Brief

The programme for a four-day conference on Artificial Intelligence was attended by 30 delegates from all over Europe. The conference included dinner in a traditional Cambridge College setting. The itinerary also incorporated other elements of the ‘Cambridge Experience’ such as punting and a walking tour.

 


 


Event

Kathryn Robertson, Events & Operations Administrator at the Institute for Manufacturing said: “We contacted Meet Cambridge about six weeks in advance to identify suitable and available venues to meet our brief. They came back to us quickly with four or five choices so we could make the final decision. This is a very efficient service and saves so much time for event organisers.
 

“We chose Trinity Hall which ticked all the boxes in providing a traditional College setting for the dinner. The team there were very professional, helping with menu choices and they were also very flexible as inevitably numbers kept changing! We used the Chetwode Room for pre-dinner drinks and then had dinner in the Leslie Stephen Room.
 


 

Feedback

“Everything went well on the evening itself. We had excellent feedback from delegates who enjoyed the meal and really appreciated the special surroundings which contributed to a memorable time for them in Cambridge.
 

“We use Trinity Hall regularly and have a good relationship with the team who know what we need and deliver excellent events for us every time.”
