The University of Warwick has announced a brand new Sport and Wellness Hub, due to open in April 2019, which is set to offer unique opportunities for event organisers to enhance the delegate experience.
The facility will feature high specification spaces that can transform to accommodate multiple sporting activities at any one time, as well as major competitions and events. Organisers working with Warwick Conferences will be able to organiser more team-building activities for delegates, creating unique event experiences.
Sarah Dietrich, business development manager at Warwick Conferences, commented: “The new Sports and Wellness Hub is a fantastic facility by itself but, when combined with Warwick Conferences’ venues and our extensive event management support services, it becomes an extremely exciting prospect for businesses to take advantage of.
“We like to develop innovative and experiential learning and development environments and support our clients and their delegates. Having access to world-class sports facilities will help us create even more memorable and engaging events for all.”
Among the new facilities are two multi-purpose sports halls, with an arena-style balcony and retractable bleacher seating for up to 1,012 people, including eight wheelchair bays. The venue will also include a 25m 12-lane swimming pool with flexible configuration, moveable floor and disability access, as well as a major new indoor climbing centre.
It was recently announced that the new Hub will be a venue for the 2019 European Corporate Games. Taking place on 1-4 August, over 100 companies and more than 7,000 athletes are expected to participate across the four-day event, with Warwick Conferences providing event support and accommodation.
