The Scottish Event Campus has officially launched the latest addition to its award-winning conference offering; the SEC Meeting Academy. The facility is a £500,000 investment, and the newly created space is ideal for self-contained small to medium-sized meetings. Alternatively, the space can be integrated with the wider SEC conference facilities providing a VIP space for larger meetings.
The SEC Meeting Academy features a central 300-400 theatre-style capacity room and links with breakout rooms and networking spaces overlooking the concourse. Alongside the larger theatre space, the four smaller meeting rooms formerly known as the Seminar Suite are being upgraded in line with the new facility and form part of the SEC Meeting Academy.
The new space acts as both a stand-alone conference offering, and as an additional provision for larger congresses. The area has its own contemporary colour palette and a fresh new identity, that sits, alongside the growing suite of Scottish Event Campus brands. Bookings were being taken for the SEC Meeting Academy even before completion, highlighting the demand for such a product within the campus.
Director of Conference Sales, Kathleen Warden, said: “The SEC Meeting Academy is a fantastic addition to our campus. The flexibility of the space means that we can accommodate more small to mid-sized meetings whilst offering larger events more space and more diversity in the product.
“The space is tailored to the needs of organisers and delegates, whether it be for training or a smaller local corporate meeting for 200 – 300, or for a large conference of 2000 – 3000. The new space has integrated informal workstations and charging points, and the latest conferencing technology for interactive sessions. The reaction from our clients has been terrific – It’s a great enhancement inside the campus, and complements the evolution we have going on outside the campus; from the new hotels to a whisky distillery.”
The SEC Meeting Academy officially opens mid February 2018.
