EVENTS:review spotlighted venue triumphs

Harrogate International Centre’s (HIC’s) Queen’s Suite has been named as Yorkshire’s best Business Tourism Venue at the White Rose Awards 2006 organised by the Yorkshire Tourist Board. Other finalists included Ripley Castle and the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

Collecting the award at the ceremony held at Magna in Rotherham, HIC’s director said: “This is a fantastic achievement for all the team at HIC and I’m truly delighted the Queen’s Suite has been recognised in this way. HIC is proud of the great relationship we have with our clients and our commitment to listen to their changing needs was one of the principle reasons the Queen’s Suite was built.”

The Queen’s Suite, part of a HIC’s wide range of facilities, offers modern and flexible space allowing organisers the option of choosing from different room layouts and is capable of seating 600 theatre-style. It can also be divided in to any combination of up to ten rooms.

“Since opening in 2005 the Queen’s Suite has proved a runaway success helping to strengthen HIC’s reputation as one of Yorkshire’s and the UK’s leading venues as well as sustaining significant economic benefits to the area,” said Dr Mike Gardner, leader of Harrogate Borough Council and chairman of the HIC Board.

Through winning the award, the Queen’s Suite at HIC automatically goes forward to compete in the national Enjoy England Excellence awards to be held early 2007.
