Sales and Marketing Manager at Lane End, Heni Fourie, says: “Demand for our conference and meeting facilities near London is at its highest since the recession kicked in. But while business is thriving, it is not something we take for granted.
“Our brilliant team works fantastically hard to remain recession-proof.
“As well as ensuring customers continue to beat a path to our door by providing exemplary customer service; we continue to plough profits back into making our facilities the very best they can be.”
Since the start of the recession in 2007, the purpose-built conference centre in Buckinghamshire has undergone significant redevelopment to meet the changing needs of the meetings’ industry.
Alongside equipping our six conference suites with cutting edge AV technology and installing a direct fibre link to allow mega fast browsing and video conferencing at the site, a discreet rolling programme of building work goes on behind the scenes.
One building which has been totally transformed is Lane End’s Wycombe Lodge.
With 35 bedrooms and able to cater for up to 80 conference delegates, upgrades to the self-contained conference building include a new light and airy conference room, stylish private dining room and spacious double-height conservatory.
Bedrooms for overnight visitors have also been fully remodelled to include private balconies, revamped en suite bathrooms and full-size double beds.
And the changes are paying off.
The international conference venue was awarded BDRC Continental’s VenueVerdict Gold Standard Accreditation for the second year running in December.
Furthermore, over 80 per cent of visitors on Trip Advisor – renowned for giving unbiased views of venues – currently rate Lane End as ‘Very Good’ or ‘Excellent’.
One visitor says:
“Great customer service from start to finish.
“From the first enquiry I was given great information and options for our team building event and food/drink.
“Stunning grounds, different teambuilding events - something for everyone and an amazing BBQ to finish!
“Everyone in our team had a fun afternoon/evening - would highly recommend.”
