About Us

Welcome to Nottingham Conferences

Nottingham Conferences offers three outstanding conference venues each featuring a flexible range of facilities for meetings, conferences and events. Each venue is fully supported with audio visual technology, excellent food and a dedicated support team and is within easy access to the main transport links by road (M1), rail (Midland Mainline) or air (East Midlands Airport). Based at one of the world's leading universities, Nottingham Conferences offers the additional benefits of award-winning campuses that offer the perfect surroundings for delegates and visitors. The De Vere Venues East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel are also available all year round, establishing the university further as one of the UK's leading facilities for conferences, meetings and events.

Nottingham Conferences' venues are based within easy access of Nottingham, at the heart of England and offering a wide range of restaurants, shops, hotels and sport and leisure facilities. Home to many leading UK companies, including Boots, Capital One and Experian, Nottingham was ranked sixth recently in the UKCMS by event organisers looking for a venue location.

Nottingham Conferences represents three conference venues, based at The University of Nottingham; Jubilee Campus, University Park and Sutton Bonington.

Jubilee Campus offers award-winning architecture and a stunning waterside setting. Five separate lecture theatres seat between 100 and 488 and over 20 additional smaller flat-floored areas offer space for break-out rooms and reception areas. Two adjacent halls offer en-suite accommodation for up to 600 guests and the central catering Atrium provides a light and airy space for refreshments. Opened in September 1999 by Her Majesty the Queen, Jubilee Campus is built on reclaimed land and its green credentials are impeccable. In 2008, three new landmark buildings and a 60m high steel structure ‘Aspire' - the tallest piece of public artwork in the UK - were completed.

University Park is beautifully placed within 330 acres of landscaped parkland. Accommodation for up to 3000 delegates is available in vacation times in 12 individual halls of residence, each providing their own bars and dining rooms on-site. A wide selection of meeting rooms is available both within the halls and in university teaching buildings; ranging from modern tiered lecture theatres and teaching laboratories to traditional oak panelled rooms. Established since 1929, University Park is widely regarded as one of the largest and most attractive campuses in the U.K. and is the only university campus to have achieved the Civic Trust Green Flag Award every year since 2003.

Sutton Bonington is located 10 miles south of University Park campus, on the border of Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire in the heart of the countryside. This 100 acre campus is amply equipped with its own state-of-the-art lecture theatres seating up to 400, alongside en-suite self-catering accommodation for 94 and a brand new sports centre. Enjoying beautifully-landscaped surroundings, at Sutton Bonington you will find an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Yet only minutes away from the M1, junction 24 and East Midlands Airport.

As an AGM venue this worked really well. Our registrars, Equinity, felt that in terms of flow it was one of the best they had worked at themselves... Tesco Stores Limited
