The sun shone on this lovely July afternoon in the Warwickshire countryside. Martin and Kevan from Trident were joined by 22 agency guests for an afternoon of top quality polo at the Dallas Burston Polo Club.
Firstly, the agents had a champagne reception, this was followed by a welcome and then a tour of the amazing facilities at the IXL Events Centre which includes the main room which can take 750+ people for events plus the superbly equipped smaller rooms.
Before going off to watch the polo from a delightful balcony view overlooking the pitch, a delicious lunch was provided which showcased the fantastic food produced by the caterers at the IXL.
The agents had a great afternoon relaxing in the sunshine and the comments received afterwards truly showed what a special location this is:
‘Thank you for your hospitality yesterday and for sorting the weather (which always helps). It takes a lot to WOW me these days in terms of venues but the IXL was something else. Spectacular …and everything has been thought about too in terms of access, AV and ensuring that syndicate spaces can be soundproofed etc.
‘A really versatile space with lots of hidden areas which can be utilised for other types of events. We have a briefing meeting every Monday morning where the team talk about where they have visited over the weekend – interestingly, today feedback wasn’t great on some venues so it was nice for me to rattle on about a venue which is ticked all the boxes. I obviously mentioned the food as well – which was also incredible.’ Joanne Coe, Conference Care
‘Thank you so much for yesterday, I have just been telling the other girls in the office how great it all was! We will definitely put forward the IXL to our clients, we were really impressed with what the site has to offer and how versatile it is.’ Emma Hynes, Conference Solutions Ltd
‘Thank you so much for the invite to IXL and polo, we had a great day. We both felt we were really looked after, the food was amazing!’ Halinka Viner, Bright Vision Events Ltd
‘Thank you for a great day, amazing venue, that just keeps giving-I do have an enquiry. Loved the venue, staff was great, food was amazing-there was a lot of it!!’ Claire Lee, Venue Queen
‘Lynn and I had a brilliant time. The Polo was great and I absolutely loved the venue, I thought it was fab. Please pass on my thanks to all at the venue, for a very enjoyable day’ Janet Brannigan, Conference Contacts
