Busy July for Lancaster Conferences

Lancaster Conferences has had a fantastic July with the privilege of hosting a number of large scale national events.

Throughout the month, the Lancaster Conferences team worked really hard to ensure that each event ran seamlessly. With many conferences, day meetings and a graduation week, July was indeed a very busy month.

UK Challenge kicked things off at the beginning of the month when they brought 500 keen and competitive corporate delegates onto the University campus as part of their yearly outdoor team building event.

Each team of six was challenged physically and intellectually to solve puzzles, codes and missions before reaching their next check point. Each stage of the event was timed, with the overall winners completing the course in just under an astounding 2 hours and 48 minutes - a time they are very proud of.

With the Lake District being on the University’s doorstep, during the days the teams headed off to complete the cycling, kayaking and forest legs of the event. After the busy and energetic days, the delegates were welcomed back to Lancaster University for their presentation evenings, a hog roast and a much needed comfy place to rest.

Not to be outdone by all the physical activity, in July the organisation also hosted the annual Association for the Teaching of Psychology Conference. This event brought just under 200 people on to the campus and was very well received.

Throughout the week the group utilised its George Fox and Charles Carter complex for its meeting and exhibition, along with the bar areas for evening networking. The event organiser commented: “Fabulous conference, well done to everyone and the Lancaster Conference team were, in my opinion, the best we've ever had.” Finally, the team at Lancaster Conferences offered its support to assist and marshal at the Lancaster Race for Life. The charity event took place at Lancaster University for the fifth year running on Sunday 26th July and attracted over 700 competitors who raised £50,000. The team really enjoyed getting involved in the event and can’t wait for next year.
