Derby Conference Centre Launches New Business Lounge

The Derby Conference Centre on London Road has launched a new service and facilities for visiting and local business executives needing a quiet space to work on their travels or away from the office.

The members-only Business Lounge is part of an extensive refurbishment programme at the venue and is an expansion of the thriving conference offer at the venue with plans to expand the 40-strong workforce as membership increases. Facilities for business people include private meeting pods, free parking, superfast broadband and refreshments.  Discounts on meeting rooms and hotel accommodation is also available as part of the membership package options.

Mike Ebbitt, Managing Director of The Derby Conference Centre, which is part of the RTC Group, explained that The Business Lounge had been developed due to the growing number of business visitors to the city and the change in working practices such as hot desking and remote working. He said: “The Business Lounge is a natural extension to our successful conferencing and events facilities and addresses a real need in the city. “It part of our vision to focus on providing a top quality service to business customers in response to the increased demand from our existing corporate clientele. “It is a brand new concept to Derby and has been specially designed as the perfect environment to enable business executives and manager to gain uninterrupted time to focus on their work. “It is therefore perfect for the growing number of business people who are travelling to the city and need high quality facilities to conduct business either during or after the working day. “It is equally available to busy locally-based company executives who need the ‘head space’ to concentrate on working on the business, conduct confidential meetings at an off-site boardroom or conduct recruitment interviews in a central location. “Our Grade II listed building on the outskirts of the city centre and close to Pride Park is the ideal location for this new service and we have the added benefit of 50 quality bedrooms and our new premier bedrooms as well as a state of the art conference centre and bistro.”

Derby-based DE22 Creative Solutions in Friargate are working with The Derby Conference Centre to support the launch as part of the marketing re-brand for the venue. DE22 Creative Managing Director Martin Griffiths added: “This is a fantastic facility for business people to have the head space to work on their business without interruption and reflects Derby’s increasing stature as a great place to do business on an international stage.”
