Conferences and corporate events
Thank you for all your help yesterday. We had great feedback from those that attended. Quite a few mentioned they loved the venue. Please also send my thanks to the SXS team and Relish, the caterers.

This is just to thank you very much for the excellent service. The forum had many prominent guests from London, Brimingham and the Southwest and everyone enjoyed the excellent hospitality, the refreshments and food, the comments we recieved attested to that, so once again, thank you!
