Business booms post pandemic to allow £120,000 investment into Derby Conference Centre

The Derby Conference Centre (DCC) have seen an 108% increase in business in the first quarter, after restriction’s have lifted, allowing them to commit to investing in the building to support meetings, conferences, and events in the coming year. The refurbishment of all meeting rooms, conference rooms and bedrooms are planned to be complete by the summer.

The renovation includes significant upgrade to the meeting room technology, with new high spec projectors, screens, speakers, and video conferencing equipment, which will take the DCC to a new level. Alongside this, new coffee machines and a vending machine, have been installed so that guests are able to enjoy a selection of premium coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and snacks in the newly redecorated meeting rooms. Air conditioning is planned to be installed across all meeting rooms and sunken lounge before the summer heat arrives to ensure that the customer experience is comfortable.

Matthew Hutchings, Managing Director at the DCC says

‘If there was ever a positive from the pandemic, it is that it has allowed me to assess where we are as a business, and what we can do to enhance the customer experience. It is great news, that we are able to undertake this large refurbishment, and with upcoming days at the DCC having sold all 12 of our meetings rooms, I am looking forward to seeing the conference centre busy and vibrant again!’
