Plan an Event in Bristol
Bristol really does have something for all conference and business event organisers, regardless of size, origin of delegates and requirements. As well as having some fantastic hotels and traditional conference venues, we are also crammed with more unique and unusual event spaces.
The city is one of the UK’s best destinations for conferences, offering great access to international delegates through Bristol Airport’s excellent route network and via train from most major UK cities. The connectivity through road, rail and air make Bristol a great choice.
It can sometimes be more convenient and easier to manage everyone being in one venue. Hotels can offer a great solution and because of the creativity and professionalism of those involved, they can ensure your delegates have a great experience. This can be anything from the welcome your guests receive to the snacks they have during the day or breaks. Many venues offer quirky sweet jars or specially designed brain food nibbles to ensure delegates stay on track.
Some of our more unusual venues might raise a few eyebrows, but they are all able to deliver professional and well managed events to ensure your conference or meeting go without a hitch.
We understand that larger events involve more planning and the Destination Bristol team can help with every aspect of event planning from headquarters venues, to delegate accommodation to gala dinners and team building activities. These services are all provided free of charge to you.
And while smaller meetings and events can sometimes be simpler to arrange, they are by no means less important and so our impartial and expert advice can help ensure you find the right venue to suit your needs, whether its car parking, being close to the train station, easy access from the airport or free Wi-Fi.
The Destination Bristol conference team are an expert group of former venue managers and event organisers and so can offer impartial and qualified advice to help you plan your event. They know each of the venues and so are able to answer questions thoroughly. We can help find you a venue, source bedrooms for your delegates (and provide a dedicated website to enable them to book) and help provide them with information to enhance their stay in the city.
