The perfect conference
Gregynog is an established venue within the educational conference market, operating as an historic house conference centre for over 50 years, although the first meeting of the League of Nations was also held here in the 1920s. We are now witnessing expansion into the commercial market being central to all the major cities in Wales and offering a unique, culturally significant venue, with excellent customer service.
Recent investment includes a high tech property management system for on-line bookings and event management, state of the art audio-visual equipment and refurbished interiors. Industry endorsement is demonstrated via our premier status with Hospitality Assured and Meetings Industry Association membership. Gregynog is proud to hold bronze Investor in People and silver Green Tourism awards.
Our efforts are rewarded by the level of repeat business we receive from conference organisers, many of whom fall in love with Gregynog – it has an indefinable something – and are grateful to know that any revenue they invest in conferencing helps to maintain the estate and this important hall; a cultural treasure for Wales.
The location, set within a 750 acre National Nature Reserve, incorporating Grade 1 Listed gardens, enables Gregynog to secure interesting conferences from environmental groups such as the British Antarctic Survey and Natural Resources Wales, as well as political conferences including the Welsh Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru and International Politics each year with delegates from around the world. Medical conferences are healthy in number, with the UK Rural Doctors Conference and Palliative Care, both returning clients. The Welsh Air Ambulance have space to land three helicopters with Bryn Terfel dropping in for their last event.
The beauty of the art and furniture collections makes Gregynog a special place to explore; as recently discovered by the Antiques Roadshow.
Food was of exceptionally high standard, conference was resounding success.
