, dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the meetings and conference industry.

This is the 17th time in the awards’ 22 year history the venue has taken home the gold award for Best Academic Venue.

Warwick Conferences also won gold in the Best Value for Money group, and was presented silver in the Best UK Management Training Centre category.

The M&IT Awards are voted for by conference organisers and the readers of M&IT, the conference industry’s leading publication.

These latest accolades are a tremendous boost for Warwick Conferences and cement its reputation as truly world-class facility, drawing the attention of delegates from around the globe.

Rachael Bartlett, head of sales and marketing at Warwick Conferences said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have once again come away from this year’s ceremony with an award in every category for which we qualified. This is a fabulous result and credit is due to everyone who has worked so hard to make Warwick Conferences the world-class venue it is.

“To bring home gold for Best Academic Venue for the 17th time in 22 years is absolutely delightful and a huge compliment about the service and facilities we provide. That the awards are the result of votes cast by event organisers, the very people who use facilities like ours, is all the more gratifying. It’s the most credible endorsement a business could wish for.

“The industry as a whole has faced a lean couple of years, but the fact that we have thrived is a testament to our staff’s hard work, professionalism and passion for making Warwick Conferences a genuine leader in our industry.

This year’s prestigious black tie event, took place on Monday 5th March at the Westminster Park Plaza, and was hosted by popular BBC news presenter Kate Silverton.
