Event proves everyone’s cup of tea
11:30am Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in News
Businesses from across South Cheshire checked into Crewe Hall for a networking event with a difference.
The hotel welcomed more than 30 Chamber members to an afternoon tea in the plush surroundings of the Great Library.
General manager Mart Louwerse told how the hotel was a 24-hour business employing more than 200 people in roles including front of house, kitchens, spa, housekeeping and banqueting.
Business was buoyant with more people making hotel and spa bookings months in advance.
He said: “People are once again planning ahead, a sign that the recession is loosening its grip. They still want value for money but don’t mind paying for quality.”
The event was an opportunity for the hotel to promote its luxury conference facilities – a growing area of business.
Chamber members enjoyed an award-winning afternoon tea before a guided tour of the Jacobean mansion taking in its state rooms, historic chapel, Sheridan lounge, Hall of Pillars and Victorian kitchens.
Among the sectors represented were employment law, IT, PR, property, accountancy, child care, tourism and translation, Chief executive Paul Colman said: “We like to offer members a chance to network in a variety of settings. The hotel is an asset to Crewe and provided a truly memorable afternoon.”
December 13 will offer networking with a festive flavour when the Chamber hosts its Christmas get-together at Rookery Hall.
