Business Essentials – Advertorial

Organising a successful and memorable conference requires diligent planning and attention to detail, ensuring your guests are comfortable and engaged throughout. Kelly Tait, Manager at St Austell Conference Centre, shares essential tips that turn an ordinary event into an extraordinary conference.


The backbone of any successful conference has got to be cutting-edge technology. Any venue must be equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, high-speed internet, and seamless connectivity. All of our rooms feature all you need at no extra cost. Plus we know that things don’t always go to plan when it comes to technology, so we make sure that a reliable support team is on standby to ensure that any glitches are quickly resolved.


In an era of environmental consciousness, hosting a sustainable conference is not just a trend but a responsibility. Anyone who knows us, knows that our eco-commitment goes above and beyond. We have an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating – the world’s leading sustainability assessment for buildings. By harvesting water, housing a grass topped roof and using solar panels we’re fusing efficiency, ecology and excellence to bring you a conference facility that stands out.


Comfortable attendees are engaged attendees. We opt for ergonomic furniture, natural light and ensure the seating arrangements promote interaction and attentiveness. And we have to mention the best part of any conference… the food! Lunch and regular breaks offer time for networking, sharing ideas and engaging conversations, and our quality, local catering is an essential part of that.

Accessibility and Inclusivity

A truly successful conference is one that is accessible to all. At St Austell Conference Centre, our rooms are accessible to individuals with various needs, and we do our very best to make any extra adjustments where necessary – just let us know what you need. While we have rooms for up to 100 delegates, our breakout rooms can be made available for informal sessions, as well as our garden areas for fresh air and fresh thinking. We also offer designated parking for conference attendees for a hassle-free arrival.

A Friendly Team

Feeling looked after before and throughout your conference has to be part of the deal. Our specialist team is always ready to go the extra mile to make your day flow seamlessly – us taking care of everything behind the scenes means you can focus on what’s important.
