The ahs Conference and Events facilities and team won the silver Business Tourism and Venue Award at the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards.

There were over 650 entries from across the South West, with judges looking for evidence of excellent performance for each award.

A member of the award panel visited the campus in July, where ahs was able to showcase the:

  • state of the art AV system, with adjustable lighting, sound and climate control

  • flexible spaces that include large lecture theatres, small meeting rooms and exhibition spaces

  • tailored and excellent customer service that we provide to all conference clients

  • Woodland Court and The Quads accommodation where conference delegates can stay

  • improvements made as a result of customer feedback, such as flexible catering menus, price freezes and face to face planning

  • the inclusive and accessible facilities and services, from personal emergency evacuation plans to Braille room signage

  • catering menus that use Fairtrade, sustainable and locally sourced food wherever possible

Kevin McCormick, Sales & Quality Manager for ahs, was presented the award at the ceremony on 15 November, which took place at the Apex Hotel in Bath.
