New group experiences at UniSpace Sunderland drive 76% rise in day meetings bookings

National Glass Centre at UniSpace Sunderland
UniSpace Sunderland, the conference and events arm of the University of Sunderland, today announces a 76% rise in the number of day meetings bookings compared with the same period in 2012/2013. The increase follows the redevelopment of UniSpace’s group experience packages.

A £2.3 million refurbishment of National Glass Centre in 2013 included an overhaul of the hot glass studios, doubling their capacity and making the areas more suitable for group glass blowing experiences. UniSpace has now also packaged a number of other group experiences available across its various venues, including wall climbing in the CitySpace building and TV and radio show recording in the university’s Media Centre. These are now available as packages to be added to any meeting or event at UniSpace Sunderland.  

Sharon Olver, Business Development Manager at UniSpace Sunderland, comments: “We’re delighted to see this boost in day bookings, thanks largely to the redevelopment of our group experiences. These are activities that you just won’t find anywhere else and we’ve received some great feedback already.  

“We’ll be attending The Meetings Show for the first time this year and are looking forward to talking to planners about the new packages. We’ll be entering anyone that books an appointment to see us at the show into a prize draw for a group experience for up to 12 delegates, as well as giving away a beautiful unique piece of glassware produced in our very own National Glass Centre. Anyone from the meetings sector that re-tweets our content will be in with a chance!”  

UniSpace Sunderland will be exhibiting at The Meetings Show next month on stand D12, where they will be showcasing the new group experience packages.
