Kettering Conference Centre will be re-opening in March 2022.
Situated in Northamptonshire, Kettering Conference Centre is one of the most centrally located venues in the UK and is managed by The Venues Collection - a nationwide provider of training and conference facilities and part of Compass Group UK & Ireland.
The venue can host up to 2,000 delegates and is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Northamptonshire area, available for meetings, training sessions, conferences, exhibitions, product launches, Christmas parties and wedding celebrations.
Joanne Barratt, MD of The Venues Collection, said: “We are really looking forward to re-opening and welcoming events and visitors back to the centre. We are already working with a number of local and national companies who are interested in our wide range of facilities and our central, easily accessible location. We will be opening in March 2022 but we are holding show rounds before this date for interested event organisers.
“We decided to wait until the conference and event market was fully back again before we reopened. Since lockdown, we have been supporting the NHS and our local community by housing an NHS COVID testing facility.”
