Accolade for Leicester Conference venue

Our University's conference and training venue College Court has taken pride of place in a prestigious regional awards dinner.

The £17.5million facility has already won a clutch of awards - the latest coming from the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Awards dinner.

College Court, in Knighton, was selected as Winner of Business Improvement through Technology and Finalist for Excellence in Customer Service.

College Court Director Steve Crawford said: “It was lovely to be in the same room with so many businesses from across the region and see College Court up on the big screen. It was particularly thrilling to hear our name called out as winners.

“Our success is down to a team effort so a huge thank you to all who work at College Court. As we head toward our 3rd Anniversary I am sure that we can look forward to future success and indeed the need to buy a bigger trophy cabinet!

“There is another awards event this coming Friday where we have been shortlisted for Excellence in Professional Services.”

Since opening in October 2013 College Court has generated sales of £6.5 million. With the combined offer of College Court, Stamford Court and the broader portfolio, annual sales for the next financial year will be in excess of £4.5 million. All profits feed directly into the University.
