Hartlepool College's theatre-sized Conference Centre are popular and successful places for businesses to host meetings, training programmes and special events. During early planning stages for its new building, the College seized the opportunity to create a new bespoke resource that would further amplify and enhance our support for business. Highlighting ambience, comfort, flexibility and innovation, the new Conference Centre is custom-designed to meet the demands of businesses of all sizes and areas of operation.
Flooded with natural light from the impressive full-length glazing high above, the new Conference Centre takes up almost the entire lower floor of the College's canyon-like North Wing. This large, bright and welcoming space is home to an exclusive exhibition of work by renowned artist Tom Wall, and also a vintage M.G. car restored by College students. In addition, the College's stylish Flagship Restaurant is also located here, offering a superb menu and, at certain times of the year, an alfresco dining experience. A fully programmable digital signage system provides clear information, as well as adding a high-tech touch of sophistication.
Every room in the Conference Centre is designed to allow clients the freedom to conduct their business or event with complete confidence, comfort and privacy. Furnished and equipped to the highest standard, these are spaces intended to allow people to innovate, entertain and impress.
The three main Conference Rooms have a combined capacity of almost 500 people, hosting up to 240, 112 and 48 delegates respectively. The largest of these utilises cinema-style tiered seating to allow an unhindered view of a 6m glare-free high definition screen, accompanied by a Dolby Digital surround sound system. For meetings, a cluster of luxuriously appointed boardrooms are available across the corridor. All rooms feature high-speed wi-fi, and rooms can be configured depending on bespoke requirements.
Clients also have access to an array of presentation resources, such as interactive whiteboards, HD televisions and state-of-the-art projectors. Naturally, a wide selection of hospitality is also available. From 2012, up to 300 free parking spaces will also be available.
Finally, for maximum flexibility, the Conference Centre and Flagship Restaurant can be isolated from the rest of the building, allowing them to be operational even when the main College is closed. To Enquire about our Conference Facilities please phone Jo Rutter on 01429 292888.
