Nov 26, 2007 | News

The former BBC chief news correspondent, Kate Adie OBE, officially opened The Portland Spa Conference & Banqueting Centre during a spectacular launch evening in November.

Guests assembled in the venue’s stunning new restaurant to watch Adie unveil a commemorative plaque, ably assisted by The Portland Spa board of directors.

“The end result is phenomenal,” said Ian Denny of Opex International, who attended the opening. “I have experienced hundreds of venues across the globe during my career and I have to say that The Portland Spa team has created an exceptional and world class venue here on Portland.”

Meanwhile, Andrew Coupe, managing director of The Portland Spa, said: “It is tremendous to see 18 months of meticulous planning and preparation culminate in a truly spectacular evening. This evening gave our VIP’s a special opportunity to sample and taste our unique experience and facilities as we officially launch our World Class Conference & Banqueting Venue in the heart of Dorset’s World Heritage Coast, overlooking the 2012 Olympic sailing waters. Our £10 million investment and the work we have undertaken is making a significant contribution to the regeneration of Portland into a world-leading marine, leisure and business centre.”

This launch event is one of several that are expected to attract more than 500 VIP guests from across the UK.

The Portland Spa Conference & Banqueting Centre is fully equipped with all of the latest technological advances that go to make a modern facility with broadband throughout. The venue is so flexible it can cater for as few as 10 delegates up to a maximum of 800 in a variety of indoor and outdoor configurations that combine to make an extremely conducive climate for business, education, networking and relaxing.
