Residential training venues and Planning Checklist


I have recently volunteered to research the options for running a weekend conference with in the Thames Valley area (Herts, Beds and Bucks etc) Can anyone suggest a list of suitable venues. We are a charity so cost is a fact and we would expect 100 to 200 delegates. Obviously there are commerical conference providers but do large companies or stat agencies have there own venues that we could borrow or hire ?

Secondly, does any one have a checklist for planning such an event?

many thanks

  1. Excellent guide / checklist for training venues
    I have a copy of an excellent article that sounds ‘just the ticket’! It dates back to November 1999 and was produced in the Training section of Personnel Today. The e-mail address at the top of the article is [email protected] – I don’t know whether this address still applies. Otherwise, e-mail me on [email protected] if you want a copy.

  2. Try a Venue Finder
    There are a number of organisations that will find you a venue. They usually get a commission from the hotel/conference centre so there is no charge to you. You just give your price guidelines and preferred locations. The other option would be to try one of the universities/colleges at a convenient location for you. Most have facilities they rent out.
    On the matter of a checklist, please let me have a fax number and I will fax you something.
