The Williams F1 Conference Centre, at Grove, has received the Silver award for Best UK Conference Centre at the 2011 Meetings & Incentive Travel Awards ceremony.

The Williams F1 Conference Centre was voted to silver place by corporate event organisers as a leading example of customer service, quality of product and guest satisfaction.

As well as providing business facilities ranging from a 200-seat lecture theatre to a licensed bar and a shop, the centre hosts one of the foremost private collections of Formula One race cars anywhere in the world, bearing reference to the 16 World Championships won by Williams F1 since 1977.

The facility, which was opened in 2002, has 10 flexible event rooms capable of catering for intimate groups through to large-scale events for 200-plus guests. The facility has full-time kitchens, AV technicians, event planners and managers as well as a first-class service staff.

Adam Parr, chairman of Williams F1, said: "This is the third successive year that the Williams F1 Conference Centre has reached the finals of the Meetings & Incentive Travel Awards. Our goal is to win - so next year we’ll be aiming for the gold."
