Events that incorporate a practical element ultimately require an easily adaptable meeting space that can be set up in many formats.
At 15Hatfields, we offer a blank canvas ready to be tailored to your vision with the help of our experienced team. Spread over two floors, there are 14 rooms to choose from, varying in size and flexible in set-up. For practical training days and team building activities, tables and chairs can be cleared to create open spaces. Sliding partitions allow multiple rooms to be seamlessly combined and complemented with breakout spaces for networking and refreshment breaks.
We offer a range of catering solutions to suit your event schedule, from buffet-style lunches to canapé receptions and sit-down dinners. All of our delicious snacks and dishes are sourced and prepared using sustainable practices by local, organic and fair-trade food suppliers.
When it comes to slightly bigger training events predominantly led by one speaker, having access to quality audio-visual (AV) equipment is particularly important. Room layouts should also be considered to ensure that every delegate has a fair view of the stage, screen or speaker.
Since opening our doors in 2008, our venue has been a popular choice for conferences and speaker-led workshops. Our light and spacious rooms are well-suited to theatre-style seating, providing delegates with unobstructed views of speaker podiums and raised platforms, as well as screens for video demonstrations and presentation slides.
Expertly managed by our in-house team, our state-of-the-art AV facilities include HD ceiling-mounted and portable projectors; discreet in-ceiling speakers; integrated roving, lapel and table microphones; and in-house laptops with the latest software for running PowerPoint, Prezi and videos.
For event planners looking to expand the reach of their event while reducing its cost and carbon footprint, we offer a virtual event package. Using Logitech Rally Plus, your event can be broadcast to a potentially unlimited number of users around the globe. Moving your event online also provides creative opportunities for delegates to engage with talks and workshops: voting, polls, live chats and virtual networking.
Intimate meetings, brainstorming sessions and group discussions are often where some of the most creative ideas are born. Therefore, choosing the right environment which aids productivity is key.
Light and contemporary meeting rooms are available throughout our venue and furniture can be configured to meet your requirements. When colleagues and students are unable to attend in person, our affordable hybrid event solution allows them to easily join your meeting remotely through integrated video links. Using our super-fast Wi-Fi and intelligent new technology Logitech Rally Bar, you can hold productive and interactive discussions between attendees at multiple sites.
Meeting room hire for educational purposes, in particular examinations, needs to offer a secluded and quiet space that’s free from distraction. What’s the soundproofing like in the building? Are other guests constantly coming and going around you?
Our bright study spaces are ideal for productivity and concentration. Interconnecting rooms on the ground floor can be combined to create one large classroom, seating up to 150, or divided into smaller study spaces with soundproofed partitions. Our team are experienced in working with exam moderators and accommodating specific examination requirements. Recently renovated with new windows and upgraded Wi-Fi and AV facilities, our lower ground floor Ozone room can hold up to 100 individual desks. Standard exam room hire includes desk arrangement to meet testing conditions, dedicated reception registration, large projected digital clock, private invigilators’ room and secure storage.
As the official venue of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), we are passionate about the benefits of staff and student training, in terms of both personal and professional development. CIEH run a range of flexible training courses to support businesses in areas such as food hygiene and health and safety, and recently relaunched the Directory of Student Training Opportunities to support the professional development of students of Environmental Health.
