""As part of our Renewables Roadshow in 2011, which was designed to educate trade professionals about green technologies, we ran six events across the UK in September and chose Cheltenham Racecourse as our venue for the south west region. It is well known, it is well located, it has got lots of free parking and the main exhibition space, The Centaur, was perfect for our needs. "We had 60 exhibitors and 500 visitors for the one-day roadshow, and I'd say the venue was spot on for this size of event, although the space is flexible, with other rooms you can add on. "The set-up was pretty seamless, if intensive, as Cheltenham was our third roadshow. Perhaps the only issue was that we used two or three lounges on separate floors to the main space, so we had to use the lifts. However, the in-house team was very helpful, making sure the production side ran smoothly. Inside The Centaur, we had five different theatres with seminars, talks and demos focusing on various subject areas, ranging from water efficiency to solar panels - for instance, we had a mock-up roof in the middle of the exhibition to show how solar panels operate - and it all worked well. "Already 90 per cent of exhibitors have signed up for next year's roadshow and we've grown in size. Cheltenham doesn't have the capacity for us now unfortunately, otherwise we'd definitely be back in 2012!" "

""I just want to say thank you to Cheltenham Racecourse for holding our fantastic Christmas party on the 3rd December. I have had lots of compliments about the food. All the venue staff were excellent, and I would like to give a special thanks to the stewards and security as they were really helpful on the night..." "

""The staff at Cheltenham Racecourse were very friendly, and the quality of Hatton's Grace and the facilities the room offered were very good. We had the use of excellent quality AV equipment, and the flexibility Cheltenham Racecourse offered when it came to booking our event was superb. We would love to use the venue again, and recommend it to anyone looking to hold a meeting. We were thrilled to take our senior managers away from their desks for one day, and the racecourse was perfect for our creative thinking sessions." "

""We really enjoyed our day at Cheltenham Racecourse. We've had previous successful conferences there, so I was happy to come again. Cheltenham Racecourse met our criteria of being close to local transport links, having lots of free car-parking and enough space to be able to present to and feed over 800 delegates. Early and easy access to the Racecourse on set up and live day was a great plus side for us, we have a lot to get set up so the support in us doing this was much appreciated. Chloe, our Event Manager was brilliant! She's very professional and always really helpful; everything was in the process of being set up as I arrived on the day prior the event. I know if I need something answered or sorted (even at the last minute) I can just give Chloe a call and it'll be done. We always have our own brand food at lunch to allow delegates to taste our new up and coming products at conferences. It was important to me to have the confidence that the venue would be able to do our products justice and Cheltenham Racecourse's caterers really did our products proud. I was especially impressed at how quickly and efficiently the delegates were served lunch, I think we had all 800 delegates out of the main hall and fed within 12 minutes! We've booked Cheltenham Racecourse again for later on in the year, and look forward to returning. On a side note the venue catering was great, we were provided breakfast early on the conference day for the presenters who were arriving early to rehearse, and the scrambled eggs were honestly the best I've ever tasted!"
