QHotels, has this month launched its new 'Inspirational
Training' facility at Norton Park, Winchester- inspired by what
trainers, bookers and trainees really need from a training
Recognising demand in the industry for spaces designed
specifically for training events, QHotels commissioned research
with customers, trainers and businesses across the UK, to inform
its new offering, 'QHotels Inspirational Training'.
Group Operations Manager at QHotels, Joanne Barratt, who lead
the research and development said: "As leaders in conferencing and
events, we've seen a huge demand within the industry for a space
specifically designed for training rather than re-purposed
conference space, so we spoke directly to the trainers themselves,
to ensure we're in-tune with the current needs of our
"Today, high-quality AV tech and equipment are expected as
standard from a venue but actually, we found that trainers believe
that face-to-face interaction is integral when it comes to learning
"It became clear that the biggest requirement for trainers is
actually flexibility, in both the room and service; a flexible
space to act as a blank canvas for their specific training event as
well as an inspiring and comfortable environment designed to
enhance the training process.
"With this in mind, QHotels Inspirational Training at Norton
Park has a simple, modern layout with plenty of break out areas and
a free syndicate room can also be requested, allowing for flexible
room set up. The simple and modern décor, including an
inspirational feature wall and informal, relaxed and ergonomic
furniture, has also been designed to enhance the learning
"Key to flexibility is also choice, so the inspirational package
offers the widest choice throughout the day for both trainer and
delegates, including terms and conditions for the organiser and
unique restaurant lunches with healthy and brain-stimulating
options, to keep blood sugar levels balanced and trainees focused
throughout the day.
"Although bespoke training rooms exist within specific training
venues those using QHotels Inspirational Training also benefit from
the facilities of a four-star hotel - leisure clubs, spa, dining
options, comfortable rooms and award-winning service," Joanne
The Inspirational Training concept launched at Norton Park in
March and has already had almost 100 enquiries and
QHotels is currently gathering further feedback on the new
training space from customers at Norton Park, in order to
continually improve the offer and roll QHotels Inspirational
Training out to other venues within its group of 26 hotels
over the next year.
