“We (Amey Rail) have ran six full day events with the venue over the past year. I cannot adequately praise the facilities and staff enough. Our events always involve a weird-and-wonderful ‘team building’ activity as well as your average conference elements; speakers, presentations etc, and we always therefore require strange set-ups and ‘extras’…the staff could not do anymore to accommodate these ‘specifics’ and go above and beyond what is necessary; allowing us to use the space to our requirements and add-on whatever we need!
At our last events we even utilised the volleyball court for a ‘Sports Day’! I cannot envisage there will ever be a need for us to use any other venue – they have it all!
Beyond the on-the-day event the assistance on the lead up to book/plan is impeccable, queries are answered quickly, suggestions are forthcoming – fantastic! The staff support on the day is really good; with IT support for those tedious technical struggles which is invaluable, the catering staff are always busy refreshing coffee/tea, the snacks are always delicious and readily available; with some lovely touches like a ‘sweet shop’ in the afternoon which goes down brilliantly with our teams (especially when we’re making them get out of their seats and get active!)!
There is always someone on hand to help, the food is superb and presented far above that you would expect at a conference. Even the after-care/follow up is an unexpected delight! Due to the geography of our projects we are next hosting an event in London…the mere thought of dealing with another venue is terrifying after the superb support from Kettering Conference Centre!
I fail to believe that we will be so well accommodated anywhere else! Don’t delay; you need this venue! 10 out of 10!”
“I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you both for all the hard work that went into yesterday’s event. We have had really good feedback about the venue and from an events perspective it was so nice to discuss aspects of the event beforehand and then not have to chase anything throughout the day (i.e. the quick turnaround at lunch, resetting the main room, bringing the leftover dessert up for the afternoon break etc.). Your flexibility allowing us early access to set up the night before and the morning of was appreciated as well. Please pass on our thanks to the team for their efficiency and friendly manner throughout – it didn’t go unnoticed!”
“I cannot say how great the service was at our convention last week and the feedback from the delegates praises everything from the toilets to the food! All the team, Helen, Chris and everyone was great and Sophie was brilliant in the run up to it. Thank you so much.”
“Really good feedback with regards to the whole event. Staff bent over backwards to support the morning. Brilliant people to work with.”
“Thank you for all your help and assistance towards the NHS conference that took place yesterday, we really appreciate your kindness towards our needs and changes for the conference. We were over satisfied with your responses to our adjustments and I look forward to working with you again in the future. Kieran you was a star! and Sophie your customer service was brilliant.”
“We have used this facility for the past 7 years and we have been very impressed with the staff who are very attentive and always willing to help out and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you to everyone concerned and see you next year.”

“We worked with the teams from Catalyst Corby and North Northants Together to put on the North Northamptonshire Summit and were the first large conference to use the centre after its refurbishment. Ted and his team did a great job for us under tight time pressure. We found them easy to work with and very accommodating. On the day itself we had around 450 delegates turn up, some 50 more than we were expecting, but the centre coped very well and just got on with it professionally and unobtrusively.”

“The Mayoress and I wish to say a huge thank you to you and all your staff who helped with the success of our Mayor Making Dinner. The food and service was excellent, please pass on thanks to all those who helped make the evening run so smoothly.”

Former Mayor of the Borough of Kettering
“Thank you for all your help and support for the event, it was a big success and many comments were passed on how professional the whole thing was which was a big relief for me! Your attention to detail and accommodating our requirements on the day made the event go very smoothly.”

“The night was brilliant, everyone had a fantastic time. Everything ran like clockwork, the staff and everyone were amazing. I think it will be spoke about for weeks to come here and people are already asking about next year!”
“I’d like to thank all of the KCC staff for the amazing baptism we had. I cannot fault a thing.
The food was absolutely lovely; plenty of it with a good variety.
The staff on duty were very attentive, anything we asked for was done, and they all worked so hard. They were friendly, efficient yet unobtrusive.”
“I wanted to say a very big thank you to the KCC team for our Christmas Party in the Lakeside Suite. Our staff had a wonderful evening and have said how great the room looked, the food was perfect and the service was friendly and efficient.”
