De Vere and Nottingham Conferences supports Corporate Games 2017

July 20, 2017

Nottingham Conferences, one of the group’s Partner properties, this month played host to the Corporate Games 2017, which saw over 5,000 entrants, helpers and coordinators descend on the University of Nottingham campus to partake in Europe’s largest annual multi-sports festival for businesses.

The University of Nottingham’s multisport complex was the epicentre of the Games providing many of the facilities for the 23 sports. This includes their new £40m David Ross Sports Village. The Centre houses a huge multi-court sports hall, seven glass squash courts and an international standard Table Tennis hall in addition to impressive accommodation in the surrounding area.

The Games Sport Patron Helen Richardson Walsh MBE proudly presented many medals to the successful organisations over the weekend as well as cutting the ribbon to open the SuperCentre celebration for the Games.

Ben Sedgemore, Games Director for the UK Corporate Games said ” The Games has been a resounding success and we could not have asked for more. Even the weather was on our side! The facilities are excellent in Nottinghamshire, with top quality venues for all of our 23 sports and array of celebrations. The feedback that we have been receiving has been wonderful and it is a credit to everyone who has supported the Games. People have been blown away by Nottingham and we are delighted that we made the decision to bring the Games here in 2018. Thank you so much!”
