Celebrating your company’s achievements

Celebrating your company’s achievements

1 June 2018

If you’re the person in your place of work responsible for organising your company awards ceremony, we know sometimes it can feel like a thankless task. Colleagues can be only too keen to offer advice, but not practical help. At the Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel, we work very closely with businesses to help ensure their company awards are memorable, run like clockwork, and to that everyone has an enjoyable time, including those organising the event.

There are many things to consider when organising a company awards ceremony, these are likely to include: The size of the venue, can it comfortably cater for all employees from various branches of the business?  Is it easily accessible; is there parking? Are there plenty of rooms for overnight accommodation? Can the menus be flexible enough to cater for any specific food requirements, or allergies? What pa system is available? Can a stage be set up? What sort of evening entertainment can be provided? Can we theme the event room with corporate colours?

At Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel, we’ll work with you to answer all these questions and more. An ideal location, right in the heart of Leicester, the hotel is easily accessible from public transport, and for those travelling from across the UK. The stunning grade II listed building adds grandeur to your event, perfect for those looking for a venue with character to act as a backdrop for your company’s achievements.

Diane Jackson, from Jupiter Hotels, recently organised their company awards, and held them at The Grand, she said: “For the fifth year running Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel was our chosen venue to hold our Annual Awards Ceremony. This year the Kings Hall was decked out in our barn dance theme and everyone got into full swing from line dancing to rodeo bull riding while enjoying western themed cocktails. The team at the hotel always do a sterling job both in organising, coping with the numerous changes, and on the day service, which is second to none.  The hotel has a range of suppliers that they work with and they kindly provided me with the details of the AV company and corporate entertainment company so that I could liaise directly with them ensuring that our requirements were fully met. We are looking forward to coming back again next year.”

Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel can cater for company events from small groups to up to 400 attendees. With a choice of seven event rooms to choose from, flexible menu choices, 104 bedrooms with a delicious breakfast for those staying over, the hotel is the perfect choice for hosting your company awards. Car parking for 120 cars is available on site.
