Heart of England Conference & Event Centre

An unbeatable and easily reached venue set in 160 acres of countryside with woodland, ponds, lakes and jetties; a hot spot for weddings and private celebrations and for corporate events of all kinds, from product launches, awards ceremonies, and conferences, to receptions, training sessions and board meetings for 2- 650 people. If you’re looking to hold a memorable team building or corporate fun day, this is the place for you.

The 10 flexible event rooms are air conditioned with complimentary wifi and come fully equipped with state of the art audiovisual equipment and lighting. There’s plenty of breakout space and an events team with unrivalled experience in delivering exactly what you want – plus technicians, well reputed on-site caterers – and a warehouse full of props – if you want 6ft gold statues, that’s what you shall have!

The main events suite, the Birchley accommodates up to 650 guests in theatre style, 350 in cabaret layout, or 600 for a reception - superb for larger conferences, exhibitions, product launches and banquets! This suite can be split into three smaller spaces. The Chestnut Suite has capacity for up to 100 delegates in theatre style and for a standing reception, or 72 in cabaret arrangement. The adjoining Beach Suite provides excellent breakout space or can be used for smaller meetings for up to 9 executives. The Willow Suite is also ideal for smaller events, seating 16 for a dinner or a board meeting, whilst the adjoining Pine Suite can host 32 people seated or 60 standing.

A unique spot for more intimate meetings is the moveable Cedar Suite – site it where you wish – perhaps next to the lake for a focused and inspired pow wow. With gorgeous views over the grounds and lake, the huge, light and airy Marquee has capacity for 500 guests in theatre style, 380 in cabaret layout, a reception for 600 or dinner for 500. Team Building really comes into its own here, with a dedicated crew and an impressive collection of indoor and outdoor activity equipment; how about quad trekking, archery, 4x4 driving, raft building, giant inflatables, laser clay shooting … and heaps more!

Select catering to suit your budget, or opt for the Quicken Tree Bar and Grill with a range of menus from a la carte to pizzas; dine alfresco on the terrace and soak up the far reaching views of the glorious Warwickshire countryside. Book a private dining room for business lunches and dinners; perhaps make use of the 9 sumptuous boutique style bedrooms in the 4* 16th century farmhouse hotel. They also have 5 shepherd huts with ensuite bathrooms including shower, 2 x glamping pods, a log cabin and a brand new dome that sleeps 4.

The Heart of England Conference & Events Centre has heaps of free parking and is located just outside of Meriden in Warwickshire, only 8 miles from the M6, M42 and A45 and 30 minutes from the M1 or M40. Birmingham train station and Birmingham international Airport are both 10 minutes away.
