Holywell Park sees £150k refurbishment of interior

Holywell Park has completed its £150k second phase of refurbishment, which includes a major upgrade to its AV offering.

This is part of a wider overhaul of its ground floor event spaces and follows last year’s improvements to all eight of its first-floor meeting rooms and breakout spaces. 

The initial changes have already helped achieve significant business growth with a 71% increase in enquiries recorded during the first quarter of 2018.

Significant investment has gone into Holywell Park’s AV, including new 8,000-lumen projectors, state-of-the-art microphones and repeater screens.

The changes to the public spaces concentrate on improving flow and making the venue as efficient as possible. Alongside refurbishments to the reception area and modernised décor, pod areas and portable coffee stations have been introduced to add further flexibility.

Imago Venues’ Head of Venues, Keith Barber, comments: “The refurbishments at Holywell Park have been implemented to create the optimum meeting and event environment with the highest possible standard of facilities and infrastructure.

"We love that Holywell Park offers space and flexibility and recently has become increasingly popular with event organisers looking for an exclusive use venue.”

Holywell Park offers a large exhibition area, nine versatile meeting rooms and a well-equipped lecture theatre which can seat up to 200 delegates. It also benefits from spacious break out areas, one of the fastest free Wi-Fi networks of any conference centre in the UK and ample free parking.

This latest investment has taking place alongside the multimillion-pound first phase upgrade to sister venue, Burleigh Court, which is seeing all 186 bedrooms modernised. Imago Venues also have plans to upgrade the conference and meeting facilities in Burleigh Court in the near future.
