When planning an event which brings together delegates from
around the world, success can hinge on two factors: Firstly, your
chosen venue must be accessible via a range of transport
options. Secondly, a tailored package is usually necessary to
meet the varied needs of your delegates.
For IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health), the
world's largest professional health and safety membership
organisation, their four day conference which brought together 140
delegates from around the globe raised just these challenges.
IOSH knew that their chosen hotel, The Westerwood Hotel &
Golf Resort, would tick all the boxes as their event organisers had
recently attended the hotel's re-launch event for the Carrick
Suite. This suite can host up to 400 delegates in flexible
space within the hotel's purpose-built, state-of-the-art conference
Equidistant between Glasgow and Edinburgh airports, with both
mainline and regional train stations easily accessible and situated
just off the M80, however the IOSH delegates were travelling they
were able to convene with the minimum of fuss.
The event organisers were also delighted to discover that a
truly bespoke dining menu could be created for their conference,
satisfying their brief of providing a 'Tour of the British
Isles'. From Chicken Tikka Masala and English Cream Tea, to a
whisky and chocolate matching session, the event guests were
treated to a showcase of the best of British cuisine - a perfect
way to avoid the criticism sometimes levelled at single-venue based
events, that you feel like you could be anywhere in the world.
The event organisers also seized the opportunity to inject some
local flavour into the entertainment with a Pipe Major to welcome
guests and an evening Ceilidh (in which the hotel's Banqueting
Manager was an enthusiastic participant) as well as using a local
Jazz trio on another, more relaxed evening.
Jordan Charles, Conference Manager at The Westerwood Hotel &
Golf Resort worked very closely with IOSH's Louise Appleby both
throughout the planning process and during the week of the event
and the success of the event is testament to the strong working
