th (1)

I am delighted that the events team at Alton Towers have been voted Gold for ‘Best UK Unusual Venue’ in the Meetings & Incentives Travel Awards!

Alton Towers is a venue I used in 2014 for a clients incentive weekend and due to the success of the event we have decided to use it again in 2015.

This proved to be a popular event as clients often need to choose between work and family life and it is rare that the two can be enjoyed together. This event is unique to the group as they benefited from gold passes (allowing queue jump), early access to the park, personalised welcome packs and magic money to be used by the children on site. The group were able to stay in Alton Towers Theme Park past closing time and had exclusive use of the Sea Life Centre for a pre dinner drinks reception. Children helped feed the sea life while their parents enjoyed a glass of bubbles.The group are then treated to a three course BBQ menu in the Towers.

This year we are giving each family the option of Splash Landings or Alton Towers for a second day and the families are getting to stay in the new Enchanted Forest Lodges!

  1. Your blogs are going from strength to strength.

    I think this will appeal to so many people. Love the mention of work family balance – will strike a chord with working family men who need to earn some brownie points
