Park Inn by Radisson Northampton is perfectly equipped for your next corporate event
Location, Location, Location! The Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, Northampton, is at the heart of a developing town and the ideal location for any meeting or event.
From under the imposing and canopied entrance of Hotel, the ‘Northampton University Innovation Centre’, the flagship building of the ‘Northampton Enterprise Zone’ is a few minutes’ walk away, next to the train station. Northampton has been identified by government, as a ‘key area for economic growth’ attracting business, conference and meeting opportunities from across the region.
The space for your next event
It is safe to say that this historic market town is developing apace, transforming from chrysalis to butterfly, through huge investment and regeneration. The Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, has seen steady growth and demand for their considerable and spacious meetings portfolio, and addressed demand with refurbishment of their largest space, and one of the largest in the area, to consolidate their premier position as a meetings and events venue.
‘Versatility’ is the key word when describing the hotel’s 12 self-contained meeting rooms, with the capability of hosting events that can attract up to 600 guests. Conferences and seminars to self-catering weddings, the space really is that flexible. The newly designed ‘Buckingham Suite’ is the main venue and the star turn, occupying much of the hotel’s 886sqm of event space. The suite has been designed in a clever way, with an integrated and built-in stage, mood lighting to provide atmosphere as well as company branding opportunities, wall-dividers and an entry point to fit a showroom car; maybe a nod towards the nearby Silverstone racing track and certainly a push towards attracting automotive events business.
The Buckingham Foyer, a voluminous break-out area, sits between the Buckingham Suite and the other meetings rooms (Norfolk, Essex, Kent) allowing integration of delegates from multiple events taking place at the same time. All participants are then able to network at a self-service catering terminus and sizeable bar.
The location to meet
Northampton balances modernity with plenty of historical and cultural sites, that all sit within touching distance of the Park Inn by Radisson. Whilst enterprise and innovation has been allocated its own zone, the town’s vibrant arts and culture outreach is defined by Northampton’s evolving ‘Cultural Quarter’ headlined by the galleries, cafes and boutiques within the Guildhall Road area. Historical points of interest abound too, encapsulated by the ‘All Saints Church’ which was built in the Renaissance style, with a colonnaded portico, tower and cupola all completed by 1704.
Just outside the town centre, stately manors abound with the ancestral homes of George Washington (Sulgrave Manor) and Princess Diana (Althorp Estate) nearby. The motorsport mecca of ‘Silverstone’ is also on the door step and can provide track days for imaginative meetings planners, who wish to inject exhilaration and excitement, as a post conference incentive. For non-drivers, the hotel swimming pool and Jacuzzi may just suffice!
