Celebrating its sixth year, the CHS Awards (Conference & Hospitality Show Awards) were held virtually in light of the pandemic and showcased the very best of the hospitality sector, which has been hit hard during the recent months.
The CHS Awards are judged by an independent panel of more than 50 event professionals from leading agencies throughout the UK, who collectively crowned the British Motor Museum as the winner of the Best Independent Venue category.
Located just off the M40 in Gaydon, the British Motor Museum has more than 3,000 sqm of internal event space, as well as an additional 9,700 sq m of hard standing external event space. Following a £2 million refurbishment and after a four year exclusive use deal with Jaguar Land Rover, the British Motor Museum relaunched its conference and exhibition facilities back into the events market in July 2019, so the win was extremely welcoming after a tough year.
Jeff Coope, managing director at the British Motor Museum, said: “We are thrilled to receive the Best Independent Venue award and to be recognised by our industry peers for our excellent facilities. This award demonstrates our commitment towards ensuring we offer a holistic experience for event organisers, which combines outstanding amenities, catering and customer service.
“Since relaunching our facilities to the market and after an unprecedented year, I am incredibly proud of the resilience and adaptability demonstrated by our incredible team and to receive the Best Independent Venue accolade is great recognition of all we have achieved so far.”
