British Motor Museum celebrates award win

OVERJOYED staff are celebrating after Warwickshire’s British Motor Museum was announced the UK’s ‘Best Independent Venue’.

The conferencing and event venue was awarded the title at the CHS Awards 2020, held virtually this week.

They showcased the very best of the hospitality sector which has been hit hard during the recent months.

The awards are judged by an independent panel of over 50 event professionals who collectively crowned the museum as the category winner.

Located just off the M40 in Gaydon, the museum has over 3,000 sqm of indoor event space and over three times as much space outdoors.

Following a £2million refurbishment and after a four year exclusive use deal with Jaguar Land Rover, the British Motor Museum relaunched its conference and exhibition facilities back into the events market in July 2019, so the win was extremely welcoming after a tough year.

MD Jeff Coope said: “We are thrilled to receive the Best Independent Venue award and to be recognised by our industry peers for our excellent facilities. This award demonstrates our commitment towards ensuring we offer a holistic experience for event organisers, which combines outstanding amenities, catering and customer service.

“Since relaunching our facilities to the market and after an unprecedented year, I am incredibly proud of the resilience and adaptability demonstrated by our incredible team and to receive the Best Independent Venue accolade is great recognition of all we have achieved so far.”
