Wyboston Lakes Resort shortlisted for two prestigious prizes at this year’s Conference & Events Awards

May 10, 2022

The award-winning Woodlands Event Centre at conference, training and leisure venue Wyboston Lakes Resort has again been recognised not only as one of the best conference venues in the country but also as among the most sustainable.

The resort has been shortlisted as a finalist for both Best Conference Venue (401-1100 seats theatre style) and for the Venue Sustainability Award at the highly coveted Conference & Events Awards.

Director of Marketing, Louisa Watson, said: “It is tremendously exciting to be recognised as a finalist for two such prestigious awards and it is wonderful testimony to the superb quality of our facilities and to the continuing commitment of our team to our policy of ‘More Sustainable, No Apology.’

The Woodlands Event Centre was transformed in 2019 to meet the needs of the latest generation of delegates and event organisers. With a variety of rooms fully equipped with the latest technology, it is highly popular and busy with events for many sectors including financial services, pharmaceutical and associations.

The resort’s commitment to sustainability has been independently accredited by earning gold awards from the Green Tourism Awards and the IACC, and EcoSmart Platinum Venue Award from Greengage Solutions. All electric energy on-site now comes from renewable resources, reducing the resort’s carbon footprint by 65 percent. Zero-to-landfill was achieved for the sixth consecutive year. It is currently eradicating fossil fuels from the site and ensuring that zero food waste goes off-site.

The results of the Conference & Events Awards 2022 will be announced at a ceremony on 1 July 2022 at Old Billingsgate in London.
