Katie Niland, Sales Director at The Belfry Hotel & Resort said: “Whilst we have had to create a short term solution to temporarily replace live events, it also introduces a new and exciting fundamental change in how events will work in the future. With hybrid event options available we will no longer have to limit the number of attendees as technology is allowing planners to extend their reach of events further than ever before. Our new packages ensure that delegates who cannot physically attend in person can stay connected by communicating virtually with those who can be present in person.
“We are receiving an exceptional level of new enquires for meeting and event bookings. This also includes a huge increase in demand for events of over 200 people in the second half of 2021, showing confidence in the events market for next year.”
