The Secret to Hosting a Successful Conference

The ultimate guide to hosting a successful conference

Organising a large corporate event can seem daunting, but luckily for you, we have a few top tips handy to keep things running smoothly at your conference.

Here at Rushton Hall, one of the premier meeting venues in Northamptonshire, we understand the importance of ensuring that your conference runs as smoothly as possible.

This is why we take such care and attention when planning and executing these events because we know that a happy delegate makes a successful conference.

But how do you keep your delegates engaged, entertained and contented?

Light it Up

So many conferences take place in dingy, windowless conference centres which are not at all conducive to a healthy work environment.

Lack of natural daylight can make it difficult to concentrate and bring down the mood of the room.

This is certainly not the case at our meeting rooms in Northamptonshire.

We offer a broad range of light and airy venues in which you can hold your conference, depending on the size of the event.

From our striking Great Hall with its wood panelling, and plush furnishings, to the amazing new Orangery (opening July 2017), which is set in our lush green grounds and full of light.

This will make the world of difference to your conference, and set it apart from the rest.

Feed the Five Thousand

You don’t want any hungry delegates on your hands, and the usual limp sandwich just won’t cut the mustard.

Here at Rushton Hall, we can cater any event with exceptional fare from our 3-rosette kitchen.

With chicken liver parfait, slow-cooked pork belly, and Eton mess on the menu; your delegates certainly won’t leave hungry.

We are also able to provide refreshments throughout the day, so expect tea and cake aplenty to keep those delegates sweet!

Don’t Hide Away

Accessibility is key when organising a corporate event, as you don’t want attendees to arrive feeling stressed or tired from a long and arduous journey.

Luckily for you, Rushton Hall is situated ideally in the Midlands and easily accessible from the M5, M1 and A1(M).

Just 2 hours from central London by rail or by road, and less than an hour from Birmingham Airport, Rushton Hall truly is ideally located for access from all corners of the UK and beyond.


Hosting a conference at Rushton Hall couldn’t be simpler with all the expertise and state of the art facilities we have on hand.
