Conference and events venue in south England
Heading to an alternative venue for your corporate away day or event can bring a welcome breath of fresh air into the working week. Spending consecutive days in the same office can take its toll on employee engagement, productivity and motivation, reducing levels of innovation and creativity. Venturing out to a different environment, however, can inspire new ideas and promote good employee relationships, both of which are important in creating a successful business.
The location, of course, is an integral factor in promoting a day that’s filled with positivity and productivity. An area that’s quiet, peaceful and abundant with nature provides minimal distractions, and stimulates our natural senses of being more alert and focused. Balmer Lawn Hotel is located in the heart of the New Forest, which is comprised of innumerable woodland walks and tranquil, quiet surrounds.
If you’re looking to arrange a corporate away day for your employees, you’ll also benefit from finding a venue that offers both formal and informal methods of communicating and innovating. At Balmer Lawn, our conference rooms provide the ideal space for planning and brainstorming for new projects. Our Beaulieu Room, for example, offers space for up to 150 delegates, which is ideal for larger companies or those wishing to collaborate. Alternatively, we also offer a number of smaller conference rooms – such as The Arden, which seats up to 20 delegates. Our Savernake Room is particularly ideal for those who appreciate a room with a view, since it’s been designed with floor-to-ceiling windows and overlooks the main gardens.
Many workforces enjoy an afternoon of team building following a morning meeting. At Balmer Lawn, we’ve partnered up with a number of external companies who support us in providing a range of land and water activities, including sailing, 4×4 off-roading, and horse riding. Our woodland walking routes also provide employees with opportunities to take a peaceful stroll during their break, helping to refresh the mind and encourage creative thinking. Team building activities are great for improving both personal and corporate relationships between employees, which are essential for boosting teamwork skills that can be transferred to the workplace.
Corporate visitors to Balmer Lawn can enjoy savings on our day delegate rates and residential packages. Our packages include food and drink offerings, the use of a meeting room and supporting technology, and a discount on our spa treatments – and, of course, the use of a Superior double room for those who choose the residential package.
At Balmer Lawn, we’re always delighted to welcome business guests and support their developments. To find out more about our conference and event offerings, please click here.
