Bristol is home to some fantastic conference venues, from huge centres to unique conference rooms. Navigating the booking process for such a corporate event can often feel nightmarish. It doesn't have to. With this guide, you'll be impressing your colleagues and industry buddies in no time at all.
Getting there, getting out
Bristol is a wonderful place to hold a conference. It has excellent transport links, including the Bristol Temple Meads railway station, and the M32 and M4 motorways. The city has a number of conference centres and business hotels, including the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel, the Novotel and the Holiday Inn.
The most important aspect of a conference is the speakers. Make sure that your talks are interesting and of interest to all attendees. Whether you're arranging a conference or a training day, you can expect a lot of big names to be thrown around. The biggest conference venues in Bristol are likely to be the hotels, or the Queen's Building, which is the central conference centre at Bristol University. You'll want a conference centre that's close to the roads and public transport, and a venue that's easy to find.
Food and drink
A conference can go on for a long time, and it's important to plan enough food and drink for everyone, across the duration of the conference. Dining facilities can be separated into different dining styles, which will serve a large range of tastes and requirements. Conferences generally include a dinner and a breakfast buffet and can be expanded to include lunch, afternoon tea and refreshments.
Good conference catering provides another opportunity for delegates to meet, relax and learn more about one another. It's a chance to step outside the conference rooms, put the business cards away, and share a drink and a meal with like-minded people.
