Lane End Centre stops late bookings to focus on core business

The Lane End Conference Centre in Buckinghamshire has stopped taking late bookings due to what it says has been strong growth in sales over the last 12 months.

The conference centre and hotel residence, which has 34 conference rooms in five separate buildings over 26 acres, says it wants to concentrate on its “core business”. As a result, Lane End will now not accept last-minute bedroom reservations unless they are part of a group booking through a corporate account.

In support of its business model, it has chosen not to sell its 104 en-suite bedrooms on a late availability basis.

“We are committed to delivering an environment conducive to learning and development, free from external distractions,” says Conference Centre Sales and Marketing Manager Heni Fourie. “At least 60 per cent of our overall portfolio of business comes from repeat customers. We understand the needs and expectations of our customers and we take care not to jeopardise our core business.”

Lane End Conference Centre has recently undergone a major refurbishment programme which has included structural enhancements to some of its buildings to let in more natural light; a new boardroom; new bistro-style dining facilities and the new AV equipment for presentations.
