Devon Life: Spring networking delight

9 Jun 2017

Blog Topic News

Earlier in the year, we hosted some of the region’s best business minds at the Devon Life Business Spring Launch. The event was a fantastic opportunity to welcome people to Buckfast Abbey and to show off the latest room additions to our conference offering.

Guests represented a wide range of Devon businesses from both the public and private sector and were treated to an inspiring presentation by David Crossman from DNA of Engagement who spoke on the importance of the surrounding environment when considering off-site conferences, networking and team building events. Something we greatly support at Buckfast Abbey with the beautiful grounds we are situated in.

The event took place in our new Dart View conference rooms. The rooms are fully equipped with built in PCs, Apple Air Play, HDMI Interface, remote-controlled blinds and full A/C, with Dart View 4 also having a hearing loop. Whilst providing our conferences with up-to-date digital capabilities is essential, often the biggest ‘wow’ we hear when people enter the rooms is because of the impressive vista of the passing river and gardens outside. As was echoed in David Crossman’s talk, the room’s offer an ‘outside in’ feeling and really help to encourage productivity and an enjoyable experience for those using them.

To top off the fantastic event, attendees enjoyed a delicious array of homemade light bites made by our team of expert chefs using locally sourced produce.
