A new health, beauty and wellness innovation hub in Nottingham, MediCity, is set to open next week with hospitality facilities for conferences and events. The hub is part of the Nottingham Enterprise Zone.
The Meeting Space at MediCity, which will be able to cater for up to 1,000 delegates, has been designed to host events and conferences focused on the health, beauty and wellness sectors.
MediCity, a collaboration between pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer Boots and sciences incubation company BioCity, will officially open during MediCity Innovator’s Week (18-22 November 2013). On 19 November, MediCity will host tours and an invitation-only lunch in The Meeting Space for representatives from across the UK conferencing, hospitality and events industry.
Primary research conducted by BioCity and the location marketing organisation, Experience Nottinghamshire, has identified a gap in the county’s conference and events market for a venue which is able to cater for over 300 people as well as large exhibitions. The Meeting Space encompasses several floors of the art-deco building D6, which is located on the Boots site in Beeston.
“The Meeting Space at MediCity offers event managers an iconic as well as contemporary place to hold gatherings of almost any size,” says David Browning, Director of MediCity. “The historic building has been sympathetically refurbished to reflect the Boots legacy and to inspire the next wave of product innovation in the health, beauty and wellness sectors.”
Jennifer Spencer, Chief Executive of Experience Nottinghamshire, adds: “The creation of this new facility further enhances the event and conferencing offer in Nottinghamshire, as well as greatly increasing our conference capacity in the city. As the site is of great historical significance we expect it will be extremely popular and we look forward to welcoming more national and international business visitors as a result of this new development.”
