The venue itself holds an ‘excellent’ rating from BREEAM, making it the most sustainable venue of its kind in the UK. It’s on-site energy centre converts household food and garden waste into hydrogen gas, which in turn powers the venue and two on-site hotels. However, the real conference delivery is down to the dedicated team of experts in-house who help make the event a reality.

P&J Live’s team are extremely people focussed, placing great importance on an excellent client customer journey every time.

Conference organisers enjoy a seamless experience from sales to event planning and delivery, as well as post event. Each client is provided with a dedicated core contact and event manager that consider every detail, eradicating the inconvenience of communicating with multiple individuals. The team very much believes in making small things matter to enable big things to happen.

The venue offers a ‘one-stop shop’ solution, housing an in-house team of experts that includes AV and IT, exhibition services, catering and marketing services all under one roof. This enables the venue to offer a unique and flexible service to organisers without them having to contract a multitude of external third parties. Inclusive packages are offered to encompass each of these service areas, no matter which size of conference space is hired.

A dedicated team of in-house technical production experts is provided for the entirety of the conference, creating bespoke ambiances through lighting and sound to deliver an immersive experience to capture and engage delegates. Fully integrated technologies and a huge stock of in-house technical equipment means that there is often little requirement for a build day. Everything from microphones to lecterns and bespoke light rigging are supplied preventing additional hire costs. Each space benefits from integrated touch-screen technology to control lighting, blinds, projector screens and sound.
