Wyboston Lakes Resort’s Woodlands Event Centre has been voted Best Conference Venue for 450 to 1,100 people theatre style at the prestigious Conference Awards 2020.
A panel of industry expert judges awarded the honour to the venue, ahead of many famous venues that were also on the shortlist for this coveted title.
This is the second major success in recent weeks for the Bedfordshire venue. In late October, it reinforced its status as a leading UK conference venue by winning the award for Best Mid-Sized Meeting Space at the hospitality industry’s CHS Awards.
The Woodlands Event Centre was transformed by a £3m redevelopment programme which was completed in 2019, designed to ensure it meets the needs of event organisers and delegates for many years to come.
Louisa Watson, director of marketing at Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “I am so chuffed with this. We’ve entered these awards for seven years and following all the spectacular work on the venue, we’ve won at last. To win two major awards in 2020 is wonderfully uplifting – amazing!”
The Woodlands Event Centre is one of two major venues at the 380-acre resort, alongside the Willows Training Centre which was extensively refurbished early this year. There is also a four-star hotel, a spa and golf course. The Waterfront Hotel has 103 en-suite bedrooms, an award-winning restaurant, and serviced office space is available on the same site.
The resort has recently launched a hybrid – live and virtual – event solution, which enables organisers to host live events through a virtual platform and with up to 30 guests in person at the venue, as permitted by government guidelines. The resort has also been certified as a COVID-secure venue following accreditations from the AA, the Meetings Industry Association and Quality in Tourism.
Centrally located close to the A1, M1 and A421 road networks and local railway links, Wyboston Lakes Resort is just 40 minutes by train from London and 45 minutes to Luton and Stansted Airport, and can be contacted on 0333 7007 666.
