Our Venues

Start the conversation...

Conferences and exhibitions are all about conversation. In Bournemouth, the conversation can happen anywhere.

We’ve got meeting spaces, relaxed spaces and outdoor spaces that bring people together in all kinds of ways to get them talking about the things that matter – and changing them for the better.

Bournemouth delegates can’t help but be buoyed up by the inspiration and creativity that comes from being in the heart of one of the most innovative communities in the UK. The destination is the UK’s fastest growing digital economy and one of only two places in the country where the population is actually getting younger.

Clients come to our Bournemouth venues to soak up the inescapable coastal vibe – smart, cool and evocative – that persuades bright young start-ups and huge corporate businesses to make Bournemouth their home. It’s the perfect place to bring like-minded professionals together and make good things happen.

The complete delegate experience... and then some

Our teams are experts in event planning and design, coordination, operations, security, staffing and hospitality.

You’ll have your own event co-ordinator to manage your project and make sure everything goes to plan – with your own hospitality expert to make the annual gala dinner more special than you could have imagined. We also have a full production crew working on site to help with the build. Plus our own retail cafés and bars throughout the venues.

Public safety top of the agenda

Leveraging our unique venue and coastal destination to deliver a seamless, safe and rewarding delegate experience, we continue to deliver world-class conferences, exhibitions and hospitality events, with public safety top of the agenda.

According to the latest industry standard for our sector, we have incorporated even more stringent venue-related, health and safety standards and guidelines into our security processes.

Meeting spaces

Meeting spaces are a vital component of any major event and our venues give you plenty of choice.

Private and open plan areas can be arranged just the way you want – as theatres, banqueting spaces, classrooms, boardrooms, press and organiser offices, with access to dedicated catering and bar services.

With everything branded, booked out, signposted and arranged ready for a brilliant few days at conference. You can run fringe meetings, small exhibitions and workshops, alongside your conference or exhibition, and still find plenty of room for a drinks reception and fabulous gala dinner.

If all you need is a convenient place to hold an emergency meeting or get together for regular project reviews, we’ve got everything you need – from informal lounges to exclusive boardroom suites.

The same technical and operations crews who build, manage and operate large events will work with you to shape a bespoke environment to make sure everything runs smoothly. Discover more about business meetings.


Let's eat

Business events are about the discovery, discussion and debate of ideas and strategies that shape the future, and creating opportunities for that to happen anywhere. It makes the social side of events as important to get right as the formal. A chance meeting or renewed acquaintance over coffee or dinner could spark an idea that changes lives, stop a crisis in its tracks or produce the next big thing.

Ice breakers, deal makers and table talk are all about food, service, ambience and buzz. The more wow factor you put in, the more wow
and engagement you’ll get back from your delegates.

Every day, we’re serving drinks and light refreshments to speakers, exhibitors and delegates from our Terrace bars, cafés and carts. And every event brings with it a new challenge to test our hospitality team and show just how much we bring to the party.

Exciting and original menu design, with fine ingredients chosen for flavour, looks, quality and sustainability. Created with passion. Served with style. Discover more about our catering and hospitality services.
