Coventry and Warwickshire offers a range of venues with everything from modern to historical and well-connected to tranquil.
Coventry and Warwickshire are riding the wave of a series of major international events, underlining its reputation as an established conference, business, and event destination. The region’s conference bureau, Conference Coventry and Warwickshire, provides a free event enquiry service and has seen great success in driving national and international business to the region – maintaining a regular presence at key trade shows such as The Meetings Show and CHS.
In the heart of England, Coventry and Warwickshire is one of the best-connected regions in the country, with 75% of the country’s population within a three-hour reach. Coventry is less than one hour from London by train and only 20 minutes from Birmingham by train, which has led to the flourishing of event bookings in the area.
From the largest venue, which can host around 7,000 delegates in its exhibition hall to holding a meeting in a medieval castle; Coventry and Warwickshire is a thriving hub of business and culture. Combining
the historically significant architecture and industry of Coventry, with the rural splendour of rural Warwickshire, the region offers an experience that is unique, focused, and innovative.
High-quality, modern, and well-connected venues span the county – from North Warwickshire to Leamington Spa, and down to idyllic Stratford-upon-Avon in the south of the county. Enjoy the rolling countryside and bring some peace and tranquillity to your event with beautiful views and unique venues.
Coventry is an appetising destination for foodies, with Warwickshire boasting 12 Michelin-star-winning restaurants – and the range in the region is continuing to grow. Paul Jones, Managing Director of Conference Coventry and Warwickshire, said: “It’s been an incredibly exciting past few years for our region and we are confident that the benefits brought by recent major events have further strengthened our offering for event organisers. We’ve always been a vibrant destination rich in history, heritage, and culture, with huge diversity from the city of Coventry to the surrounding rural towns.
Despite the challenges facing the sector, we are continuing to see investment in business events across the region.
“We’re proud to be home to many large sectors including automotive, advanced manufacturing and engineering – but also providing a launch pad in the UK for sectors such as autonomous vehicles and game design, with Leamington Spa becoming known as ‘Silicon Spa’ with the gaming industry booming in the town. The region already has a huge amount to offer event organisers and we’re very excited about how we are continuing to develop that offering.”
