One of the most important things about holding a conference is the venue. You need to make sure it caters specifically for what you need at a competitive price.
Not only that, but the surroundings are also an important factor to consider for your conference guests. Below are five great cities with fantastic conference facilities and wonderful surroundings.
FS-EM offers an abundance of conference facilities throughout London. Whether you’re looking for a small room for an hour or a large space for the weekend, FS-EM are there to help you find exactly what you need.
The capital city of England is a city of contrasts; it is steeped in history yet is a forerunner in contemporary theatre, fashion and art. As well as all the shops there are the amazing sights of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, to name a few. Conference guests certainly won’t be stuck for something to do!
With on-site technical support, internet access, and administrative support, the Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue has a lot to offer. The cost of tea, coffee and biscuits is included in the price as well, so you and your guests can help yourself to a continuous supply of them all!
This centre is also based in a brilliant location; minutes from Waverly train station and in the heart of the old city, the Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue is just off the famous Royal Mile. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and is rich in history, including a majestic castle and many cobbled streets.
Not only does this site have fantastic facilities but it is also perfectly located resulting in it being a great city to host your conference. For finding accommodation for guests, consider renting a large house outside the city that can sleep 10-20 people, this is awesome for networking.
The Royal Armouries in Leeds is a museum that also caters for conferences. It offers white boards, flip charts and internet access among other things. The staff are very friendly and aim to help you in every way they can, and the best thing is that the prices are very reasonable.

Chancellors Hotel, situated just 3 miles from central Manchester, is another great conference location. It has 12 rooms, varying from modern to more traditional, with internet access available.
Another benefit of Chancellors Hotel is the onsite accommodation. Guests don’t have to travel far to get to their rooms and can relax within the same building.
The city of Manchester itself has a buzzing and exciting atmosphere. With a large shopping centre, a great nightlife, and many events and activities happening all the time, you will never be bored!
With many venues diverse in style and size Conference Worcestershire are there to help you find the ideal location. From small quirky venues, to team building exercises and large stately homes, there is something for everyone.
