Warwick Conferences, which is situated within 700 acres of countryside on the University of Warwick campus, is celebrating after being awarded Business Tourism Provider of the Year at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2017.
Warwick Conferences beat off stiff competition from Rockliffe Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa in County Durham and London’s The Crystal to secure the prestigious accolade.
Working collaboratively with the industry, VisitEngland’s Awards for Excellence celebrates the best in English tourism. Winners were revealed at the awards ceremony on Monday 24 April at the Hilton Waldorf, London.
