Get the venue right for your corporate event

The best events begin and end with the venue. Finding the right space for your corporate dinner helps set the tone and can make or break the overall experience.

When thinking about your corporate dinner event, consider what you need from the venue to make it happen. For example, if winning new business is the aim, look at finding a wow-factor space with either historic or state-of-the-art features. Or if you’re looking to host a day of team building, a practical venue with flexible layouts will encourage conversation, socialising, and teamwork.

We also have a range of dining spaces to choose from, including our recently refurbished Club 106 for informal eating and the pitch-view Royal Suite that’s suited to sit-down, formal dinners.
