The East of England Arena and Events Centre (EEAEC) has announced seven new accommodation partnerships with nearby hotels.
The new deals will provide a 10% discount on standard room rates for delegates attending conferences at the newly refurbished venue, according to EEAEC management.
The discount scheme ranges from well established chains including Holiday Inn Express, Best Western and Marriott, to smaller and boutique hotels.
Bryony Smith, sales office manager at The Haycock Hotel, a short distance from the venue, commented: “We are delighted to be an accommodation partner with the EEAEC, and look forward to helping to turn day visitors into overnight guests, delivering greater benefits to the local economy and helping the region and the city of Peterborough become a destination of choice for exhibition visitors, music fans and conference delegates.”
Business development manager at the venue, Dean Rees, said: “Striking up partnerships with hotels in the region helps us further improve and develop our complete visitor experience, and provides organisers with another reason to bring their events to us. I’m delighted with the response from our local hotels, and believe that partnerships like this will benefit the Arena, the hotels and the local economy in general.”
The EEAEC is a multi-purpose venue with a total of 9,000sqm of indoor event space divided between the main Arena, the Atrium and four fully-equipped event suites.
