The Slate

For your West Midlands meetings and events, The Slate is a fantastic lakeside venue on the University of Warwick campus in Coventry with capacity for 400 guests. With exclusive use, this is definitely one to impress for conferences, product launches, exhibitions, awards ceremonies, banquets, and corporate drinks receptions.

What you get at The Slate is contemporary architecture, a waterside balcony, and 650sq m of pillar free space – a blank canvas where anything is possible; theme it, dress it, brand it, own it. Make it yours. As a whole the venue holds 400 people theatre style, as exhibition space, for a champagne reception, or banquet. A moveable wall gives you two spaces to play with, one with a maximum capacity of 400 standing and 300 seated, the other with room for 200 standing and 245 in theatre style. The possibilities are endless – receptions, registrations, break outs, refreshments…

The Slate has integrated state-of-the-art AV with multiple screens and top-notch acoustics, and of course, superfast wifi. A full height glass wall runs the length of the building, letting natural light pour in, but there are black-out blinds should you need them. Reinforced flooring to hold two 4x4s means even car launches aren’t a problem.

You’ll have unlimited refreshments and menus tailored to suit your event, there’s access to leisure facilities and outdoor spaces. A stone’s throw away are 358 hotel-style bedrooms, onsite parking is gratis, with The Slate easily reached from major routes.
