Drayton Manor Park and Hotel, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, isn’t just one of the UK’s most popular family attractions, it’s also a fantastic venue for corporate functions, including events, days out and team building activities.
Corporate fun days and team building events, organised through the 150-room hotel, are a proven way of developing relations between staff in a fun and informal environment.
Melissa Topley, Conference and Events Manager at the Drayton Manor Hotel, said: “The success of any company is down to its staff, so a motivated workforce is hugely important to an organisation. Team building events are an excellent way of improving communication within a team, developing trust and leadership skills, and most importantly, rewarding staff for their hard work. We aim to make these events the highlight of a company’s workforce calendar.”
“We offer flexible packages designed to improve creativity, boost communication and ultimately create a more energetic workforce. Our ethos is to ‘think different, experience more’. From a modern conference space to private park hire for up to 15,000 people, guests and their families can enjoy all the rides and attractions, such as Thomas Land™, white-knuckle thrill rides, and the 15-acre zoo. Not to mention the 152-seat 4D Cinema, which offers the very latest technology and special effects lighting, as well as superb sound and a nearly 10m screen.
“The added advantage is having an on-site hotel so our guests don’t have to travel home on the same day. They can spend the night here and just relax after their day of fun.”
Dean Webster, Events Manager at Mears Group PCL, said: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Drayton Manor on a number of events including our annual fun day where we take over the park exclusively. The team are fantastic, always offering advice and supportive plus flexible to our requirements.”
In addition to team building activities, Drayton Manor Theme Park is also a popular venue for a wide range of corporate events, including conferences, exhibitions and product launches. The park offers a variety of suites to cater for all needs.
With its Victorian themed façade and elegant outside garden space, the 450m2 Tower Suite has a capacity for up to 500 people. Perfect for the smaller events, the Hamilton Suite, 204m2, can accommodate up to 150 people.
These facilities are complemented by the Drayton Manor Hotel, which has the Park View Suite, a beautifully styled, large hospitality suite, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, accommodating up to 150 delegates. There are also three smaller rooms, each accommodating up to 12 people, making them ideal for board meetings.
In addition, Drayton Manor offers plentiful and free parking for cars and coaches, audio visual systems and free Wi-Fi.
“From product launches to large scale exhibitions and conferences, we can create unique memorable days and events for each and every guest. Our experience and facilities are second to none, and our success in the corporate market is built on 60 years of experience.” added Melissa Topley. “Additionally, the majority of our new business comes as a result of word-of-mouth and recommendations from customers, which is a great testament to what we offer.”
