The success of a conference majorly depends upon meticulous planning and the choice of the conference venue. Hotels, special conference halls, banquet halls have for long monopolized the hosting of conferences. But, of late, university campuses have become rather unlikely but extremely popular choices for conference hosting. This is mainly because universities are normally sprawling, green and have plenty of spaces available to accommodate tens or hundreds of people. In-house dining hall, accommodation, latest technology facilities and ample parking space are the other benefits. It is therefore not surprising that amongst the popular conference venues in Bradford, universities stand out because of their obvious advantages.
Bradford University’s Heaton Mount conference venue has become one of the most favoured conference venues in Bradford or as a spokesperson for the university puts it, it is ‘Bradford’s best kept secret’! Heaton Mount is situated within Bradford’s university’s School of Management which is famous for its Doctorate in Business Administration
He further elaborates, ‘It combines the old world charms of an Italianate mansion with all the modern amenities and facilities required for a top notch conferencing venue. Lecture theatres, training rooms and meeting areas, all equipped with the latest and state-of-the art technology amenities like internet, audio-visual equipment etc. are some of the facilities provided by http://www.bradford.ac.uk/management/heatonmount
venue. Ample outdoor space for various team building exercises along with indoor as well as outdoor catering makes it an outstanding conference venue amongst all conference venues in Bradford’.
He continues, ‘Most campus conference venues in Bradford
are surrounded by lush, natural beauty and provide a serene atmosphere. Many have cottages which can accommodate families and give a wonderful opportunity to delegates to bring along their families’.
