Why Blackpool

Unrivalled Delegate Experiences – Always a Pleasure

An unforgettable event starts from the moment you arrive in Blackpool; from stunning and unique conference rooms to the bright lights of the illuminations and the dizzy heights of the iconic Blackpool Tower and the world-famous Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Blackpool offers a truly unique delegate experience.

From the intimate yet beautiful Baronial Hall, to the stunning golf course views of the Village Hotel Club Blackpool, to the brand new £30 million Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre right in the town centre, there truly is event space for everyone to meet, chat, learn and network. But when the agenda wraps, you're just getting started here in Blackpool.

Steeped in a rich history of comedy, entertainment, cabaret and fun, there are plenty of ways to keep your delegates entertained, engaged and networking, that you really can't experience anywhere else in the UK.

Where else offers delegate experiences like these:

  • Enjoy a drinks reception on the thrilling Skywalk, at the top of The Blackpool Tower. At 380ft above ground level, the ‘Walk of Faith’ on the five-centimetre thick glass platform is not for the faint-hearted but it will provide delegates with views to die for, incredible photo opportunities and a great story to take home with them, before dining in the most spectacular ballroom in the world. Your delegates can enjoy a rich tapestry of glamour, history, elegance and charm in The Blackpool Tower Ballroom; internationally renowned for its unique sprung dance floor, it's decor alone is guaranteed to impress your guests.
  • For a more traditional seaside experience, treat your guests to a Blackpool fish and chip supper onboard a chartered heritage tram and enjoy views of the spectacular coastline, and maybe even take in the world-famous illuminations, too. You can finish the evening on one of Blackpool's three iconic piers with drinks at Bloom Bar or a night of cabaret and entertainment at Viva Blackpool.
  • If you've got thrill-seekers in tow, ride the UK's first double-launch rollercoaster at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. ICON accelerates at 0-80km/h in 2.25 seconds before reaching heights of 88ft at speeds of up to 85km/h. You can enjoy dinner and drinks at one of the many in-park eateries or at the Boulevard, where your delegates can enjoy dinner overlooking the promenade with private dine options available.
  • Celebrate at awards ceremonies and parties inside iconic event spaces like the Winter Gardens' Empress Ballroom, home to sports events like World Matchplay Darts, and where some of the globes most iconic artists and bands have played live.

And when the day is over, the resort boasts a host of stunning business accommodation options for your delegates, too; from seafront views to theme park hotels, serviced accommodation to luxury golf retreats, there's Blackpool accommodation for every one at every budget level.
