The University of Leicester’s conference and training venue, College Court has taken pride of place at two regional awards.
The £17.5m facility, in Knighton, was selected as Winner of Business Improvement through Technology and Finalist for Excellence in Customer Service at the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Awards. Over 300 people attended the event at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium.
College Court director Steve Crawford said: “It was lovely to be in the same room with so many businesses from across the region and see College Court up on the big screen. It was particularly thrilling to hear our name called out as winners.
“Our success is down to a team effort…As we head toward our 3rd Anniversary I am sure that we can look forward to future success.”
College Court followed up the 2 September award, with a win in the ‘Professional Services’ category at the Niche Business Awards, 9 September.
Since opening in October 2013 College Court has generated sales of £6.5m. With the combined offer of College Court, Stamford Court and the broader portfolio, annual sales for the next financial year will be in excess of £4.5m. All profits feed directly into the University.
