Introducing Nottingham Venues: One destination, endless possibilities

July 18th, 2022

Following the news late last year that East Midlands Conferences Centre (EMCC) Ltd, would be undertaking a rebrand, from June 2022 it will be now known as Nottingham Venues.

The rebrand brings the various facilities under one roof after the hotels and conference centre spent nearly a decade under the De Vere Group, whilst the Nottingham Conferences team were part of the university.

Now, the East Midlands Conference Centre, Orchard and Jubilee hotels and the university conference facilities that make up the newly named Campus Venues, will sit under the unified brand.

The move has provided the opportunity to take the knowledge and experience gained from the last 10 years and take the business into its next phase

It boasts a wide portfolio of conference venues, meeting rooms, the David Ross Sports Village, hotels, cafes, and restaurants, all set within the beautiful parkland grounds of the university.

The unique nature of this offering sets it apart from competitors and has seen it become a firm favourite of organisers of global conferences, networking events, overnight stays, and business meetings.

To celebrate, a garden party was held on Friday 8 July to showcase the refurbished East Midlands Conference Centre, with guests including representatives from the university, local businesses, clients and suppliers.

Gathering in the East Midlands Conference Centre’s stunning grounds, they heard from general manager Tom Waldron-Lynch about their plans for a future driven by sustainability and the £2m refurbishment project completed just prior to the pandemic.

‘It has been a remarkable journey for Nottingham Venues and we’re now able to proudly and officially talk about “One Destination with Endless Possibilities”, said Tom.

‘We’re standing on our own, proud to be who we are, where we are. The name says it all. We’re very proud of our history and heritage and also our ownership in terms of the University of Nottingham and their fantastic support.

‘We have a fantastic heritage but also a hugely exciting future ahead of us, driven by sustainable practices and with a focus on creating local jobs, local partnerships and driving the economy in the city, the county and across the region.
