The much-loved seaside resort of Blackpool is also a well-established conference and business destination. With over 100 venues and 300 accredited accommodation options, the resort can deliver
meeting, incentive and corporate hospitality packages across the board. The Blackpool Conferences and Meetings team provides impartial advice to organisers, covering free venue-finding and
accommodation-booking, site visits, help with bid preparation, provision of support materials and advice – and in some instances, assistance – on funding. Venues of note include the Barcelo
Imperial Hotel, which hosted the North West Labour Party Conference in 2011 and can hold 600 theatre style, and the historic Winter Gardens – a six-spaces-in-one venue suitable for conferences,
exhibitions and concerts – which re-opened last year following the first phase of a major refurb.
