It’s easy to locate the perfect North Devon venue for conferences, exhibitions, product launches, and events.

With great road, rail and air links, North Devon is a great place to host a meeting, event or conference, with award-winning hotels and unique venues to be found all across the region.

The perfect venue for your event

Across North Devon there are also lots of hotels offering large meeting rooms to smaller syndicates, as well as excellent catering and a range of facilities. The addition of bars, accommodation and leisure facilities make hotels a great choice for anyone wanting their delegates to unwind after a day’s discussion or somewhere for them to stay for the duration of the event. Want something a bit more outside the box? You’ll find that too with everything from purpose built exhibition centres to conference facilities at some of the region’s most popular attractions.

The venues in North Devon have everything you need to create the perfect impression on your business associates and team members. From top of the range equipment, stunning locations and free WiFi, whatever vision you have for your event, it can be realised here.

Get there quicker than you think

While Devon might seem like it’s remote with the abundance of countryside and coastline, it is actually very well connected to cities all over the UK. From the main North Devon link road which connects the major road network to the region to the mainline train stations located all over the north of the county, there are plenty of ways for you and your delegates to travel. Great Western Railway has services running from all over the country and Devon is easily accessible by train from London, Birmingham, Manchester and even further afield.

Alternatively, the main airports in the county receive domestic flights from across the UK and are well connected to the train stations, ports and roads all across Devon.

Teambuilding and more

Sometimes your corporate events are more than just hammering out the details of a business meeting, sometimes you need time to build the team and get them more acquainted with each other. Being England’s Adventure Coast, North Devon is the perfect location for this with plenty of activities, adventures and leisure centres available for corporate use. Why not get your team mountain climbing on Exmoor or surfing in Croyde? Alternatively, they could compete against each other at one of the region’s wake parks or activity centres or just play a leisurely round of golf at one of the heritage courses that can be found here. Whatever you think your team needs to blow off steam, you’ll find it right here in North Devon. Not only that, but many of the businesses and hotels offering conference and business facilities are also able to arrange team building activities for you as part of your package, meaning there is even less for you to do!
