Southampton Solent University’s Conference and Events team are delighted to have received not one, but two nominations for the international Conference Awards this summer.

They have been recognised in two categories; Best Conference Venue Customer Service and the Innovation Award for the team’s work on launching inventive catering outlet The Artisan, located in the city’s Cultural Quarter.

The award categories see the team pitted against recognised competitors including Emirates Stadium, Pullman at St Pancras, Marriott Hotels and London Evening Standard.

The judging process features a rigorous panel comprised of respected professionals from across the conference and events sector. As such the Conference Awards have gained the respect and backing of the industry to become a benchmark for achievement and acknowledgment.

Deputy Director of Estates & Services at Southampton Solent University, Bryan Carroll said:

“This is excellent news for the team, and the nominations are richly deserved. It comes at an exciting time as the team prepares a launch campaign ahead of moving into state of the art conference centre facilities within the University’s new Spark Building. The new facilities will enable the team to host larger and more dynamic events for both internal and external clients.”

The results of the awards will be released on 01 July 2016.
