The Derby Conference centre has announced the launch of their brand new conferencing space, the ‘Douie Suite’. The private conferencing area comes as part of their £1m refurbishment project, which began in 2016.
The Douie Suite is named after Bill Douie, the Chairman of the parent company RTC Group. The suite was unveiled at the annual RTC awards night and has recently been opened to the public.
The self-contained meeting space can accommodate up to 30 people, with access to a dedicated bathroom and break out area. The 60 square metre suite is suitable for small team meetings, or conferences for larger groups. The centre has also invested in a built-in plasma screen, exclusive to the area, for delegate viewing and presentations.
Rebecca Prime is the sales and conference office manager at The Derby Conference Centre. She said: “Our Douie Suite is perfect for those looking for a dedicated space to hold team meetings and conferences. We’ve had a fantastic response so far and are pleased to see the Conference Centre continuing to benefit from our investment in the refurbishment project.”
Coinciding with their 10-year anniversary, the substantial investment aims to provide additional and more flexible facilities at the venue. The latest refurbishment adds to last years’ launch of their business lounge, revamp of the Wyvern Bar, and renovation of the Stephenson Restaurant, Lecture Theatre, reception and toilets.
