Hotel Aims for Three in a Row in 2012
Having already taken home a number of awards and recognitions this year including ‘Best Spa in the South’ and retaining their Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor, luxury Hampshire hotel, Careys Manor has now been short-listed for the Beautiful South, Business Tourism Award 2012-2013.
The Beautiful South Awards For Excellence are run in a partnership between Tourism South East and Services for Tourism and aim to find some of the best hotspots for tourism in the south. The Business Tourism category seeks to find the top venues in the region for corporate bookings, highlighting those who tailor individual events including exhibitions, conventions, conferences, banquets and team building days to the needs of both local and national clients.
The judging process for the awards took account of an initial entry form, along with web searches, emails, telephone calls and a mystery visit from a judge. The panel of experts then combined their findings, selecting a final short-list by determining all areas of the corporate package should be rated at least excellent with some areas being rated as outstanding.
Lauren Bond-Thomas, Conference & Event Sales Executive at Careys Manor, explains her team’s delight at being nominated in the final of such a tough category:
“We are thrilled to be chosen as part of the short-list for the Beautiful South Business Tourism Award, amongst such strong competition in this category. At the heart of all our corporate packages, is our passion for providing a bespoke event, perfectly suited to the individual needs of the client. We understand that no two companies are the same and to that extent work closely with the lead contact to personalise every aspect of the day. Located just 90 minutes from central London by train, the serene location of the New Forest feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.”
With facilities available to host events from 8-150 delegates, wifi, modern visual equipment, purpose built, versatile conference rooms, unlimited refreshments and all the experience and know how to successfully run top class business events, Careys Manor should be the venue of choice for all your business event needs.
This years award ceremony will be held at Denbies English Vineyard, near Dorking on 28th November 2012, where the team from Careys Manor will find out if they have been successful in taking home a Gold, Silver or Highly Commended award in the highly sort after, Business Tourism category.
