Red Bull Racing is set to launch a new corporate events space called MK-7 this June.
MK-7 is located within Red Bull Racing’s Milton Keynes factory headquarters and will be available to facilitate a range of corporate events. Event organisers are often left with the burden of needing to find a venue that offers something different, which is why we like the look of Red Bull Racing’s latest events space, which gives guests access to the glamour and innovation of Formula One.
The Boardoom, which features a glass wall
The space includes the 20-capacity Boardroom, which comes with complimentary Wi-Fi and features an attractive glass wall that overlooks the Red Bull team’s complete championship-winning car collection. If you're worried the cars will be too distracting or you need a moment to focus, you'll be glad to know that the glass wall can be changed from transparent to opaque.
The Boardroom also features other nods to the venue’s primary function, including a display of racing memorabilia from some of the best race drivers in history. It’s not all bells and whistles though – there are practical elements too, including two large presentation screens, ceiling-integrated speakers and video conferencing capabilities. The boardroom also boasts two smaller meeting rooms for groups of up to eight people, which are well suited to breakout sessions or more intimate functions.
The smaller breakout meeting rooms
Another element of the space is the Mezzanine, which is best suited to standing receptions or breakout lunches and dinners. Able to accommodate up to 40 guests, the space comes complete with an exciting backdrop, thanks to its bird’s eye view of the entire Grand Prix car collection. If your clients are racing fans, we’d recommend picking the Museum area, which is available for exclusive hire. The Museum houses the team’s complete car collection and features an AV wall which would be ideal for gala dinners and large functions. The space can host up to 170 for a seated dinner or 450 for a standing reception, with guests mingling around some of Formula One’s most advanced technology.
For a truly immersive experience (that would make for a good teambuilding session), try the Race Bay and Boardroom. This is the area where the cars are stripped, inspected and reassembled by the mechanics – the space features a glass-encased boardroom which overlooks this stealthy operation, and also features a 65-inch presentation screen and sound system, able to host up to 40 delegates.
