Fresh Air Fresh Venue 2009: Set 812

Fresh air fresh venue

SET in 812 acres of beautiful parkland, seconds from the A1 and minutes from Newcastle International Airport, Newcastle Racecourse has become a premier venue
in the national conference and banqueting sector. From hosting major events from the North East Regional Business Fair to one-to-one meetings, this year is set to build on Newcastle Racecourse’s growth in the sector, despite a challenging economic climate. The racecourse has taken bookings for a wide range of conferences and in total will cater for more than 10,000 delegates in 2009. This demonstrates the importance and value businesses place in meeting face to face, gaining direct access to large audiences, networking and developing new contacts. Executive director Mark Spincer said: “Conferences and corporate events have become an increasingly important part of our business and we are now an established and well-regarded venue nationally. We have hosted events ranging from international political conferences to major business fairs and one-to-one corporate meetings. “Our regular clients include Newcastle Primary Care Trust, Newcastle University, Dept of Work & Pensions, Living North and Rotary International” “We enjoy excellent transport links, being highly accessible from the A1, A19 and Newcastle International Airport. We are minutes away from Newcastle city centre, which is a major draw for many people, and there is all the added glamour that goes with being a racecourse.” Whatever the client or occasion, the Newcastle Racecourse prides itself on providing a first-class service and attention to detail, all set against the stunning and atmospheric backdrop of a renowned sporting venue. The racecourse has hosted product launches, filming and photographic projects, exhibitions and trade shows and team building events.
Combined with excellent transport links, it also offers free parking for 12,000 cars and is within a few minutes’ walk of two hotels.
