Small Business Awards 2017

CORPORATE VISION / 2017 Small Business Awards 15 , The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel is a world class conference venue located on the river Clyde outside Glasgow. We invited Bronagh Bell to tell us more about this superb venue and how it works to ensure that every event it hosts goes off without a hitch. Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel The Golden Jubilee combines the standards of 4-star hotel with the services and attention to detail required to host successful meetings, events and conferences. With 15 versatile meeting spaces, including a tiered auditorium, the Golden Jubilee has 168 bedrooms and is particularly popular with international associations who need the perfect combination of meeting facilities, on-site bedrooms, exhibition space, good food and relaxation facilities. Bronagh discusses how the establishment supports its clients and focuses on identifying and meeting their individual needs. “Here at the Golden Jubilee, we specialise in healthcare, pharma and medical related conferences, but 45% of our business comes from commercial companies particularly in energy and engineering. To ensure that everyone we host receives an experience to remember, we know that understanding our client’s needs is absolutely critical. Our top priority is clarifying what ‘success’ looks like for them and what they are trying to achieve. If we can understand these then we work as an extension of their team rather than a third-party venue. Checks and balances are crucial along the way and our Event Planners work closely with the client to make sure that they can adapt and refine the event to keep it stress free and ensure there are no last-minute surprises.” Looking ahead, the hotel has a number of invigorating plans for development in order to build upon its current success, as Bronagh concludes. “Ultimately, at the Golden Jubilee, our vision is to be the best Conference Hotel in the country and all our team are aware of this and keeps us fully focussed. We have a clear strategy to develop the venue as an international conference centre of excellence. “As part of our drive to achieve this, we are committed to developing our services and facilities, particularly for the business community and the healthcare sector, so we have a continuous improvement and redesign programme. We are now rolling out Phase Two of our Bedroom Remodelling Project, which will see all 168 bedrooms redesigned to include “must have” features for the modern delegate or business traveller. We recently opened the new Inspiration Space, a versatile and flexible meeting space, which acts as a blank canvas for meeting and event organisers.” Company: Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel Contact: Bronagh Bell Contact Email: [email protected] Address: Beardmore Street, Clydebank, Glasgow, G81 4 SA, UK Phone: 01419516000 Website: Business Hotel of the Year 2017 – UK & Award for Excellence in Hotel Conference Facilities SB170006
