Ten Ways To Make Your Corporate Event Simply Splendid
If you’re wondering what it is that makes one venue better than another, here are ten tip-top expectations we feel you should have (and how we feel that Deer Park will fit the bill, whatever your venue requirements).
1. Privacy – you need it!
You don’t want every Tom, Dick and Harry getting wind of your corporate strategy plans now, do you? That’s why we created our Motor House. Away from the main building, with its own facilities and break out area. If you’re planning a major event, you can book the whole of the hotel on an exclusive use basis. Bet you didn’t know that!
2. Facilities – everything you need all in one place
As well as the Motor House, our Orangery offers seating for up to 222 delegates, theatre style or 200 for a lunch or dinner. There aren’t any oranges, but there’s loads of lovely light and space, and views across our stunning gardens. Smaller events are perfectly catered for in the Drawing Room or Conservatory. Plentiful free parking is on hand with easy access to all facilities.
3. Accommodation – give your delegates a real treat
Spoil your delegates rotten with a stay in our four-star accommodation with choices ranging from eclectic rooms in the main hotel, to newly refurbished garden rooms or our self-catering executive house. Need to house a celebrity speaker, or the CEO? Our tree-house offers a touch of luxury with all the trimmings.
4. Environment – encouraging the thinking process
Your delegates will love our wonderful grounds that stretch to the River Otter, affording beautiful views over East Devon. The grounds are packed with pleasure, with beautiful gardens, a walled garden bursting with goodies and lots of places to sit and think. Or sit and not think. Entirely up to you.
5. Food – no one lives on bread alone
Are great decisions made on an empty stomach? No! Luckily at Deer Park we have a talented team that will configure your perfect buffet lunch, whip up a break out treat or cook up a storm of an evening meal in our restaurant or private dining rooms. Food for thought? Definitely!
6. Accessibility – so your delegates don’t lose their way
Could there be anything worse than delegates getting lost en route to the venue; arriving late, flustered and not in the best of moods? Fear not! Deer Park is easy to find, just off the A30 near Honiton and not far from the M5, making it a breeze for delegates from London, the Midlands, Wales and the South Coast. Your team can also fly into Exeter Airport, catch the train or land the company copter in our grounds.
7. Staff – making your team feel welcome
While you are investing in your staff, we’re investing in ours. We put the quality of our staff at the top of our priority list. Discretion, politeness, a willingness to help and a desire to make your visit the best experience possible. We think they’re simply marvellous.
8. Technology – work smarter, not harder
We’re superfast! A recent addition to the Deer Park menu, our super high speed fibre broadband means you will never lose your connection from the outside world. Unless you jolly well want to, that is. Video conference to your heart’s content and never have to buffer again. Rural idyll with super speeds! It’s magic.
9. Activities – all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
Why not plan some amazing activities to break up your hard work into manageable chunks? Choose from survival skills, It’s a Knockout, duck herding and more. Or how about putting a top of the range Land Rover through its paces on a specially built, off-site course? Crikey, that’s a thought…
10. Flexibility – I say! We will jump through hoops for you
We believe Deer Park has the most comprehensive corporate offer to make your event a success; whether you’re training, planning, strategizing, launching or just getting the shareholders together. With regular bookings from FTSE 250 companies we think we’ve got it nailed. But if there’s something additional you need then all you need to do is ask, and we’ll be on the case.
